I know the 2017 remake of BatB wasn't to everyone's taste but I kinda want to see an attraction use it's aesthetics. They already did a show in Animal Kingdom based on the Jungle Book remake so I don't think the fact that it's a remake of something already present in the parks would stop it.

I think the only way we'll see any new attractions added to the current World Showcase Pavilions is if they are focused on an IP. For example I can't see the 'Rhine River Cruise' being a major pull if Disney decided to bring that project back from the depths, but Ratatouille or Beauty & the Beast would definitely bring in the crowds.

For me any new ride added to World Showcase is a huge bonus, as much as I have grown to appreciate it now I'm older, when I was a kid (and I'm sure is the case for a lot of children) once you got past the rides in Mexico & Norway, there is/was not a massive amount to keep young ones, who want to ride things entertained, although I appreciate that this has changed with Kidcot and the World Showcase Adventure games, but these weren't around when I was young.

Also, yet another rumour has sprung up regarding the possibility of adding Brazil to the World Showcase (source Blog Mickey), which is certainly very interesting, and again would be fantastic if true, another country would certainly inject new life into that side of the park.

I can't wait to see what gets announced at D23.

I feel like Ratatouille would make more sense than BatB because France pavilion is already a city-like area and Ratatouille would fit right in without the need of too much transition.

Well, luckily it's going to be Ratatouille then.

I also think it will be Ratatouille, because there is already a Beauty and the Beast area in Magic Kingdom. Yes, they can put a ride in EPCOT, but why? It would make more sense over there, and there is still room for expansion.

Well, one could argue there is also a Toy Story ride in Magic Kingdom and one at Hollywood Studios (with more on the way.) Not saying I prefer one over the other, but Ratatouille just turned ten years old a few days ago, and it doesn't seem like it's a property that stands out to most guests the way Beauty & The Beast does. Either way, the more Disney characters in Epcot the better!

That's true! I forgot about Buzz.

But I agree, I like the Disney Characters coming to EPCOT.

Even in Paris, when the movie and ride was newer and you think would be a bigger thing because of the movies setting, I never heard much buzz or overly great reviews of the ride. Most people thought it was OK/good but most people I know who went talked more about going to the restaurant for Ratatouille than the ride.

It's a good ride but it's much more family orientated than say Transformers or Spiderman, when we rode it my son was 6 months old and he rode and enjoyed it, there is nothing like that in DL so it makes a nice addition. My kids loved it and personally along with TOT I thought it was the best ride in the Studios park........but that's not saying a lot!

That's even better, I feel like EPCOT is already a tiny bit too adult and this can balance it out. Not to mention it will be a food themed ride at one of the best places in the world to get food from.
