Spring has sprung in Paris and this weekend Paris had the hottest temperature on record since 1880 at 72 degrees! So it was a good time for Max, D&M contributor and DLPWelcome webmaster, to return to the parks and shoot some great photos of the Ratatouille ride. This time there is something new!

What has changed since our last visit is that the scaffolding has been removed on all the façades on the path located between the entrance of Toy Story Playland and the Ratatouille Plaza. This is the path that guests will walk along to access the ride. The path is still closed but that doesn’t stop us from shooting photos. Remember that the official grand opening is apparently now set for July 15th with soft opening starting around June 23 for cast members and June 28 for AP and WDS guests!

Some scaffolding has yet to be removed, probably in a week or two, or less…

Nothing new, though, on the “great hall” building designed like an old Parisian covered market under which guests will probably wait in the queue line…

There is a bit more construction on the fountain at the center of the plaza…

And we will end this Ratatouille update with a great video filmed by DLRPFans just a few days ago.
