    Interesting! Although that green hut looks like it belongs to the Green Army Men.

    Well it certainly looks like they are clearing that space to build something we can hope it is Rataouille.

    Possibly not a big enough space for that? But I suppose it might just be the start.

    Now that I come to think about it, the Tram Tour has traditionally had a space about that size beside the tour route, for maintenance access, storage and such. It used to be where Toon Studio now stands. Could they be creating a new one?

    A new dark ride is just what Paris needs, and an exclusive one will be even better.
    But I still want Indiana Jones Adventure more!

    Ha ha! Only Disney would dare to spend millions building a Parisian street a stone's throw from the real thing!

    ^LOL, now all those who were planning a visit to DLRP without setting foot into Paris will now have an opportunity to "see" Paris without leaving the resort!

    I still think visiting Paris is a must, but hey, maybe this will serve a niche.

    Both WDW and DLC have Main Street's - a typical 19th century town in the USA. And prehaps just a few stown throws from same looking streets. So you're right, Disney does this.

    Rattatouille is 1950's Paris so it'd be a nostalgic street view of Paris as Main Street is of USA.

    I'm quite excited that this finally seems to be going ahead. While I'm not wild about the idea of yet another random Pixar movie jammed into the Studios Park (it deserves the name less and less each year) it looks like it'll be a cracking ride with some great theming. And a Studios exclusive, which is always welcome!

    Is it '50s? I had never thought about it. Always seemed 'timeless' to me.

    Ah, you're right, it's timeless. I had to look the film again. There are elements of the 50s and 70s. There are 60s cars on street and also one Smart car, but it could be a gag. The graphics and sets are very 50s and so are books, advertisement, timecards, furnitures, curtains and home appliances.. and there're no skyscrapers in Paris (but Eiffel Tower). But, Post-it stickers, barcodes and DNA test came in the 70s and the b/w tvs and phones are 70s models. In one newspaper it is talking about Euro currency and all price are quoted in . So, it's timeless in a nostalgic way. No computers or mobile phones.
