Guests will have to join a traditional queue for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, which shrinks visitors to the size of Chef Remy.

Walt Disney World’s Epcot is set to use a traditional standby queue system for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure from January 10, with virtual queues no longer in use at the resort in Florida.

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure has been using a virtual queue system since it opened on October 1. The system enabled guests to select a time to ride via the My Disney Experience app.

However, guests will now have to join a traditional queue for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, a family-friendly ride that shrinks visitors to the size of Chef Remy on a thrilling chase through Gusteau’s restaurant.

“Virtual queues continue to be helpful with the launch of popular attractions and the debut of new experiences and offerings, so we may use it again from time to time for select attractions in the future,” said Disney Parks Blog.

Disney World drops all virtual queues

In September, Disney World stopped using the virtual queue system for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, with guests returning to standby queues for the first time since the ride opened in 2019.

Walt Disney World will have no attractions using a virtual queue system when Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure moves to a standby queue system. However, guests can buy access to a Lightning Lane queue at the attraction. 

The resort is also using an individual Lightning Lane system for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, Frozen Ever After, Rise of the Resistance, Runaway Railway, Avatar Flight of Passage and Expedition Everest.

Meanwhile, Disney has been granted a patent for a ‘virtual-world simulator’ that would allow multiple visitors to enjoy a 3D virtual world without VR headsets or AR-enabled devices.
