Is Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Ride At Disney Too Scary For Kids? Parents Ride Guide
As always, you know your child best.
Disney doesn’t try to make rides that are too scary for kids, but some children may have unexpected reactions to certain experiences at Disney World or Disneyland.
This parent ride guide to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will let you know about elements that kids may find concerning or scary before you get in line.
In this series, we’ll run down the ride basics to include if there are flashing lights, loud noises, spins, drops, jump scare elements, dark moments, scary themes, and overall general speed or intensity.
What Does The Ride Vehicle Look Like For Remy’s?
You’ll be seated in a trackless vehicle that looks like a little rat! How cute is this?
There are two rows that can seat 2-3 people in each row.
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Is Dark With Some 3D and 4D Elements
This ride is a dark ride, meaning that you go through a darkened show building for the attraction.
Once you are inside the show, your ratmobile will pause in front of large screens where the 3D and 4D effects will take place.
Is Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Too Scary: Jump Scares
At one point, the rats are being chased by an angry waiter.
He appears up close on screens in an aggressive manner that could make some kids jump a little in their seat. His hand bursts through a wall in 3D in a mild jump scare.
There are, however, 3D elements and 4D elements (heat and water spray) that could take a toddler by surprise and scare them.
A cork is popped directly at the audience in one scene.
Are There Drops?
No, there are not any physical drops in Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.
But there is a scene in Remy’s that makes you feel like you are dropping.
The 3D aspect of the attraction creates the feeling of falling through a roof and onto the floor of the chef’s kitchen.
This ride is completely joyful!
There are only fun adventures to be had as you help create the world-famous dish, Ratatouille, on this ride.
There is nothing scary in this ride as a whole.
You will see some mild cartoon violence on the screens.
Is Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Too Scary For Toddlers: Speed
This is a moderately slow-moving ride that makes its way through the show building.
Motion Sickness On Remy’s Ride At Epcot
There are some sharp spins and turns that can cause a little tummy tickle, but nothing too fast or scary to be concerned about on Remy’s.
However, if your child is prone to motion sickness, please know that they could feel queasy at the end of this attraction.
Taking the 3D glasses off can help with this feeling and still allow you to enjoy most of the ride.
Age Rating: Can Toddlers Ride Remy’s?
We recommend this attraction for kids of all ages as long as mild darkness and motion sickness is not a trigger for them.
