A recently-filed permit reveal more details about the Ratatouille attraction coming to Epcot’s France pavilion.

The permit is for a project referred to as “Project MI,” and calls for “construction of a new building, roadways and landscaped areas.”

The new building in question will house the new attraction. The documents included in the filing show the building in the area between the France and Morocco pavilions.

Construction plans also show a path that will take guests to the entrance of the attraction. Upon closer inspection, there is a restroom located along the path.

Disney already has an existing ride at Disneyland Paris called Ratatouille: The Adventure. It’s a 4-D dark ride that “shrinks” riders to the size a rodent as they maneuver their way through Gusteau’s.

In July, Disney confirmed a Ratatouille attraction was coming to Disney World.

No additional details about the attraction have been released since then.

An official opening date hasn’t been announced, but Disney previously stated the attraction would be ready in time for Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021.

The Ratatouille ride is one several currently in the works at the resort.

Epcot is also getting a Guardians of the Galaxy coaster that will be built at the former site of Ellen’s Energy Adventure.

A Tron coaster will be built in the Magic Kingdom.

And over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, construction is well underway for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, a 14-acre themed land. Mickey Mouse will also be featured in his own ride: Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, which replaces The Great Movie Ride.
