A Rat In Paris

Some crafty folks have published some images of the plans that Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris has for a new Ratatouille dark ride.  Filed with the local authorities as part of the construction planning process, there is both a beautiful concept art style image as well as blueprints of the area.

The drawings, which you can check out here, show a highly themed facade for the large dark ride which also includes a restaurant inside a massive building.  The level of theming is a plus for the somewhat barren (my opinion) Disney Studios, though the park has made steps to improve that in recent years.

According to various websites, rumor has it that the dark ride and restaurant could open at the park in 2013.  While the attraction is a perfect fit for the Parisian parks, is there any hope for an eventual stateside copy?
