According to multiple sources, a recently filed permit by Disney point towards significant work around the French Pavilion at Epcot.

You can check out a screenshot of the permit below:

The permit states that the project area is set to be 5.29 acres which is more than enough room for an additional attraction. The most logical attraction would of course be Ratatouille: The Adventure from Disneyland Paris.

Lets assume this is the case, the Paris attraction only takes up just over an acre of space so it is possible that this space is going to be used for more than just a single attraction. I am thinking this could also be the beginnings of a new country making its way into World Showcase.

Combine this with the fact that part of the space is behind the existing Impressions De France show and the rest seems to be situated next door to the French Pavilion.

Just yesterday we released a post rating all of the rumours surrounding Epcot and marked the chances of seeing a Ratatouille ride 8/10 alongside a new country coming to World Showcase a 10/10!

Of course this is all speculation currently but the permit suggests that something is coming to the area around the French Pavilion at Epcot. What are your thoughts?
