Waiting for the Chef
It may seem odd to recreate Paris just outside of Paris, but that didn't stop Disney Imagineers from creating a California-themed park in the state of California when they designed Disney California Adventure. Over in Walt Disney Studios, though, only a small portion of the park is Parisian--an area devoted to Ratatouille and built to the house Ratatouille: Remy's Crazy Adventure. It's richly detailed, evocative of the France area at EPCOT and romanticizing of the City of Lights. And it seems successful, since it plays upon a movie's portrayal of Paris rather than attempt to precisely recreate the real thing. At the very least, it's one of the few areas of this park that I find incredibly photogenic.
