NEW Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Game
This is one of our favorite passive Free Kid Games at Disney. Much like Hidden Mickeys, or Hidden Pascals you can do this on your own whenever you need a little non-ride or downtime. Stop at the gift shop to pick up your Hide and Squeak map. Each map is about the same cost as whatever souvenir they offer that year. Once you’re finished playing the game you get to choose one of the limited edition Remy items. 2022 will see a New Remy’s Ratatouille Hide and Squeak Game and prizes too!
