Remy @ Les Chef de France

I understand at an animatronic Remy makes an appearance at Le Chef de France a few times a day. Does anyone know when will be a good time to catch Remy at the restaurant? Thanks.

REMY Info:

1) Inside Les Chefs de France.
2) Monday-thru-Saturday at 12:30, 1:40, 2:50 & 5:20pm
3) Visiting
. . . he usually comes out right on schedule
. . . the cart makes one trip around the eatery
. . . you must wait until he comes to your table *
. . . you cannot get up and go over to him, handlers guard him
. . . if you miss him, he does not make a second trip
. . . you must wait for the next scheduled time
. . . if your ADR is near a scheduled time, be early
. . . you may not be seated on time, and will miss him
. . . you might be in line waiting for a table when he appears
. . . if so, you wait for the next scheduled trip

* If people gathered around the cart, it would clog the aisles. Guests
might be pressing their shorts against another guest's tabletop and
food (yuck, gross). Also, he's temperamental and occasionally doesn't
appear at all - and without prior notice. Could be technical glitches or even
absenteeism. There are times he breaks down during the tour and has
to stop visiting. So don't overly promise the little ones.

Here is Remy's schedule:

Inside Les Chefs de France.
Monday-Saturday at 12:30, 1:40, 2:50 & 5:20pm

Note that these times are the time he enters the dining room, and he makes one circuit and leaves. You would need to plan so that you are seated before he enters the dining room.

Also make sure you don't reserve on a Sunday, he doesn't appear on Sundays.

He is really cool...a very nice subtle attraction.

But you can tell that the staff are absolutely mortified by him...take a look at some of their faces when they roll him through.

EPCOT sometimes isn't as much of a cultural exchange as Disney likes to think

...especially when you ask 22 year olds to sling what they probably consider to be low quality food at exhorbinant prices and roll a toy around the restaurant to sell DVDs.

It is well worth the time and effort to see him - up close and personal

The persons who actually roll Remy around the restaurant aren't servers in the restaurant, they're actors employed by Disney.

As for whether or not the staff thinks it's silly, that's up to them, but hopefully it doesn't affect their service.

Of course its and actor...as evidenced by the horrible, stereotypical french accent.

And heren lies a further problem.

Hmm. I think my last visit was on a Sunday. I was wondering why we missed him- we were certainly there long enough.

I moved my dinner time on Tuesday to 5:30 with fingers crossed. I will check back for earlier times through Tuesday, but probably won't find earlier.

Remy's last appearance is 5:20, meaning he enters the dining room at that time. With a 5:30 reservation there is a good chance you won't see him.
