    I don't believe so. I read quite a while back they stopped bringing him out. Maybe someone who's been recently can chime in but I believe he's not appearing anymore.
    There were technical problems with him frequently so they suspended it.

    Aww that sucks! I saw someone post it online and was hoping it’s still there. Thanks for the responses!

    Sadly, they did in fact end this a while back. Such a bummer because i really enjoyed seeing Remy.

    I think they stopped it about 3-4 years ago. I don't remember seeing him when we ate there in Thanksgiving of 2016. I can't remember if we ate there over Christmas of 2015. I'm sure we did, but I can't recall seeing him then either.

    Chef Remy has not been at Les Chefs since October 2013.

    We enjoyed his visits and still think of him whenever we dine there.

    Other than Mickey, Remy is the only other rodent I don't mind seeing when I'm in a restaurant. Unfortunately Remy has moved back to the real France and is no longer in Chefs de France at Epcot. :sad::sad1::sad2:

    I wish he were still there, but I'm terribly grateful we got to see him (in 2013-- we almost missed him altogether!).

    Is he actually in the Paris park now?

    I wish he was still there so my kids could see him. They’d get a kick out of it.

    We luckily saw him on 2 trips a while back, but I so wish he was still there.

    Sadly, as others say Remy was done away with! We only had one experience with him and I was so excited my family still teases me about it. I was sick and also on a break from being away caring for my father so I was pretty blah. My husband and kids drove up for the weekend and we had lunch at France one day and I about died when Remy was wheeled over! I couldn't believe it as we have never seen him there before but always hoped. I started to stand up and was reprimanded by his escort to not touch him, lol! I'm glad we got to experience him once and hope they bring him back as it's a very charming feature of Les Chefs!

    Before our trip I called WDW dining and asked when he came out, and they gave me his schedule so we'd be sure to see him. There was a family at the table next to us who were there to see him also, and apparently they'd been lingering awhile. My SO heard them getting ready to leave, saying they guessed they weren't going to get to see him, so my SO leaned over and told them, "Wait five more minutes." They did, and Remy came out five minutes later.

    They almost missed him, and that was I believe October of 2013-- they wouldn't have gotten another chance. My SO just happened to overhear them.

    There is an entire Remy attraction at Disneyland Paris, including a Remy ride and the Bistrot Chez Remy. Heavenly.
