Eek... A Mouse!!!

No, it's actually a rat, but he's such a cute little rat. and he's a chef, which is why we have to report this on Mealtrip.com. We've known for a while that Remy would be getting his very own activity for the 20th Food and Wine Festival at Epcot, and now we know what the "giveaway" part of the activity is.
The surprise pins for Remy's Ratatouille Hide & Squeak activity during Epcot's 20th Food & Wine Festival.
Okay, so this is going to be very similar to Epcot's Egg-stravaganza in the Spring. It's a scavenger hunt of sorts, and you have to start your adventure by purchasing a map at the Festival Center, Pin Central, Port of Entry, and/or the World Traveler (these are all gift shops that offer specific Food and Wine merchandise). The map shows all the countries around the World Showcase Lagoon, and you'll fine a collection of Remy stickers in your map-pack as well. The whole idea is, that you're supposed to visit all of the countries around World Showcase, and look for the hidden ingredient that Remy needs to make his Ratatouille.
It's still a mystery as to what exactly you'll be looking for… just a large tomato? A large tomato with a little Remy beside it? We probably won't know until September 25th, 2015, when the game begins! Once you have found a specific ingredient, you place the corresponding sticker on the country where you found it. So for example, if you find Remy's cheese in Canada, you'll need to place your cheese sticker over Canada on your map.
Once you've found all of the ingredients, in all of the countries, take your completed map back to one of the gift shops mentioned above… check your results… and you'll be able to pick out a special surprise! (No, you don't "need" to have a completely correct map… it's okay if you've missed a few).
The surprise giveaway is one of six Remy's Ratatouille Hide & Squeak pins pictured above! They're all so cute... I may have to play more than once!
Here's the official nuts and bolts provided by Disney…
