Location of Epcot’s Space Themed Restaurant confirmed by Disney World
At last year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, Bob Chapek announced and in which an unexpected announcement of a space-themed restaurant is officially coming to Epcot. There were certainly a lot of questions of when and where the restaurant was going to be place and when it was going to be opened, we got some more details from Disney about it.
Rumors were going around earlier this year of when Disney executives were spotted by the Wonders of Pavilion that housed many classic Epcot attractions from the past and many were suggesting that the restaurant would be installed there. Those rumors can be dismissed and Disney has officially confirmed that the new restaurant is going to be built in a new area between Mission: SPACE and Test Track. The restaurant will invite guests to feel immersed that their in actual space for a unique dining experience in the stars.
“We know our guests love dining at Epcot – and the restaurants really are out of this world,” Tom said. “Now we’re about to create one that takes that literally.” Tom Fitzgerald is one of the Imagineers who provided the details from last year’s D23 Expo about the restaurant.
This will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group, led by Nick Valenti, who operates several other restaurants around Walt Disney World, including Tutto Italia and Via Napoli at Epcot, Morimoto Asia and Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante at Disney Springs.
Disney did not confirm an official opening date yet for the space-themed restaurant for the park and more details will be announced when they become available.
The Mission: SPACE attraction reopened in the summer of 2017 after a lengthy-refurbishment. Orange Mission offers an intense experience of feeling the G-Force from a rocket launch towards Mars, much like the original Mission: Space attraction, while Green Mission is more of a family-friendly to give guests to orbit around Earth and younger children can be also provided with the X-2 Booster seats to join in with the Mission.
