Epcot’s Future World will see an expansion the Space theme with the addition of a new “out-of-this-world” dining experience.
The new restaurant, which will invite guests to travel into space for amazing dining experiences in the stars, will be located adjacent to the park’s Mission: SPACE attraction. Walt Disney Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald shared a first look at the restaurant during the Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts presentation at D23 Expo 2017.
“We know our guests love dining at Epcot – and the restaurants really are out of this world,” Fitzgerald said. “Now we’re about to create one that takes that literally.”
The new space restaurant will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group. Patina Restaurant Group operates several other restaurants at Walt Disney World including Tutto Italia and Via Napoli at Epcot and Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs.
Unused land between Mission: SPACE and Test Track will be the location of the restaurant, which continues to leave the Wonders of Life pavilion available for future projects.
