You heard it here first! Earlier in May, WDWNT leaked a number of details revealing the location, theme and storyline, and design elements of Epcot’s up-and-coming space center restaurant. We now have further details, like a prospective name and tech details.
Today, a job posting put up by Patina Restaurant Group looking to hire European candidates for the Cultural Representative Program revealed either the restaurant’s name or codename, Space 220. The gist is that much like the International Space Station (ISS), the restaurant will also be manned by an international crew. The new space-themed restaurant will make guests feel as if they are actually traveling through space via the use of a 250-foot-long digital screen wrapping around the curved room. This technology is similar to the screens used at the One World Trade Center and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Your adventure begins with an elevator ride simulating a trip up to a space station. Once in the departure lobby, guests can check-in and then board one of two transportation chambers, leading up to a sizable dining room that can seat around 350 guests.
The new restaurant will be located between Mission Space and Test Track. Disney has yet to provide an opening date for the Space Restaurant, but it’s already under construction and set to open before 2021, which is the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. We will have more details to follow as they are released.
