Walt Disney World guests will get a new kind of dining experience later this year when Epcot opens a space-themed restaurant.
Offering faux views high above the Earth, thanks to large screens wrapping around the interior, the restaurant will open next to the existing Mission: Space attraction in the Future World section of the park.
“No dining experience on Earth can match what’s in store, because this new restaurant will take you into outer space for incredible dining experiences that are ‘out of this world,’” Disney Parks editorial content director Thomas Smith wrote in a blog post. “Our friends at Patina Restaurant Group will operate the new restaurant, and they’ve developed a menu that features internationally-inspired cuisine, more than 1,000 bottles of the world’s finest wines and a wide selection of craft beer.”
Details on the restaurant have been scarce since it was first announced at the 2017 D23 Expo, and Disney didn’t offer any specifics on when in 2019 the restaurant will welcome guests.
It’s just one of many changes coming to Epcot over the next few years. Beyond new attractions like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and a “Guardians of the Galaxy”-themed roller coaster, the park’s entrance will get a major overhaul and a new Future World pavilion in the space formerly known as Wonders of Life.
