Space-Themed Restaurant Lands in Future World at Epcot

Last summer, Disney shared the news that a one-of-a-kind, space-themed restaurant is currently planned for Epcot that’ll offer you amazing meals and a spectacular view – from high above Earth.

Today, Disney shared that this restaurant will be built in a newly developed area located between the park’s Mission:  SPACE and Test Track attractions.

Once completed, the restaurant will invite you to travel to space for an amazing dining experience in the stars.  The new restaurant will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group, led by Nick Valenti, which operates several other restaurants around Walt Disney World Resort, including Tutto Italia and Via Napoli at Epcot and Morimoto Asia and Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante at Disney Springs.  

But Epcot Guests don’t have to wait until the restaurant opens to enjoy a thrilling adventure in space.  Last summer, the park’s Mission:  SPACE attraction launched new experiences:  the enhanced Orange Mission offers a truly intense experience that lets your Clients feel the force of an actual space launch en route to Mars; while the all-new, family-friendly Green Mission takes them on an exciting orbit around Earth.

And this summer – starting June 9, 2018 – Star-Lord and Gamora from “Guardians of the Galaxy” will take your Clients on a musical journey through the cosmos in “Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live!” as a part of “Incredible Summer” at Walt Disney World Resort.  You can catch “Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live!” at the America Gardens Theater at Epcot, five times a day from June 9 – August 19, 2018.
