PHOTOS - Epcot's Space-themed restaurant takes shape

Mar 08, 2019 in "Space 220 Restaurant"

Posted: Friday March 8, 2019 10:26am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The 250ft curved projection wall at the upcoming Space-themed restaurant in Epcot's Future World is now very much visible in these aerial views of the construction site.

When it opens in late 2019, expect to see some elaborate special effects as part of the experience, including a 250ft projection screen that will wrap around the restaurant. Seating will be on two tiers, along with a lounge.

Located between Mission: SPACE and Test Track in Future World, the new space restaurant will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group.

I did Flight of Passage and Everest back to back and ended up having to go and basically lay down on the old Rivers of Light seats for a good hour because I felt so bad. FoP normally doesn't affect me at all, but the backwards portion of Everest is always a bit rough. The combo was apparently just untenable. As soon as the backwards section kicked in I was just focused on not throwing up on the ride.

In 2019, due to the hurricane, no one was at the parks. We rode Seven Dwarves 3 times in a row with no wait. The kids wanted to go again. I just couldn't!

I had a solo day at IoA in 2019 and I rode Hagrid's Twice, then Forbidden Journey and I was feeling it. I feel that I could probably ride Spider-Man ten times in a row though. Meanwhile my wife can't do Star Tours but can do Flight of Passage. However, she won't do Everest and Flight of Passage on the same day. Much earlier in IoA's life span, my brother in law and I went over there. Didn't know what Spider-Man was so didn't bother going on it. We just hit the roller coasters. I remember doing Dueling Dragons back to back and regretting it so we went over to Cat in the Hat for something family friendly. We didn't now that it spun and I nearly booted on Cat in the Hat.

We did FJ once. My wife was not well for hours afterwards, and while I was ok, I know I won't be able to ride it again after FoP affected me last month. Getting old. It happens. :)

I couldn't do Back to the Future Ride anymore. I would get off the ride in pain. When they switched over to the Simpsons, I was going to do it once just to do it. I loved it - no pain. I do it multiple times whenever I'm in the park.

A couple of years ago, I had an extra day after a conference in LA. Went to USH by myself. Rope dropped FJ. Went through the single rider line. Since the SR line is considerably shorter than the regular line, I was the first (and only) person on the ride. And since the regular line takes so long to walk through, I completed my ride before the first regular line folks had made it to load. So the TMs let me ride again immediately. This was a mistake.

If you can’t do FJ twice in a row, you aren’t getting old. You’ve arrived. Soon Toy Story Mania will become a “once a trip.”

I can't do Forbidden Journey twice in a row, I'm getting old.

We have only been to Universal once because my teenage daughter had to sit out after the first few hours. She got so sick to her stomach from all of the simulators and she ended up asking to go home two days early. We obviously did not let her do that but it was not fun watching her sit out every ride. She has no issues with any rides at Disney except sometimes rockin roller coaster. There is some thing about those screens. 🤢

I hate, despise, loathe even, The Simpsons Ride. Purely because they took away the Back to the Future Ride for it. Literally painted the building and replaced some videos. Laziest ride ever. What’s next replacing Jurassic Park with Gilligan’s Island?

Soarin' is barely a simulator. There's not really much movement; it's more like watching an IMAX film than anything else. Flight of Passage definitely has a bit more going on in terms of physical motion than Soarin', but it's still nothing compared to a ride like Forbidden Journey.
