Epcot Space Restaurant construction - September 2018
Posted: Friday October 12, 2018 11:29am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

This is a look at the construction progress on the new space-themed restaurant coming to Epcot next year.

When it opens in 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'm just sayin..But, does anyone just want this back on the other side of the park seems just like a waste to not see it back here where there using it for a restaurant..

When reservations open tomorrow, will it be possible to reserve online or will you need to call in?

The food there has improved greatly there in recent years.

I've heard that's the advantage of San Angel Inn where you don't really want to see what your food looks like :p

I was hoping there would be references to the ISTC or Mission: SPACE in the restaurant somewhere but after seeing the video those hopes have been dashed. Still looks cool though!

To me it looks pretty similar to the concept art. Lighter, I guess, but it's a little hard to tell what the in-person effect is from photos. You also don't want to be eating in the dark, however atmospheric that might be. I would be among those who would go to the lounge for an over-priced cocktail or two, but probably not to eat as there are still options in World Showcase that interest me more.

Exactly. Should be easy to book!

Anyone who is saying negative things without being there...keep it up! I want less people trying to go when I want to eat there

I dunno. On the site that shall not be named, they have a panoramic photo of the restaurant. It looks very close to the concept art. But, yeah, that space elevator has that Mission to Mars vibe going on.

Like a true Disney "fan," repeat what you know, begrudge what you don't.

I like how this is an homage to Mission to Mars, Space Station X-1, and Coral Reef all rolled into an addition rather than a replacement.

Looks kinda nice to me. I like the 'darker' look compared to the 'blue glow' from the concept art. Interested to expereince this in person. Sept. 20th is going to be a absolute bloodbath online when reservations open up. I'll be there....with a couple of buckets. -

A Emergency Airlock leading to escape pods. Give me a break. Emergency Exit signes are supposed to be visible and there is a lot of glass hence, yep, reflection.

The main center view across multiple windows is not “certain angles”. It’s also something that did not have to happen.
