The Space theme is about to expand at Epcot's Future World, with the addition of a new "out-of-this-world" dining experience.

The restaurant, which will be located adjacent to the park’s Mission: SPACE attraction, will invite guests to travel into space for amazing dining experiences in the stars. Walt Disney Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald shared a first look at the restaurant during the Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts presentation at D23 Expo 2017.

“We know our guests love dining at Epcot – and the restaurants really are out of this world,” Tom said. “Now we’re about to create one that takes that literally.”

The new space restaurant will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group. Patina Restaurant Group operates several other restaurants at Walt Disney World including Tutto Italia and Via Napoli at Epcot and Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs.

Unused land between Mission: SPACE and Test Track will be the location of the restaurant, which continues to leave the Wonders of Life pavilion available for future projects.

At EXPO 86 in Vancouver, Canada, Seagrams was the corporate sponsor for the Fair's VIP club (a contractual requirement for every fair), which they named the "Canadian Club" (and they used the same script as the eponymous whiskey). There was a rumor (unfounded, alas) that one room would be named the "Nanaimo Bar" (Nanaimo is a town in BC and the Nanaimo Bar is a sweet baked BC delicacy).
