PHOTOS - Epcot's Space-themed restaurant construction update

Jan 24, 2019 in "Space 220 Restaurant"

The upcoming Space-themed restaurant in Epcot's Future World is beginning to take shape, with the outline of the building now clearly visible.

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 was like that last year. Had my big trip at the end of February for Galaxies Edge planned out for a year and a half. 2 weeks before hand it was announce Micky and Minnie's would open the day after I left... I was so ticked but by then too late to change. It was still a great trip though.

The detail I'm unclear on is whether the back projection wall (exterior wall) has it's own (presumably starfield) projections? I assume that the "mirror element" is for foreground elements such as spaceships, asteroids, WALL-E, etc.). That would make it essentially another version of Pepper's Ghost (or since it's in orbit, Space Ghost Coast-to-Coast!). I hope there will be lots of easter eggs in the projections--WALL-E, Cygnus, Death Star et al, (basically all Disney-owned space ships), plus any other non-Disney craft they can license (Enterprise, anyone?).

It was a complex situation before COVID, and well now... Think it is best just to say it will "open when it opens" at this point. :)

this vaguery takes me back to listening to old radio shows, which were ancient at the time, on cassette.
