Disney has officially revealed that the new space-themed restaurant coming to Epcot at Walt Disney World will be launching operations and opening for business later this year!
You heard it here, the unnamed restaurant coming to Epcot’s Future World will be opening later this year adjacent to the Mission: SPACE attraction. The restaurant will operate in the style of a table-service experience and reportedly, no restaurant on earth will compare to this outer space eatery!
According to Disney, Patina Restaurant Group will operate the new restaurant, which they’ve developed a menu for, which features internationally-inspired cuisine, more than 1,000 bottles of the world’s finest wines and a wide selection of craft beer!
The restaurant was first announced almost two years ago at D23 Expo 2017, with a slew of other new attractions coming to the Disney Parks around the world. At the time of its original announcement, Disney stated that this new restaurant would provide guests with an “amazing dining experience among the stars.”
“We know our guests love dining at Epcot – and the restaurants really are out of this world,” Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald said at D23 Expo 2017. “Now we’re about to create one that takes that literally.”
After the restaurant’s official announcement at D23 Expo 2017, not much news had come of the restaurant. Although, for guests to the Disney Parks, they might have spotted the construction of the restaurant’s building taking place next to Mission: SPACE.

Currently, the restaurant is still very much under construction. However, it’ll be exciting to see Disney expedite the project to have it done sometime later this year!
Patina Group operates several other restaurants around Walt Disney World, including Tutto Italia and Via Napoli at Epcot and Morimoto Asia and Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante at Disney Springs.
