Just minutes ago, we unveiled exciting plans to create a new restaurant at Epcot that’ll offer amazing meals with spectacular views high above Earth – from space!

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.

There will be much more to share about this restaurant in the future but we wanted you to be among the first to know what’s being planned. Keep checking back for more details.


  • Im really excited for this!! I have high hopes that the food will be unlike what we’ve seen before at disney!!

  • I agree, I do hope that there is different food other than burgers, nuggets, salads, etc…not just a quick service. But if it is, please make the food different.

  • when should this restaurant open?

  • Good place for good people.
    Allow me to join.

  • Will they serve tang?

  • I am excited about this restaurant! I hope the chefs will be creative and bring entrées that we have never seen before!

  • This is likely a new building right next to and a little behind the Space Pavilion on the side of Test Track. It won’t be in the Life or Odyssey pavilions.

  • Looking forward to this!! Disney is the BEST – Tasha

  • REALLY looking forward to this. Love that it seems to be more a reflection of the core pavilion idea rather than more new IP. Great work, Imagineering!

  • Will it go into The Odyssey restaurant space??? A great way to revive that prime location!

  • I can’t wait to try this. In addition to the food, the experience of Disney’s restaurants are some of the best parts of a Disney vacation. My kids will flip for this.

  • Will this be going into the wonders of life pavilion? The rounded shape would mirror the rounded shape in the concept picture. It would be considered adjacent to mission space.

  • This is too cool. Eating out in space! And I thought Skipper’s Canteen was about the coolest thing ever (yeah, I’m a big fan of the old Adventurer’s Club). Other some of the plans for Epcot, I’m really excited about the new stuff.
