Guests at Walt Disney World’s Epcot can already eat in countries as far-flung as Norway, Morocco, and Japan, but soon, they'll be able to eat in outer space.
Over the weekend, Disney held its bi-annual D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, and announced one of its most ambitious restaurant concepts to date. According to the Disney Parks Blog
, the new untitled restaurant will launch park guests into outer space. Concept art shows diners eating at illuminated tables as stars, planets, and a friendly astronaut float around them.
Further details about the restaurant, including a name and a menu, are not yet available. However, it is known the ambitious concept will fittingly sit next to Mission: Space in Future World.
“We know our guests love dining at Epcot
— and the restaurants really are out of this world. Now we’re about to create one that takes that literally,” Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald said in a statement.
The untitled restaurant is just one of many thrilling concepts Disney announced for Epcot at its Parks and Resorts Panel. The theme park giant also announced a Ratatouille
ride coming to the World Showcase and a Guardians of the Galaxy
-themed attraction coming to the Universe of Energy, which currently holds Ellen’s Energy Adventure.
The new additions to Epcot don’t yet have an opening date. However, they’re expected to be ready before Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary on October 1, 2021.
