The Patina Group has posted a new job listing in their International Services that may have revealed the name of the space-themed restaurant coming to Epcot. The listing offers opportunities of “launching you into space in 2019.”
Additionally, the upcoming dining establishment is being referred to as their “new Space 220 themed restaurant in Epcot.” Similar to the real International Space Station, European candidates will play a role in assisting guests to feel as though they are actually in space. They will represent their own countries along with their culinary traditions, touristic places, languages, and dialects.
The new Space 220 restaurant which is located next to the attraction Mission [Space] to Mars, will offer simulated views into space with diners sitting in a spaceship themed dining room. The new restaurant will be located between Mission Space and Test Track at EPCOT. The dining room will contain more than 350 seats. Customers will access to the dining room thanks to two fully functioning elevators with large digital screens, similar to those used by tourists to access the viewing platforms at One World Trade Center and the Burj Khalifa. The Space Restaurant is using these screens on the elevator to simulate the trip to the space station. After exiting the elevators, customers will enter into the newly constructed restaurant that will be connected to the rear of the existing lounge. After walking through a small hallway, guests will enter into the main dining room that will have a 250-foot-long digital screen that flanks the back of the curbed room.
