Plans were first unveiled back at the D23 Expo in 2017 for a new type of restaurant experience, and just a few weeks ago at this past D23 Expo, it was announced that it’s on track to open later this year. This new table-service venue has been officially named SPACE 220 and is adjacent to the Mission: SPACE attraction in Epcot. When dining there, guests will be invited to travel into space for their amazing dining experiences amongst the stars. It will literally be out of this world and being billed with “great meals and an even greater view.”
The restaurant will be operated by the Patina Group, which already operates several world class restaurants around Walt Disney World and Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort. Here’s a few of our favorites we want to namedrop because they will absolutely change the way you experience food; Maria & Enzo’s, Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs, Via Napoli at Epcot and Catal at Downtown Disney in California. Did I mention Maria and Enzo’s? Best to say it once more since it’s one of the top 3 restaurants in Orlando and my personal favorite.
With Patina Group at the helm of this culinary space ship, expect only the best. The company prides itself on excelling with ingredients, experiences and hospitality which is why I always brag about their restaurants. It’s also why I expect that this restaurant will send you to the moon and back on a flavor filled journey.
Keep your eyes open for more announcements coming later this year.
Calling all extreme Disney fans! This year we will be celebrating all things Disney at the 2019 D23 expo - the ultimate fan event that honors the historic and future progressions that Disney has made over the years. If you’re new to the D23 scene, you’ll want to take note of some of the most anticipated events we have lined up for the expo.
If you were around for the 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration at Disneyland you’re sure to remember the fantastic and emotionally charged nighttime spectacle above Sleeping Beauty castle, Disneyland Forever! It’s the type of show that will make you cry in the most beautiful ways, and last night didn’t disappoint - or have less of an effect on me; I still cried my eyes out and proud to admit it.
This show quickly became a fan favorite and while it only had a limited run, it’s become a cherished memory to all who witnessed it. Lately it seems that the folks over at Disneyland have been taking a nostalgic approach to the past. Just last week the original version of “Soarin’ Over California” returned for a limited time, only being available to guests during the month of June. Now we’re being treated to this nighttime blast from the past! Keep spoiling us Disneyland, we’re totally ok with it.
With the popularity of this show, there are multiple viewing areas for throughout the park, including Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle, Rivers of America and near “it’s a small world.” Each spot lends a different feel to the show, and if you’re around long enough, should be experienced from each location. As a warning, bring tissues. The story ‘Disneyland Forever’ tells is breathtakingly beautiful and celebrates the unimaginable imagination of Walt Disney.
The show shouldn’t be missed and if you ever had doubts that magic exists in the world, plan a visit to Disneyland and watch this with your own eyes. You won’t be disappointed. There’s no official estimated end date for this run, with Disney offering no timeline.
