    The location has been confirmed for new Space Restaurant in EPCOT



    Disney has officially confirmed that the new restaurant is going to be built in a new area between Mission: SPACE and Test Track. The restaurant will invite guests to feel immersed that their in actual space for a unique dining experience in the stars.
    This will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group, led by Nick Valenti, who operates several other restaurants around Walt Disney World, including Tutto Italia and Via Napoli at Epcot, Morimoto Asia and Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante at Disney Springs.

    Sheet piling begun earlier this week on the Ratatouille ride, which means that vertical construction is getting closer to starting:

    Permits filed for the new hotel close to Epcot entrance and changes to the land due to unannounced additions in the future.



    We are speculating that this will be used for cast parking and backstage support functions for the new hotel to be built at the entrance of Epcot, in the area designated Zone A which is to the east of “Area 1” on the map. Whether the hotel will straddle the monorail beams or be located just to the west, we still don’t know, but either way, it appears the bus stop and bus parking area will need to be relocated.
    Most of the current Guardians development is actually taking place in the northeast portion of Zone B, with some encroaching onto Zone C. Of particular note is the “Area 2” designated in Zone C. This is currently a wooded area but is planned to be cleared and leveled for development, according to the permit. It is likely this will be used for additional parking lots. Woodpecker Lane, which is an unpaved road that connects the eastern corner of the parking lot with the backstage areas, currently runs through Area 2, but as you can see, will be rerouted around the perimeter of the new parking lots.


    The permits provide a nice overview of the current land use in this area. Red is buildings, pink is impervious (paved) areas, light green is pervious (i.e. undeveloped) areas, and dark green is wetlands.
