The new Space restaurant that’s coming to Epcot is really starting to take shape. Steel framing has been installed and roof work has been seen for the new dining experience that will sit between the Test Track and Mission: SPACE attractions.
New aerials from @bioreconstruct show the latest progress on the building.

The large curved portion of the restaurant will feature projections that will make it appear as if guests are looking out through the windows into space. It’s believed that guests will be “transported” upon arriving for their meal to simulate the journey up into space, and then will have incredible views while they eat.
To date, the restaurant’s name hasn’t been officially announced. It has been referred to as “Space 220” in various job postings and other documents, but it’s unclear whether that’s a code name or the expected official name.
The new Space restaurant was rumored to have a 2019 opening, though Disney hasn’t announced an official date at this time.
