Where would be the most reliable source with the quickest update? I’m thinking this page may be the place.
My idea of an opening date, (Strictly a guess) would be Feb 20 2020. The opening is clearly not for a few months yet and Disney seems to always play with numbers. Space 220 is supposed to simulate a restaurant that is 220 miles into space. Wouldn’t it be more memorable if it opened Feb. 20 (2/20)
Originally, there was a statement from Disney that it would be open in 2019. Now they are saying “winter”. We all know this to be a very general term that could extend well into 2020. So, it’s anybody’s guess at this point. The Chef leaving may or may not have much of an impact on the opening, as I have heard bits that the menu was basically going to be set anyway, so the chef role was less about coming up with the menu, and more about making it happen.
There are posted job opening positions for a Front of House Restaurant Manager and Hosts. This is a sign that they are getting closer. Restaurants typically wait until close to opening to being hiring and training the front of house staff.
I think those jobs are actually posted on patina group site. But nonetheless, YAY!! looking forward to this new restaurant. (But also lamenting the fact that they aren’t opening any cool new restaurants in HS where they are sorely needed IMO!)
You are correct. I used “loose” language in my writing. It is Patina that are running & hiring. I know it’s Patina as you can see I got the info off their site. I used WDW because I was being lazy and not wanting to have explain the restaurant ownership partnership.
Ps some bloggers seem to prefer negative terms to draw clicks… it’s not “delayed” with a wording change from winter to February - it’s just more specific - Winter 2019 is Sunday, December 22, 2019 to Friday, March 20, 2020
