We can’t wait to experience all this restaurant will have to offer, but for now, Disney is staying quiet on what kind of cuisine we can expect from this eatery and just exactly when it will open!

We got to see quite a bit of progress on this attraction during a monorail ride on our last visit to EPCOT…
