Last night, some friends and I ate at the "Sci-Fi Theater Restaurant" in Disney's Hollywood Studios themepark in Orlando. It's a good reminder to me of how evocative and inspiring well-designed spaces can be.
The Sci-fi Theater is actually a pretty hard place to get a reservation at, in my experience. I've been visiting Disneyworld for several days, and each day that I tried to find a reservation online or in-person, they were all snapped up already that day. So I had to book for a day in advance, and the only available time was a 5:30pm dinner seating, which is pretty early for us.
I was tempted to bail on the whole thing, but I'm really glad we stuck it out. Of all the incredible spaces I've visited this week, the Sci-fi Theater Restaurant is one that I think I'll remember year's from now.
