    Hi, guys!

    New around here, I was browsing looking for pictures of the Edison and here I am.

    I worked for Patina (the company that owns Edison) in the italian pavillion in Epcot a few years ago and I was recontacted to work at the Edison. I refused, as I have a stable life in Italy, but I know a few people that are coming back to Orlando to work at the Edison.

    Take this with a grain of salt, but the first departure group of waiters is scheduled for mid November, so it's safe to assume that the Edison will open beginning-mid December so that they're fully operational for peak season.

    The only thing that baffles me a bit is that mostly italians will work in the Edison, using a Cultural Representative Visa, which I honestly don't understand, as the Edison is clearly not an italian establishment.

    The same people might work for Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs, which is also owned by Patina.

    That opening time frame seems reasonable.

    One of the sections of the Edison is an Italian restaurant

    Very interesting indeed... how does the Italian theme fit into the story of the Edison, is that known??

    It doesn't really have to. The theme of Disney Springs is old buildings that have been re-purposed into new uses.

    Knowing this project, it probably looks the same as last time.

    Most of the work is inside now, so I am not sure if there will be much to see.

    Mostly just missed deadlines and broken promises.
