EPCOT, FL — In the midst of Epcot’s many issues — closings, construction, apartment complexes — comes a new hiccup: government meddling. Yes, now even the new Space 220 restaurant is in jeopardy after a U.S. Representative questioned its safety.

Congresswomanperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Neptune) recently sent a letter to the Walt Disney Company demanding to know more about the orbit of the upcoming Space 220 restaurant. Her letter raises concerns that it may interfere with communications satellites, and asks how it may impact her ability to stream Netflix, get weather updates on her smart phone, and play Candy Crush.

It’s funny because you know it could happen

Ocasio-Cortez also questioned the safety of guests who are taking flights aboard the X-2 Deep Space Shuttle, specifically how the Disney company would handle multiple launches per day, all the while keeping guests safe at the Space 220 restaurant. She also demanded answers as to how the launches would affect climate change.

This is the second time Ocasio-Cortez has been troubled by the running of Epcot. We reached out to Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation) for a response. We did reach her, but she couldn’t stop laughing. Neither could we.

Look for the Space 220 restaurant to open in February!
