Author Note: It appears that The Edison has removed their tweet with the information of an opening date of January 1, 2018. Stay tuned to the blog as we find out more information on if that is indeed the correct date that was inadvertently tweeted or if the date was accidental. I’ll make sure to have the information for you as soon as I find out. As of right now, the date that they are still stating on their website is fall 2017. 

We’ve been waiting forever for news about The Edison, a new restaurant for Disney Springs. The restaurant venue was supposed to open months ago, but setbacks apparently kept occurring and the official opening date news kept being pushed back. That is until today.

According to a tweet from The Edison themselves reminding people about Daylight Saving Time, there was a little message included that mentioned their official opening day, which is going to be January 1, 2018.
