After much anticipation we finally have an opening timeframe for Disney’s new space-themed restaurant, Space 220!
The Space 220 restaurant is located in EPCOT, adjacent to the Mission: SPACE attraction, and will feature fine dining in an immersive experience. According to Disney, you will bein in the Departure Lounge in Future World. From here, you’ll board one of two “Space Elevators” that will transport you in what seems like 220 miles above Earth to Centauri Space Station. As you begin your ascent, you’ll look down through a viewport to see EPCOT shrink away; looking up you’ll see the Space Station come into view.
Once you’ve docked, you’ll proceed through the Centauri Space Station-themed dining area. Inside the dining area, and experience a panoramic view of Earth below, and a variety of work and leisure activities taking place beyond the windows of the Space Station-themed restaurant.
As excited as we are about the awesome views, it is refreshing to hear that menu will feature an upscale, contemporary menu from Executive Chef Marc Kusche. The full menu has not been released but offerings will include a two-course prix fixe menu for lunch and a three-course prix fixe for dinner as well as fine wine and atmospheric cocktails.
Space 220 will open just in time for Disney’s October 1st 50th anniversary celebration, an 18-month event featuring shows and entertainment throughout all four parks.
