Could Space 220 at EPCOT Finally Be Opening Soon?


Disney has been dangling the carrot of their upcoming Space 220 restaurant at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT park for a couple of years now.  Originally it was to open late 2019 and then that got pushed back to spring 2020, and then the pandemic hit.

Now it’s listed as “Coming Soon” but according to a couple of Disney blogs, there have recently been job listings on Indeed for a few positions at the restaurant.  I would link those, but they seemed to have disappeared when I search for them.  Or maybe I’m missing them somehow?

According to Chip and Co. and WDWNT, there were listings for the following positions:

  • Host
  • Restaurant Cashier
  • Busser
  • Server
  • Cook
  • Bartender
  • Food Runner

Hopefully, if true, it’s a good sign that we can expect an opening announcement soon!

For those unfamiliar with the restaurant, the Space 220 Restaurant is a new eatery coming to EPCOT. It’s located up against Mission Space, right next to Test Track.

The idea is that you are taken 220 miles up in space to eat at this restaurant overlooking Earth. It feels like a proto- Star Cruiser hotel concept to me, but more people will likely be able to afford this option.

Here’s the official write-up:

Embark on the ultimate culinary exploration from this new expansion of the Mission: SPACE pavilion.

Step inside Space 220—a celestial panorama of a space station—for a delicious meal! As you dine, peer out and enjoy amazing daytime and nighttime views of Earth from 220 miles up.

I would think Walt Disney World would want this open by October 1, 2021 as they are launching the 50th Anniversary celebration for the resort and opening Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in EPCOT.
