Along with all the other first looks we’ve been give by Disney from Josh D’Amaro during the IAAPA Virtual Conference, we’ve also gotten a look inside of the upcoming Space 220 restaurant.
This new restaurant is located near Mission Space in EPCOT. It has been delayed more than once and now it looks like it will finally get to open soon.
It’s called Space 220 because you are supposed to be 220 miles above the Earth. The windows are actually screens that project the look of space outside while you eat. I’m sure Disney being Disney, they will hide a bunch of Easter Eggs and hidden Mickeys in the footage as well.
Here’s the write-up from the Walt Disney World Site:
“A Stellar Adventure
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.
Going Up and Dining Out
To begin your journey, board a special space elevator that will ascend to the stars! Along the way, viewports will give you an aerial view of Epcot as you travel high above the planet.
Upon your arrival, you will dine from a menu featuring modern American cuisine, more than 1,000 bottles of the world’s finest wines and a wide selection of craft beer.”
There hasn’t been an opening date announced yet, but we should be getting one soon. It was supposed to open last year and then again this past spring, so they should be close to completion on it.
