Epcot’s New Space 220 Restaurant Opening Pushed Back Again, This Time Until April


According to WDWInfo, the Space 220 restaurant has been delayed yet again, this time moving from March 30th until April 6th.

Here’s the reason they gave:

“The delay, according to our well-placed sources, is due to a large pane of glass getting broken during construction and needing to be specially ordered (taking 8 weeks). Once the new glass arrives, the roof may need to be removed to install it.”

Ouch that’s expensive. But if that is how it’s constructed what happens if the window is accidentally broken again, after it’s opened? Does the roof possibly need removed every time the glass windows have an issue or the screens need replaced?

I’m hoping that they are taking this time to maybe re-work the design a bit to accommodate any future repairs.

At this time no menu or advanced dining options are available. I keep periodically checking to see if it had gone live, and now I know why.

For those that don’t know the Space 220 Restaurant will shuttle guests “220 miles up into space” for a special galactic dining experience. Screens will be placed around the restaurant as “windows” for guests to look out into space. I liken it to The Coral Reef, but in space.
