Space 220 Will Finally Open in Mid-September at EPCOT

It looks like we will finally get the Space 220 restaurant, after several delays, “mid-September” in EPCOT.

This new restaurant is located next to Mission: SPACE (between it and Test Track.)  It’s called Space 220 because it’s meant to be an experience that takes guests 220 miles above the Earth to a space station where the restaurant is supposed to be.

The Space 220 restaurant is located adjacent to the Mission: SPACE attraction, and takes fine dining to a whole new level.  Your immersive experience begins as you check in to the Space 220 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.

Like what they are doing with the Galactic Star Cruiser, the restaurant has screens instead of actual windows so it will appear that you are above the Earth.

Once you’ve docked, you’ll head through the Centauri Space Station-themed dining area. Inside the dining area, you’ll 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.”

We finally have an executive chef for the restaurant and that is Marc Kusche.

Space 220  will offer a menu with a two-course prix fixe option for lunch, and a three-course prix fixe menu for dinner.  It’s going to be expensive as they are calling it “upscale, contemporary.”

There will also be  “unique beverage” offerings that include fine wine, “atmospheric cocktails” and more.
