Very exciting news today Insiders and I’m so excited about this I can hardly contain it! An out-of-this-world dining experience at EPCOT is landing next month! The Space 220 restaurant at EPCOT is scheduled to begin service in mid-September and will be a part of the celebration of the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary.
Here is the official description of this new dining experience per the Disney Parks Blog:
This new dining experience is going to be so epic! The Space 220 restaurant will be located adjacent to the Mission: SPACE attraction. 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.
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.
Wow Insiders, this is going to be such an amazing experience and there’s nothing else like this in the world! Disney Imagineers are excited to have created this experience for Executive Chef Marc Kusche to showcase his culinary wonders. The Space 220 restaurant menu will feature stellar dishes and gourmet recipes, with a two-course prix fixe menu for lunch, and a three-course prix fixe menu for dinner. The Disney Parks Blog states that the upscale, contemporary fare will bring new meaning to “the height of dining,” and we can hardly wait! Fine wine, atmospheric cocktails, and more will also be offered. Although no official menu has been released yet, we expect the food will be “out of this world” fantastic!
Take a look at this Disney Parks Tiktok that gives a sneak peek into this new and extraordinary dining experience:
