Changes are coming to Epcot! Along with a new Mary Poppins attraction in the Great Britain pavilion, a Moana-themed water maze, a Guardians of the Galaxy ride and so much more, Walt Disney World will unveil an out of this world eatery in 2020!
Space 220 gives guests the chance to dine among the stars. The all-new restaurant is an extension of the park’s Mission: SPACE pavilion and set to open this winter.
So what can you expect from this other worldy foodie attraction? To start with, you won’t enter the eatery simply by walking through the front door. Instead, guests will magically travel 220 miles above the planet (not IRL, of course) to dock with the Centauri Space Station.
The awesomely immersive experience includes panoramic outer space views and an all-too-real feeling of flying high above the Earth. Even though you’ll feel like you’re floating in space, the food isn’t exactly alien. According to the Walt Disney World website, the menu will feature modern American cuisine for the fam and more than 1,000 bottles of wines and craft beer for grown-ups only.

How cool does this new restaurant in Epcot look? Due to open in February of 2020, Space 220 gives guests the fun and unique experience of dining amongst the stars on the Centauri Space station, orbiting, you guessed it 220 miles above the earth. . In order to get to your table though, you will first have to "blast off" from the earth in one of two exciting space elevators allowing you to get the truly immersive feeling of rocketing towards the stars. . I wonder if they have good elevator music like "Fly Me to the Moon" by Frank Sinatra? . My family is visiting Epcot the first week of March and I absolutely can't wait to check this new eatery out. .. 📸 ©Disney Space 220 Concept Art .. .. #Epcot #waltdisneyworld #disneyworld #space220 #disneytravel
Patina Restaurant Group’s (the company behind Space 220) Nick Valenti said in a press statement, “I look forward to welcoming guests to Space 220, an immersive culinary journey intended to celebrate the wonders of our solar system and transport guests 220 miles above Earth’s surface to experience the height of dining.”
As of now, there’s no word on specific menu items or an opening date.
