Space 220 is going to be a table service restaurant that will be located right next door to Mission: SPACE. It is expected to be one of the most immersive dining experiences. To “get” to the restaurant, Guests will be able to board space elevators that will “transport” you, 220 miles above the earth to the 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. (No actual space travel will happen.)
Once you arrive in “space” you’ll be able dine with panoramic views of Earth in this restaurant themed around a space station. Guests will be able to peer out of viewports found inside the restaurant which will give you a real-time perspective as you travel high above.
Space 220 will be a fine dining experience. There will be a two-course prix fixe menu for lunch, and a three-course prix fixe menu for dinner. There will also be unique beverages ranging from fine wine to atmospheric cocktails and more.
There has been no announcement on when reservations will be available. Space 220 will be operated by the Patina Group.
