We’re only days away from the opening of EPCOT’s Space 220 Restaurant in the Mission: SPACE attraction pavilion, and the reveals keep getting better and better!
In addition to learning that passengers can begin boarding on September 20, we have now gotten a sneak peek at the concept design artwork for the elevator that will take Guests from ground level at EPCOT to a destination of 220 miles above the earth’s surface.
Disney’s website has teased Guests with the mention of a “space elevator” as a means of transportation to the new restaurant’s location, but it wasn’t until today that we got our first look at the elevator.
To begin your journey, board a special space elevator that will ascend to the stars! Along the way, viewports will give you an aerial view of EPCOT as you travel high above the planet.
Once Guests reach the restaurant, they will disembark the elevator, and be taken to their seats. We’re told that Guests will walk by an area in the restaurant called the “Grow Zone” which looks like a wall of produce that spins–reminiscent of the earth’s orbit.
Guests will then enjoy an out-of-this-world menu that includes modern American cuisine, a wide selection of craft beers, and stellar cocktails.
Instead of having dinner under the stars, Guests can have dinner among the stars!
Disney’s description of the all-new Space 220 restaurant promises a truly unique and themed dining experience unlike any the parks have offered yet:
“Embark on the ultimate culinary exploration from this new expansion of the Mission: SPACE pavilion. Step inside Space 220—a celestial panorama of a space station—for a delicious meal! As you dine, peer out and enjoy amazing daytime and nighttime views of Earth from 220 miles up.”
Space 220 opens on September 20. Find the new Space 220 restaurant at World Discovery at the Mission: SPACE pavilion.
