PHOTOS: EPCOT’s Space 220 is OPEN — Here’s What It’s Like

Ever wanted to EAT in SPACE? Well, all your dreams are about to come true (sort-of)!

Space 220

Space 220 might not actually send you to a real space station (shhhhh…don’t ruin the dream), but it’ll certainly feel that way. This space-themed restaurant, located near Mission: SPACE has been in the works for several years now as it was set to open quite a while ago but was ultimately delayed. But today we’re finally getting the chance to “leave” Earth, board the Centauri Space Station, and eat in space! So, just what is Space 220 like? We’re sharing everything you need to know right here!

Grand Opening

Space 220 is now officially open today (September 20th) in EPCOT! And, Disney marked the occasion during a special grand opening media event that we were invited to. It began with a welcome from Walt Disney World Ambassador, Ali Manion…

…and ended with a celebration fit for any Disney restaurant — fireworks and lots of smoke for blast-off.


If you’re hoping to be one of the first to dine here, reservations will look a bit different for the first week compared to other Disney World restaurants. Now through September 26th, Space 220 will be operating on a walk-up only basis.

Space 220 Grand Opening

Just keep in mind that you may experience a longer wait to be seated this first week, as there are quite a few guests hoping to dine here for the first time

If you want to visit Space 220 on September 27th or a date after that, however, reservations will be available. You can start making reservations TODAY for dates starting on September 27th.

Checking In

When you’re ready to eat at Space 220 (either you’re walking up or your reservation time arrives), you’ll check-in at the Space 220 Departure Lounge, which is located inside the area with Mission: SPACE in Future World.

Departure Lounge

Here you’ll be able to get your first look at the new Cast Member costumes for the restaurant…

…and you’ll even get to see what the Centauri Space Station (which is where you’ll be dining) looks like from space in the decorations around you.

Those are the Space Elevators!

We got to learn a little bit more about the decorations and what to expect once up in space from the Space 220 Show Producer!

After you’ve checked in, you’ll receive a boarding group pass for one of TWO space elevators.

Going Up to “Space”

Once it’s time for your reservation (or time for you to visit the restaurant after having walked in), you’ll board the Space Elevator!

Space Elevator

This special elevator will transport you what feels like 220 miles above the Earth. The space elevator is round in shape and guests can stand all around a central circular “viewpoint.” And, if you look down, the viewpoint on the ground shows Earth disappearing into the distance as you shoot into space.

Earth disappearing

There is also a viewpoint on the top where you’ll be able to see the Centauri Space Station as you approach it.

Approaching the station!

Here’s a full look at the ride!

In terms of capacity, Disney was loading a few parties per elevator, so expect to be traveling to space with more than just your friends and family.

Entering the Space Station

Once you’ve made the trip into space, you’ll step into the Centauri Space Station!

Welcome to the Centauri Space Station!

There, you’ll speak to a Cast Member in order to get seated at your table in the main dining space. Before you enter the main dining area, you’ll pass some futuristic looking lettuce growing areas and more.

Space lettuce!

Then, it’s time to enter the main dining area and see those incredible “windows” out into space!

Seriously, folks, photos don’t do this spot justice.

Views from Space 220

Keep a close eye on those windows as a Disney Imagineer shared with us that you might get to see some “longer-term residents” having fun out in space around the station.

During our leam we saw a couple of astronauts having a lightsaber battle…

…and another was holding an X-Wing from Star Wars!

There’s quite a lot of seating in the restaurant and it feels very large.

Space 220 Dining Room

Plus, there are even multiple levels, ensuring that all guests get a good view of the windows.

Space 220 Dining Room

Don’t forget there is also a Space 220 lounge if you aren’t interested in getting the full sit-down prix fixe menu experience! The lounge is in the same dining room as the full restaurant and we spoke with a Cast Member who shared that it is currently first-come, first-served. So, you’ll need to arrive early to be sure you get a spot.

  1. The lines will be just as long for these people to get into hospitals to treat the Covid spread by Disney. Coronavirus, by the way, comes free with park admission.

    1. Yes, they are.

      The 24-oz steak has a premium up-charge as does the lobster stuffed with crab.
      Similarly to the lunch, the sides and drinks all have their own additional charge as well.

      So if you have a large group with several opting for the premium entrees and extra sides, you’re going to be well over $100 p/person before you even add on drinks.
