ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A new restaurant at EPCOT that promises to take diners to new heights is now open.
Walt Disney World officially opened Space 220 on Monday. Executives from Patina Restaurant Group, Delaware North (Patina Restaurant Group’s parent company), Disney and, of course, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse were on hand for the guests’ maiden voyage.
The immersive dining experience “transports” guests 220 miles above Earth to the Centauri Space Station. They will see EPCOT drop away under their feet and look up to see the rapidly approaching station.

“With Space 220, we now have a fine dining experience in our World Discovery neighborhood of the Park – and a chance for our EPCOT guests to experience a restaurant that is truly out of this world!” Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Portfolio Executive Tom Fitzgerald said in a news release.
Guests will step off the space elevator and walk past a “grow zone” of spinning produce representing the fresh ingredients on the menu as they’re guided to their table by a Space 220 crew member.
At their table, guests will have panoramic views of Earth as the backdrop for an outta-this-world dining experience.
The menu includes a two-course lunch and three-course dinner, as well as several alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks. See the full menu here.
“At Space 220, we hope to take guests on a culinary journey with our signature prix fixe menu that will let them customize the perfect meals for their crew and expedite their trip to space and back, allowing them ample time to enjoy all that EPCOT has to offer,” Patina Restaurant Group Marketing Director Kyle Collins said in a news release.
