Welcome to the future of Epcot, where you can dine in space, with views of Earth from 220 miles away. We got more details on the Space 220 restaurant during the Parks Panel at D23, including the official name and logo, as well as a glimpse at some of the concept art. The new restaurant is sure to be an out-of-this-world dining experience at Epcot, with an opening of sometime this winter 2019. Since winter is just around the corner, let’s take a look at the progress we can see so far.
For reference, here’s a look at what the restaurant looked like back in August when the scaffolding first went down. The exterior was bare, but you could make out the general shape of the restaurant.
The building’s since gotten a layer of siding, giving it a more completed look, but given that we’re already halfway through October, there’s still lots of work left to be done if they aim to meet their Winter 2019 deadline.
The restaurant is located towards the back of Mission: Space, near Test Track.
We’ve been able to see inside the building on the left side until recently. Now that it’s enclosed, it’s a little harder to see how the progress is coming, but it’s a good sign to see the walls now! The walls are currently wrapped in fiberglass siding as construction continues.
It will be interesting to see what this looks like when it’s complete.
Honestly, it’s hard to decide if this wall is going to be themed or designed to blend in. After all, grey is considered somewhat futuristic, right? You can see another angle in our previous update.
Space 220 is still set for a Winter 2019 opening, so be sure to keep following for more updates! Are you excited for this new addition to Epcot?
