PHOTOS: Space 220 Restaurant Takes Shape as Construction Continues at EPCOT

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?

Any idea on when reservations are going to open? Or what the menu is going to look like?

It’s tough to get excited when there’s so little to see, progress has been so slow, and there’s been no word on the menu, pricing or reservation availability. I predict we won’t see it open until early 2020.

i was very excited when they first announced because I assumed it would be open by our trip in mid January that we have been planning for 1.5 yrs. Sadly, they are moving so sloooowwww on this project, and with the lack of info /date released by Disney, I’m losing all hope it will be open by then. 😭

It was announced in July 2017. It’ll be over 2.5 years by “this winter” which could mean all the way until March 21, 2020. I wonder if something went wrong?

Actually, it’s been said to open winter 2019 for a while. Considering 2019 is coming to a close, if it were to open in 2020, that would be later than announced.

I’m surprised they’re still sticking to a “Winter 2019” timeframe as an official opening time, because it doesn’t seem feasible at this point. I suspect it will go the way of the Remy/Ratatouille attraction and soon change to “Spring 2020.” Disney usually likes to offer people a chance to start making reservations for a new restaurant at least two months in advance of its opening, but since that hasn’t happened, it doesn’t bode well for it opening as soon as predicted. Maybe they’ll surprise me, though. I’d rather they take their time with it and get it right, rather than… Read more »
