Today on our trip around EPCOT, we popped by the site of the future Space 220 restaurant to check on its progress. The restaurant was set to open in the winter of 2019. The opening date was pushed back to February 2020 after the Executive Chef stepped down in November.
Visible construction work began in early November and has moved along quickly. Most of the building has been painted a nice shade of “Go Away Green.” Other parts of the building have been left as concrete with a space design added.
On this trip to check on its progress, we saw that the exterior scaffolding has been removed. This bodes well for the restaurant’s opening timeline. We can only imagine the work going on inside!
When the restaurant opens, guests will be able to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner while viewing the stars and the Earth at a bird’s eye view from their tables as if they were 220 miles above the Earth. The experience is perfect for a space fanatic. We can’t wait until this restaurant finally opens so we can snack on the stellar food ourselves!
