PHOTOS: Lights Installed and Landscape Prepped for Landing at Space 220 in EPCOT

Space 220 has yet to open after numerous delays from prior to the COVID-19 shutdown, only worsened by the pandemic. As of March, the restaurant was due to open in April, then the shutdown happened. With the park reopened, construction continues, and now the exterior of the building is getting some attention.

We saw a new paint scheme applied to the exterior back in February. And now the ground around what will be the entrance of the restaurant near Mission: SPACE has been cleared to make way for landscaping and lighting.

The sleek, astro-inspired color scheme and flourishes are reminiscent of 1960’s space art. And the lighting fixtures outside the entrance seem to fit the aesthetic well.
