Space 220 has finally opened next to Mission: SPACE in EPCOT. Join us as we hop aboard the Stellarvator and tour the restaurant 220 miles above Earth.
With no reservations available for the first week, a huge crowd formed outside the restaurant this morning.
Only walk-ins will be accepted through September 26. Reservations are now available from September 27 onward.
There was a brief opening ceremony.
The stage was then quickly dismantled before guests were allowed forwards.
The entrance to Space 220 is to the right of the Mission: SPACE entrance.
Guests were finally allowed to line up not long after the park officially opened at 11:00 AM.
There’s a counter around the corner for check-in.
After checking in, there is a courtyard and lobby to wait in before boarding the Stellarvator.
Here is where the space theming really kicks off.
The walls show how Space 220 will “elevate your dining.”
In-story, this is what Space 220 looks like.
Look out for standard signage with an astronaut twist throughout the restaurant.
Guests are giving boarding passes for the elevator.
There are two elevators.
Cast Members lead guests onto an elevator when it arrives.
Guests can watch their journey from Earth to the Centauri Space Station.
A “Living With the Land”-esque rotating garden can be seen aboard the space station.
The restrooms are themed as well.
The signage depicts the standard stick figures as astronauts.
Signs reassure guests that vacuum systems are in place to contain waste in the event that the artificial gravity fails.
We were seated and ready to dine. Look out for our full lunch review, coming soon.
The view out the windows onto Earth offers fun sights.
