The restaurant celebrated its inaugural mission today with a dedication ceremony featuring executives from Patina Restaurant Group, Delaware North (Patina’s parent company), Disney, and — of course — Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Following a ribbon-cutting, media guests were given a tour of the restaurant and the chance to sample signature menu items.
“At Space 220, we hope to take guests on a culinary journey with our signature prix fixe menu that will let them customize the perfect meals for their crew and expedite their trip to space and back, allowing them ample time to enjoy all that Epcot has to offer,” said Kyle Collins, marketing director for Patina Restaurant Group.
“With Space 220, we now have a fine dining experience in our World Discovery neighborhood of the park — and a chance for our Epcot guests to experience a restaurant that is truly out of this world!” added Tom Fitzgerald, creative portfolio executive for Walt Disney Imagineering.
When visiting Space 220, guests will feel as though they have been transported 220 miles above the Earth to the Centauri Space Station, seeing Epcot drop away under their feet and look up to see the station rapidly approaching. The second phase of the experience begins once they step off the elevator, where guests will walk past a Grow Zone of spinning produce and head to their table with a Space 220 crew member. Once seated, guests can enjoy panoramic views of Earth alongside their out-of-this-world dining experience.
The restaurant will offer lunch and dinner starting at 11:30 a.m., with a two-course prix fixe menu for lunch and a three-course prix fixe menu for dinner available. From today, Sept. 20, until Sept. 26, the restaurant will only be accepting walk-ins. Reservations will be available starting Sept. 27 and can be booked now.
Lunch and dinner for adults is priced at $55 and $79, respectively. Children’s lunch and dinner is priced at $29. You can check out the full menu for both here.
As a special treat, the purchase of any “Zero Proof” (non-alcoholic) cocktail or children’s meal, guests will receive a pack of Space 220 collectible trading cards — which were designed exclusively for and only available at the restaurant. The limited-edition packs of cards feature custom illustrations and trivia about space exploration, food in space, and the innovations of Space 220.
