Epcot's Space 220 restaurant is expected to open in February 2020, and a new piece of concept gives a first look at the space elevator that will take you to the orbiting space station.

The space elevator takes you 220 miles above the Earth's surface, where viewports will give you a real-time perspective as you travel high above the planet.

The adventure begins when a crew member invites guests to step inside the restaurant’s space elevator and prepare for liftoff. Guests will feel as if they are on a scenic excursion traveling 220 miles directly above Earth's surface, docking at the Centauri Space Station suspended just beyond the orbit of Mission: SPACE. Upon their arrival at the restaurant, guests will be guided to their seats past the grow zone, a spinning wall of produce that mimics Earth’s gravity and represents some of the fresh ingredients used by the culinary team.

“I look forward to welcoming guests to Space 220, an immersive culinary journey intended to celebrate the wonders of our solar system and transport guests 220 miles above Earth’s surface to experience the height of dining,” said Nick Valenti on behalf of Patina Restaurant Group and parent company, Delaware North.
