PHOTOS - Inside the Space 220 restaurant coming soon to EPCOT

Nov 16, 2020 in "Space 220 Restaurant"

This morning, Josh D’Amaro, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, shared a brief look inside the upcoming Space 220 restaurant as part of a presentation for  IAAPA Expo: Virtual Education Conference,  

In the image we see some of the two tier dining room seating, along with a look out of the viewports back towards Earth - courtesy of a massive 250ft projection screen that will wrap around the restaurant.

The restaurant has seen numerous construction delays prior to COVID, and then more related to construction limitations during COVID-19 mitigation measures. Disney, or the restaurants operator Patina Restaurant Group, has not yet released an update timeline for Space 220.

Should be open by summer.

Cars there. Must be ready to open! Kidding, but I hope it at least means they're actively inside prepping/finishing/planning menus. I feel like this is vaporware (which I realize isn't fair to say given everything going on).

Maybe we guess on a 2/20 date again?

I'm hearing March

Any updates on this project? Possible timeline to completion? Anyone heard anything?

I think the timing is down to Patina. They must be taking big hits elsewhere, maybe they can’t afford to hire a chef and staff to run it at the moment.

Well, if its not a mounting plate they sure have decided to accommodate the "pooh sized" guests haven't they.

Perhaps there are some unique considerations that prevent Space 220 from operating with Covid distancing and capacity restrictions in play.

Yes. It does, but it would be a nice “look at this awesome new restaurant we’re opening for the 50th” situation for them.

On the latest Jim and Len show, Jim said a fall 2021 opening... seems late, no?

That was the plan. Pray COVID doesn't alter the plans.

I seem to remember saying there would be a "preshow" for this restaurant with a space elevator taking you to the restaurant. I assume these will be mechanically identical to the star wars cruiser and similar in vein (but reverse idea) from the old hydrolators?
