Patina Restaurant Group, in partnership with non-profit Give Kids The World, has helped raise $51,930 to support the wish trips of seriously ill children and their deserving families. These funds will be used to aid in the fulfillment of over 8,000 wishes in 2020.

In advance of the opening of Space 220 Restaurant, the highly anticipated new signature table-service location in Epcot at Walt Disney WorldResort, supporters of Give Kids The World were invited to bid on a prize package provided by Patina Restaurant Group that included dinner for two at the new restaurant.

Space 220 Restaurant is an immersive culinary experience that promises a journey like no other as guests are launched into the height of dining, a simulated 220 miles above Earth’s surface. Dinner will be served inside the Centauri Space Station, suspended in orbit directly above Mission: SPACE at Epcot. With stunning views and fantastic food, the prize winners will be privy to an evening that is truly out of this world. The dining portion of the package will be available for redemption following the restaurant’s opening.

“Patina Restaurant Group is honored to support Give Kids The World in their mission to create magical moments for wish families. The incredible work that they do is near and dear to our hearts, making them our local charity of choice here in Orlando. We look forward to welcoming the prize winners that helped make this all possible to our Space 220 Restaurant,” said Marketing Director, Kyle Collins, on behalf of Patina Restaurant Group and parent company, Delaware North.

By making a donation to Give Kids The World, supporters provided the means to help fulfill life-changing wish trips for seriously ill children and their families battling the unthinkable. These cost-free vacations are complete with accommodations, donated theme park tickets, meals, and more. The goal is to create an experience that inspires a renewed sense of hope and happiness that lasts long after each family returns home.

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?
