A restaurant in orbit? The opening date of Disney Space 220 is known
The opening of the long-announced “extraterrestrial restaurant” Space 220 was planned for 2019, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was decided to put it into operation only now. Disney has finally announced exactly when it will be possible to visit the new attraction of the Epcot theme park. Disney has apparently come to the conclusion that a regular restaurant is not enough, so a place simulating a space station was created at Disneyland in Bay Lake, Florida.
Space 220 will officially open in mid-September 2021, and thanks to large screens that display a view similar to that experienced by ISS astronauts on a daily basis, guests are expected to experience “both delicious food and spectacular views.” Impressions will begin when those who wish to register in the departure hall Space 220. From there, they will board one of two space elevators that will take them to an altitude simulating 220 miles (about 350 km – ed.) above the Earth, to the Centauri Space Station.
This is written by Zach Riddley, one of the Disney directors responsible for promoting Space 220. He also emphasizes that interesting views go hand in hand with dishes and dishes from around the world that will be prepared by chefs from the Patina Restaurant Group. In addition to two-or three-course dinners, customers will also be offered more than 1000 different varieties of wine and craft beer. Unfortunately, Riddle didn’t disclose the ticket prices, but they definitely won’t be cheap. Space 220 will open shortly before the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort, of which Epcot is a part. The main event will take place on October 1-2.
