Space 220 and What You Should Know
Disney’s newest “out of this world” experience is now open at Epcot where you can dine among the stars!
This morning, media was invited to the opening ceremony for Space 220. Disney World’s ambassador Ali Manion greeted everyone followed by speeches from the Vice President of Real Estate and Operating Participants, Vice President of Epcot, Group President of Delaware North and CEO of Delaware North.
What You Should Know
Currently this ultimate culinary adventure is not taking reservations. Space 220 will be available for walk-ins from September 20 to September 26 only. Please note that reservations will be available––and strongly recommended––starting September 27. Reservations can be booked starting September 20. You can see the long line that started to form at Epcot’s park opening this morning. As of this afternoon the line was 5-hours long!
Lunch prices are $35 to $59.99 per adult and dinner is over $60 per adult.
Every table with a white top is a lounge table; black tops are prix fixe. If you’re seated in the lounge you can still order from the prix fixe menu. “Dine on a menu featuring modern American cuisine, cocktails and a wide selection of craft beer. Enjoy crisp, fresh veggies served in our Space Greens or Blue Moon Cauliflower. Sink your teeth into delicious entrees like the Centauri Burger or the 8-oz. Filet Mignon. Plus, enjoy a sweet send-off when you order the Lemon Mousse or Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake for dessert.” – Disney’s website
However, you might want to grab a kid’s meal or a mocktail. Why? Space 220 has its own trading cards that have “custom illustrations” and “trivia facts about space exploration, food in space, and sky-high innovations at Space 220.”
The rocket ship souvenir cup comes with children’s drinks for kids age 9 and under.
You have to remember, yes, the prices are rather high for food but you’re also paying for the experience; the journey 220 miles up. Take a look at these photos and you will see how beautiful it is.
Keep your eyes open for you will see some interesting things out there in space like an X-Wing and some astronauts battling it out with light sabers.
As I was watching Lou Mongello’s live stream I was paying close attention to the area loop that was playing in the background. It sounds strangely familiar to the star tunnel at Space Mountain. The loop does not have much variety to it. I will do my best to get this added to the Jukebox as soon as possible.
Well that’s it for now. Will you be making reservations to dine 220 miles up?
