First Look at Epcot's Space 220 Menu

September 14, 2021, 4:34 PM · Epcot's new Space 220 will be open to walk-in diners starting September 20. On the same day, the new Walt Disney World restaurant will begin taking reservations for dining times starting September 27.

Operated by Patina Group - the same restauranteur that runs Epcot's Italy pavilion locations - Space 220 is themed to an orbiting space station, 220 miles above the Earth. A space elevator take you up to the dining room, where you watch the Earth through the giant (animated) windows. Space 220 menu is prix fixe, with two courses - a "Lift-Off" appetizer and "Star Course" main dish - at lunch and three courses - adding a "Supernova Sweet" dessert - at dinner.

Disney has not published the prices yet, but it has revealed what menu items will be served when Space 220 opens next week. And you might have guessed, no one at Disney or Patina resisted the opportunity for "pun-ny" names.

Dinner is meat-only? Not very future.

September 14, 2021 at 9:33 PM

Woah.

I guess it's more expensive if the experience is great... but that's only if the experience is great. Seems more like a one-and-done kind of situation tho

Looks like the only things that are "out of this world" on the menu are the goofy names. Not a very inventive menu for a restaurant that's been in development for over 4 years. It's like they came up with this on the back of a napkin last week because they realized they were opening for real next week. Hopefully the quality and experience will deliver, because this menu is far from inspiring.

Kids lunch = $29! I’m sure drinks are at least $15 and the food pre-cooked and probably frozen.

Another exceptional WDW menu. Great selection! And no doubt the restaurant's atmosphere will justify the prices and mitigate the sticker shock.

September 15, 2021 at 8:58 AM

Maybe the food will be really good, especially if it's run by the same company that manages the Italy restaurants. For those prices, though, I'd have thought they'd also throw in a character walk-thru with WALL*E and EVE or something else. I'll probably pass, unless my kids really, really want to go. Too many good options in EPCOT already.

"Another exceptional WDW menu. Great selection!"

Yeah, if it were 1998, when the inspiration for this restaurant (Mars 2121) opened...No vegetarian or vegan dinner options, and a list of entrée selections that are as inventive as you would find at a country club. McDonald's has a more progressive/futuristic menu than this.

I'm not surprised by the prices as they're in the same ballpark as CRT and other in-park signature restaurants (Tiffins and Brown Derby). Given the experience of the "space elevator" and interior ambiance, it has always sounded like this restaurant was going for a futuristic version of MK's signature restaurant. However, save for the silly names the menu doesn't really reflect the theme or take the step beyond other in-park signature eateries as one would expect. Obviously, the menu cannot go too far to the point where it infringes on what you would find in Galaxy's Edge (or the Halcyon), but it should still be more inventive than a run of the mill steakhouse.

RM: "No vegetarian or vegan dinner options,"

Me: You assume that what was released was the entire menu.

September 15, 2021 at 3:05 PM

Colonel, I would not want to live in a future that was vegan only.

I had considered this a must-do on my next trip, but as more information came out (fixed price menu, type of food, etc.) I think I am going to have to pass.

@RM Also the Skyliner has been comfortable all summer without AC.

As someone who thinks 12 bucks for a burger at my local pub is a bit much, I admit these prices are a tad jarring. Still, I get paying more for theme park meals and it sounds like a fun place to dine.

September 15, 2021 at 4:09 PM

I'm sorry - but am I the only one who thinks naming a beverage "The Big Tang" a hilarious and extremely BAD idea?

September 15, 2021 at 8:22 PM

Yes Rob!!! The reference is clear. I AM guessing the marketing guys for this gig are very young.

Me, posting this story, then walking away from the comments:

Sometimes I don't bother with the sunglasses.

September 16, 2021 at 5:12 PM

SOOOOOOOOOO FUNNY, Robert!
Classic!

September 16, 2021 at 7:11 PM

@TwoBits Then you understand why I'm balking at a dinner menu with exclusively meat-based entrees.

September 17, 2021 at 10:14 AM

Just to go on the record TH, I applauded the Skyliner after our experience on it during our last WDW visit in January 2020, especially since we were staying at Pop Century (though it was frustrating that it wasn't running early enough to get guests to DHS in time to secure RotR Boarding Groups - you had to take a bus if you wanted to be at the park before rope drop).
