The opening of the Space 220 restaurant at Epcot appears to have been delayed. Recent job postings for Space 220 indicate that the planned opening is now set for February 2020 as opposed to the original window of Winter 2019.
Delaware North, the parent company of the Patina Restaurant Group that will operate Space 220, posted several jobs for the out-of-this-world dining experience. As you can see in the posting below for Culinary Team Members, the planned opening window of February 2020 is specifically mentioned.
Disney hasn’t officially announced an opening date for Space 220 at this time, but it appears guests at Epcot will have to wait until the new year to dine in space. The delay isn’t a complete surprise as the restaurant was recently searching for a new Executive Chef after the previous Executive Chef left to pursue a different opportunity.
Space 220 promises a unique experience for guests as they appear to dine 220 miles above the ground. They’ll begin their journey by boarding an “elevator” into space where they’ll find their table near windows that offer views out into space. While eating, they’ll see a real-time perspective of space as they travel around the planet.
Specific details around Space 220’s menu haven’t been released at this time. However, Disney has previously stated that the menu will offer cuisine and wines from all around the world as well as a large variety of beer.
