Space 220 Restaurant quickly became one of the most popular places for lunch or dinner at Walt Disney World. It is unlike any other dining experience! You’ll board an elevator and head “220 miles” up, into outer space. Of course you don’t go nearly that high, but it is easy to suspend disbelief.
The elevator ride is part of the fun. You can look down and see Earth getting smaller and smaller, or look up and see the station growing larger. Once inside the restaurant, you will feel like you are in space.
Space 220 Restaurant almost immediately became the hardest to get reservation at EPCOT and at all Walt Disney World. Many Guests found a way around that. Instead of trying to snag a dining reservation, they would just head to the walk up Space 220 Lounge.
It looks like those days are over, because Space 220 Lounge is now accepting advance reservations as well. Those reservations are just as hard to get as the reservations for the full restaurant.
If you dine at Space 220 Restaurant, you will order off the prix fixe menu. For lunch you will receive an appetizer and an entree, while dinner adds a dessert (and a higher price tag).
There is a separate menu for the Space 220 Lounge. In the past, you could also order the prix fixe menu if you wanted, but that is not mentioned on the Walt Disney World website.
The Space 220 Lounge menu features specialty cocktails with or without alcohol. They have far out names such as Planetary Punch and The Big Tang.
For food the Space 220 Lounge menu features Flight Bites. The creative names continue, with Astro Deviled Eggs, Blue Moon Cauliflower, and Starry Calamari.
Space 220 Restaurant has become one of our favorite restaurants at EPCOT. The food is heavenly, and the theme is out of this world. If Space 220 Restaurant or Lounge are on your must-do list, start trying for a reservation as soon as you are able.
