“LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Sept. 20, 2021) – Aspiring astronauts, gastronomes, and space enthusiasts can suit up and prepare for liftoff because Patina Restaurant Group’s highly anticipated Space 220 Restaurant in EPCOT® at Walt Disney World® Resort is now open. The first-of-its-kind restaurant concept promises to virtually lift guests to a new “height of dining.” Reservations are now available to book with seating beginning on September 27.

Celebrating its inaugural mission today, a dedication ceremony featured executives from Patina Restaurant Group, Delaware North (Patina Restaurant Group’s parent company), Disney, and very special guests Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Mickey and Minnie helped wish travelers a magical “flight” during their maiden voyage to Space 220. Following the ribbon-cutting, media guests were given a tour of the restaurant and the opportunity to sample signature menu items.

“At Space 220, we hope to take guests on a culinary journey with our signature prix fixe menu that will let them customize the perfect meals for their crew and expedite their trip to space and back, allowing them ample time to enjoy all that EPCOT has to offer,” said Patina Restaurant Group Marketing Director Kyle Collins.

“With Space 220, we now have a fine dining experience in our World Discovery neighborhood of the Park – and a chance for our EPCOT guests to experience a restaurant that is truly out of this world!” added Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Portfolio Executive Tom Fitzgerald.

When visiting one of the country’s most anticipated restaurants to open this year, guests will feel as if they are transported 220 miles above Earth to the Centauri Space Station – they will see EPCOT drop away under their feet and look up to see the rapidly approaching station. The scenic journey is fun for the whole family and phase one of Space 220’s immersive dining experience, providing guests with stellar views of Earth by day and night. Phase two begins once they step off the space elevator, walking past a Grow Zone of spinning produce representing the fresh ingredients on the menu, while they’re guided to their table by a Space 220 crew member. Once seated, all guests will have panoramic views of Earth as the backdrop to an out-of-this- world dining experience.

A supernova of flavors awaits diners daily for lunch and dinner at Space 220 beginning at 11:30 a.m. With Executive Chef Marc Kusche at the helm, the restaurant serves upscale, contemporary fare, featuring a two- course prix fixe menu for lunch and a three-course prix fixe menu for dinner. Guests will enjoy a selection of lift-off appetizers, star course main entrees, and a choice of supernova sweets for dessert. Satellite sides will also be available a la carte, and visitors can expect unique beverages with a colorful lineup of atmospheric spirits, zero proof (non-alcoholic) cocktails, big dipper brews, and worldly wines. Some crew favorites include the following signature menu items:
