Thanks to our friend on twitter @bioreconstruct we have a new look at the delayed Space 220 restaurant for EPCOT.

The restaurant looks massive in size and once it opens will be a unique experience for guests visiting EPCOT. This photo shows us the non-guest facing parts of the restaurant building, but give us a great feel for the vast scale of whats to come in this immersive dining experience.

This new dining location with an ambitious theme has seen many delays. Initially set to open winter of 2020 the restaurant however when head chef Theo Schoenegger  stepped down unexpectedly weeks before the restaurant was supposed to open it put everything on pause. The Patina group, who run The Edison, Maria and Enzos, and many other dining locations around the Disney World property are also running Space 220. They have yet to name a replacement for Schoenegger.

The Space 220 name comes from the fact that you will be dining 220 miles above the earth! You will naturally need to take an elevator to get into the restaurant that will help guest become immersed in the theming before even taking a bite of their space themed food. Obviously with a little imagination and some seriously impressive imagineering guest will feel like they are truly dining in space. We covered every detail about the Space 220 restaurant here.
