But, before the celebratory fun begins on October 1, we will get to see the Patina Group restaurant Space 220 finally open its space shuttle doors on September 20 at EPCOT. The location was originally meant to open last February. Still, it was delayed and then paused due to the pandemic, so it is obvious that Guests are on the edge of their seats waiting to try the new dining option.

Space 220 will let Guests feel like they are actually dining in space, creating an immersive dining experience like no other. Now, Guests can get more excited as a new website has been launched, which has also allowed future space travelers to see the concept art of the iconic elevator that will shuttle them into the solar system.

The elevator is meant to transport Guests 220 miles above the Earth and will be an integral aspect of the Guest experience and overall storyline of the location. Currently, the new website is quite barren in terms of information, as not all information has been released as of yet.

For now, it seems that the site will soon feature hours of operations as well as the locations menu once that information is open to the public. Space 220 is currently hiring, which they also highlight on the website with a link that will allow viewers to apply for an available position. At the moment, it seems that there is a pastry line cook position available and a line cook position that will also give a $1000.00 signing bonus!
