As we continue to keep an eye on various construction projects from around Disney World, we have a new look at the Space 220 restaurant at EPCOT.
Recently, Disney removed some construction walls on the side nearest Test Track. With heavy foliage now installed, this area looks to be completed.
Here’s a look back at the area before the walls were removed.
A closer look shows some of the futuristic lighting that we previously took a look at.
Out in front of the attraction, construction walls remain up where we believe the entrance to the restaurant will be.
A peek beyond the construction walls reveals that the Space 220 sign has been installed!
Here’s a higher contrast version of the photo that shows a bit more of the Space 220 wording behind the tarp.
It looks like the logo might be the same as what we’ve previously seen revealed.
The style of the sign follows the same style we can find for the Mission: SPACE attraction nearby.
Space 220, as you might remember, is slated to be an out-of-this-world dining experience next to Mission: SPACE. The general concept of the restaurant is that guests take a space elevator up to the International Space Station as guests experience “The Height of Dining”.
There have been a couple of pieces of concept art put out for the Space 220 Restaurant. The first, and perhaps most popular, is of the dining space. This piece of concept art shows a couple of interesting things, including tiered dining (like Coral Reef), and an out-of-this-world window into space. This window will be comprised of screens, or perhaps projections, that will simulate the vastness of space as guests orbit above the Earth. The idea of this restaurant plays nicely with the very close neighbor in Mission: SPACE.
Building a bit on the idea of a space elevator, we can see the Space 220 Restaurant and space elevator included in the Epcot overhaul concept art. Not only does the “wire” seem to be reaching towards the sky, we can make out what looks like the elevator chamber traveling up to the International Space Station.
Disney has not announced an opening date for Space 220 at EPCOT.
