Space 220 was officially inaugurated yesterday, and it was definitely worth the wait!
We took a full look at the new EPCOT restaurant and looked at whether it was really worth the price. However, EPCOT is a complete park with many other amazing features that are a must, including the expansive World Showcase. So, is EPPCOT’s experience of restoring and eating newer food worth skipping at World Showcase restaurants? Well, that’s what you need to know.
Why you want to skip Space 220’s World Showcase restaurants:
Space 220 is NOT JUST a restaurant, it’s a whole experience. Once you have entered the departure lounge to leave the space, the anticipation of keeping the boarding pass makes the time when you get on the elevator better.
The elevator is practically an attraction in itself, where guests can watch as they leave the earth and arrive at the Centauri space station. The trip to space fully immerses guests in the moment, as they must focus on the suspension of reality during their visit.
Space 220 is also especially unique in the Future World area, as it is EPCOT’s only space-themed restaurant. And, the restaurant is designed for guests of all ages, as space lovers can enjoy the atmosphere. Along with the view of the windows overlooking the space, you can even see references Star Wars, Mission: SPACE and other parts of the Disney verse.
When you visit Space 220, you can expect more than one prolonged gastronomic event. Guests are encouraged to enjoy their time in the restaurant, taking time to eat and enjoying the atmosphere. This means you can spend a few hours in space 220, compared to other World Showcase restaurants that try to get you in and out in a timely manner.
But if you don’t have time to spend hours in space 220, you can also go to the salon without reservations. The lounge offers a variety of quick bites and cocktails, as well as the ability to order the full menu.
The food even has some specialties that really suit the theme of the space, such as its cocktails made with edible glitter, Pop Rocks, cotton candy and more.
But while Space 220 is a blast, there are still many reasons why you don’t want to miss the global showcase.
Why not miss the World Showcase restaurants:
Since Space 220 is a new restaurant, the reservations do a lot hard to get (maybe even more so than in popular places like Be Our Guest or Cinderella’s Royal Table). During its initial reopening, Disney offered a full waiting list, but the waiting time was extended to 4 hours on the opening day. In the days that followed, Space 220 also used a virtual queue to accommodate the number of guests they wanted to visit.
However, the restaurant will change its reservation system from September 27. Therefore, it can be even more difficult to secure a table, as many people will want to visit space 22. And, as the restaurant is a long experience, fewer tables could be available throughout the day compared to other venues. dining room. Also, Space 220 is just one restaurant to consider compared to a dozen table service restaurants at the World Showcase.
The restaurants around the various pavilions of the World Showcase have much of the same food in space 220, if not in some cases better. You can find amazing steaks at Le Cellier at the Canada Pavilion, tasty pasta at Via Napoli at the Italy Pavilion, excellent Asian cuisine at Nine Dragons at the China Pavilion and beyond. In addition, World Showcase also has great fast service locations that don’t take long and have amazing options.
Some of the dishes in the 220 space are not super unique, as the restaurant is more about the experience. However, the World Showcase is also an experience, where you can find all sorts of hidden details in each pavilion, space characters and more. In addition, the pavilions also have unique shops to visit, as well as attractions to enjoy, so there’s not much boring time outside of the dining reserve.
As we approach Disney World’s 50th anniversary, EPCOT will also be showcasing its harmonic fireworks. And, the Rose & Crown dining room in the UK pavilion and the Spice Road Table in the Morocco pavilion will offer dining experiences overlooking the nightly show. If you decide to dine at Space 220 later in the evening, you may miss Harmonious (which is sure to be AMAZING).
If we were to make a recommendation, we would say you should try to spend time in both locations if you can. Space 220 is a place you can visit once and enjoy, while the world showcase is a place where you can come back again and again. So whenever you’re planning your next trip to Disney World, be sure to dedicate an entire day to EPCOT to experience all that the park has to offer.
