The Long-Awaited Space 220 Restaurant Will Open This Fall in EPCOT
After years not months of delay, the much-anticipated and long-awaited Space 220 Restaurant will open this Fall in Epcot at Walt Disney World.
One of our favorite and always reliable Twitter personalities, @ScottGustin, just confirmed the news with this tweet below:
NEW: Space 220 is set to open at Epcot this fall, according to Patina Restaurant Group.
The restaurant is currently in the process of hiring team members — several job listings were posted earlier this week including host, bartender, cook, and more. pic.twitter.com/sCun4UNoQI

If you have been following along with the ongoing Space 200 Restaurant saga, it was originally supposed to open in December 2019. It was then pushed back indefinitely and even longer due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
We were hopeful it would have opened when the Parks reopened last Summer but we were all made to wait even longer!
A few weeks ago, Patinia Group, the company that will operate the restaurant, posted several job listings. However, those were pulled. But, just a few days ago, they were listed again and have remain posted every since.
While an official opening date has not been announced for the Space 220 Restaurant at EPCOT other than “this Fall,” I am very optimistic it will be open just in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebrations to kick off on October 1, 2021. I’m sure Disney would want to have this new concept open by then as well.
When the Parks closed for the pandemic last March, many reports stated that the Space 220 Restaurant was near competition. There were rumors that had to re-order a special type of glass that will be displayed in the Restaurant. And, with all of the shiping delays the pandemic has caused around the world, waiting over a year for a piece of glass doesn’t sounds too far fetched!
