LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Disney’s Space 220 restaurant had its galactic grand opening Monday morning at EPCOT.
Special guests Mickey and Minnie Mouse were at the ribbon-cutting ceremony wishing travelers a safe voyage before they’re transported, virtually, 220 miles above Earth’s surface to enjoy the restaurant’s inaugural meal.
While traveling to their dining table on the “space elevator,” guests can experience a scenic view of EPCOT and Earth.
After “landing” at Space 220, visitors are met by a crewmember who will walk them to their table, where they can enjoy an upscale, contemporary cuisine in a space-themed, simulated experience.
Disney unveiled the menu on Sept. 14, and guests can partake in a $55 two-course lunch and a $79 three-course dinner that will include a “lift-off” appetizer, “star course” main entrée and “supernova sweets” for dessert.

The Space 220 restaurant opening comes in time for the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration on Oct. 1.
