We are all anxiously awaiting the opening of this new immersive restaurant in EPCOT. Space 220 will be housed next to Mission: Space in the former Future World section of EPCOT. As we wait for the doors to open, we have to ask, what will be vegan at Space 220? We now have an answer as menus have been released.
Right now, we have seen the entrance signs for Space 220 safely housed behind boxes. Closer to opening, the boxes will be removed and the signs revealed. We recently spoke to a cast member who saw the signs go in but they were boxed up before he could get a peek. Space 220 is scheduled to open on September 20, with reservations also opening that day.
We went from the image above, to the sign reveal below – posted by the Space 220 instagram account:
Space 220 restaurant will give you the feeling of dining 220 miles up from earth. You’ll look out into space and down at our home planet while you dine. We are so excited to experience this new type of dining and can’t wait to see what Disney comes up with.
Here are some interior photos, courtesy of WDWNT:
The Space 220 check-in area
Guests receive a physical boarding pass to ride the Space Elevator.
The interior is super sleek and space-like, as you might imagine.
Who needs to ride a space shuttle to get views like this?!
This seating area and vast window is giving me major Sea Castle vibes from Horizons (which I know was the undersea future but still).
As of now, we now have menu information from the Space 220 site:
Here is the lounge menu which has nothing for vegans. Perhaps they can modify the cauliflower but the tempura batter most likely has dairy and eggs in it. We’ll find out more after opening.
As you can see on the menu, Space 220 will offer a Prix Fixe menu for lunch, at $55 per person which includes an appetizer and entree. The dinner prix fixe menu will be $79 per person and include appetizer, entree, and dessert. Appetizers listed above feature a Galaxy Grain Salad, and the Space Greens (shown below) may be vegan as well.
The lunch entrees include one vegan item, the Terra-Bolognese, featuring plant-based tempeh ragu and macadamia nut ricotta. We’ll have to wait and see what corn linguini is…
Space 220 Terra-Bolognese
Here’s what it looked like when WDWNT ordered it:
We’ll have a review of this item just as soon as we can get over to try it!
Here’s the vegan plant-based Carrot Cake dessert as well from WDWNT:
The lunch menu also notes side items which assumedly can be made vegan in most if not all cases.
Here, the dinner menu shows the updated pricing but same items as lunch.
Space 220 dinner entrees featuring the vegan Terra-Bolognese again.
A dessert will be included with Space 220 dinner service, looks like we have a choice of vegan Carrot Cake and fruit sorbet! Also sides may be added for an additional cost.
Here is the dessert menu with dessert drinks, if you’d like to just get dessert or lounge bites at the lounge.
