Orlando, we have a delay.
Originally set to open in just a few weeks, Space 220, the new outer space themed restaurant coming to Epcot has been delayed until February 2020.
The information comes from the job postings. Within each job posting, Disney gives a short summary of the dining experience and what castmembers can expect. Castmembers will,
Help ensure a smooth departure as guests blast off to enter the International Space Station suspended 220 miles above the Earth’s surface and assist in delivering an unmatched intergalactic dining experience. With stellar views and gourmet menu offerings, Space 220 is truly “The Height of Dining.”
This little tidbit is also put in there;
Space 220 plans to launch in February 2020 and we’re looking for [job position] to join our crew and start training in January.
According to WDWNT, Executive Chef, Theo Schoenegger, has jetted out and is no longer on board with the restaurant. Disney has several job postings listed for several positions for Space 220. The Executive Chef position is not listed with the rest of the Space 220 positions so we assume that a new Executive Chef has been brought on board.
The restaurant will be operated by Patina Restaurant Group who also operates Maria and Enzo’s, Via Napoli and Tutto Italia at Disney World and several restaurants in Disneyland. Current job postings have the restaurant under the name Space 220 though we believe this to be a working title.
The menu is said to feature international cuisine and one unique note is that the wine menu is extensive, showcasing more than 1,000 bottles of the world’s finest wines and a wide selection of craft beers from around the world.
Disney Parks Blog has stated that, “No dining experience on Earth can match what’s in store, because this new restaurant will take you into outer space for incredible dining experiences that are ‘out of this world”.
Well, we will just have to wait a bit longer to experience this unique dining experience.
Thank you for stopping by and for the love of the mouse, never forget, that it all started with a mouse.
