Elevated dining at Epcot
Space 220 offers spectacular views and tasty food
Hey there, paid subscribers! For “Rode it! Loved it!” this month, I’m going to share a restaurant experience instead of a coaster, thrill ride, or an attraction. Although, as you will see, there is a ride component at this unique dining establishment.
Also, please remember that the next “What’s the Attraction?” discussion thread, which is exclusively for paid subscribers, will take place tomorrow (Friday, October 28), starting at 10:30 a.m. ET. The topic will be whether the Disney parks have become too expensive and/or too difficult to navigate (i.e., advance reservations, Disney Genie+, individual Lightning Lane, etc.). Collect your experiences and thoughts and join in what is sure to be a spirited conversation. And thanks for being a paid subscriber.

Florida’s Disney World has some wonderful themed dining experiences. For example, waitstaff channeling retro parents might give guests a brusque reminder to finish their vegetables at Disney Hollywood Studios’ charming 50's Prime Time Café. Fortunately, they don’t seem to mind if diners watch classic shows on the old black and white televisions installed at each table. It’s always dusk at the Studios’ Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant where cheesy movies are screened as patrons enjoy comfort food in spiffy mid-century convertibles.
At its latest high-concept (with an emphasis on “high”) restaurant, the theme park resort takes the theme–and the food–to, um a whole new level. The premise of Epcot’s Space 220 is that guests are whisked up to a space station overlooking the Earth. The dining room offers expansive views of the planet to accompany the delicious fare.
