Since its opening in the Fall of 2021, a reservation at Space 220 Restaurant has been one of the more elusive Walt Disney World dining reservations to secure. But is this galactic restaurant worth the price tag?
Space 220 is an immersive dining experience where you’ll be enjoying culinary delights while taking in views of the galaxy from the Centauri Space Station. When you arrive, you will be handed your boarding pass. When your group is called you will board the space elevator which will shoot you 220 miles up into space. Be sure to watch the windows below for incredible views of Florida as you rise higher and higher!
Lunch and Dinner menus at Space 220 are both prix-fixe consisting of modern American cuisine. Lunch consists of an appetizer and entree. Dinner will be an appetizer, entree, and dessert. If you are looking for something lighter but still want to see what all the hype is about, Space 220 also has a lounge option with a full drink menu and a handful of small bites.
If you indulge in alcoholic beverages, I highly recommend checking out some of their uniquely themed drinks. If you enjoy bourbon, try the Nebula, Maker’s Mark, pineapple, honey, passion fruit, and angostura bitters. It was so smooth! We also tried the Stratosphere Strawberry Lemonade which was made with Tito’s lemonade, strawberry, lemon juice, and thyme. The thyme really gave it a fun kick and it was really refreshing on a warm day. The kids really enjoyed the Moon Rocks celestial beverage which consisted of coconut, blue cotton candy syrup, lemonade, moon dust, and moon rocks and served in a souvenir cup. The moon rocks are actually pop rocks and were definitely their favorite part of the drink. The kids also received a pack of trading cards with their drink.
For appetizers, we decided to try the Centauri Caesar Salad and the Starry Calamari. Both were delicious but nothing outstanding. The Caesar salad had a perfect balance of ingredients, and the dressing was yummy. The calamari was pretty standard.
Our main entrees were a huge hit. We tried the Miso Glazed Salmon & Slow Rotation Zero-G Short Ribs. The kids chose the steak & space fries and the smashed burger. The kids' meals were pretty good and a couple steps up from your typical dry over-cooked kids burger! The Miso Salmon was flavorful. But the winner was the short ribs. They were incredibly tender, the grits were creamy, and the sauce was so delicious.
The food at Space 220 really is a work of art and we really appreciate that as a component of the dining experience. The desserts really blew us away. They were so pretty! The kids landed on gelato which was yummy but average. The grand finale was the Short Cake. This was not your typical strawberry shortcake though. It’s made with a mascarpone mousse and matcha air cake and topped with strawberries. It was out of this world!
All in all, I give Space 220 an 8 out of 10. The service was top notch and the theming of the menu & experience was pretty cool. We will definitely revisit this one and I recommend you check it out on your next visit to EPCOT.
