It was originally scheduled to open in Fall 2019, but it was delayed multiple times to October 1, 2021, until it changed to September 20, 2021 as part of Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary celebration, since the opening was postponed indefinitely following the closure of the park, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Space 220 takes guests on a culinary journey into the stars. Taking a space elevator on a 220 mile journey up to the Centauri Space Station, guests can enjoy fine dining with panoramic day and night views of the Earth through the station's viewports.
