Space 220 Bar


Is it possible to get into Space 220 without a reservation?  Yes, but it isn't easy!  Here's how we secured a last-minute ride into space.

We walked around Mission Space to find a short line but no Cast Members to be seen. We asked people in line if that was the line for Space 220 and they said yes so we got in. It was unclear that the line was “closed” so about 15 or so minutes later a CM finally showed up and kicked us out of line. She said it’s closed and she doesn’t know when it will reopen but unofficially, “hover”. Once you are in the line it’s an estimated 90-120 minute wait. That’s a long time but we didn’t really have anything else to do on this particular day. So we did hover and sit on the ground for a little while near the line.  There are no benches and not really any shade so it isn't the most pleasant experience. The Cast Member returned and reopened the line about an hour later and we hopped on in along with a few others that were hovering. But, a couple had gotten out of line about 30ish mins prior while we were waiting. So once we got in line we were let in about 5 mins later. Not terrible at all when you were told up to two MORE hours. Your mileage may vary.  Please note this strategy only works for the bar area, which is only 10 seats, hence the long waits.  The restaurant and lounge are reservation only.

The elevator ride is so cool for sure, no pictures there because I just wanted to enjoy it. In no time, we were in orbit! We grabbed our seats at the bar and looked over the menu. The bartender here was wonderful and we took his recommendations for our first two drinks. They were delicious! We were also given the option of ordering lounge bites or the full three course menu from the bar. We went with the short rib sliders and I asked if I could possibly have just a salad and he accommodated which was awesome because I needed my veggies! The salad is actually made from all hydroponic plants grown in Epcot so that was really cool! The sliders were so so good as well. Would definitely recommend those as a bar bite choice. 

Red Star- Jameson, Dragon Fruit, Fresh Lemon, Onyx
Short Rib Sliders - White Cheddar Cheese, Sriracha Aioli, Lettuce, Tomato, Butter Pickles

Since we were having such a good time we ordered another round of drinks… and another round! We tried almost all of the specialty cocktails on the menu. The first two were the best, bartenders know their stuff. I know one was the red star but I forgot what the other one was. The atmospritz with the cotton candy was also a ton of fun!  We enjoyed all the fun little touches in the drinks from the lovely garnishes, to moon dust and even some color changing! 

The Nebula- Maker's Mark, Pineapple, Honey, Passion Fruit, Angostura Bitters, Moon Dust

Celestial Cosmopolitan - Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Cointreau, Cranberry-Hibiscus Juice, Moon Dust

Atmospritz- New Amsterdam, Aperol, Blood Orange, Orange Juice, Prosecco, Cotton Candy Cloud
The Atmospritz - after
We enjoyed watching the goings-on in space around us while we spent some time here and learned that the sun sets on the Earth at the same time as the sun sets outside in Epcot so that was really cool to see that change while we were in there as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and the service was top notch. Since the sun set in space, it was dark out when we made it back down to earth.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
