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.

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

Remy Brunch Review

On a recent Disney Cruise with a dear friend, we treated ourselves to a brunch at Remy. At the time of writing, this adult only dining option starts at $75 per person. There is a dress code and even at brunch guests definitely dress up for this dining experience. We got all gussied up after rolling out of the oh so comfortable beds on the Disney Fantasy, and went upstairs.  We were quickly escorted to our seat while being given a brief synopsis of the history of the restaurant. Our table had a lovely water view and if one looked hard enough, a small amount of the AquaDuck! We were given a water menu and asked what kind we would like. Simply put, if I am going to indulge in a beverage during an already expensive meal, it's going to be an adult libation nine times out of ten. For that reason, I told our server that I would be happy with tap and so did my dining companion who whispered in my ear she could not justify $15 on breakfast water. We were quickly served complimentary champag
