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

Local Vendors We Recommend in Orlando

The hottest trend in the ultimate Disney vacation is utilizing local vendors who are/or used to be Disney Cast Members to enhance your trip.  There are a wide variety of services and products you can get from these wonderful people, so we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites that we have personally utilized and would recommend. Charcuterie: Ordering a charcuterie board for your family or party is a great way to enhance an arrival day when you might be a bit snacky or maybe for a pool day at the resort.  It's the perfect snack to munch on throughout the day and makes you feel just a little bit fancy.   Journey Across the Board This is the charcuterie you order to feel bougie and pampered and really elevate your trip.  Their boards are premium and they can be designed and personalized in so many ways. You can even upgrade to include beautiful keepsakes.  What makes them especially great is the ability to suit so many dietary concerns.  They create any food style or allergy from
