Space 220 Restaurant Lunch

Space 220 Restaurant is an out of this world dining experience and that pun was totally intended! Located in the World Discovery area of EPCOT, Space 220 Restaurant serves modern American cuisine with a prix-fixe, 2 course meal at lunch and a prix-fixe, 3-course meal at dinner. While you enjoy your meal, you'll also enjoy amazing views of Earth from 220 miles above, aboard the Centauri space station.

The host stand for the restaurant is a little hidden as its tucked away in the Mission: SPACE Pavilion. Head to the right of the pavilion and you'll see a small sign for Space 220 located up the ramp. Once you check-in, you'll enter the restaurant lobby where you'll be given a boarding pass to take the space elevator to the restaurant. The boarding pass is such a simple touch but it's one of those great Disney details that fully immerses you in the theme.

The space elevator is almost like it's own attraction! It's such a neat experience as you take the space elevator up to the space station. The elevator offers great aerial views of EPCOT as you travel high above the planet. My kids and I thought this was so cool!

The awesome views don't stop at the space elevator. The restaurant features panoramic views of space while you dine. Keep an eye on the windows as you'll see things and people pass by periodically. Some tables offer better views than others so it's possible that you might not be able to see everything happening from your table.

Lunch is served from 11:30am-3:30pm. Pricing for lunch is $55 per adult and $29 per child. The adult pricing includes one Lift-Off (appetizer) and one Star Course (entrees). Side note, I love the names of the menu categories and items! So clever. The kids' pricing includes one Star Course (entree), one Supernova Sweets (dessert) and one Celestial Beverage (drink). In addition, all kids' meals include a pack of Space 220 collectible trading cards.

I've dined at Space 220 a couple times now and so far, I have really enjoyed everything I've ordered off the menu. My absolute favorite Lift-Off is the Blue Moon Cauliflower. It's tempura fried cauliflower with housemade hot sauce and blue cheese dust. It is so delicious! My only complaint is that it could use more hot sauce but that doesn't diminish the dish. Other Lift-Offs that were ordered and enjoyed during our recent visit included the Big Bang Burrata, Centauri Caesar Salad and Starry Calamari.

For the Star Course, I think the star (again, pun intended) is the Galactic Miso Salmon. Not only is the presentation of this course super cool, it's also really tasty! Some of the other entrees that were ordered were the Steak Salad and Roasted Chicken Breast. Everyone in my party was very pleased with their meal. No complaints here.

My kids ordered the Spaceghetti and Mission Macaroni for their Star Courses. Both boys were happy with their choices and they loved their Cosmic Cupcake for dessert. As an extra treat for the kids, you can order a collectible cup that is absolutely adorable! It's a great souvenir to take home. The cups are an additional charge on top of the prix-fixe menu pricing. At the time of our visit, the cup was an additional $5 if you ordered soda, milk, apple juice, or water, which I thought was a really reasonable price for such a cute cup.

For adults, Space 220 offers really fun alcoholic beverage options. Some of the Atmospheric Spirits include the Stargarita, The Big Tang and The Nebula. On my recent visit, I tried the Imagination and it was so refreshingly delicious. It's Bacardi light rum, Malibu rum, blood orange, pineapple, passion fruit and a Pop Rock rim. Not only was it delicious but it was pretty too. I would order this drink again in a heartbeat.

Reservations for this restaurant are highly recommended and unfortunately, can also be difficult to book. As you may or may not know, guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel can book their dining 60 days in advance for their length of stay. If you want to dine at Space 220, I recommend planning to visit the restaurant towards the end of your vacation. This will help give you the best chance to secure an advance reservation. Although reservations can be difficult to book, even 60 days in advance, it's not unheard of to find availability closer to your vacation dates. So don't give up hope if you aren't able to secure a reservation. 
The theming for this restaurant is amazing! Even if the food wasn't good, I would probably recommend visiting the restaurant at least once to enjoy the atmosphere. Luckily, I found the food to be equally as enjoyable as the theme! The pricing is a little on the high side for lunch but the portions and quality of food felt worth the cost. I will absolutely return to Space 220 for another stellar meal.

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

Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try. When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park. View from our table The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake.  On our first visit to Mythos, we

Bigfire Restaurant Review

Bigfire is, in my opinion, a great addition to Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort. Having been a huge fan of Emeril's which was previously in this location, I was skeptic, but quickly put at ease once we were inside and met our server and have been back several times since. After a full day in the parks, we had a pretty late dinner on the agenda so we started in the lounge attached to the restaurant.  The cocktail selection is quite extensive, with bourbon drinks being the star here. My Manhattan was delicious and set the tone for a great meal ahead! The bar is also a great stop if you don't have a reservation, I found the bartenders friendly, attentive, and making great drinks! The open kitchen is a great feature as you enter the dining room.  The d├ęcor is modern yet cozy with touches of plaid throughout.  The highlight is of course the "big fire", where they wood smoke a variety of meats for the entrees. We started the meal with some wine a
