For this trip we had booked a dinner reservation at 5:15PM. We arrived at the podium for check-in about 5:00PM. We were able to successful check-in with no issue. Frank, the CM behind the desk even let me play host for a few minutes!
SPOILERS AHEAD; If you’re like me and don’t watch YouTube videos or any media in general about new experiences at Disney then you’re going to want to stop reading now.
The experience begins from the second the CM calls your name. To begin your journey, you board a special space elevator that will ascend to the stars! Along the way, viewports will give you an aerial view of Epcot as you travel high above the planet. Once you arrive on the space pavilion, guests walk down a hallway where you can see all the plants and vegetables that they are growing for your meal.
As you dine, you peer out and enjoy amazing daytime and nighttime views of Earth from 220 miles up. There are two levels of seating in the restaurant, the lower deck is closer to the windows and the view is somewhat limited and the upper affords you a view of the entire windowscape.

Throughout our meal there are “events” that happened outside the window. From Star cruises and transport Ships docking at the space pavilion to astronauts making repairs to the exterior. One notable one is astronauts having a lightsaber fight!
What We Found Magical
The theming is amazing, from the moment you check-in to the moment you leave. The menu, the atmosphere and everything in between. Even when you go to the bathroom there are announcements running in the bathroom about airlock emergency procedures. The theming is impressive.
The food is very good. Not the best on property, but VERY good, and this is coming from someone that eats a lot, just ask my travel companions. The options are wide, and the theming carries throughout the menu. The full menu can be found here.
The overall experience was incredible. We felt like we were in space. The service for the most part was great, and the CM really did a great job making it feel like you were experiencing a once in a lifetime event.
What Needs a Little Pixie Dust?
There isn’t much we would change, if we had to say anything it would be the pacing of the meal. Our meal took about 2.5 hours. This was our particular experience. Lunch experiences are taking about 1.5 hours, since the lunch pre-fixe does not include dessert, and people are less likely to order a drink at lunch. I would have liked the meal service to be a little bit faster, but I think they make it this long so you can experience the variety of events that happen outside the space pavilion windows. The check took a little long to acquire but this could have been for any number of reasons. We expect the service to become more streamlined once the Cast Members and Kitchen find their footing in outer space.
Who is this for?
This is for the guest that wants to add a little magic to trip and guarantee themselves an amazing experience. The pricing is expensive, but it’s Disney. This experience is definitely for the space lovers out there…a truly stellar adventure!
Would we do this again?
Absolutely, we loved this unique experience that Disney has created over the last 3 years.
