The new Space 220 restaurant coming to Epcot may finally have an opening date! This restaurant was originally set to open in the winter of 2019 but was pushed back to February 2020 when the original Executive Chef stepped away from the project. Then the COVID-19 closure pushed the date back further.
@ScottGustin on Twitter says March 2021 is the new possible opening date:
I’m now hearing March 2021 as a possible goal date for Space 220… but that timeline comes with the same footnote I shared back in February: https://t.co/WCJc7uLeLo

The “glass issues” Gustin referred to indicates that a large pane of glass, presumably custom-made for the Disney World restaurant, was broken and had to be re-made.
We know from the artist rendering that the restaurant will feature a lot of glass window panes, so one getting broken would undoubtedly derail the overall construction process.
Space 220 will give guests the feeling of dining from outer space. The official description reads: “Step inside Space 220—a celestial panorama of a space station—for a delicious meal! As you dine, peer out and enjoy amazing daytime and nighttime views of Earth from 220 miles up.”
