It also features narration from Angela Lansbury, who played Mrs. Potts in the original film.

Space 220 has a theme that is quite simply out of this world and is scheduled to. open at Epcot in February 2020. Located next to Mission: SPACE, this new table-service restaurant will give guests the feeling of dining 220 miles above the Earth's surface. From the moment of check-in a unique dining experience is guaranteed. Upon arrival, guests will be guided to their seats past the grow zone, a spinning wall of produce that mimics Earth's gravity and represents some of the fresh ingredients used by the restaurant's culinary team.

This is what I love about WDW, you can still experience the same things you did 20-30 years ago and have new things to look forward to as well. I'm anxious to see the new Star Wars hotel and the changes coming to EPCOT.

I am looking forward to Remy's Ratatouille Adventure the most. I rode it in Disneyland Paris and loved it.
