Not too long ago we were celebrating the opening of EPCOT’s newest restaurant, Space 220. We’ve been enjoying other new additions to EPCOT as it continues its massive overhaul. The France Pavilion is buzzing with its expansion including Disney’s newest attraction, Remy’s Ratoullie Adventure, and delicious table-service and quick-service restaurant, La Crêperie de Paris. The World Showcase glows at night with the new nighttime spectacular, Harmonious. And the four neighborhoods including World Celebration, World Discovery, World Nature, and World Showcase are starting to take form.

The new restaurant will be a quick-service option and has been named “Connections Café and Eatery.” By the look and location of the restaurant in the World Celebration neighborhood, we believe it will likely act as a replacement to the former Electric Umbrella quick-service restaurant that closed in February 2020. Disney did not announce an opening time frame or food details at this time for the new Connections Cafe and Eatery.

Are you looking forward to dining at the new quick-service restaurant coming to EPCOT? Let us know what you’re hoping they serve in the comments!
