EPCOT at Walt Disney World has been going through quite an overhaul since initial plans for park changes were made at the D23 Expo in 2019! Future World is no more and the area is now broken up into three new neighborhoods – World Discovery, World Celebration, and World Nature. New attractions and experiences have been popping up around these three new neighborhoods, including a new café and eatery that you’ll want to add to your must-do list.
Connections Café & Eatery
This new dining location is your one-stop shop for both delicious eats and sensational sips! Connections Café is EPCOT’s new Starbucks location serving up all of your coffee favorites, while Connections Eatery is a new quick-service dining experience that offers culinary creations inspired by cuisines from around the globe. With so much change currently underway at the park, this new addition is an exciting step toward an updated look for EPCOT.
The only thing better than a day at Disney is starting your day with a coffee from Starbucks, right? EPCOT’s newest Starbucks location is officially open to the public! Similar to the other Starbucks locations on property at Walt Disney World, this location’s theme is inspired by EPCOT and its new look. Did you know Connection Café is open the same hours as EPCOT? This means whether you need your java pick me up on your way in or out of the park, Connections Café has got you covered!
Connections Eatery is EPCOT’s latest quick-service location serving dishes inspired by French, Asian, and Italian cuisines. Opening daily at 11 AM, Connection Eatery offers Lunch and Dinner options for all sorts of appetites! While they still offer classic fare like salads, fries, and burgers, there are some stand-out items on their menu as well. Some of the most exciting offerings for lunch and dinner include their French Bistro Burger, a plant-based Curry Spice Pizza, General Tso Chicken Salad, and Apple Pie Gelato Shake. Make sure you save room for dessert – their Liege Waffle is the talk of the park! Connections Eatery also offers mobile ordering through the My Disney Experience app to save you time.
We couldn’t ask for a better location in EPCOT for Connections Café & Eatery! It’s located in World Celebration near the new Creations Shop and updated Club Cool! It’s also not far from World Discovery’s newest coaster, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, which opens this weekend at Walt Disney World resort. So whether you’re ready for a quick bite after conquering Walt Disney World’s newest coaster or need a coffee pick-me-up before heading to the countries in World Showcase, you’ll be happy to know that Connections Café & Eatery is open for business!
From the openings of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind to a whole new look for the shops and dining in World Celebration, there’s never been a better time to visit EPCOT. With EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival still in full swing and Food & Wine Festival kicking off in mid July, it’s time to start planning your next Disney day at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
