Connections Café & Eatery Officially Opens April 27th, 2022 at EPCOT

Hi everyone!

Connections Café & Eatery officially opens April 27th, 2022 at EPCOT! Connections Café (Starbucks) soft opened earlier today and now the Eatery has as well. Here is a look at official photos from Disney!

Connections Café & Eatery opens April 27, 2022, inside EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The new location features two distinct experiences all under one roof – an eatery on one side serving lunch and dinner menus, and a café and pastry shop on the other open all day. This large new dining location is the next step in the ongoing transformation of EPCOT and a highlight of the newly named World Celebration neighborhood. (David Roark, Photographer)

The Disney Parks Blog says this mural is called “Global Gathering”. “This magnificent piece of art depicts the heart of this restaurant – people from around the world gathering around food. It’s one of the largest murals Walt Disney Imagineering has ever created.”

Connections Café & Eatery in EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., features three original floor inlays inspired by Walt Disney’s 1966 “Florida Project” site plans, where EPCOT was to serve as the literal and conceptual “center” of Walt Disney World Resort. The park’s original DNA is woven throughout Connections Café and Eatery, the latest example of how the EPCOT transformation honors the past while moving forward into the future.
