UPDATE 3/18/22: Again over on Instagram, Zach Riddley confirmed that Connections Café is indeed the future home of the new EPCOT Starbucks.
As you may know, a temporary Starbucks location is near Refreshment Port.
The post also states that the Starbucks location is being designed to fit the aesthetic of its surroundings like the ones in the other three theme parks.
The image below is the newest concept art. The kitchen appears to be surrounded by glass which will allow guests to watch the cast members in action as they’ll be making various bakery items for Connections Eatery.
On Instagram, Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley shared a bit of progress from Connections Café and Eatery, a new dining location coming to EPCOT.
A new marquee was put into place and boasts the signature EPCOT World Bold font that we’ve seen appearing in other signage in the park.
The new restaurant is set to open this spring within World Celebration and is described as a “fast-casual restaurant and adjoining café.”
