FIRST LOOK at the FOOD Coming to Connections Eatery in EPCOT

EPCOT is undergoing some massive changes right now, and a whole bunch of new things are on the way!

Connections Cafe

A new Moana-themed attraction and the new Guardians of the Galaxy coaster are just some of the many new things that will soon be added to EPCOT. Another new thing fans will soon be able to experience in this park has to do with something so integral to our very being that it’s in our name…FOOD (we are Disney Food Blog after all!). Connections Cafe & Eatery will bring a new Starbucks location and more treats to this iconic park, and though we’ve already gotten a look at the space’s design and more, today we got some HUGE news.

Today, Disney shared a FIRST LOOK at some of the new dishes that fans will be able to munch on once the Connections Eatery opens up this spring!

The restaurant will be quick service, and will draw inspiration from the many cuisines you can find all around the world. According to Disney, “the purpose of Connections Eatery is to show us how food has the power to bring us together if we open our minds (and our stomachs)!”

Guests will get to see the chefs in action as they make final touches on some sweet treats or craft the perfect pizza dough. But enough about the space, let’s talk about the FOOD!
