Over the past few weeks, more and more signage has gone up around Connections Cafe, the soon-to-be newest eatery at EPCOT. While it was recently announced that EPCOT’s Starbucks will soon be re-homed to Connections Cafe, today Disney released a glimpse into the menu and dining palette that this space will offer. In keeping with the international embrace that makes EPCOT so unique, Connections Cafe will be all about connecting with cultures from around the world and communing with people over the thing that unites everyone — food.
Connections Eatery promises to be a fast-casual quick-service restaurant with choices for everyone. The cafe will offer items from burgers, to salads, to specialty cocktails, so let’s go over some of the things you’ll be able to order soon! Pull up a chair as EPCOT proudly presents: the menu.
