"Connections Cafe" Will Be New Starbucks Location At EPCOT

"Connections Cafe" Will Be New Starbucks Location At EPCOT

News - WDW
19-Mar-2022

The perfect start to any Disney day is a delicious coffee on a lovely warm morning. Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley has shared concept art for the new "Connections Cafe" - which is located next door to the new "Creations Shop" (formally Mouse Gear) - which will be the new home of Starbucks at EPCOT.

Here is an early concept rendering for Connections Café at EPCOT, as seen from the south side of the new location right across the breezeway from Creations Shop. What I love about this piece is that it beautifully illustrates a few points of “connection” that we designed for our guests in this new space - how the gardens and greenery within World Celebration will complement the interiors, allowing our guests to harmonize with nature outside; how friends and family will gather together around a meal or beverage; and how show kitchens will provide a culinary experience for our guests within. The kitchen you see represented here will actually be responsible for making a variety of baked goods, which will be available at Connections Eatery.

You can just make out how the exterior approach reestablishes the arc of the building, expressing the original concept of a radial grid. Like the adjacent Creations Shop, light and color will play a big part in the interior aesthetic, including the same floor to ceiling glazing and a massive hand-painted mural we’ve previously mentioned within Connections Eatery. One very important detail I want to share about Connections Café, is that it will be the future home of Starbucks at EPCOT when the location opens this spring! Like other Starbucks locations inside our theme parks, this Starbucks will be designed to fit the theme of its surroundings – but more of those details to come later on.

Stay connected with me here as I look forward to sharing more details about Connections Café and Eatery and the overall EPCOT transformation as we keep moving forward!
