“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 long. 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,” Disney said on its blog.

The new restaurant replaced the former Electric Umbrella restaurant in the park.

Imagineers said the new restaurant features colorful murals, floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, the nearby Creations Shop, Spaceship Earth and even more that is to come during the theme park’s historic transformation.
