Epcot’s multi-year transformation is upon us and, unfortunately, that means an old favorite has closed for good!
We’ve known for a while that we could expect the closure of Electric Umbrella before the end of the year (sad face). Today, though, we’ve had to say goodbye forever!
Electric Umbrella was a quick-service location for burgers, salads, and more, but it wasn’t just a prime spot for the food! The restaurant had so much room for guests to kick back and relax as they took in an awesome view of the Fountain of Nations.
Now, with the Fountains being removed and many other changes happening around Future World, it’s no surprise that we’re losing this classic restaurant. But, we are still totally sad to see it go! 🙁 Although we couldn’t fully get to see Electric Umbrella with the construction, you can spot the top of the restaurant behind the walls built around Future World.
In fact, a lot of Future World looks pretty different today with closures abound. Pin Central has also closed today! You can the top of the structure peeking out from above the construction walls.
Of course, there is an upside to all the construction! Taste Track is set to begin serving hamburgers soon and Eats at the Epcot Experience just debuted a new menu to serve other family-friendly faves so guests have a chance to snack on the same classics, even with Electric Umbrella closing. Plus, the food scene at Epcot is about to get A LOT cooler with Space 220 opening soon (who’s ready to dine at the Space Station with us??).
There are also a bunch of new signs around Epcot to help you navigate where you’re going!
While we’re going to miss Electric Umbrella, we are eager to see all the changes coming to Epcot soon!
