Photo Tour: All Star Music’s Intermission Food Court in Walt Disney World Reopens After Refurbishment

All Star Music’s Intermission Food Court reopened on Wednesday after a refurbishment that began on August 1st. Originally slated to reopen on December 21, guests at All Star Music now have a fully functioning Food Court to enjoy a few weeks ahead of schedule.
