While it appeared for some time that the originally slated construction on the restaurant was delayed, the Future World area (where Electric Umbrella is located) is currently undergoing a redesign for the AMAZING new Epcot!
And as of today, the Walt Disney World website is listing updated hours for the quick service location. You’ll see in the screenshot below that Electric Umbrella will be open from 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM on February 15, 2020.
However, for dates starting February 16, 2020, the page reads “No Times Available.”
It is worth noting, however, that the webpage has seen changes on this possible closing date from time to time. Still, with the website noting a closing “this winter” regardless, it does seem that the time may be upon us.
Electric Umbrella has been a staple quick-service location in Epcot with its chicken nuggets, burgers, desserts, and other eats, and we’ll miss grabbing a burger and fries underneath the glow of those perfectly retro-Epcot neon umbrellas inside.
Not to mention the lovely covered seating area outside, from which we enjoyed the view of the Fountain of Nations many a time (well, before the Fountains were closed, too, that is…).
Still… though we’ll be without the ol’ Umbrella, we won’t be without a few classic quick service eats while in Epcot. Counter Service staples like Chicken Breast Nuggets, Flatbreads, and more are newly available at the Epcot Experience.
We’re also eagerly awaiting a new counter-service eatery in The American Adventure Pavilion with the Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue. It’s all part of an ever-changing Epcot! And if you’re interested in everything new coming to the park, you can keep up with the exciting Epcot transformation here!
Remember Disney often changes the closing dates for locations, so we will keep you posted on whether Electric Umbrella officially meets its end this weekend. Be sure to check back for updates!
