BREAKING: Canopy Removed and Demolition Begins On Former Electric Umbrella at EPCOT in Preparation for New Starbucks and Counter Service Restaurant

It’s been over six months since the Electric Umbrella permanently closed at EPCOT, but some elements of the quick-service restaurant were still recognizable in the construction zone behind Spaceship Earth. For a while, we could still see pieces of the iconic awning that used to shade the front of the restaurant, but now it is gone for good.

The umbrella-like awning used to stretch out from the brown portion of the roof.

Inside, a few umbrellas on the ceiling are still visible, but demolition has begun as you can see by the absence of windows and some walls.

The windows have been completely blown out. This segment of the building that juts out is set to be completely demolished.

This area will eventually be home to EPCOT’s new Starbucks location and a different quick-service restaurant. This will use the whole building, so the temporary MouseGear location will need to close at some point to facilitate this.

Hey, can I have an umbrella if you’re just going to demolish them???
