Steel Rises on Roof of Connections Café and Eatery in EPCOT

Progress continues on the roof of Connections Café and Eatery, the new restaurant next to Creations Shop at EPCOT, which has been coming together quickly since it was announced last November. Exterior work has mainly been focused on the side facing Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

The front of the building has been completely painted, though scaffolding remains on the wall closest to Spaceship Earth. We also noticed that the column next to that scaffolding had a new steel structure atop it.

We could see the steel better from the ground. It seems like it is going to be an extension of the column.

Roof work at Connections Café and Eatery has been ongoing but difficult to see for several months.

The column and everything past it wrapping around towards Cosmic Rewind have yet to be completely repainted to the new cream color.

The paneling atop the column is torn where the steel has been added.

We may see the old paneling be replaced.
