Epcot Electric Umbrella Food Court

Hi. Does anyone know if the Electric Umbrella food court is still open, and if not, is there anywhere else in Epcot that does the same type of food?
Thanks
James

Great thanks. We go the end of September and read somewhere that it was closing. Is this true, or have I read it wrong.
Thanks

It is closing, not sure if it's one of the ones to be moved, that whole area is being re-done/refurbed - Starbucks etc on the other side are all closed, I know that they are going to have a temp location but that wasn't open when we were there Sept/Oct

It's still open now, and the website shows opening times until April 30 - so my best guess is that it'll close on May 1st.

It's still open at the moment but as Disney announced, and as it says on their website, "As part of the exciting transformation of Epcot, Electric Umbrella is scheduled to close this winter".

Now "this winter" refers to the one we're currently in. Usually that would mean any time between now and the end of March (at the latest). I think Disney are pushing things if they think 1st May is still winter.

Thanks for your replies. We just always liked sitting in there having a burger and cold drink and gaining the energy to start the long walk around world showcase.

It will be terrible if we can't get a burger.
