  • This is an early concept drawing of what Connections Cafe will look like.
  • He said “this piece beautifully illustrates a few points of “connection” that we designed for our guests in this new space – how the gardens and greenery within World Celebration will complement the interiors, allowing our guests to harmonize with nature outside; how friends and family will gather together around a meal or beverage; and how show kitchens will provide a culinary experience for our guests within. The kitchen you see represented here will actually be responsible for making a variety of baked goods, which will be available at Connections Eatery.”
  • Lights and color will play a big role in this interior aesthetic.
  • There will be a hand-painted mural and the same floor-to-ceiling glazing.
  • Riddley said that more details will come later on.
