After Electric Umbrella is refurbed it will reopen as a yet to be named restaurant, same location. Similarly Mouse Gear will be refurbed and reopen as Mouse Gear or (Insert new name here?), in its old location.
Hopefully the refurb will not take too long. I'm probably being unrealistically hopeful, but I'd love for it to be updated before my October trip this fall...
(Still sad to see it go... loved sitting in the round area people watching people pass by in the plaza)

I'm just hoping for this temporary kiosk to have the Brisket Sandwich with Beer Cheese Sauce in it's menu, and I hope we don't miss it when the new or refurbished restaurant reopens.

Blink, blink. Breathe, breathe. Day in, day out.
I wish they'd keep the "electric umbrella" theming... With today's technology, imagine how cool it would be to have a sort of rain-stormy projected sky with an occasional lightning storm making the umbrella's lights flicker (and possibly a quiet style waterfall around the umbrellas).

Like Rainforest Cafe but better.

You just described every afternoon in central Florida from the middle of Spring until October. ☔⚡💧🌀

Presumably serving the same awful burgers that Electric Umbrella served, just without air conditioning and refillable beverages?
Willing to bet we've seen the end of 'refillable beverages'. (it's difficult to continue to offer anything based on trusting the customer not to take advantage.) Sort of like the death knell of self served Dole Whips at the Polynesian. :confused:

Will it remain quick service? I kinda feel attached to the 80s theme and just like to chill in there. It’s a substantial restaurant and to replace it with a kiosk seems mad?!

At least this one is themed. I seem to recall Taste Track being a plain trailer before when they used to sell Croissant Donuts.

I remember this kiosk also temporarily sold grilled cheese sandwiches. We spent a while looking for a bench nearby to sit with our food back then.

It'd be nice if they also place a few tables and chairs. Eating burgers and fries while walking or standing, isn't ideal.

A few gutted Test Vehicles or similar inspiration with seating in them would be nice.

The big question is will the Mouse Gear refurb get rid of the musty odor?
