…why it’s called the Electric Umbrella?
|That is NOT a giant, upside-down lemon!|
Originally, this restaurant was called Stargate and resided in Communicore East from 1982 to 1994. It became the Electric Umbrella in 1994 when the area was renamed Innoventions East. In 1982, Stargate served the Stargazer hamburger (word is that it tasted like a Big Mac). My youngest let me know that the chicken fingers served here are the best he has ever tasted.

October 2011 marks the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. The Vacation Kingdom has seen a lot of changes over the past four decades and the editorial staff at Imaginerding wants to celebrate the unique and rich history of the resort with a series of posts. A very special thanks to Celeste Cronrath for designing the series of logos. Make sure to follow her on Twitter.

I haven’t eaten at the Electric Umbrella in a long time. Sunshine Seasons is so good that I just can’t bring myself not to eat there when I’m getting counter service in Future World.
However, the top floor of Electric Umbrella can be a nice place to sit and relax on hot days.
It seems to me like an electric umbrella would be very dangerous to use in the rain….
