A Restaurant… Or a Rave?

While the interior design at Connections Eatery is typically sleek and elegant, it was not that way for Guests visiting the location this weekend. Guests visiting the restaurant on September 14 and 15 were treated to an unintentional light show along the restaurant’s exterior walls.

According to X user and Disney fanatic @SirBrayden, the source of the problem is due to EPCOT’s reliance on LED lights.

A similar issue was also seen at EPCOT’s entrance, as seen by this Guest’s video from September 15.

Regardless of what is the cause of the issue, these impromptu light shows are making me want a Disney-themed rave show… anyone else?
