The temporary EPCOT Starbucks Traveler's Café in World Showcase will close this spring.

The opening of Connections Café in World Celebration will mean that Starbucks will have a new permanent home, and the temporary building near to the Canada pavilion will soon close.

Starbucks Traveler's Café opened in 2019 and replaced the now demolished Fountain View.

Opening team Cast were supposed to start training there today but looks like they are being sent to other food locations in the park for now

@FerretAfros already addressed this. It was lumped into the marketing because it lined up, but was really a separate project.

Sometime between April 10th and April 25th. I'm calling it. If I'm wrong, you can take my house and family.

My pure guess is in time for Easter but I’m probably way off.

It could absolutely hold up better relatively speaking, but that doesn't mean they won't have to change it. I think it's very unlikely this won't look dated in 20 or so years -- I'm not sure there's a single era of design that's avoided that fate, so there's no real reason to think this will be different. Those trends/eras often come back around after some time has passed, but there's basically always a period where they're out of style. Some of it is probably just due to general shift, where people want something different than their parents.
