A new nighttime adult-oriented offering is coming to Epcot. The “After Hours Wind Down” starts April 17th and is currently scheduled to run through September 15th (shortly before the Food and Wine Festival starts.) Official description of the event from the reservations page:
Following a fantastic fireworks spectacular, stick around Epcot as you take your pick from 4 exclusive lounges and satisfy your senses with tempting cuisine, as created by award-winning Epcot chefs and sommeliers.
The four participating locations will each offer a different drinking and dining experience (subject to change), and AJ of the Disney Food Blog shared some details on what might be available at each lounge:
