Disney has removed Club Cool, Starbucks, and the Fountain of Nations from the Epcot Park…
Ever since Club Cool closed in 2019, fans of the beverage shop have been wondering if it will be coming back to EPCOT. We now have an answer to that question and are happy to know that Club Cool is returning to EPCOT in the new World Celebration.
Club Cool has been a fixture of EPCOT’s Future World for decades, and it’s comforting to know that it will be making a return once the big EPCOT transformation project is complete.
Recently, Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley gave an update on the project and said that the new Club Cool will be located next to Creations Shop, the replacement for the popular Mouse Gear store. That means Club Cool will be in the old Innoventions East building.
Not too many details have been given about the layout or what features the new Club Cool will have, but we assume it will be similar to the old one, with perhaps some improvements. We do know that Club Cool will still be hosted by Coca-Cola, which makes sense seeing their partnership with Disney.
Club Cool was famous because there were soda fountains where guests could get free samples of different sodas from around the world. The most famous of which was the controversial Beverly. Since that’s what 99% of the guests went into the old store for, we can safely assume the new Club Cool will also have something similar, likely with some upgrades.
According to Disney, guests will: “celebrate Coca-Cola in a fresh new way, while keeping the fan-favorite experience that invites you to explore tasty drinks from around the world. This space will also have some new magic to bring the global experience of Coca-Cola to life for you.”
These are just a few of the new projects happening throughout EPCOT park at this time. We’ve already seen the transformation of the new entrance just outside EPCOT’s front gate with new Leave a Legacy walls, a new fountain and a new nighttime lighting package.
As soon as we have more info on the new Club Cool we’ll let you know, so stay tuned.
