Yes, you read that right — Club Cool is coming back to EPCOT so all of you Beverly challenge Disney fans can start getting excited about the location’s return!
We just learned that EPCOT would be opening a brand new Creations Shop (seen above), which will serve at the Disney Park’s flagship merchandise location. But that’s not all because next to it, Disney has also announced that a new and improved Club Cool would appear as well. Disney Parks Blog announced the return, written by Imagineer Zach Riddley:
Adjacent to the shop will be a revitalized Club Cool Hosted by Coca-Cola, which will also open this summer. This 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.
Opening Creations Shop and Club Cool will be an important milestone in our ongoing transformation of the park. These fun and energetic locations will continue the reimagining of what will soon be a new neighborhood at the entrance and center of the park, called World Celebration. Late last year we unveiled a new fountain at the main entrance, followed this spring by new flags, lighting and music that further re-energize your entry into EPCOT. Creations Shop extends that forward momentum, and we can’t wait for you to step inside for the first time this summer.
As we can see from the article, the “fan-favorite experience” will return, which of course means the sampling of all the drinks. For those who did not know, Club Cool allowed EPCOT Guests to sample as many Coke products from around the world, as much as they wanted. Although some did not taste as good as others, that was the fun part! (Beverly, anyone?)
The experience not only allowed Guests to expand their pallets, but it was a refreshing way to grab a drink for free! Which, when we’re talking about Disney, a free drink is a rare occasion.
As a reminder, here were the flavors previously available at Club Cool. :
- Krest Ginger Ale from Mozambique
- Fanta Kolita from Costa Rica
- Beverly from Italy
- Vegeta Beta from Japan
- Kinley Lemon from Israel
- Lift Apple from Mexico
- Smart Watermelon from China
- Mezzo Mix from Germany
At this time we are unsure of what flavors will be available but Inside the Magic will update you as we get information.
Future World has been undergoing a huge transformation and if you have visited the Walt Disney World park, you know that as soon as you pass Spaceship Earth. Guests are met with a construction wall maze that has left the front of the park looking like a demolition zone. Knowing that there are completions dates now for parts of the section is great because that means we will start to get half of the park back!
Until Club Cool is back, Guests can enjoy the same Coke drinks at the Coca-Cola store and rooftop bar at Disney Springs.
