At Walt Disney World Resort, it seems there is always one Park undergoing a major change. Previously we saw Disney’s Hollywood Studios get revamped, and now, EPCOT’s Future World has been undergoing a major overhaul.

With the entire front of the Park surrounded by construction walls, Guests are itching to see what the final product will look like. We may not be able to explore a completed EPCOT just yet, but today two new additions have come to EPCOT. The new flagship merchandise store, Creations Shop, has opened to Guests and the newly revamped Club Cool is back to making Guests want to spit out their Beverley drinks!

When the Creations Shop opened this morning, the demand skyrocketed! Guests have been hearing about the new store for quite some time now, plus, seeing something get completed at EPCOT is cause for celebration. For those looking to enter the store, lines quickly formed to a wait time of 30-45 minutes to enter. As capacity and social distancing regulations have relaxed at Disney World, we have not to see wait times to enter a store for quite some time, so it is clear to see that Disney fans wanted to check out all of the new store details and merchandise.

Hi, I’m Jay! (@aestheticpuppet) also Tweeted about the shops opening and noted that the crowds were insane!

It’s crazy out here lol

Do not fret if you are visiting Creations Shop today and notice that merchandise is flying off the shelves. Cast Members have plenty of stock in the back, but as crowds continue to take up most of the shop, it will likely take them a little longer to re-stock than usual. That being said, there is always a chance that a product will sell out!

It is great to see that a new store has infused so much excitement into EPCOT, and clearly, this is just a small taste or, sip (Club Cool, you get it?) of what is to come once Future World is finally complete! 

What do you think of the new Creations Shop and Club Cool? Would you wait in line to enter the store?
