EPCOT has been undergoing many changes as of late. Future World as a whole is being redone, and with it will come new shops, dining locations, and offerings that Guests can enjoy.
Yesterday, we found out the Creations Shop and Club Cool would be making their debut in a few short days on September 15. This means that EPCOT Guests will now have a new place to shop, as well as a spot to sample free Coke products from around the world — including the illustrious Beverly that everyone loves to hate.
With the opening of the Creations Shop around the corner, Guests have been wondering what this highly anticipated shopping location will look like. Now, Imagineer Zach Riddley (@thezachriddley) has shared what the signage will look like, so Guests will be able to spot the shop when walking through EPCOT.
Zach notes that there will be five marquees guiding Guests into the store with the iconic lettering that we see throughout the Park, creating one cohesive design.
This morning we installed the very first of our five marquees that will welcome Guests to our new Creations Shop at EPCOT, opening on September 15!
These marquees leverage World Bold font, further tying all our signs and wayfinding into a consistent typography unique to EPCOT. Our design team wanted these portals to fully integrate into the architecture, creating a seamless composition that sweeps from the façade to the ground in one continuous motion, with fully embedded lighting and a signature yellow color.
Our team is excited to be putting these finishing touches on the shop, and the chance for all our Guests to see the final design next week!
The new Creations Shop comes weeks before the 50th anniversary, where we will see the Beacons of Light debut on Spaceship Earth, as well as Harmonious, the new nighttime spectacular, and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.
