Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley just gave us a sneak peek of the new entrance to reimagined Club Cool which will be returning to EPCOT this summer. Many Guests were disappointed when Club Cool closed back in 2019. It gave Guests a taste of different sodas from all around the world. Coca-Cola has been a part of the Park since 1955 when it first was served at Disneyland so many are excited for its returned. We’ve all tricked our family and friends into trying Beverly to get their reaction.
To quote Zach’s Instagram post. “Club Cool is nearly BACK at EPCOT, and in that process of becoming, I’m proud to share a sneak peek at the new façade and marquee from the park this morning! This new portal features some fun touches that tie to EPCOT and Coca-Cola’s design legacy. The Club Cool marquee uses our EPCOT World Bold font and looks amazing in bright Coke red! The façade was inspired by classic green-hued glass Coca-Cola bottles and features the iconic Coca-Cola logo fully integrated into this dynamic design. When complete, this will be a can’t-miss destination.”
The original Club Cool opened in 2005. It offered Coca-Cola merchandise for sale as well as free tastes of different International sodas. While the soda was free, you could not fill a bottle to take. Many Guest did try, and Cast Members would stop them. We expect that this will be the same policy when the new Club Cool opens.
Fun fact, you were only able to get Coke products on Walt Disney World property. So those that are Pepsi fans will have to sit this one out or bring your own. What’s your favorite flavor at Club Cool, and what do you hope makes a return? Let us know your thoughts and comments on our Facebook page.
