Along with everything else we’ve come to know and love from Epcot’s Future World, it appears that the classic Fountain of Nations will be closing permanently on September 8th, along with Pin Central. The final date of operation for Pin Central will be September 7th.
This is all part of the ongoing overhaul of Epcot and specifically “Project Gamma”, which includes a new entranceway layout with a fountain, greenscapes, and benches, a re-imagining of the center of Future World with a Beer Garden and permanent festival center, and the yet-to-be-announced 2.5 year refurbishment of Spaceship Earth. It is expected to be completed in 2022 in time for Epcot’s 40th anniversary.
MouseGear is set to close for an extensive remodeling before the end of the year. It will be moving to a temporary home over the winter during the refurbishment of the retail location. You still have a few months to take in its glorious late-90s interior, but unlike the rest, an official closing date for the refurbishment has yet to be announced.
Thankfully, Club Cool is set to return, eventually, incorporated into a new space in the near future. As a reminder, its current location is set to close on September 8th, with its final day of operation on September 7th.
