It’s the end of an era for Club Cool.
Love it or hate it, we’ve all made memories on those sticky floors, coated with sugary sodas from around the world, from your first sip of Beverly, to the free birthday Icees. Today marks the final day for the all-you-can-drink soda fountain ahead of its demolition to make way for Epcot’s new Festival Center and a portion of one of the new neighborhood concepts that will comprise the new Epcot: World Celebration. Walls will be going up around this location and its surroundings starting tomorrow night, so if you want to get your last sips of (free) Beverly, you still have a few hours to do that.
If you can’t make your way out to Club Cool, though, there’s no need to worry. We understand Epcot nostalgia deeply and on a personal level here at WDWNT, and we want you all to experience it with us. You can take one final tour of Club Cool in the video below:
If a more immersive experience is what you’d like, check out our 360 video from the front of Club Cool.
During initial closure announcements, Disney did allude to having Club Cool in their “future plans” for the park, but they haven’t elaborated further on the topic, nor was any reference or successor to Club Cool named during the recent Epcot announcements at the D23 Expo 2019. For now, we’ll just have to live with the memories.
Have a Cool day!
