In an effort to unify all of the new store designs at EPCOT and create a smooth, streamlined merchandise experience for guests, some of the stores located near Spaceship Earth will be closing in the coming days.
Fans of the nostalgia-laced Gateway Gifts shop at the entrance to EPCOT should be informed that the store will be closing on January 13th for refurbishment. The store is set to reopen on January 19th with the addition of a package pick-up service. Directly across, the new Camera Center and Pin Traders store recently reopened with a new look.
Over at the outside of the park, on the west side of the main entrance, the Gift Stop store and package pick-up location will be closing on January 18th. The Gift Stop cart will remain open.
