PHOTOS: Crews Actively Work Atop Scaffolding on New Creations Shop and Club Cool Locations at EPCOT

Despite the inclement weather in the Orlando area this weekend, construction is carrying on at EPCOT, where MouseGear is becoming “Creations Shop”, Club Cool is returning, and more projects are coming to fruition in the center of the park. We took some of these photos a few days ago, prior to a thunderstorm rolling through the area.

The upcoming store will have a bold, sleek design that creates a perfect showcase for the rich variety of items guests will find as part of the EPCOT experience.

At the south end of Creations Shop, a new popcorn stand is also under construction. What seems to be a pathway from the main building has now been lined with curbing.

Here we see the shape of the kiosk carved out in the ground and some additional base framework installed, including a new curb lining the site as well.
