Club Cool is arguably a well recognized staple of Walt Disney World’s Epcot. It is currently in danger of being removed along with the rest of Innoventions West. We want to keep our beloved place where we meet for international Coca Cola soft beverage tastings.

In the year 1982, Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Center opened. It was the 3rd Disney Park to be built, and the 1st to ever stray away from the Magic Kingdom style of park. Located in the center of the park’s Future World section were 2 crescent shaped buildings. They were strategically placed behind Spaceship Earth in order to encourage guests to walk through these buildings. The 2 joined together to form CommuniCore. The buildings were used to bring in all of EPCOT’s sponsors under one roof. In 1994, CommuniCore was redesigned as Innoventions, a similar concept to the original CommuniCore. In 1998, the Coca-Cola sponsored Ice Station Cool opened in the western building. Ice Station Cool intended to refresh the parkgoers of Epcot by offering Coca-Cola soft drinks from around the world. The facility also sold Coca-Cola merchandise. In 2005, Ice Station Cool became Club Cool. Club Cool provided all the amenities of its predecessor with a new look to it. The following years saw a decline in the amount of exhibits Innoventions held. In 2015, Innoventions West closed its doors for a major overhaul. This left only Club Cool, the Fountain View Starbucks, and the Epcot Character Spot open in the western building.

In 2019, Disney began a major overhaul of Epcot known as Project Gamma. In early March 2019, permits were filed with Orange County for the demolition of Innoventions West. Walt Disney World News Today reported that the remaining tenants of Innoventions West would soon be closing permanently, including Club Cool. Club Cool has given parkgoers fond memories and refreshments for over 20 years now. We lament the fact that this staple of Epcot may now be lost to the demolition of one building.

We are hoping that Disney will consider moving Club Cool to a new location within Epcot. Memories can still be made for years to come even at a different location within the park. We hope Coca-Cola can assist in this as the sponsor of Club Cool. The cooperation of the 2 companies is necessary in the relocation of Club Cool. We hope that future generations can still enjoy international Coca-Cola products in Epcot. Memories are something we all cherish- and Club Cool is just one place within Walt Disney World where memories are made.
