This summer, quite a few things will be opening (or reopening) in Disney World!
Festival of the Lion King has already soft-opened and will officially reopen soon, Chef Mickey’s will start serving dinner again, Cape May Cafe will reopen, and Tusker House will reopen too. Over at EPCOT, a “revitalized” Club Cool will be also be opening in the park. When Disney first shared this news we had 1 BIG question on our minds — “will the notorious Beverly come back?!” And now we’ve got our answer!!
Although you can still get some tasty Coca-Cola beverages at the Coca-Cola Store and Rooftop Beverage Bar in Disney Springs, we were pretty sad when Club Cool at EPCOT closed due to the massive transformation going on there. Recently, though, we got word that a “revitalized” Club Cool was on its way!
Just when you think Disney World can’t get any busier…it does!
We started the year with a FULL year’s worth of announcements in January alone, but there was still LOTS of Disney news in February and March. April was certainly no exception, with the long-awaited reopening of the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, and many transformations happening around the parks! And we’ve only seen more news released since then. Without further ado, let’s take a look at 16 new things that have happened in Disney World recently or are set to happen soon!
Another week has gone by and we’ve gotten some MASSIVE updates that could impact your next Disney trip.
Have you been wondering when/if Club Cool would be coming back to EPCOT? Curious when face mask rules in Central Florida might change? Heard about the BIG Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group update yet? We’ve got ALL the Disney news you need to know right here!
EPCOT is pretty COVERED in construction right now.
There are a few projects around World Showcase, but MOST of those construction walls are up in Future World as the EPCOT Transformation continues. Disney just announced that Club Cool will be returning and Mouse Gear will be replaced by the new Creations Shop. Could work on these be starting soon?
You can still sample some great Coca-Cola products and grab ALL kinds of soda-themed merchandise over at the Coca-Cola store and rooftop beverage bar in Disney Springs. But, Club Cool — the spot where you used to be able to sip on some free Coca-Cola samples and more in EPCOT — closed some time ago as part of the EPCOT transformation. Well, if you were a fan of Club Cool, it’s time to GET EXCITED!!! Club Cool will be coming BACK to EPCOT soon!!
At the closed location, there used to be an orange-flavored Coca-Cola drink called Mezzo Mix that we — and a lot of other guests — just couldn’t get enough of! But then Club Cool went away to make room for EPCOT’s big transformation and we thought Mezzo Mix was gone forever.
There’s ALWAYS that one person in our group who tries something gross and then makes all of their companions try it! We all know that person: they take a bite or a sip, their face cringes, and then they pass it around to everyone in their group so THEY can suffer, too.
Let’s look back on a few snacks in Disney World that could totally gross people out (and some that have DEFINITELY grossed US out in the past), but also inspire them to take another bite or sip.
Once Club Cool shuts its doors as the area around it began the process of beautification, we were afraid that we would never again be able to sample sodas from around the world. Not every drink was our favorite, but there was something for everyone.
