If you’re as excited/anxious as we are about the changes coming to Epcot in the approaching years (click here to read about ’em!), we’ve got some exciting/anxiety producing news for you: things in Future World, they are a-changin’.
Today on a walk through the Park, we discovered that construction walls, fencing, and planters have been erected around strategic locations in Future World where World Celebration will eventually be built. There are walls around Fountain View and the Fountain of Nations — although you can still take a peek at the (drained and dry) Fountain as of this afternoon.
In addition to the Fountain of Nations and Fountain View, the Character Spot has been shuttered as well. At present, Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy are located together in Innoventions West — but there’s no FastPass available for this meet-and-greet location at this time, so that’s a bit of a bummer. Sadness, Joy, and Baymax are still meeting in their area at present.
And finally, fans of free international Coke products take note: Club Cool has closed. Disney has intimated that a Club Cool replacement will eventually be part of Epcot in the future, but details have yet to be released about this.
In the meantime, you’ll have to daydream about the “future of Club Cool” and Epcot in general. Learn more about the changes coming to Future World in our D23 Expo coverage here.
