Club Cool

When you’re hot or just in need of a cold drink, you can venture over to Future World and visit Club Cool.  Located near Innoventions West, this attraction offers self-serve Coca-Cola products and merchandise from the United States and abroad. Guests can consume complimentary samples of popular fountain-style drinks from other countries including Costa Rica, China, Mexico, Japan, Germany, and even Mozambique.  Note: If you’re looking for lunch or dinner to accompany your drinks, you will need to look elsewhere as Club Cool does not serve food.

Did You Know?

Club Cool was originally called Ice Station Cool and is fashioned after the World of Coca-Cola located in Atlanta, Georgia and Las Vegas, Nevada.  Ice Station Cool opened in June of 1998 and featured a polar exploration theme.  There was a Snow Cat, a tunnel with real snow, and “cave men” frozen in ice.  The original attraction closed in June 2005, but reopened as Club Cool by November of the same year.

The Plaque below reads:

“This early human ancestor frozen in his hunt for refreshment was discovered in the sub-arctic. The Coca-Cola coolologists named him “Thirst Man” for obvious reasons. The object found frozen just beyond his grasp leads us to ask: What came first: Man or refreshment?”

Coke sponsored themed locations seem to use the term “Cool” in their title.  “Club Cool” in Future World,  “Cool Station” in Future World near Test Track, and the “Coolpost” at the Outpost in The World Showcase.

Disney is as much a part of my childhood as hiking in the woods and riding my bike with my siblings. From watching The Disney Channel to taking semi-annual WDW vacations, my family was all about the mouse. Now, I'm a mom, teacher, and avid gamer who's excited to share this staple of my childhood with all of you. :)
