Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- My son has loved the coke refreshment station in Epcot in the past. The place where you try samples of coke from other countries. Is it still there? He is excited to go again, and I can not find it listed anywhere.

The place you're referring to is called Club Cool. This is one of my most favorite hidden gems in all of Walt Disney World.
Cool is in Epcot, tucked away in a little corner near the main Future
World Fountain on the Innoventions West side. From the outside this
looks like a little gift shop sponsored by the Coca-Cola Company,
featuring Coke-themed merchandise. Club Cool is a shop, but it is so
Inside there are about 10 stations that each offer 8
free fountain sodas. There are nearby dixie cup dispensers. You can
help yourself as many times as you want, drinking as much free soda as
you want. There is one catch though, none of the soda is American.
What's offered here is Vegita Beta from Japan, Fanta from Costa Rica,
Mezzo Mix from Germany, Lift from Mexico, and several others. These are
very popular Coca-Cola Company brands in these countries, but they
taste more than a little foreign to most American palates.
On our last trip to WDW, my girls spent nearly an hour tasting,
mixing, comparing notes about, and yes, spitting out (into the
well-placed trash cans) the various soda flavors. I personally found
one of the sodas revolting, most tolerable, and two delicious. I'll let
you figure out which was which :-)
Oh, and if you want a good-old-American Coke, they sell those by the bottle at Club Cool for about $2.50.
