EPCOT is full of exciting news as they prepare for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary! The Park will be brimming with celebrations in time for the 50th anniversary which kicks off on October 1 and lasts a full 18 months. EPCOT’s new nighttime spectacular, “Harmonious” is on the way. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure attraction will open to the public on October 1, with a soft opening for select Guests happening now. Space 220 will be opening later this month. And that’s just the beginning! Disney shared the news yesterday that the new flagship merchandise location, “Creations Shop” as well as the revitalized Club Cool will be opening next month. And now, we’re getting a first look at the EPCOT Creations Shop marquee from a Walt Disney Imagineer.
As shared via Zach Riddley on Instagram: This morning (September 8) we installed the very first of our five marquees that will welcome Guests to our new Creations Shop at EPCOT, opening on September 15! These marquees leverage World Bold font, further tying all our signs and wayfinding into consistent typography unique to EPCOT. Our design team wanted these portals to fully integrate into the architecture, creating a seamless composition that sweeps from the façade to the ground in one continuous motion, with fully embedded lighting and a signature yellow color. Our team is excited to be putting these finishing touches on the shop, and the chance for all our Guests to see the final design next week!”
While we haven’t seen much as far as the inside of the Creations Shop goes just yet, we do know a large Mickey mural called “Mouse in Motion” will be displayed on the wall. We have also learned special theme Park merchandise will be available including the “EPCOT Light & Color Collection”. Check out the new merchandise highlights as shared by Disney Park TikTok:
Anyone else planning to do a little (or maybe a LOT!) of shopping when the Creations Shop opens at EPCOT on September 15? We’ll see you there!
