Club Cool Closing? (FALSE RUMOR)

i'd be down with this.

also: my ex gf was the only person i ever saw that tasted beverly and, not only didn't spit it up, but actually liked it. of course, she was the worst human being ever, so maybe there's some kind of correlation!

...the Beverly is DELICIOUS!! It tastes like a soda version of Campari liquor ...which is ...DELICIOUS!!

I'll miss you, Lift Apple, Smart Watermelon, Kinley Lemon, and Mezzo Mix, from least to greatest...
 
I dunno what to think about this...

In my case, a visit to EPCOT is not complete without a visit to Club Cool. Not to try out the different drinks, but JUST to get the Japan drink, VegitaBeta. It's the "EPCOT Drink" to me, because it appears to be the only place you can get it easily. I'd be greatly disappointed if it went away, as it would feel like part of the EPCOT I know would be missing.

That said, I realize my point of view is extremely biased, and Disney would be silly to keep this going for much longer. They're giving drinks away for free after all! And Ghirardelli is my favorite chocolate place... EVER, so it would be a worthy replacement. Even though they already have one in Downtown Disney not to far away.

I think overall it's an improvement for the park. But I will be very sad if this is true... :(

I can see it going away, I'm kind of surprised it's been there for so long. I too will miss getting my favorite drink, fanta strawberry, and filling up my empty water bottles with it. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.

I enjoyed last Beverly of this trip earlier today. I hope I can have another when I return in April.

Club Cool is usually a once per trip visit/walk through. I'd miss it, but I don't think it's unreasonable to have the space be better used.

I think you missed the point. None of these sodas are served anywhere in the United States. Hence, the uniqueness. If you can buy any of these at WalMart, I'd be very impressed.

Also, the sodas are free. At WDW, this is also very unique ;)
not 100% true. Mezzo is available in some grocery stores in the US (its slowly gaining its well deserved popularity outside of just the german market)

Oh wait I just realized another option besides getting Mezzo Mix at Club Cool.
ORANGE COKE AT THE COKE FREESTYLE MACHINES IN UNIVERSAL!
(and even in my hometown)

I have never been in a Ghirardelli's that doesn't hand out chocolate square samples but this would be a massive amount of people and chocolate to give out in a park. The venue doesn't exactly lend itself nicely either to selling bags of chocolate that would melt all day long in the bag.
There is a Ghirardelli in DCA and they were handing out free samples. I was unable to walk through the door without getting at least two free pieces each time (I may have been circling the building ;)).
The store was busy, but even with a 50% sale on all the bags of chocolate, no one was buying it :oops:
I mean... who wouldn't want to carry a 5 lb. bag of melted chocolate around all day :rolleyes:

I'm also certain you can find Fanta in almost any major grocery store here in the States and a handful of major fast food chains. I always wondered why they thought this soda was unique to Costa Rica.

You can't even find Beverly in Italy. I tried. I even asked several Italians, and most of them had never heard of it!

The Lift Apple is available at our grocery store in the international section.

Freestyle machines are pretty much the standard here all over Florida. However..sad to say that Orange Coke is hardly the same as Mezzo (Mezzo is more than just orange)

late to the conversation as usual lol....my family and I loved club cool when we first went to WDW in april of 2010! We had so much fun trying all the different flavors and taking a break from the hot sun for a few minutes. It was so much fun that when we made our second trip in april of 2012, it was on our list and we couldn't miss it. Were coming back to WDW next april and we really hope its still there. I can understand why they would turn it into something else, as the profits may not be there and like others have said, the novelty has gone (for returning guests that is)....hopefully we can see it one last time next spring to grab some pictures of the place
