If you have planned a free day on your next Disney vacation, a time when you don;t have park tickets, then visiting Disney Springs has got to be on your agenda. And a brand new Must See at the Springs is the Coca-Cola Store located in the Town Center area. With so many other shops to see, why stop in?
For starters, the building is really cool to look at; this is definitely not a place you will pass in your every day goings on. The store was modeled after a 1920s Coca Cola bottling plant, with a lovely brick exterior that gives a nod to the brand’s heritage. The glass-accented entry pays tribute to the iconic Coca-Cola bottle. The company is blending modern products with nostalgia.
When you enter the store, notice the 30-ft.-wide blown-glass chandelier crafted from repurposed Coca Cola bottles. This is one example of how the unique retail experience was designed with the environment in mind. I just thought the bubble-look was cool.
The store has two solid floors of merchandise. Now, some people won’t be into shopping here at all, because there are no Disney characters to be seen. But having been a teenager in the 80s, when Coke shirts and watches were all the rage, I enjoyed seeing the Coke name on products again. I never see Coca Cola items in my outside-Disney life.
And here they are in abundance…
Many Disney Springs shoppers are looking for souvenirs. While the Coca Cola brand is not exactly my thing for purchases, it sure was interesting to look around, because there are potential take-home souvenirs every which way you turn.
Offering a broad assortment of merchandise celebrating the Coca-Cola brand, they also sell a line of sustainable fashion apparel and other handmade items crafted from recycled materials showcased with the 5by20 collection, which is various items created by women artisans from around the world.
On the second floor, you may spot a seven-foot tall bear. That’s the Coca-Cola Polar Bear. He gives hugs and high fives. It’s free to have your picture taken with him using your camera. Your background will just be plain like these.
Now Cast Members work their Disney magic and add fun polar backgrounds. When you look at the photos at the cash register, the computer says, “Please refrain from taking personal photos. Thank you.” So it’s discouraged you take your own pictures with the added background.
If you have Disney’s Photo Pass, just scan your MagicBand, and the photos will be downloaded for free. We have PhotoPass for free this year because we have annual passes, so whoop whoop, we got our pictures for free. Even my teens, who complain about posing for pictures in general, thought the bear photos were fun.
There is a glass enclosed walkway around the building, and the higher you go, the more you can see of Disney Springs.
Head to the roof to enjoy an ice-cold Coke, plus you can try a variety of brands from around the world, such as Beverly from Italy and Thums Up from India.
They offer frozen beverages and more than 100 drink choices via Coca Cola Freestyle at the exclusive rooftop beverage bar, which overlooks Disney Springs. This is a nice place to catch the breeze and cool yourself down with a Coke.
The prices are not all that crazy, considering it’s a vacation spot.
