Club Cool (formerly Ice Station Cool) is an attraction located in the Innoventions West Pavilion at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, that allows people to cool off and sample complimentary Coca-Cola soft drinks from around the world. It is similar to the World of Coca-Cola’s tasting area in Atlanta, Georgia, although the latter boasts a larger selection of products to taste (including both foreign and U.S. beverages). The gift shop at Club Cool also offers Coca-Cola merchandise for purchase. Ice Station Cool was the original name of the attraction, and was themed to a polar exploration, decorated with the pictured vehicle and cave men frozen in ice. It closed on June 6, 2005, and re-opened as Club Cool on November 14, 2005.
