Anyway, I think of that moment each time I enter Club Cool located between the Character Spot and the Fountain of Nations. Inside Club Cool lies what I believe is a Soda Fountain of Nations. Guests have the opportunity to experience the same type of moment that leads to the realization that though we are all different, we are all the same in many ways. We can celebrate those differences, recognizing them for what they are. Even if that means making gaging noises after trying the flavor from Italy.
For those people who seem to sit momentarily in shock each time I list something Disney provides either very inexpensively or even for free, here is your chance to gaze again with disbelief. Though in true Disney form, Club Cool is another gift shop of sorts, the fountain drinks are FREE to sample. Yes – Free!
Take a mini-Coke cup and sample flavors such as:
Krest Giner Ale (Mozambique)
Fanta Kolita (Costa Rica)
Vegeta Beta (Japan)
Smart Watermelon (China)
Kinley Lemon (Israel)
Lift Apple (Mexico)
Mezzo Mix (Germany)
It's a real World Showcase of flavor that sets the tone for the transition from Future World to the World Showcase itself. It's an especially welcome stop during the hot summer months like August. Not only do the samples provide a taste of refreshment, but the cool air blasting from the AC serves to sooth your sanity - which has been busy fighting the heat as much as the crowds.
So, the next time you pass by Innovations and the Fountain of Nations, stop in to taste the a few national flavors. What is your favorite?
