Creations Shop and Club Cool painting - June 8 2021
Posted: Tuesday June 8, 2021 11:57am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

New exterior paint colors are currently being applied to the exterior of the former Mouse Gear building as the new Creations Shop continues to take shape at EPCOT.

The exterior paint has so far been applied to the corner nearest World Showcase, and is a simple beige color - quite a departure from the previous bold striped colors.

Imagineer Zach Riddley recently showed the color palette that WDI has chosen for the new building and commented, "We were searching for something neutral and warm to perfectly capture the light and architectural details of these renovated buildings while complementing the adjacent Spaceship Earth façade."

Serving as the flagship retail location at EPCOT and replacing Mouse Gear, Creations Shop will open this summer.

Pshaw, they didn't even use Highway Gothic font on that sign? FAIL!

As Epcot breaks from technology, progress and adds more IP it’s starting to feel like old Epcot at the same time. Kudos to them for that one. That’s midget of communicore seems to really have that old vibe.

I find it amazing how they don't have more of an online presence. I can't speak for the whole of the UK, but it'd be nice to buy some exclusive merch from the American Parks and not have to go to the extent of having to pay the obscene price someone's selling over on eBay. It's the bloody Starbucks "you are here" mugs all over again for me :( :( :( Oh, and the store looks nice...

Really? I listen to that music all the time!

Correct. It’s a location specific loop including a musical tribute to Tapestry of Nations!

New music sounds a bit more...bouncy? uptempo? To me it doesn't seem to be the entrance loop.

Agreed. Colour-changing gives them a nice tool. They can have a standard light if they choose, and then colour-change at special events, or during the beacons of magic etc. Rainbow-theme is set throughout the new Epcot as well with the colour-changing ribbons at the entrance, the flags, SSE lighting, and all of the new branding. It supports what they're implementing park-wide. Epcot isn't trying to be the modern tech-future showcase anymore (they let go of that dream when they got rid of SeaBase Alpha?). That flavour is still there, but overall it's something different. Thematically the colour-changing and rainbow motif works to support the new direction. (With all that being said, I struggle to see how Guardians fits...but...yeah...)

I went through yesterday and can't say that I even noticed any music because it was so loud in there. I've just consulted footage I took and I believe that the new Future World loop continues into the shop. It's difficult to tell over so much crowd noise, but it appears that it's the case.

So agree. They are overplayed. They’ve lost their novelty and I’m to the point that I cringe when I see them. When programmed creatively I guess they have their place, but it’s just become way to “there” to have any impact any more. looks like the signage at WorldWalMart.

I believe the lights will be on all evening. The Beacons have sporadic “shows”.
