Mmmm! Coca-cola! Yay! Dis­ney! “Dis­ney” and “Coke” are prob­a­bly two of my fa­vorite words. When you com­bine then, they get even bet­ter. I love Coke to the point that I will only drink wa­ter when I’m some­where that doesn’t serve Coke!

Dis­ney Springs has had so many new stores open in re­cent years—it may be hard to keep track of all of them. I will do you a fa­vor and tell you about one of my fa­vorites: The Coca-cola Store at Dis­ney Springs.

I have been in Coke stores in tourist des­ti­na­tions be­fore, and have al­ways left feel­ing a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed. I never re­ally go in ex­pect­ing to find any­thing spe­cific for my­self, but the fact that I am a big Coke fan and still couldn’t find any­thing sort of amazed me. But not here!

Coke cups, bot­tles, drink­ing glasses, balls… Any pos­si­ble thing that you could want is in here—from the wall of hats, to the racks and racks of ap­parel. Oddly enough, I bought a Coca-cola wa­ter bot­tle. I do feel a lit­tle funny in­side ev­ery time I put my ice wa­ter in it, but it al­ways re­minds of a lit­tle Dis­ney each time, as well.

A neat thing about some of the col­lectibles that are avail­able in the new store is that var­i­ous items are made from re­cy­cled Coke cans and prod­ucts. Be sure to stop in and check out some of these amaz­ing items, and pos­si­bly help our en­vi­ron­ment a lit­tle along the way!

One HUGE fea­ture that’s set this Coca-cola store apart from the oth­ers I’ve vis­ited is the rooftop deck. Be­ing on top, you can see the Planet Hol­ly­wood Ob­ser­va­tory and Char­ac­ters in Flight. It can be quite the walk up to the rooftop deck, with lots of twists and turns, but ab­so­lutely worth the trek. Be sure to head up there at night for the best view and ex­pe­ri­ence. Be warned though, the mu­sic can be a lit­tle loud!

Also, while you are on the rooftop deck, be sure to check out the Tastes of the World taste test chal­lenge and get ready to ex­pe­ri­ence a wide va­ri­ety of fla­vors. I per­son­ally have not been brave enough to try all of the dif­fer­ent fla­vors, but those who have seem to en­joy them­selves very much. Think of Club Cool in Ep­cot, but on a much broader, tastier scale. You can even try a sam­ple tray of var­i­ous Coke floats.

The Coca-cola Store at Dis­ney Springs is def­i­nitely worth a stop dur­ing your next WDW va­ca­tion. Find your­self a lit­tle Coke sou­venir or two. Don’t for­get to make the jour­ney up to the rooftop to try some wacky Coke fla­vors or sim­ply en­joy an ice cold Coca-cola while look­ing over all of Dis­ney Springs!
