Disney Springs has grown to be quite a destination in the past year, with world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment. On my last trip I spent quite a bit of time wandering the new sections, and one of my favorite places was the first place we went was the Coca-Cola Store. Coca-Cola has been a Disney partner since 1942, and this new store is a showpiece for the company.
This beautiful new three level building is situated in the Town Center neighborhood of Disney Springs, just across the way from the Planet Hollywood Observatory. Themed as a former Coca-Cola bottling plant (a trend in Disney Springs) it's been refitted into a sleek shopping port for all things Coke. Walking into the building guests will notice a beautifully bubbly 30 foot wide chandelier made from blown glass, recycled from soda bottles.
The bubbles float overhead above a menagerie of animals created from recycled Coke Cans, and trendy fashion accessories in the same motifs. In this store you'll find tons and tons of Coke merchandise. The first and second floors are home to all the Coca-Cola merchandise you can dream of - from trendy art bottles to classic Coca-Cola clothing, from walls of plush Coca-Cola Bears to a dazzling array of Coke Christmas goodies. There's a little something to be found here for the Coca-Cola lover in all of us.
However, it's up on the third floor that the heart of the Coca-Cola Company is really put on display. The entire third floor is dedicated to a Roof-top Bar. As soon as you step off of the elevator you can appreciate the good vibe of this relaxed setting, living walls bring greenery to the modern setting full of white of seating, glass walls and counters. The panoramic views from the roof-top bar are spectacular and will only get better once Disney Springs is no longer under construction.
My son and I ordered the Coke Float sampler, an array of sodas made by the Coca-cola Company poured over soft serve vanilla ice cream. There were 8 floats in the sampler to try for a cost of $10. In addition to the sampler of floats that we enjoyed, the counter service bar also offers a sampler of Coke products from around the world, or regular portions of the beverages. My son really enjoyed the Red Cream Soda and went back later in the day to get another.
After 3pm the Coke Bar serves alcoholic drink options as well, with a variety of Coke based cocktails. I will absolutely be going back after 3 on my next trip to give some of them a try.
Overall my son and I really enjoyed the music and the atmosphere up on the roof. The view was beautiful and there was a very relaxed feeling was comfortable. To get to the bar you can either walk up the ramp on the outside of the building, or just take the elevator. It's a nice walk around the building, but better to do coming down than going up.
