History buffs like myself may be interested in learning that Disney’s corporate relationship with Coca-Cola started in 1942! It was back when Walt Disney first appeared on the Coca-Cola radio program “The Pause That Refreshes on the Air.” In fact, back in 1950, Disney’s television special, “One Hour in Wonderland,” was sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company!
Later when Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955, the Coca-Cola company helped sponsor Refreshment Corner on Main Street U.S.A. A few years later, on October 1, 1971, Magic Kingdom Park opened at Walt Disney World Resort and The Coca-Cola Company began its sponsorship of Refreshment Corner (now called Casey’s Corner) on Main Street U.S.A. Over the last 66 years, this relationship has grown at Disney Parks around the world—with everything from hosted locations to groundbreaking products that elevate the guest experience.
If you’re eager to try some of Coca-Cola’s global flavors, be sure to keep an eye out for the re-opening of Club Cool at EPCOT – coming soon! The newly reimagined space will include seven global flavors of Coca-Cola for guests to try—including the fan-favorite Beverly!
