Work is still ongoing for the new flagship merchandise location in Epcot, Creations Shop. This new store is replacing Mouse Gears. Imagineer Zach Riddley shared some of the design process on his Instagram.
The design of the shop is abstract with big, bold shapes, surfaces, color, and details. Riddley said, “Our Imagineering team carefully selected binder colors and aggregates to create five unique terrazzo finishes. We’re also using golden yellow as our primary accent color throughout the space, inspired by one of the main colors of Mickey himself. This golden yellow terrazzo has a special tessellated pattern, reminiscent of Spaceship Earth. This integral pattern is created using 3D printing technology, in lieu of brass inlays used in more traditional terrazzo installations. This gives us greater precision to reflect shapes and motifs iconic to EPCOT.”
Riddley also shared that the color scheme will be applied to the façade soon. The color scheme is an entirely new palette for Epcot. Zach Riddley shared, “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.”
The Creations Shop and Club Cool will be reopening this summer. On the other end of the building a new set of restaurants will replace the former Electric Umbrella.
