I’ve visited the Coca-Cola Store at Disney Springs a handful of times since it opened just over a year ago (on July 2, 2016, to be precise). I’ve gone to gawk at the treasure trove of Coca-Cola merchandise sprawled across two floors in the shop – clothing, accessories, home decor, kitchenwares, polar bear gear – and, speaking of polar bears… I may have popped in just for photo shoots a couple times with a furry friend who resides on the second floor – don’t judge.
It took me long enough, but I finally made my way to the third floor recently to check out the open-air rooftop bar. This time around, I had one very specific mission in mind… I had set my sights on a Combo Tray. The Combo Tray offers 16 assorted sparkling and still beverages from around the world, along with eight floats, for a grand total of three full trays – priced at $15.00.
Of course, if you’re not feeling particularly gluttonous, you don’t necessarily have to go whole hog. I’ll admit that I did not realize just what I was getting into with my order! I was expecting little shot glasses similar to the self-serve cups you find at Epcot’s Club Cool. Not quite the case, and this was reiterated by the number of people who stopped to ask me what I had ordered. My suggestion… if you’re going to place this order, make sure that your friends or family are willing to chip in and help with conquering it. I was in this as a solo mission. Ambitious, and perhaps a bit foolish, but I was eager to try! Let’s take a peek at what I got myself into…
Take note – this is only TWO of the trays! Stay tuned for the floats…
In my twenties, I went to parties that looked something like this – but not quite as colorful, or as sweet. (Which reminds me – the rooftop bar does have alcohol-infused beverage options on the menu as well!) On a hot day, you’ll be racing against the sun to down these drinks before they lose their cool… especially the floats, which contain a scoop of vanilla ice cream in each cup. Though the bar is open-air, there is a roof with fans hanging from it, but don’t kid yourself – this will do little to preserve your beverages at the peak of summertime.
But I digress… let’s get back to those drinks! The Combo Tray merges the International Tray (separately priced at $8.50) and the Float Tray (separately priced at $10.00). The two trays that make up the International Tray feature sixteen beverages. Each cup is placed on a numbered space that coordinates with a tiny “menu”, explaining what each drink is and where it is from.

The Coca-Cola Store is a lot like Club Cool maximized – but it’s got its own special flair that makes it worthy of a visit. In addition to the expanded merchandise and absolutely rockin’ views, you’ll enjoy a larger variety of International beverages and even more drink options beyond that. Aside from the trays, you can choose from cocktails, mocktails, juices, smoothies, Icees, and the Freestyle experience – which includes five free refills within an hour of purchase from 100+ beverage options.
This is the third Coca-Cola Store in the United States (along with Las Vegas and Atlanta). For more information, visit https://www.disneysprings.com/shops/coca-cola-store/.
