If you have some shopping to do at EPCOT, you need to know one of the stores is temporarily closing.

Oh, the shopping choices at EPCOT. Each country in the World Showcase has a plethora of merchandise pertaining to that country. There are also several gift shops in Future World.

Pin Traders – Camera Center is one of those shops in Future World where you can find pins, apparel, media gifts, and more. It is located underneath SpaceShip Earth!

Unfortunately, Pin Traders will be temporarily closing. Beginning Monday, April 19 (that’s tomorrow!), you will have to look elsewhere for your merchandise. But don’t worry, it will reopen in just a couple weeks on Friday, May 7.

EPCOT’s plans for more shops

While we are unsure why the store is temporarily closing, we do know EPCOT has a lot of plans for gift shops.

Creations Shop will be taking over Mouse Gears this summer. Made to feel like you are in nature while being indoors, the huge glass walls will allow plenty of sunlight to come in!

This is not simply a shop to purchase merchandise, but the goal is to also allow Guests to experience “the park’s vision and tradition.” Guests will enjoy great merchandise that will continue their creative journey at home to extend the magic of EPCOT.

Club Cools will be excited to hear it’s coming back! You can read more about these openings HERE.

  1. One thing Disney is NOT lacking is places to shop. It makes sense that they are making some changes to make things hopefully more aesthetically pleasing. Thanks for the update! -Andrea
