Hey there, Disney vacationers! Have you noticed the construction walls on Grand Avenue at Hollywood Studios? Wondering what’s happening? Well, I got the latest on the Grand Avenue project. It’s shaping up to be a cool new spot, and I’m here to give you the scoop on what’s new and exciting.

Nestled at the bustling intersection of Grand Avenue and the Muppets Grand Park area, something fresh and intriguing has popped up. The side of a building there has recently been jazzed up with some eye-catching lettering that reads “Ice Cold Hydraulics,” along with a nod to its Los Angeles, California location. This new addition has been turning heads, especially since the crews just finished painting the lettering on the side of the building.

Now, let’s zoom in on a little detail that’s sparking conversations. The “C” in the sign? It’s got a vibe that’s unmistakably reminiscent of the iconic Coca-Cola font. This little clue has me thinking (and maybe you’re on the same wavelength) that this spot is gearing up to be a Coke refreshment stand. But, just any Coke, but frozen Coke stand. Picture this: a frozen coke stand that brings a chill and refreshing twist to Grand Avenue.

This speculation isn’t just out of thin air. Combining the choice of words and lettering reminds me a lot of the Cool Wash refreshment standover by Test Track in EPCOT that recently made a comeback. Additionally, the choice of the word “hydraulics” in the sign could be a playful hint at the mechanics of frozen coke machines—think about the way the handle works to pour you that perfect icy drink.

So, what does this mean for us? Well, if you’re anything like me and have a soft spot for sipping on a frozen Coke on a hot Florida day, you’re in for a treat! And, this Grand Avenue project is about to become your next favorite destination. It’s all about those little details and the creative ways places like this add a dash of fun to our experiences.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Grand Avenue project. It’s clear that this spot is not just about the buildings and streets; it’s about creating moments and memories, one “Ice Cold Hydraulics” at a time. Whether you’re a local or just passing through, this is one project that promises to bring a bit of cool to those hot Disney days.
