Starbucks To Open In WDW/DL!


Now, it's not because I love Starbucks that much, but I hate the coffee being served at WDW! Horrible, instant Nescafe! So I welcome news that Startbucks will open 6 stores in Disney's North America theme parks!

The first will open this summer at Disneyland California Adventure in Anaheim. The other locations will be at the nearby Disneyland Park and at the parks in Orlando, Fla. – Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot. The companies are still finalizing when the remaining stores will open.
Still, this is Disney, and Starbucks will adapt to the surroundings

At Disneyland California, for example, the store will be called the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Cafe, after the characters in the Three Little Pigs. The Starbucks logo will not be posted outside, although the name will be printed vertically on posts on either side of the entry way.

The cafe will be located near the park entrance, which is designed to conjure an idealized version of a Los Angeles neighborhood where the animator Walt Disney lived during the 1920s and 1930s. The inside of the cafe will be decorated with Spanish tiles, stained glass and dark wood paneling to fit that theme.

Baristas will wear aprons that Disney says will match the decor, rather than the forest green aprons employees wear at other Starbucks. The cups will also be co-branded. In addition to the full Starbucks menu, the coffee chain said its stores may offer a "Mickey Mouse cookie or two."
If they start selling Starbucks merchandise that have Disney themes, I'm buying!

Agreed, this is exciting! We need iced coffee pick-me-ups in the afternoons and Starbucks, while pricey, is a great way to do it! Glad that Disney isn't making them obvious Starbucks either. Pretty fun!
