Fellow Mice Munchers, we’ve known for a while that Starbucks is coming to Walt Disney World, but we’ve never had a firm date or location. Until now!
Two locations at Walt Disney World will see the addition of Starbucks: the Main Street Bakery at the Magic Kingdom and Fountain View Espresso at Epcot.
The Main Street Bakery will close for a refurbishment in January 2013 and will reopen in May 2013 with Starbucks service.
At Epcot, Fountain View Ice Cream will go under a refurbishment from March 2013 to July 2013. When both locations open, the cast members will wear costumes that reflect their location. At the Main Street Bakery, the cast members will be wearing costumes that reflect an early 20th Century Main Street. At Fountain View, we can expect something that ties into futuristic themes.
Both locations are expected to follow the DCA model with a mix of Starbucks and Disney treats. So don’t assume that all your favorite treats will be gone for good. It is very likely that you’ll still find many of them available.
The Starbucks on Buena Vista Street at California Adventure has been a wild success. What do you think of Starbucks coming to Walt Disney World? Is this news sweet or does it leave a bitter taste in your mouth?
