    So happy to see evidence of the upcoming Food and Wine. I will be partaking in some food and libations come next month! And yay for being able to have pumpkin spiced lattes while at EPCOT. Thanks for the update—-as always. A vital part of MiceChat!

  • LoveStallion

    Great update. I follow this stuff as if I am an EPCOT regular and I’ve only been there once, 14 years ago. I hope to go back more sooner than later.

    Nice to get the park during such a quiet spell. I really love Disney parks when they are quiet, not just because of the lack of lines, but because it really allows one to take in the atmosphere and relax.

    Love the dusk shot, too. Thanks for that.

    I like that spot for a Starbucks and just about any modern decor would work. But why does this look like some generic hotel lobby Starbucks? This is Disney, couldn’t they take it up a notch? I’m fine with it, doesn’t look bad, but they sure didn’t try to wow. Looks like the food court at the Contemporary Hotel.

    • Kimura

      I agree. This looks like something you’d see at the Contemporary. There was so much more potential for this Epcot Starbucks.

  • Kimura

    Anyone know if the ice cream that was previously served at the new Starbucks location has been relocated?

  • RandySavage

    I hate that the Starbucks Logo and name are so largely and proudly displayed on the exterior. A great theme park should be about taking the visitor someplace out-of-the-norm, someplace extraordinary. What could be more ordinary and everyday than a Starbucks. Damn shame.

      I’m not sure that matters in this particular spot. It is Innoventions after all, which is one big advertisement.

  • SpectroMan

    Thanks Cory! LOVE the low crowds; coming next week and I surely hope it stays this way!!

    I agree with Dusty; the new Starbucks is so very spartan, it could be in any Hilton or Marriott lobby in anywhere, USA. But, I’m hoping maybe it looks a little bit more polished in person.

    I’m hoping Disney will open a 5th park called Starbucks World. There just can’t be enough overpriced coffee spoiled by overly sweet syrups in WDW.
    Thank god Disney Springs gets 2 of these wonderful locations. Together with a Apple store, a Best Buy and a lovely themed Wal-Mart you can just forget you are in WDW.
    I wish we would see some improvements attraction wise but I guess that is not where the money is made.

  • DobbysCloset

    In Portland, Oregon there is a Starbucks on every corner but none of them look like that. It looks like it will handle traffic flow well but lacks complete creativity in decor. Very strange.

    Dobby is jealous of Food & Wine visitors. Some day he, too, will whine for food at WDW. Breaking a promise to a chihuahua is dangerous!

    • billyjobobb

      not on every corner. but there’s what? 8 within a couple blocks of pioneer square?

  • billyjobobb

    simple question.

    Why can’t starbucks just add ears to their logo. It would be so simple, and such a great touch!

    • QPerth

      Such a great suggestion for this location, or ears made from Epcot (old style and far better than now) flower logo ears?! Brilliant!

  • Orlando71

    i like Starbucks and im glad they build them in the parks but i think disney missed a great opportunity in developing their own coffee. They could have called it mickey’s brew or something. Just the smell of freshly brewn coffee would entice anyone on mainstreet. They would have made a killing. Anyway, great update and its nice to see Fountain view refreshed.
