Starbucks is coming to the Disneyland and Walt Disney World theme parks
Written by Robert Niles
Disney announced today that it's closed its deal with Starbucks to bring the popular coffee shops into the Disney theme parks.Tweet
Don't freak out about seeing your cookie-cutter, neighborhood Starbucks on Main Street USA just yet, though. Disney says that the 'Bucks locations will be themed to their settings, with the first one coming to the new Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure, which opens June 15.
So, essentially, this is a vendor swap, with Starbucks training, menu, and products replacing current coffee products in select locations in the six U.S. Disney theme parks. The Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Cafe location that will be the first Starbucks in California Adventure also will sell additional Disney food items, so it's more like a Disney restaurant that sells Starbucks than a straight-up Starbucks location. And it's not like Disney hasn't had branded coffee houses in its parks before.
All that said, do you like this move, or not? Are you happy with Disney's current coffee, or would you rather see some other brand of coffee (Seattle's Best, Peet's, Peaberry, etc.) come into the parks?
