The first two Starbucks locations in Walt Disney World’s theme parks will open next summer, one at Magic Kingdom and one at Epcot. These two locations will be the first at Disney World parks following the one at Disney California Adventure, which opened this summer.
At the Magic Kingdom, on Main Street USA, the Main Street Bakery will close in January 2013 and reopen as a Starbucks location a few months later, in early summer. At Epcot, the Fountain View will close in March 2013 and reopen as a Starbucks location midsummer.
Both locations will fit the theme of their surrounding areas. At the Magic Kingdom Park, cast members will wear a outfit consistent with the early 20th century look and feel of Main Street, U.S.A. At Future World in Epcot, the new Starbucks location and cast member costumes will be designed to match the park’s futuristic theme. Each Starbucks location will be fully functional, including all the signature beverages, a variety of baked goods, and sandwiches, and they’ll accept Starbucks gift cards.
Update (11/13/12): In response to guests feedback about the changes coming to the Main Street Bakery, The Disney Parks Blog clarified in an update to exactly how Starbucks will be integrated to the Main Street Bakery when it reopens next Summer.
Here’s some additional information about our Walt Disney World Resort Starbucks locations. The Main Street Bakery will keep its name and theming when it reopens in early summer. It’ll also continue to serve Disney favorites like cookies, brownies and seasonal cupcakes, in addition to Starbucks signature beverages and other items. And for those of you who asked in comments, the cinnamon rolls are available at Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland, and the ice cream sandwiches are available at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, U.S.A.
More Starbucks locations are coming to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland park soon so stay tuned.
