Walt Disney World Resort More Walt Disney World Resort Stories

Starbucks Coming to Disney Parks

Thomas Smith

by , Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

Today, we’re excited to officially announce plans to bring your favorite Starbucks drinks and food items to all of our theme parks at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.

In June, the first of six planned Starbucks locations is scheduled to open at Disney California Adventure park. And more locations are planned at Disneyland park and Walt Disney World Resort (Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom).

The Starbucks locations inside our parks will be designed to fit the theme of their surroundings. At Disney California Adventure park, Starbucks will be located in the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café on Buena Vista Street, a place that transports guests to 1920s Los Angeles, when Walt Disney arrived in California and a cup of coffee was the perfect way to jumpstart a busy day. The store’s location plays off the Spanish/Mexican architecture of the period, and baristas will wear 1920s-inspired attire.

The café will serve Starbucks items, including coffee and espresso beverages, Frappuccino® blended beverages, and signature breakfast sandwiches and pastries. Guests also will have their choice of Disney favorites, including signature sandwiches and other items, as well as delicious desserts and sweet treats.

Let us know what you’ll be ordering in the comments.

  • So excited to order my… Venti, 2-Pump Peppermint, Nonfat, 2 equal Starbucks Doubleshot at the parks. This is such great news!

  • This makes me SO happy!

  • Will these locations accept the Starbucks gift card?

    • I’ll need to check on this, Alexander. But most likely yes.

  • Yummy! I will be ordering a caramel macchiato!

  • Yay!!!! Can’t wait! Two of my favorite things together at last!

  • 2 questions! When will they be available in WDW? We will be there the last week of august and would love a starbucks fix! Also will you be able to use the dining plan snack credit for any of the items? Cant wait!

  • Thomas,

    When you say “the first of six planned Starbucks locations is scheduled to open at Disney California Adventure park” and “more locations are planned…” does this mean six locations only at DCA and then more planned on top of that? Or six total, the first being at DCA, and “more” planned for other parks (but still capped at six?)

    Is it correct to assume six total, one at each individual American park?

    Trying to get my facts straight.

    • Hi Adam, great question. There will be a total of six locations with the other stores opening inside our Disney properties in California and Florida.

  • I still like the Nescafe coffee!

  • Where’s the one in Epcot going to go? That’s the most important information and it’s missing from this post.

    • Hi Robert, as soon as we have a location confirmed we’ll share here. Thanks.

  • This is fantastic news! I fully supporting partnering with brands that have strong histories and commitment to excellence, and Starbucks definitely fits the bill. I’m especially pleased to hear that they all be fully themed in each theme park environment (much like the former McDs locations were).

    This is a massive upgrade in coffee quality from the current offering that can be found resort-wide in WDW (I’m assuming it’s also sold in DL, although I didn’t drink much coffee while I was there).

  • I can’t wait to enjoy a Triple Grande Skinny Mocha!

  • My husband will be so happy to hear this!

  • And the coffee gods shined down on Disneyland and Walt Disney World…. 🙂

  • Will they participate in Walt Disney World’s dining/snack plan or are they a “cash only” location?

  • There’s already a Starbucks at a Disney resort. A few years ago a Starbucks opened inside Disney Village at Disneyland Paris.

  • For my wife: One tall, 4 pump, no water, chai tea latte.
    For my two girls: 2 vanilla steamers.
    For me: One trenta, unsweet, black iced tea.

    Thanks!

  • So excited! A touch of heavaen on earth. FINALLY! Can we have a Fastpass enabled Starbucks? LOL We were at a different central Florida theme park with a Starbucks last summer and it was 45 minute wait for drinks after the 10 minute wait to order. Of course it was worth it for my iced grande no whip white mocha! 😉

  • This is like angels singing! I always miss my Starbucks when we stay on resort for a week but now I’ll get my fix every morning. 🙂 Great decision, Disney!!

  • With so few locations, will you be implementing the Fastpass System?

  • Will I be able to use a Quick Service dining credit for a sandwich and drink at the Walt Disney World locations?

    • Hi Rochelle, this location will accept the Disney Dining Plan.

  • Oh! And one more thing: The Starbucks mermaid should be joined by Ariel and Nemo (and maybe Mickey with a mask, snorkel, and fins).

  • Yes, while everyone else is planning a trip to see the new Carsland, I will be planning to see the new Starbucks locations!!!

  • Does this mean that the existing coffee kiosks at WDW are going to be taken over by Starbucks or is Starbucks going to be opening in the park in addition to the existing kiosks?

    • No. This announcement does not affect the sale of coffee elsewhere in our theme parks.

  • Will we be able to use our Starbucks cards inside these locations? (This is great news BTW!!!)

    • Yes!

  • Will Starbucks items be available on the Dining Plans?

  • Does this means that the Joffrey’s coffee stands will be replaced?? I love those stands, more so those donut twists they sometimes have!!

  • Is there any chance that a WDW Starbucks location could be scheduled for an expedited opening, without waiting for the initial sales results/guest experience in Disneyland. The logic behind my request, other than to get a great cup of coffee in Disney, is that East Coast people tend to live more faced paced rush rush lives, and that is also true when touring the expanse of Disney Parks in Florida. Is there some reason why the Disneyland location was chosen for an initial opening?
    Thanks,

  • So glad to hear that Starbucks will be at my favorite place on earth! Heading to Disneyland in November and I will definately be enjoying a cafe mocha in DCA!

  • Will the Starbucks be staffed by Starbucks employees or Disney employees? If they are Disney employees, will they be trained by Starbucks?

  • I will certainly be ordering the Venti Javachip Frappaccino on the warm days of September in WDW! Looking forward to finding out when and where they will be.

  • This is awesome news for those of us that aren’t fans of the Nescafe that’s offered all over the parks and resorts. I’ll be ordering a sugar free vanilla soy latte! 🙂 I’m only sad they won’t be operational before my upcoming visit.

    I’ll echo a previous poster that the Joffrey’s carts are great too, wondering if they will be leaving?

  • Will they include this in part of the Meal Options?

    • Hi Richard, this location will accept the Disney Dining Plan.

  • I’ve been saying for years Disney and SB should team up! I’m sooo excited to order my Iced Grande, non-fat, no-whip, white mocha. Woohoo, dreams do come true!

  • This will make early morning rope drops so much easier!!!! Please say there will be one on the Boardwalk in time for Food and Wine Festival!!!

  • Most importantly… If new coffee options are being introduced, does this mean there’s a chance of Tim Horton’s coffee FINALLY coming to the Canada Pavilion at Epcot?

  • Grande fat free mocha for me! This makes me so happy, see you in August Disneyland 🙂

  • Ahhhhhhhh !!!! I can smell it already as I’m walking “right down the middle of Main St USA”

  • Mocha. Fat-full, extra chocolate.

  • OMG!!!!!!! WHEN I SAW THIS I GOT SO EXCITED AND AM GLAD I RENEWED MY PASS JUS THIS PAST SATURDAY. IM GONNA B ORDERING A MOCHA FARAPACINO WOO HOO

  • As long as SB doesn’t start coming in the cans of “Mickey’s Really Swell Coffee” that I buy from the stores and the online store, then I’m good.

  • Yes!!!!

  • I think this is a great idea. Better coffee products in the parks is a very warm welcome. I just hope the starbucks logo isn’t heavily used all around the parks. Other than that awesome news.

    Countdown To D23 Blog

  • I AM SOOOO HAPPY!!!!!! When will the first one open in WDW? No more packing my own french press and coffee and making it in the room!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Can’t wait!!!

    • Hi Chandra, still finalizing when the WDW stores will open. When we know, we’ll update here on the blog. Thanks.

  • Basically, this is a dream come true. My favorite place in the world will now have my favorite coffee in the world. THANK YOU!!!!! I will be ordering an Iced Grande Skinny Vanilla Latte. YUM!!!

  • OH..And PS: We will be ordering 2 Venti americanos with room!!

  • HUGE improvement!! Thanks so much

  • Hi Tom,
    EXCELLENT NEWS!!! My wife and I are very excited for this. She used to be a Starbucks Barista and has always thought it a dream to have Starbucks inside Disney properties!
    One Question,
    Will the Malibu Mocha Frappe still be available somewhere else in the park? It used to be available in the Baker’s Field Bakery in DCA. It is so much better than a Frappuccino.
    Thanks,
    Mark

    • Hey Mark, I’m told no on the Malibu Mocha Frappe.

  • Reapeting the same questions everyone is asking:

    questions! When will they be available in WDW? We will be there the last week of august and would love a starbucks fix! Also will you be able to use the dining plan snack credit for any of the items? Cant wait!

  • How about the WDW Resort locations? Are all the places where coffee is sold now be swapped out for Starbucks coffee?

    • Hi John, this announcement does not affect the sale of coffee elsewhere in our theme parks.

  • Any chance there will be a follow up post announcing a partnership between Starbucks and Disney Cruise Line?
