|This topic is for Discussion of Latest: Starbucks Locations to Open Magic Kingdom and Epcot in 2013|
From the Disney Parks Blog on Friday...
Today, we’re excited to share that the first two Walt Disney World Resort locations will open next year, one at Magic Kingdom Park and one at Epcot.
At Magic Kingdom Park, Main Street Bakery will close for refurbishment in January 2013 and reopen as a Starbucks location in early summer. At Epcot, Fountain View will close in March 2013 and reopen as a Starbucks location in midsummer.
Both locations will be designed to fit the theme of their surroundings. At Magic Kingdom Park, for example, cast members will wear a costume 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.
The Starbucks locations at Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot will both offer the full complement of Starbucks® signature beverages, artisan breakfast sandwiches and a wide selection of baked goods, including muffins, scones and specialty treats.
More Starbucks locations are coming to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland park soon. We’ll be sure to keep you posted!

|The one at DCA is amazing. If the MK one is half as good it'll be great.|

|The one at DLP isn't inside the parks, it's in Disney Village, but the location was always so crowded and queues were very long. It doesn't surprise me, because the Nestle branded coffee was very bad.|
I hope DLP and WDSP might also get a Starbucks.

|While I didn't eat at the Starbucks at DCA, it was really well designed to fit in with its surroundings, so it didn't bother me. |

|Wasn't it announced that the Starbucks deal would be for all 6 US parks? DCA already has theirs on Buena Vista Street, and DL is rumored to be getting its in the winter/spring at the Market House locaiton on Main Street. I wonder where they're planning on putting it in the Studios and DAK, assuming the full plan is still in effect.|

|Am I the only one thatat's concerned about the revamping of the Main Street Bakery? I often pick up a turnover or a cinnamon bun on my way out of the park in the evening and save it for a morning snack. Starbucks pastries have never impressed me and their coffee? When will people realize wake up and realize it's just coffee?|

It's indeed just coffee, but compared to the Nestle crap that is currently offered, it's good coffee and definitely better than Nescafe. In Paris we got at least Segafredo, an Italian brand. And a Starbucks in DV.

I can understand your frustration over the baked goods - although the Bakery was hardly Bouchon it at least had decent fresh pastries. Apart from the muffins I do find SBs stuff to be disappointing - and even the muffins aren't the finest for the price point. I guess it is a function of having to truck the stuff to each store rather than having the ability to bake-in-store.
I always chuckle when they describe their breakfast sandwiches as "artisan". They aren't even up to the standard of a McMuffin IMHO. I've had a lot of them and it is usually out of convenience (as I'm a SBs coffee addict it is the first port of call every morning).
