Here is some great news to start the week off with: Starbucks and Disney Parks & Resorts announced today that Starbucks will soon have one location in every park at the Disneyland Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort. This June, the first of these themed Starbucks locations will open in Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café on Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure. The store’s location plays off the Spanish/Mexican architecture of the period, and baristas will wear 1920s-inspired attire.
“Starbucks and Disney have many things in common,” said Arthur Rubinfeld, president, Global Development, for Starbucks. “We share a passion for providing excellent customer service, delivering high quality in everything we do, and ensuring that every experience with our brand exceeds our customers’ expectations. This is something our customers and partners (employees) have asked for through MyStarbucksIdea.com since the site launched more than four years ago, so we are pleased to bring this idea to life.”
These new Starbucks locations will include signature items such as coffee and espresso beverages, Frappuccino® blended beverages, and signature breakfast sandwiches and pastries. Disney will also be serving its own signature sandwiches, desserts, and other sweet treats. Beverages will be served in Disney and Starbucks branded cups.
“We know food and beverage offerings are an important part of the memories our guests make at Disney Parks and now they will be able to enjoy their favorite Starbucks® beverage as part of their experience,” said Maribeth Bisienere, vice president, food and beverage line of business for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “Many of our guests have shared their passion for Starbucks with us, and we look forward to making their feedback a reality as we debut the first location at Disney California Adventure.”
