It was announced back in April that Starbucks was coming to Walt Disney World. Many have waited (impatiently) to find out when they’ll be able to actually get some decent coffee in the parks. Well, today we wait no longer: Disney announced not only when the Starbucks will open, but also where.
The Siren will be making its debut at the Magic Kingdom in the Main Street Bakery. The shop will close in January 2013 and will open once again in early Summer 2013. Over at Epcot, Starbucks will be opening up inside the Fountain View, which is slated to close in March 2013 and reopen near the middle of Summer 2013.
The locations are expected to serve all the general items that Starbucks usually serves.
Additional locations are expected to be announced for both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom soon.
Edit: Disney has clarified a few things on their blog about this new Starbucks, quelling any fears that people may have been feeling. The Main Street Bakery will indeed keep it’s name and it’s theming when it reopens from it’s refurbishment. It will also still serve Disney favorite items, in addition the the Starbucks branded items. While the refurb is taking place, guests will be able to get cinnamon rolls from Gaston’s Bakery and Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches from The Plaza.
