I have always been slightly curious as to who and where the big decisions and ideas get formed. I have always wondered how easy or difficult it may be to get involved with the Walt Disney Company.
Starting in June, the first in-park Starbucks will open in Disney’s California Adventure.
Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom will follow at an unspecified time.
Starbucks states that many of their customers have requested for locations within Disney theme parks through MyStarbucksIdeas.com for quite some time now.
How will they look? Disney has stated each Starbucks location will have a unique theme to blend into its surroundings. At the California Adventure location, it will be located in an eatery called the “Fiddler, Fifer, and Practical Cafe.” The store will be built with Spanish/Mexican architecture and the “baristas” brewing your coffee or latte will be wearing period costumes.
This is not the first time that these two companies have worked together. While new to the domestic parks, in June of 2009, Starbucks opened a store in Disneyland Paris’ Disney Village.
Only time will tell if this will pay off for Walt Disney Co. and Starbucks, if I were a betting man, I would say it absolutely will!!
Mickey Mouse latte please…….
