Any Starbucks sightings yet?!

After the news release last April, I've been waiting patiently to hear of the new openings. I was hoping the one at Magic Kingdom would be open by the time we went for F & W this month, but haven't heard of anything yet! Anyone hear anything new?

I keep hoping they'll be open before our February trip. That is the only serious flaw with Disney for me - mediocre (at best) coffee. They do everything else so well that I cannot understand why they fail with coffee.

Wonder what the reason is that they do use yucky coffee? Are coke products and Nescafe one company? If so, then that is the reason they use that coffee...

1) Somewhat.
2) They announced the deal, then put one in at Disneyland.
3) They just haven't started work at WDW, yet.

NOTE: Don't know where in the other parks, but the rumor is the
MK Starbucks will be on the right side of Main Street, short of
the Confectioners.

In the interim, with first-hand knowledge, The Writer's Stop (in HS) makes a nice, real espresso. Also, Fresh Market at the Dolphin serves carafes of Starbucks coffee with their breakfasts.

If I remember the announcement they were going to start in Disney Land and if it went well then they would roll it out in DW. Dont think we will see any until 2013.

Missoutandabout, do you happen to know if the regular coffee is also good, or is that still Nescafe? Just curious for my next trip!

Eww....is it going to be an actual Starbucks store right on Main Street or will it be a Disney themed coffee shop that serves Starbucks?

I hope it's not going to be an actual Starbucks-that would look so aesthetically awful on Main Street in MK.

The Starbucks in the parks are not going to be full blown Starbucks stores. They're going to be themed to match the area they are in so no huge green Starbucks signs outside Inside it will still be themed for Disney with Starbucks drinks and food as well as Disney offerings as well (Mickey Cookies, Cupcakes ect)

I cannot wait for Starbucks in the parks, however I can only IMAGINE the line of a morning if the Main St Bakery starts serving Starbucks coffee too...Maybe you'll be able to get a FastPass for it?

From my understanding it is going to be Disney themed and blend into the are it is in but will sell the full menu Starbucks offers. I don't think they are going to be called Starbucks.

The one at Disney California Adventure blends in so well that we passed by it 4 or 5 times (I was specifically looking for the Starbucks) before my daughter noticed the starbucks sign (as you can see from the pictures previously posted) It was extremely crowded inside with people 8 to 10 deep in each register line (and it wasn't even early morning or meal time).

Okay, in lieu of Starbucks...are there any places in the parks that have REAL hot chocolate? Im not talking the powder/water stuff, but with real milk and real chocolate? Anyone know if the Writer's Shop offers that?
