Starbucks is now officially open on Main Street in Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The location is in the Main Street Bakery location found on the right as guests walk from the Train Station towards Cinderella Castle. Outside of the restaurant, the above Starbucks sign can be seen hanging, beckoning in guests for a cup of coffee.
Inside, you may find long lines depending on the time of day you arrive. The restaurant has been opened up and now includes two line sides, making getting through the lines quicker than in the past. Cast Members are often available at the front of each line to hand out menus to help guests select which drink and food items they want to purchase before getting to the head of the line. This also helps make the order-to-food-in-hand process quicker.
In addition to the regular Starbucks drinks, there are a wide variety of cookies, cupcakes and scones. Some of these items are the same as those found in a typical Starbucks, others are unique to this Main Street location. As you can see, the costumes warn by the Starbucks cast members are typical of other Main Street cast member costumes. This helps to keep the original feel of the Main Street Bakery.
Menus for the drinks can be found above the counter as well.
Once you have picked up your drink, you will find drink stations on the left and right end of the restaurant. Each station is large and includes two sets of all bar items. This gives more room for guests to be able to fix their drinks to their likings during the busy times of the day.
What is missed by many guests are the tables that were found to the right of the ordering location. The space that was previously used for this area is now used for the second ordering area. There are small counter tops where guests can stand (not sit) and look out on Main Street. If you are looking for a spot to sit, you will need to head out on Main Street and look for a bench!
The addition of the Starbucks has made many Disney fans upset as they felt that the addition meant Main Street was cluttered with overly popular businesses looking to display their brand within their Disney parks. Others are so excited that Disney will now offer coffee that is of quality.
