This week Walt Disney World is welcoming its third theme park Starbucks location, joining Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Bakery and Epcot’s Fountain View.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios will officially open its Starbucks tomorrow, Feb 4th, as the ’20s themed Trolley Car Cafe. It’s located on the right side of Hollywood Boulevard, close to the park’s main entrance, which ensures that most guests will happen to stroll by.
This past Saturday was a soft opening, so I had a chance to peek inside and try one of their famous coffees. The Trolley Car Cafe will feature the regular Starbucks menu including drinks, pastries and breakfast sandwiches. It inhabits the old merchandise location L.A Prop Shop and is a big, airy location now, but still lacks seating.
There are several Disney references throughout the location, like a small Pixar reference on the switch board inside Trolley Car Cafe. A113 is a common Pixar movie easter egg referencing the classroom where talented Pixar animators like John Lasseter and Brad Bird were attended CalArts.
