Hot or iced, served with a shot of espresso or a dash of cinnamon, for many people their days don’t officially start until they’ve had that first cup (or 2) of coffee.
If you’re visiting Disney World you may not realize that you can find your favorite Starbucks drinks at all four of the parks and at Disney Springs, too.
Check out the tips and maps below to learn all there is to know about Starbucks at Disney World.
Starbucks at Disney World is often not called Starbucks
In the parks, the Starbucks locations aren’t actually called Starbucks, so you might walk on by without realizing it.
Here are the names and locations in each park.
Note: mobile ordering in the Starbucks app is not available in the parks.
Starbucks at Magic Kingdom – Main Street Bakery
In Magic Kingdom, you can find Starbucks at Main Street Bakery, which is located on the right side after you enter and about halfway down Main Street.
Tip: Main Street Bakery is often open before the park officially opens.
Lines here can get very long (just like at any Starbucks) so if you plan to grab something before the park opens, it may make sense to split up with one person grabbing the coffee while the rest of the group waits further in the park.
There is no seating here, but if you are looking for someplace nearby to enjoy your coffee, there are tables located outside the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and Plaza Restaurant, as well as across the street in front of Casey’s Corner.
Starbucks at Epcot – Connections Café
The former permanent Starbucks location at Epcot was called Fountain View, and you used to be able to find it near the now demolished Fountain of Nations that was just past Spaceship Earth.
After that location closed, a temporary location called Traveler’s Café opened up. It was small and only had a walk-up window.
The new Epcot Starbucks location is called Connections Café. It is very spacious with lots of seating, plus, it has a connected Quick Service location called Connections Eatery where you can order food.
You can find it in World Celebration near Spaceship Earth.
Starbucks at Hollywood Studios – Trolley Car Café
At Hollywood Studios, Starbucks is called Trolley Car Cafe and it is located on the right side (as you enter the park) at the corner of Hollywood and Sunset.
Just like Magic Kingdom, this location is also often available before the park officially opens.
Are you a fan of the famous Carrot Cake Cookie? You can find it here!
There isn’t any seating inside, but there are tables nearby next to the Brown Derby, plus lots of places to sit along the low walls that line the courtyard in front of the Chinese Theater.
Starbucks at Animal Kingdom – Creature Comforts
In Animal Kingdom, Starbucks is called Creature Comforts, and it is located on the left just before the bridge to the Africa section.
For some reason, the Starbucks at Animal Kingdom really lends itself to relaxation.
Before the heat of the day takes over, we recommend grabbing a coffee and then taking some time to explore the Discovery Island Trails while you enjoy it.
Starbucks at Disney Springs
There are 2 locations in Disney Springs – a smaller location located near the World of Disney store, and a much larger full-sized location located by the water near the AMC Disney Springs 24.
Fun facts about each of these locations:
- In the larger location in the West Side, there’s a screen where you can see the Disneyland Starbucks location and its visitors (and they can see you).
- At the smaller Marketplace location, you can order delivery to wherever you are in Disney Springs. Just download the official Starbucks app, make sure your credit card is linked, touch the Order tab, select the Marketplace location, and then order your item(s). Call the location at 407-279-2794 to let them know where you’re located in Disney Springs and they’ll bring it to you. This service is available 8 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Order Starbucks at Disney World before the park opens
You can order Starbucks at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios before the park is officially open because the area that they allow guests to enter while they wait includes the Starbucks locations.
Lines can be long, but they do move relatively quickly.
Do the Disney resort hotels have Starbucks?
Unfortunately, none of the Disney resort hotels offer Starbucks. Most resort hotels have in-room coffee makers that are either Cuisinart or Keurig machines. If the latter, you’ll even find Joffrey’s K-cups!
Additionally, non-Starbucks coffee can also be found at the restaurants and food courts at the resorts.
Can you Mobile Order Starbucks at Disney World?
Unfortunately, you can not Mobile Order Starbucks through either the My Disney Experience or Starbucks apps.
Payment options for Starbucks at Disney World
When it comes time to pay at Starbucks, you can use:
- Starbucks Gift Cards
- Disney Gift Cards
- a Disney Reward Redemption card
- the Starbucks app
- MagicBand and MagicBand+ (onsite guests only)
- Starbucks Reward Points (Disney Springs locations only)
- Disney Dining Plan credits (currently unavailable)
Starbucks gift cards & Reward Points
Starbucks gift cards are accepted at all Disney World Starbucks locations; however, you can only use your Starbucks Reward Points at the 2 Disney Springs Starbucks locations.
Disney gift cards at Starbucks
Disney gift cards are accepted at the Starbucks locations at Disney World.
The Starbucks app works for payment at all locations at Disney World and you can earn Stars (but not Bonus Stars). However, you can only redeem free drinks at the locations at Disney Springs, not in the parks.
Of course, if you are staying onsite, you can also pay with a MagicBand (which will charge your purchase back to your room).
Disney Reward Redemption Card
If you have a Disney Rewards Visa, you can use your Redemption Card towards your purchase.
Use Disney Dining Plan credits to order Starbucks treats (currently unavailable)
Almost everything on the menu is considered a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan, and if you get a drink with lots of extra flavors in it, it becomes a really good value of a snack credit because you would have paid $8 or 9 out of pocket (and anything $5+ is considered a good snack credit value).
The Menu is a combo of Disney and Starbucks items
Each location has favorite Starbucks treats, but also offers Disney-specific items like specialty cupcakes and Mickey-shaped things.
Purchase exclusive Disney mugs at Starbucks locations
Walt Disney World has their own set of the popular Been There Series mugs that feature each park.
These mugs are exclusively available at Disney World.
There are also plastic and ceramic tumblers, pins, and ornaments (many of which can be purchased online):
Annual Passholder and Disney Vacation Club discounts are available on merchandise, including the mugs.
