I am a creature of habit when it comes to my morning iced coffee from Starbucks.
Yes, that’s right. I, a girl from Boston, run on Starbucks iced coffee. Don’t tell the folks at Dunkin Donuts!
When it comes to Disney World, I still want to start my day off with a giant cup of caffeinated goodness.
While there are other options for iced coffee and other coffee drinks at Disney World, such as Everglazed and Joffrey’s, if I can get my hands on Starbys, I am a happy girl.
Thankfully, Disney World started serving Starbucks at Disney World in 2012 and to date, there are six Starbucks locations throughout the resort!
In this post, I’ll show you where you can get Starbucks at Disney World, including the hidden spots in theme parks, so you can get your Starbys fix while away from home, too.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Creature Comforts
Head to Creature Comforts Coffee Shop, which is located on Discovery Island next to Pizzafari, for your Starbucks fix at Animal Kingdom.
This location serves most of the usual Starbucks menu, plus a few Disneyfied extras, like Mickey Mouse cinnamon rolls.
In addition, if you get a flat white drink, a portion of the money gets donated to the Disney Conservation Fund to support the study of the endangered cotton-top tamarin monkey (which you can see at Animal Kingdom!).
The cotton-top tamarins can be watched directly across from the coffee shop, so you can enjoy your flat white while leisurely watching these cheeky monkeys play.
TIP: Plastic disposable straws are not allowed at Animal Kingdom due to the harm it could cause to the animals and the environment. Therefore, only paper straws are offered if needed. If you need a more durable straw, I recommend bringing a reusable silicone or metal straw.
Epcot – Connections Café
Connections Café, located in the World Celebration neighborhood just after Spaceship earth, is where you can get Starbucks at Epcot.
This semi-new location is GIGANTIC compared to previous locations at Epcot. And despite how busy it is, the line moves fairly quick and you can usually find a seat to rest your feet.
I love that they have a few areas with couches and coffee tables, just like a real café would!
Additionally, you can cross through Connections Café to get to World Discovery, where Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Mission: SPACE, and Test Track are located.
Or if you’re already coming from that side, you can cross over to catch up with Nemo, Crush, Moana, and pals at SeaBase and the upcoming attraction, Journey of Water.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios – The Trolley Car Café
The Trolley Car Café, located on the right side of Hollywood Boulevard when you enter the park is actually a Starbucks in disguise!
This location has the usual Starbucks menu, like breakfast sandwiches and pastries, plus lots of extras. It’s a great spot to hunt for Disney cupcakes and Starbucks Disney mugs!
Magic Kingdom – Main Street Bakery
Located right on iconic Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom is the Main Street Bakery, yet another hidden Starbucks at Disney World.
The Main Street Bakery is on the right side of Main Street as you enter the park and head toward Cinderella’s Castle.
If you have trouble finding it, look for the green siren logo in the window. Or, if it’s morning, the super duper long line of groggy looking people!
Disney Springs – two locations!
There are two Starbucks locations at Disney Springs: Disney Springs Marketplace and Disney Springs West Side.
Disney Springs Marketplace is located next to World of Disney and the Lego store.
Disney Springs West Side is located across the walkway from Disney Style.
Mobile ordering is available via the Starbucks app and you can also earn stars at these 2 regular Starbucks stores.
In addition, the West Side location has a Clover brewing machine which brews coffee one order at a time.
Typically the coffees available for the Clover machine are small batch blends from farmers around the world.
I first got hooked on Clover brews when I tried a Hawaiian Kona blend iced at a Starbucks in Boston. It was heaven in a cup! Plus, I loved watching it be made fresh right in front of me.
Any time I visit a location with a Clover brewing machine, I get something from the Clover menu!
Can I use Disney Dining Plan credits at Starbucks?
NOTE: The Disney Dining Plan is not available at this time, but is expected to return at some point.
Yes – most Starbucks drink and bakery items are available for purchase using a snack credit. Just look out for the Disney Dining Plan DDP logo to confirm.
This is one of my favorite ways to redeem a Disney Dining Plan snack credit, since you can get any size drink.
That said, keep an eye out for bakery items special to Disney, like cupcakes or Mickey shaped treats.
Items like this might cost more than some drinks, even at venti size. Therefore, they would be a more valuable trade for a DDP snack credit.
Can you use mobile order at any of these locations?
Mobile order via the My Disney Experience app is not available for any of these Starbucks locations.
In addition, mobile order via the Starbucks app is only available at the 2 Disney Springs locations.
What’s your favorite thing to get at Starbucks at Disney World?
I always go for a venti cold brew with half & half or a venti iced caramel macchiato.
I usually don’t get a pastry at Starbucks when I’m at Disney World. However, if I’m with my niece, chances are she’ll beg for one of the special Disney cupcakes (and I’ll cave)!
Let me know what your favorite Starbucks at Disney World order is in the comments below.
