The next two Starbucks locations at Walt Disney World are now confirmed to be at Downtown Disney.
The first will be in the West Side, taking up the space currently occupied by Wetzel's Pretzels and Haagen Dazs Ice Cream. Both Wetzel's Pretzels and Haagen Dazs will continue to operate with new kiosks located near to Disney Quest.
The second Downtown Disney Starbucks location will be a kiosk near to World of Disney in the Marketplace area.
Starbucks at Downtown Disney has been expected since the announcement of Disney Springs, but the construction of the new Starbucks location is now planned to begin in October 2013. This means that these new locations will open in the existing Downtown Disney rather than opening with the redeveloped Disney Springs.
Disney has recently opened Starbucks locations in the Magic Kingdom at the Main Street Bakery and at Epcot's Fountain View.
At least two more Walt Disney World Starbucks are planned - at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom. No specific locations or timeframes are available on those two locations at this time.
