Construction has been underway since June on the new Starbucks at Disney's Hollywood Studios in the location of the former L.A. Prop Cinema Storage shop on Hollywood Blvd.

The refurbishment is expected to take place through to the end of February next year, with the Starbucks opening in March 2015.

The Studios Starbucks will join the Starbucks at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Downtown Disney West Side and Downtown Disney Marketplace. Construction is expected to begin soon on the Starbucks at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Disney has not yet announced any details on Starbucks at Disney's Hollywood Studios, other than confirming a Starbucks will open at four Walt Disney World parks.

A beautiful addition!

I was able to visit for the first time yesterday. What a truly beautiful job they did with this. What I love about it is, it doesn't scream Starbucks. We past it several times before my wife realized it was the Starbucks location. The inside is themed perfectly, my 6 year old son is a train/trolley nut and he absolutely loved it.

I'd argue with the amount of people traffic and the little amount of space, adding seating would simply not work there. Here, however, there's plenty of room for seating in an area where few people walk.

Those old cars used to get moved around all the time. I have a pic around here someplace from when they first opened, they had cars out on Hollywood Blvd.If I can find it I'll share. If it's on wheels it's meant to be moved. It'll pop up somewhere else. It is quite news worthy when Disney ADDS seating though, isn't it? LOL Wish they had the room to do so over on Main Street near the converted Bakery. I miss the ability to sit back and relax there first thing in the morning. I suppose there was only so much they could do with the space.

I knew it! :)

Oh hmmmm I'm torn. I love the addition of the seating but I hate the removal of the classic car that was there.

That improves this location even more. The addition of places to sit! Something else they didn't have to add but did.

Outdoor seating is now available.

Not sure what happened to my post but I also said that i just heard that they added outdoor seating. Can anyone confirm?

You are forgetting this is the new Disney World, you should have planned what you are going to do for the rest of the day 2 - 6 months ago.

I heard yesterday that they had added outdoor seating. Can anyone confirm? I think the confusion is that yesterday Trolley Car starting serving the Starring Rolls cupcakes.

I actually like Starbucks but will be extremely disappointed if Starring rolls closes. Their cakes are the best and family tradition to go there after riding Toy Story to have a coffee & cake and plan what we are going to do for the rest of the day.

No it is operating as normal as I know.

note2001Feb 07, 2015

Is starring rolls closed now? There's a twitter pic out there from yesterday saying it's been replaced by starbucks.
