PHOTOS - Starbucks at Downtown Disney Marketplace opens today

May 19, 2014 in "Starbucks Marketplace"

Posted: Monday May 19, 2014 10:29am EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

The first Starbucks at Downtown Disney opens later today at the Marketplace.

Continuing the rollout of Starbucks at Walt Disney World, the Marketplace will be the third Starbucks location after the first Magic Kingdom Main Street Bakery Starbucks store and then the Epcot Fountain View location.

The Marketplace Starbucks is a walk-up location, which does not have any interior space or seating. Along with the usual Starbucks range of beverages, they also carry a range of Starbucks baked goods. You can view the menu here. Operating hours are 8am to midnight daily.

The Marketplace Starbucks is located right in-front of World of Disney, directly opposite the waterside stage.

Opening later this Spring will be the second Downtown Disney Starbucks, which will be on the West Side, and will feature indoor seating.

Looks great! Seems like it fits well visually into Marketplace.

Got drinks there today, Baristas were awesome. Took a little time, still in training. We saved two snacks to get something there but unfortunately they could charge to rooms with the Magic Bands but weren't ready to take meal plan or maybe not taking it at all. The Barista was a bit confused today about the situation. It's beautiful and for me, a welcomed addition.

More exterior. That's pretty much all I got. I have a video of the ribbon cutting, but I don't think I can upload that? (I'm not good with technology :oops:) Also, we overheard some of the execs saying they wanted to add queues on either side for the people who had already ordered who were waiting for their orders. And because they wanted to get people away from that service door on the right side. If you have any more questions feel free to ask! :)

More interior. I'm sorry I'm doing them all separately and stuff. I'm on my phone in the car on the way home from Florida. :p

Interior of the store. They had a TON of baristas there. A lot of them seemed confused/new, but I'm sure they just needed to get in their groove. :)

My friend and I (I'm on the left) and our baristas doing the first transaction! (Sorry for the bad angles and lighting)

Ribbon cutting! One exec cut the ribbon and the store manager cut it too. He cried a little and everyone cheered.

Getting out the red ribbon.

GUYS!! So it was the last day of my WDW trip with my friend, and we had just had lunch at Paradiso 37 in Downtown Disney. We're walking toward WoD around 1:40pm, and we see the new Starbucks! And we see some people (including people in Starbucks uniforms) standing in front. So we ask them when it opens, and they say "at 2:00." And then they said for the first time ever (I didn't know it was opening today). So we were like "wow!" And got in line! Anyway we were the first customers at this location :). There were a ton of Starbucks and Disney execs there and we witnessed the ribbon cutting! I'll upload pics of it next (apologies in advance for the selfies). :D

My only beef is that they should have replaced the shake siding above the store or at least used a different color. Trying too hard to blend it with the other stores. Otherwise it is well done.

Yep it does. Looks like it's always been there. They did a nice job with this.

very nicely done... fits in well with the WOD building
