Construction on the new Starbucks location coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is making some real progress. Not only does the location have a name “The Trolley Car Cafe”, it has a new sign (the Starbucks logo is covered up by that brown cover). It looks like you’ll be able to order those Venti Mochas pretty soon.
I’m a little saddened by the decision to close the door at the exit of Celebrity 5 & 10 on Hollywood Blvd. That will cut off one of the very few ways around the parade route for guest pedestrian traffic. Of course, they don’t currently do a parade very often. I hope that changes though.
Thanks to a small gap in the paper covering the windows we were able to get a preview of what the interior looks like. It looks a little under-stated to me. Yes, it’s not finished, so we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt here.
This Starbucks is located the closest to the front entrance of any location in the parks, but it’s also at one of the busiest crossroads, so it should see a lot of foot traffic, especially as families head down toward Fantasmic! in the evening.
No official opening date has been set other than early in 2015.
