On June 19, 2015, a Starbucks opened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Since the park does not allow plastic straws due to the animals, this location features special green eco-friendly straws with their cold drinks. This was the sixth Starbucks to open in Walt Disney World, following locations in the Magic KingdomEpcotDisney’s Hollywood Studios, and two in Disney Springs. In addition to these six, there are locations in DisneylandDisney California Adventure, Anaheim’s Downtown Disney, and Disney Village at Disneyland Paris. The Downtown Disney and Disney Springs locations are Starbucks-operated, while the locations inside of the theme parks are Disney-operated.
