Today I am happy to report that the Trolley Car Cafe has opened in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World. This new Starbucks location opened 2/3/2015. You can’t miss it on your right as you are strolling down Hollywood Boulevard after you enter the park in a building that used to house a retail shop. This only leaves Animal Kingdom without a Starbucks location and that location is scheduled to open in June 2015.
I don’t want to start up the debate about Starbucks being in the theme parks but I give this location an A+ for the theming. You truly feel like you have gone back in time with the theming and you don’t feel like you are in a modern day Starbucks. The coffee is pretty good too!
They do offer sandwiches if you are looking for a quick breakfast before you head off to the attractions.
The Sorcerer’s Hat is slowly fading away. As more of the structure is revealed, it is more complex that I previously thought. It is much sturdier than I thought it was and you could see a ramp and stairs. Before you know it you will have a clear view down to the Great Movie Ride once again. A part of Disney history will soon only be remembered by the photos that so many people took of the hat. Already people talk about what the view was like before the hat, you will hear some reminisce that the hat was always there for them. I know that some are thrilled it is going away but I have to admit I am a little sad that the hat will soon be a part of Disney history.
They have relocated the pins that used to be sold under the hat to a new location. The shop is now located on Sunset Boulevard. If you are looking for some pins to take home as a memento of your trip you will find a large selection here.
