This time of year, we all need a little extra boost to get us through the day. Dark days and busy holiday plans can cause us to be worn down and tired. That extra caffeine boost won’t cost as much at Starbucks this holiday season.

Holiday Drinks

The beloved holiday cups have been back for a while now at Starbucks, but the holiday drinks are also starting to return to select areas.

The pumpkin spice season has transitioned to peppermint season for many. A new Ice Gingerbread Oatmilk Chai has been added to the holiday menu, and many favorites have returned.

Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte can all be found at most Starbucks destinations.

Starbucks and Disney

If you are an avid Starbucks fan heading to Walt Disney World, you can still enjoy your favorite drink while visiting. Each of the four Disney Parks at Walt Disney World has a designated Starbucks location.

In Magic Kingdom, you can grab your Starbucks at the Main Street Bakery and enjoy a nice, relaxing stroll towards the castle. EPCOT’s Starbucks in now located within Connections Cafe, a relaxing area for a break during a busy day in the park.

The Starbucks location at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is found as you enter the park at the Trolley Car Café on Hollywood Boulevard. Finally, over in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Starbucks is located inside Creature Comforts.

Although you can find your favorite Starbucks drink throughout Walt Disney World, remember that your Starbucks Rewards will only work in the parks; redeeming Stars will not.

The good news is that Starbucks Rewards DO WORK at Disney Springs. There are two Starbucks within Disney Springs, and they function just like all regular Starbucks stores. This means you can order, pay, and use rewards like in your hometown.

Reward yourself with a bit of extra holiday cheer this month with Starbucks.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
