The second Disneyland Resort Starbucks location is set to open on Main Street U.S.A. later this year. The Market House, currently a coffee shop which is themed to a turn-of-the-century general store, along with the neighboring Disneyana collectibles shop, will close next month to receive a complete renovation.
When the new Market House reopens in the Fall of 2013 the location will serve Starbucks coffee and a special selection of Disney pastries.
Disneyana will move to a new home inside the Bank of Main Street building. A few years ago, the Disney Gallery moved into this space and has featured exhibits and artwork similar to what Disneyana sells. It has been a bit redundant having both Disneyana and the Disney Gallery on Main Street since the Disney Gallery was removed from its original location above the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in 2007. The new Disneyana location will share space with the Disney Gallery, which will continue to showcase Disney art exhibits and merchandise. Disney has also confirmed that a new exhibit is coming to the Disney Gallery soon, and will feature art inspired by Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this summer.
The exact timeline for construction has not been announced, however it is assumed that all three locations will close over the busy summer season to receive their respective makeovers. If Disney does indeed close Disneyana all summer, those visiting the Disneyland Resort can find many of the same collectibles and Art of Disney, print on demand kiosks at Disney California Adventure inside Off the Page and in Downtown Disney at the World of Disney.
The first Disneyland Resort Starbucks location opened in June of 2012 on Disney California Adventure’s Buena Vista Street inside Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Cafe. The cafe maintains a consistent theme with the 1930’s Buena Vista Street, serves Starbucks coffee and has minimal signage. Disney has confirmed on their blog that the Market House will retain it’s current general store theme – down to the telephone party lines and checkers board, but sadly the tradition of free coffee refills will end.
The Market House Starbucks location will open on Main Street U.S.A. inside Disneyland this fall.
Update: MousePlanet’s David Koenig is reporting that the Market House and Disneyana will close on April 15th.
