Magic Man is my personal go to album for this summer season. Their electric upbeat album keeps the summer fun going from the moment you press play.

A spectacular new place to grab a cup of coffee!

Now we know that Starbucks are around almost every corner nowadays but with the magic of Disney, Starbucks came together to create the first company-operated Starbucks location in Downtown Disney. What could be a better then a combination of caffeine high mixed with Disneyland? The store has many fun features and places to recharge while at the parks or an energetic location to meet up with friends. Guest can get the normal Starbucks coffee experience at the coffee bar or try more rare coffees at the clover brew bar, where they brew single cups of coffee to order. I grabbed a cup of Ethiopian from the clover bar and went to explore the beautiful store. Upon entry guest can interact with a 10-foot touch screen that shows the history behind Starbucks Coffee. Pretty fun for younger guest but the best place to sit and enjoy your cup of coffee is on the outdoor patio in front of the living wall. Over 1,000 native plants take form to make the shape of a coffee cup. The store inside and out is sustainably built from reclaimed wood and glass with a modern edge.  Next time your in the parks or around Downtown Disney be sure to grab a cup of coffee and experience this one of a kind Starbucks location with that Disney flair.
