Been There Ornament Disney – Epcot

And here is the last piece of the Disney ornaments puzzle. Starbucks was pretty consistent in releasing an ornament per day, so please meet Been There Ornament Disney – Epcot with the purple string which finalizes the set of six special mini mugs. As I’ve mentioned in the preview of the bigger mug, earlier this year, Starbucks has used some retro design for Been There Series Epcot. It brings us back into 1982 when the park opened its doors for the first visitors.… Read more

Been There Ornament Disney – Animal Kingdom

After a short delay, Been There Ornament Disney – Animal Kingdom has been finally spotted in stores. The string is green, as expected.
From the quick review of the mug, it looks like Starbucks decided to not change the position of the words “jambo” (hello) on the back of the mug and “kwaherini” (goodbye) on the front. You probably remember that I expressed my concern about it in the full-size mug review. On a similar note, the not as popular slogan “Truly Alive with Adventure” was kept as well.… Read more

Been There Ornament Disney – Hollywood Studios

Been There Ornament Disney – Hollywood Studios is the second mini mug released for the Walt Disney World this season. So technically speaking Starbucks has been delivering a mug per day.

– Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith from Sunset Boulevard section of the park. It was opened on July 29, 1999, and has a sibling in Disneyland Paris.… Read more

Been There Ornament Disney – Magic Kingdom

After this morning’s news from California, East cost strikes back with Been There Ornament Disney – Magic Kingdom. It has an orange box and a light blue string.
From the only picture I have so far, I can confirm that many of the elements from the full-size mug are still here:
– Cinderella Castle, which was inspired by the eponymous movie. It became a symbol of the park and the base for the logo of Walt Disney Pictures. Interesting facts: there are a total of 27 towers on the castle, each numbered from 1 to 29, with the exception of 13 and 17 which were canceled during the constructions.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Michigan 2

Starbucks Been There Ornament Michigan v2 is finally here and I have to mention, that the bigger version of updated Michigan mug was spotted almost 3 months ago. As a reminder, the only change, the new mug is introducing, is “Winter Water Wonderland” slogan being replaced with “Water Winter Wonderland”. And as I’ve suggested earlier, I consider this a fix and not just a revision, since there was, obviously, the wrong motto used for v1.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Pike Place

I somehow missed to add this mini mug to the site, and it’s a shame, because this one is special, since Starbucks Been There Ornament – Pike Place can only be bought in one store – The Pike Place Starbucks store, commonly called the Original Starbucks. That particular store has obviously found it’s place on the mug. The string is green.… Read more

– State flag, adopted in 1909. It features the state seal with the frigate Raleigh surrounded by laurel leaves and nine stars against a field of blue.… Read more
