Discovery Series Disney – Magic Kingdom

Starbucks Discovery Series Disney – Magic Kingdom is the newest mug for the Walt Disney World park. The design of this release shares an interesting detail with other mugs from this collection, namely, the big yellow circle right in front of the mug (the circle is orange for California Adventure and blue for Epcot). I can only assume it symbolizes sun?

– Space Mountain is an iconic indoor roller coaster located in Tomorrowland.… Read more

Discovery Series Disney – California Adventure

In my previous post I cautiously suggested that more Discovery Series mugs are coming soon. I guess, I was not wrong, as we’re getting news about new mugs and ornaments from all six Disney Parks.
Discovery Series Disney – California Adventure mug is the first of them that I would like to present to you. I wish Starbucks added the legend of the points of interest depicted on the mug, as it did for the Been There series mug, however this is not the end of the world, as all these attractions are very well known to the visitors of the park.… Read more
