Been There Ornament Disney – Animal Kingdom 2

Along with the bigger mug Starbucks has released the WDW 50th Anniversary ornaments as well. Please meet Been There Ornament Disney – Animal Kingdom 2
If you compare the ornament to the full-size mug, it becomes obvious that Starbucks decided to not create a custom design by rearranging or removing the elements, as is the case for all other ornaments from Been There series. This time artists went with a full copy of the design of the mug, just making it smaller.… 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
