The rumors about the release of the anniversary edition mug, namely You Are Here Disney – Disneyland Paris 2 have been confirmed by the pictures of the actual mug that is now available for sale in the Disney Village.

Been There Disney – Epcot 2

And last but not least from the recent Disney releases, is Been There Disney – Epcot v2 mug. The list below is what Starbucks designers have used as inspiration for the mug.

Been There Disney – Magic Kingdom 2

I am finally reviewing the Been There Disney – Magic Kingdom v2 mug that was delayed for some reason. All four new mugs for the Walt Disney World have the “50th Anniversary” theme in their design however it is only Magic Kingdom that was opened 50 years ago, on October 1, 1971. The second park, Epcot, was only opened 11 years later!
Similar to other recent Disney mugs, this one has a legend on the cover with a list of all the elements from the mug’s design.… Read more

Been There Disney – California Adventure 2

Been There Disney – California Adventure v2 follows Disneyland v2 that we’ve seen earlier. I am happy to see both Disney parks from California receiving the revision, and not just World Disney World parks (for 50th Anniversary).
I really like the new design for its bright colors and the fact that all the elements are listed in the legend on the cover of the box. Here are they:
