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?

Here are the points of interest and symbols of Magic Kingdom park that made it to the design of the mug:

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.

Let’s start with California. If we look at the bottoms of California Adventure 2 and Disneyland 2 it turns out, that the first is based on the Paradise Pier and the second is based on the Fantasyland. I’ve combined these two and the newest Disney mug from California together in a collage. … Read more
