Discovery Series Disney – Magic Kingdom

Starbucks Discovery Series Disney – Magic Kingdom is the newest mug from the Walt Disney World Resort. 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).

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 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
