1. The Trolley Car Café

Starting or ending my day with coffee or dessert always puts a smile across my face. If you’re looking for a great cup of coffee, there is no better place than Starbucks, which is located inside the Trolley Car Café. In addition to enjoying your favorite cup of coffee or specialty beverage, you can also select goodies to eat from fresh Starbucks sandwiches and desserts; Disney baked goods, and diving pastry items from La Boulange. What is great about The Trolley Car Café is that it is open from the moment the park opens until it closes and it is located at the front of the park, which is perfect to grabbing a cup o’ Joe as you walk in or sneak a pastry or dessert on your way out. It is also a great idea to grab breakfast here if you choose not to sit down because most of the beverages and food items can be consumed ‘on-the-go’ so you wont have to waste time!
