Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round-Up for December 3, 2014: Coffee...and Coffee

Permits Filed For Starbucks Construction?:  Yesterday, Disney filed a “Notice of Commencement” to begin construction on a project being called “Creature Comfort Kiosk Installation”. It seems a permanent “kiosk” is going to be built next to Creature Comforts and from all the information we can gather it appears as though this will be the location for Starbucks at Disney’s Animal Kingdom…because, ya know, nothing gives you that “transported to a far off adventure” quite like a cup of overpriced brand-name coffee. (Today’s snark is free of charge!)

Isle of Java Closes for Move: This is the apparently the coffee edition of the DAK News Round-up. According to, the Isle of Java kiosk closed after park hours on Monday night in anticipation of a move to the Flame Tree Barbecue area. This could be the Safari Cantina project we discussed last week, but here’s hoping it’s not. I, for one, would much rather have something like a bar rather than yet another coffee location.

Park Hours for this week are...

Wednesday: December 3  9am - 6pm (Extra Magic Hour 8 - 9am)
Thursday: December 4  9am - 6pm
Friday: December 5  9am - 7pm
Saturday: December 6  9am - 7pm
Sunday: December 7  9am - 7pm
Monday: December 8  9am - 6pm (Extra Magic Hour 8 - 9am)
Tuesday: December 9  9am - 6pm
