Walt Disney World Guests who enjoy grabbing their coffee in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
may notice something unusual today. Half of a venue located in Discovery Island is mysteriously closed.
In addition to popular Starbucks
coffee offerings, Creature Comforts
is known for its specialty beverages and baked goods. From breakfast sandwiches to pastries, the African-themed venue is a charming location.
Items on the menu include favorites like Frappuccinos, Refreshers, and Cold Brews, as well as classic Expresso and Coffee Drinks. In addition to Starbucks’ typical breakfast sandwiches, Guests can enjoy some unique sweet treats!
In honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary
, a Celebration Cupcake and Mickey Mousse Dome are tempting options. For those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth, the Mickey Colossal Cimmanon Roll will hit the spot with its oversized cinnamon bun and royal blue icing.
Disney Conservation Fund
Guests can contribute to Disney’s Conservation Fund by ordering any size Flat White Latte. The proceeds go towards protecting Cotton-top Tamarins, endangered monkeys found in South America.
The expresso drink was chosen due to the dollop that tops off the beverage, which resembles the fluffy white hair crowning the Tamarin’s head.
Disney’s Conservation Fund was founded in 1995 and “supports the study of wildlife, the protection of natural habitats and the development of educational as well as community conservation programs around the globe.”
Currently, a sign is posted at one of the entrances to Creature Comforts, informing Guests to enter via the other side of the building. Once inside, a black curtain divides the store in half.
It’s difficult to surmise what’s going on behind the curtain, as vision is limited. There is no word from Disney on why Creature Comforts is half closed or what exactly is happening behind the scenes.
