Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration merchandise has proven to be a hot commodity!
And the combination of Disney World’s 50th celebration, Starbucks, and our favorite purple dragon might just make one of our favorite souvenirs, yet!
A classic souvenir to buy is a Disney mug — they put the “fun” in functional. One of our favorite mug collections is the “Been There” series from Starbucks — there’s one for each park (and you can also collect them for various cities, states, and countries around the world)! We previously found the 50th Anniversary “Been There” Starbucks mugs Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom! And now, we’ve spotted them at EPCOT!
We also spotted the EPCOT Starbucks “Been There” 50th Anniversary Mug at Port of Entry, at the entrance of World Showcase. It’s got Spaceship Earth on it…
…as well as a big golden “50,” along with some EPCOT friends that might look familiar…
…like FIGMENT! There are also lots of EPCOT icons, like the Eiffel Tower and an attraction vehicle from Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in the France pavilion, and more.
And of course, Test Track, and Living with the Land were represented.
But we also noticed some new features. It looks like Mary Poppin’s silhouette is floating near the Eiffel Tower, and Moana’s canoe is sailing near Mexico’s pyramid. These icons are hopefully positive hints that the transformation of EPCOT that we’ve been anticipating is quickly approaching! Maybe this appearance of Mary Poppins might mean that the Cherry Tree lane expansion to the UK pavilion is still in the works? Last we heard, it and the Spaceship Earth projects had been postponed. And the Moana canoe must be related to the new World Nature neighborhood including the Journey of Water experience.
If you like this design, you can also get it as an Ornament, or use this tiny mug for your espresso — there’s no wrong answer here!
As with the other Starbucks collections, we expect this will sell out soon. So if you are looking to get your hands on one of these items, you may want to scoot on over to EPCOT! We’re excited to see another addition to this Starbucks collection and stay tuned to DFB for more photos and Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration news!

DFB Sarah says
Archer, we’ve been watching for it. No word on when it will appear; we will report when it does!
Magic Kingdom was released yesterday and Epcot appears to have been pulled (according to a cast member) until the Festival starts.

Does anyone know what the image of the spaceship represents on the 50th Epcot Starbucks mug? We’ve identified all of the images other than this one. Location on the mug Below Mexico Pavillion, to the Left of the Kitchen Kabaret milk jug and above the test track car. Please help us identify what this spaceship is from.
