Creature Comforts Starbucks Opens in Disney's Animal Kingdom

Starbucks has finally opened its doors at Disney's Animal Kingdom, giving the coffee giant a presence now in all four of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks and at Disney Springs. Now guests will be able to get their fix of premium coffee, lattes, and those scrumptious Frappuccinos no matter where they are during their Disney vacation.

Inside the octagonal building located between Discovery Island and Africa, Disney guests will now be able to grab breakfast and a morning brew at Creature Comforts. The decor uses a color palette of earthy hues, and cleverly placed coffee beans. Lighting elements mimic the popular warrior shield one can find in the dramatic chandeliers of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Two mirrored order queues take up the majority of the floorspace to keep the service moving. That's important at what is what is sure to be a bustling location, now that Pizzafari has stopped offering breakfast. As with several other Disney Starbucks locations, this one lacks a seating area of any sort, which is disappointing.

What is the straw & lid policy? We can not have plastic lids but only paper straws.

As far as I know the iced beverages all get the large domed open-hole plastic lids, with green paper straws.
