They’re finally back!
All of you who love to collect the popular Starbucks “You Are Here” Mugs can now finally add the Epcot Cup to your collection. The mugs are once again being sold in the Fountain View Starbucks location in Walt Disney World’s Epcot.
Starbucks and Disney originally introduced the joint collaboration mugs earlier this year, and debuted versions for Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Epcot. (Disney’s Animal Kingdom will have a mug as well when the new Starbucks planned for that park opens soon.)
However, the Epcot mug was almost immediately removed from the shelves when it was noted that the monorail featured on the mug had a purple stripe in keeping with the cup’s color scheme. Monorail Purple was one of two trains involved in the 2009 fatal accident that took the life of pilot Austin Wuennenberg. After the accident, the train was retired.
When the mugs were removed, Disney and Starbucks promised to return an updated version to store shelves shortly. The new cups, which feature a grey train, went on sale earlier this week.
There’s little doubt that the mugs will be popular with guests and are likely to sell well. If you’re looking to complete a collection, keep in mind that similar mugs are also available for Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
