Starbucks to open at Disney's parks

Starbucks is about to perk up "the happiest place on earth." The Seattle coffee chain announced a partnership Monday to open a store inside each of the six Disney properties in California and Florida.

The first will open this summer at Disneyland California Adventure in Anaheim. The other locations will be at the nearby Disneyland Park and at the parks in Orlando — Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

The companies are still finalizing when the remaining stores will open. Starbucks Corp. and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, a unit of the Walt Disney Co., did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.

The companies said each of the Starbucks stores at Disney will be designed to blend in with the property. Passers-by might have to look twice to notice that it's a Starbucks.
