The Power of Walt DisneyMany people visit Walt Disney for the fun and excitement of discovering Hidden Mickey's. However, that is not the only thing hidden throughout Disney Parks.
Hidden McDonaldsSimilar to Starbucks, the fast-food giant McDonalds rely's heavily on its brand identity. When driving down any street in America, or even the world, one would expect to see McDonald's famously recognized Golden Arches along a store's pylon sign, or on their storefront.
This is true all across the world...except in Disney World; where magical pixie dust can wipe away most company's desire to have their company brand, logo, or image displayed along their storefront windows.
McDonalds has had stores throughout Disney Parks for many years now, but similar to Hidden Mickey's, the famous Golden Arches are mysteriously gone. See photos below

Starbuck's Storefront Signage in Disney WorldStarbucks recently announced on Monday that they have entered into a partnership with Disney World to open a retail store inside each of the six (6) Disney theme parks located in California and Florida. From this partnership, both companies can benefit:
Benefits for Starbucks:
- Prime real estate for retail store
- Limited competition from competitors such as Dunkin Donuts
- Large customer base
Benefits for Disney World:
- Guests can go straight to Disney Parks without stopping off at other locations for breakfast
- Improved quality of coffee at the Disney Parks
At Disneyland California, Starbuck's will open up stores under the name of Fiddler, Fifer, and Practical Cafe, after the characters in the Three Little Pigs.
Although the Starbucks logo will not be displayed along their storefront, the Starbuck's name will be listed vertically on storefront posts on both sides of the coffee store entrances.
