On Monday, Disney announced the first of six planned Starbucks locations is scheduled to open at Disney California Adventure park in June. More locations are planned at Disneyland park and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Parents pulled by kids through Disneyland may finally see their dream come true. It's a small dream, but still a dream - a name brand cup of coffee.

It's MORNING EDITION.
