** AS OF JANUARY 29th, NEW UPDATE**
The Starbucks Epcot Coffee Mug Recall!
Hey y’all! I have an update on those awesome Starbucks coffee mugs that are being sold at Walt Disney World. I hate to report that the Epcot purple mug has been pulled off of the shelves due to the mug’s design which features one of the monorails with a purple stripe on it..
I’m not sure if you remember, but back in 2009 the Purple Monorail was involved in a crash with the Pink one and the pilot of the Purple Monorail was killed, 21 year old Austin Wunnenberg.
The coffee mug, that I reported about a few days ago, is part of Starbucks’ “You Are Here” collection featuring iconic attractions on the mugs.
The Magic Kingdom mug, for example, shows Cinderella Castle, Space Mountain and a teacup from the Mad Tea Party, all colored only in shades of blue, yellow and gray.
But the Epcot mug’s design, which also shows Spaceship Earth, The Land pavilion and several World Showcase landmarks, uses only shades of blue, gray and purple, including a purple stripe on the monorail.
Disney confirmed it was pulling the mug from sales for that reason.
Following the 2009 crash, Walt Disney World retired both the pink and purple colors from its 12-train monorail fleet, adding Monorails Teal and Peach in their place. Disney has also since put new safety procedures and improvements in place on its monorail lines.
