Pick-up your order at the HoneyBee Café at your designated pick-up time.

Please Note: In line with our mission, our Food Service does not offer single-use plastic drinking straws. Our fountain and coffee drinks are equipped with sippy lids for your convenience. For guests who have special needs, we have paper straws available by request only and offer re-usable lid and straw sets that fit aluminum cans available for purchase in our Café and Gift Shop. We encourage guests to prefer to use straws to bring their own reusable drinking straws when they visit.
