I really don't. I was so against the news when it came out, and still am.

Personally, it goes against everything that the parks, especially MK, stand for.

There's always been "sponsorship" so that really is nothing new. My problem is that I just can't stomach their coffee.

given that DW coffee is mostly swill I am happy about it BUT
 
I don't like that it is taking over the Mains Street Bakery!

I don't have a good suggestion for another place though.

I'm glad they found a new sponsor for the Main Street Bakery. I'm not a real fan of Starbucks coffee, which tastes burnt to me, but its got to be better than the Nestle product.

I hate that Starbucks is taking over MSB....but I can't complain about Starbucks being more present in the parks! I like their coffee (I think I'm a rarity there ;)) and to be able to soon stand on Main Street in view of Cinderella Castle with a skinny vanilla latte in hand? You will never see a happier chick!

People are (I think rightfully) upset about S'bucks replacing MSB, but think about this- S'bucks is a pretty decent company for Disney to partner with. They do a lot for the communities they do business in, and at a corporate level. They opened a roasting plant in a small town in Georgia so people could go back to work, they have a foundation called "Indivisible", and do an annual Month of Service where they encourage their employees and "guests" to partake in community service projects. I think that's a part of why they two companies decided to go in together. May not help to soften the blow for nostalgia, but might help on some level!
