POLL - Should Starbucks be at Walt Disney World?

With all the debate going on about Starbucks and Disney, should SB's replace Mainstreet Bakery and the fountainshop at EPCOT?

EDITED TODAY NOVEMBER 12th to INCLUDE THIS:

There are specials going on at Starbucks BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!

YES FREE!

Free coffee alert! Tomorrow, Starbucks will launch four days of buy-one-get-one action to promote their seasonal holiday beverages. From 2 to 5 PM, you can go in with a friend and score an extra peppermint mocha, gingerbread latte, eggnog latte or carmel brulee latte and get another one for free. The giveaway runs from November 15 to the 18. The real question? How many free coffees can you drink in that sort time span?

Have a Magical Day!

the poll is terribly constructed. first of all, the main question does not reflect the plan. it talks about replacing MSB with Starbucks. That is not the plan.

Secondly, there should be options like "Not if it is going to look like a standard starbucks store" and "yes, if it is really well themed and continues to serve the pastries i like"

FreshmanJS, please, if you don't like someone's poll, just ignore it or create your own. It's been awhile since I've made one, but if it's still the same as it was, the options cannot be modified once created.

Thank you Twinklebug. All her posts are ad hominem attacks.

What's the difference between Starbucks and McDonalds? Other than McDonalds is no longer in any of the parks or DTD. The photos I have seen of the DL Starbucks looks promising.

I am pretty certain that this is the plan and I think it's a great thing. I'll be happy to be able to have a good cup of coffee with my pastry while walking down Main St in the morning.

No to Starbucks, and they could get rid of McDonald's while they're at it.

Disney is famous for miserable coffee. Starbucks coffee at MSB is a good thing!

I don't understand why everyone is in such an uproar! I mean I'm not happy about it either but it really doesn't matter how we feel about it, IT WILL HAPPEN! I think while its sad we should accept it and move on!
