Why can't we just wait and see what they're going to do before we start with all the ranting and raving? Walt Disney World & Disneyland have changed many, many times over the years and will continue to do so. So what, if it's largely money-driven, is that really so bad? I mean, if you give guests what they want, they will spend money and come back again to do it over. If not, they will go elsewhere. So, while it may seem mostly money driven, it's also about listening to the guest/customer and what they want.

The Starbucks change is one MANY a Disney fan here and elsewhere have complained about over the years. The stuff they chose to serve was absolutely nasty, and not deserving to be called "coffee". But, now that they're trying to change to something better, some of us go and get our panties in a wad and get all dramatic about them trying to improve something we've complained about. It should be noted that Disney themselves have said the Bakery is NOT going away. Repeat, THE BAKERY IS NOT GOING AWAY! So, why so much drama? Disney has had sponsorships from the very first day that Disneyland opened. In fact, some of the shops actually sold NON-DISNEY related merchandise like women's underwear and tobacco. But, where are those now? They're gone because nobody wants to buy them in the park any more. All I'm saying is, let's give this a chance first, before we start with all the drama and hysterics. Until it's done, we really don't know what it will look like or what they will offer. If we/you don't like it after it opens, then go complain, but to do so before it even starts construction is just plain silly.
I will never understand why the "calm down, wait and see" side cares so much about what the other side thinks or does. Talk about hysteria...your last paragraph seems to be getting a little hysterical to me. I don't recall seeing any posts by anyone who is not happy with the change or signing the petition calling those who are okay with the SB any names. You have your opinion, other people have theirs...I don't think that makes them hysterical whiners......and even if they are, it's no skin off your nose. Seems your panties are in as much of a bunch as anyone else's might or might not be.

It just so happens that I think it's silly to wait until it opens. By then it's too late and someone will surely say...."Well why didn't you say something sooner? It's too late to do anything about it now."
