That's what I'm hoping for. Just have a sign that says that they sell Starbucks, but don't change the name, theme, and everything else about it. And don't get rid of everything on the menu to put Starbucks in. Sort of like at DCA.

I don't even like coffee from Starbucks. But as long as they don't stop calling it the Main Street Bakery and still sell the items that had to be removed somewhere else at WDW, then I'm ok with it.

It's quite simple to check, actually. On the main board, where all the threads are listed, to the right is the number of replies (which is underlined). Click on that underlined number and up pops a small box with all the posters in the thread and how many posts each poster has.

Basically this thread can be summed up in a dozen comments:

1) Disney has "sold out", letting big corporations on Main St
2) Walk would be devastated/rolling in his grave
3) Starbucks is a greedy corporation that has no right being on Main St
4) Where am I going to get my cinnamon roll and/or ice cream sandwich from now?
5) I don't want to see a neon green Starbucks sign on Main St and/or Main St should remain a turn of the century feel"
6) Starbucks is the worst coffee I've ever tasted. It's burnt, expensive and those who drink it are snobs.
7) The magic will be ruined if I see a Starbucks cup
8) What's next a (insert brand here, including McDonald's) inside the castle?

And on the other side of the "argument"

9) I love Starbucks and I can't wait to get it in the World.
10) Have you seen the photos of DCA? It's going to look amazing!
11) Finally, a decent cup of coffee in WDW, they've finally listened to their patrons
12) I can't wait to have a (insert drink of choice here) while watching the parade/walking down Main St/of a morning

And to sum absolutely every single one up in a single sentence...... (envisioning drum rolls here)

13) ALL THIS OVER A CUP OF COFFEE AND PASTRIES?

I think this Starbucks topic has well and truly gone around in a million circles and gone no where. :lol: Time will tell how this all turns out. Until we get more information from Disney or it officially opens, everything else has (more than likely) already been said. WDW will still be the most magical place on earth, especially for the true fans.

Step 14) Repeat steps 1-13 (Seriously, get to going before the other class mates come and start doing it for you)

". . .some people starting singing it NOT KNOWING WHAT IS WAS"

Every time we get to this point in the thread, where people have calmed down and vowed not to speak on it anymore and people are cracking random jokes. . . someone from somewhere in the DIS abyss comes along and say's something like "well my 2 cents. . ." or "I just don't get. . ." or (my personal fav) "I haven't read the previous (insert however many pages we are at at that point) but. . .". These comments, which are always just repeats of things that have bee said a zillion times, then cause everybody to come back and re-state, re-iterate and re-hash the entire thing. So yeah, you guy's ready? Altogether now "This is the song that ever ends. . .[I can't hear you!]. . ."

That's for summarizing this, and the responses to each concern are

1) Main Street USA has always been heavily sponsored by big corporations
2) Walt said that the parks would be ever-changing and presided over the parks when similar changes happened in the past
3) Starbucks is a far less greedy corporation than Nescafe, the coffee company they're replacing
4) All the items currently at the Main Street Bakery will either be still there or can already be found elsewhere in the park
5) There is no neon green Starbucks sign where Starbucks was introduced into Disneyland. The bakery will remain themed to the turn of the century
6) Starbucks coffee used to taste burnt. They changed their coffee years ago an it is no longer that burnt tasting coffee. Judging people by the coffee they drink is snobbish
7) The magic is what is inside of you so if it is ruined then you're ruining it, not a cup of Starbucks coffee
8) This is actually a very good question that probably does deserve its own thread. I like the idea of thinking about replacements like the Nescafe Starbucks replacement that we'd like to see.
