That is obscene! I'm sure they'd justify it by saying it was in response to "guest demand." If I want to go to Starbucks, I can stay in Ohio. Honestly, what is going on?

They already announced today that Epcot's Fountain View will be Starbucks-ized as well as the MS Bakery.
Thanks for your wonderful suggestion - Boardwalk Bakery!
Guess we will have to trade in our Boardwalk DVC points.
We don't do Starbucks in UK, particularly as they seek to avoid paying their share of UK taxes.
Guess Disney can earmark every corner on Disney property and stick a Starbucks there to match every where else

No way, too many DIS/DVC friends out there

Just avoid the coffee shops.

OK, so I'm responding to my own post but I just wanted to re-state the point here. Walt opened DL with lots of attractions and shops sponsored by outside companies. On Main Street in DL at one time or another there were shops sponsored by:
  • GAF (film)
  • Elgin (timepieces)
  • Hallmark (cards)
  • Carnation (ice cream parlor)
  • Sunkist (citrus beverages and sweets)
  • Hollywood-Maxwell Brassiere Company (yes, bras)

They were all themed to fit in with Main Street. I see no reason that a Starbucks can't be themed to blend in as well. They did it at DCA.

I hate the idea of possibly loosing the main street bakery. I'll keep hoping that they keep more Disney than Starbucks but I won't hold my breath.

As for the fountain view in epcot, I actually think that is a great idea. When I was in high school I remember eating pizza there. High school was a while ago for me, and I haven't been back to the fountain view since. Putting in another location besides the land where we can get breakfast in epcot sounds like a good idea to me, and I bet in that location they get a lot of post illuminations traffic too! The ice cream shop there now is eddys I think, so just swapping out one brand for another, right next to coke and club cool...

True, but being sponsored is different from what's happening here. The bakery will BE a Starbucks. Does a modern day company fit in with the theme of the land?

Oh! Touché!

But was that the early 1900s that Main Street is modeled after?

Starbucks is just another vendor, like Mc Donalds. It is really a logically place for it. I personally get coffee before I hit the parks. I am not up for a $22.00 cup of ground tree parts and Florida's finest water with some white hydrogenated vegetable oils on top.

They oldest train was built in 1916, not exactly the early 1900's, and the youngest was built in 1928. I also do not think that the town of Marceline had an Asphalt paved Main Street.

Where do you get coffee from? Just curious.

The Swan/Dolphin (We have refillable mugs ), Mc Donalds, Press Pots, or we bring our own.

The whole reason I visit Disney World is precisely to get AWAY FROM the outside world, and enter make-believe. The LAST THING I want to see on my trip is a Starbucks on Main Street.

Really, is this the best that WDW can offer?

Let me ask you all something...

What is up with Disney not being able to brew its own kick-butt fresh ground coffee? It's not rocket science. For goodness sakes, we have Soarin' and we can't get something as simple as fresh brewed coffee and coffee drinks?

Before I'd allow a Starbucks I would put a commercial Keurig machine in Main Street Bakery and call it a day.

Quite simply...I'm disgusted with this. The magic is slowly disappearing.
