I don't care.

Either I'll eat/drink there or I won't.

It changing it's cofee really doesn't make me feel any sort of emotion at all.

Stuff changes, that's life.

My answer is, I don't mind that they came to the park. I do wish...wish, mind you....that they were placing the one at Magic Kingdom somewhere else besides Main Street Bakery.

I am not opposed to corporate sponsorship, either.

To me, this is like when they renamed Comiskey Park to US Cellular Field. It felt really weird.

I cannot see how Starbucks fits into the theme of turn-of-the-century Main Street, USA, either.

I agree with freshmanjs, which is why I'm not voting. But I will comment.

1. I love Starbucks
2. I love the Main Street Bakery

If they are adding Starbucks coffee to the Main Street Bakery, I'm happy with that. At first I thought they were replacing the bakery. As long as they aren't doing that, I'm good.

And either way, I'd be buying an iced or frozen coffee. I don't drink hot coffee in hot weather. I don't think I've ever had hot coffee in Walt Disney World.

And what's the "fountainshop" in Epcot?

Neither does Vinylmation, Corn Dog Nuggets or Light Up Toys, but they sell plenty of those on Main St.

I voted Yes because I love good coffee in the morning. I really do think it is going to be a change for the better and will still keep the ambiance of Main Street.

I'm happy. I love coffee, I love Starbucks and I love Disney. Happy to get them in the same place.

I answered "I don't care" because I don't care what brand of coffee they serve, however, I do care if they are going to change Main Street bakery so much that it loses it's "Disney" feel in lieu of a Starbucks feel.

And I also care if they get rid of the cinnamon buns and ice cream sandwiches.

Having now read the actual blog post, I am going to hold back official opinion until I visit. It is more than just adding coffee. The bakery is getting refurbed. It will maintain a Main Street theme, but will serve Starbucks bakery items as well as coffee.

I hope they keep the old cinnamon rolls.

I am very happy I love Disney and I love a good coffee so this to me is a very good match. Good coffee is something I have missed while vacationing at DIsney World.....It has been kind of a running joke between my husband and I.....we always "treat" ourselves to a good Tim Hortons coffee once we cross the border back into Canada post trip....kind of soothes my Disney depression a bit....for a moment.....then not so much.....when do I get to go back honey?!?!?

I didn't vote because my position is not represented in the poll and nothing really comes close. There should be an option for: "Yes, if the building remains faithful to the historic appearance of Main Street". I don't know why that is such a controversial suggestion and I don't see this as being an "attack" on the poll or OP. And if that were one of the options, I suspect that it would be the runaway winner.

People have been complaining about the coffee at Disney for years. I am certainly not a Starbucks junkie, but if Disney will be offering real coffee in more locations around the parks...then I'm a happy camper. It's a heck of a lot better than having to bring a coffee maker along on vacation-an option that I have actually read about a lot of people doing.

Would it have been nice if they'd found a way to do it themselves...sure. But Disney is all about branding. They sell their stuff everywhere-from the parks to stores all over the world. I'm not surprised that they are smart enough to outsource something that they are currently failing at when they realize there is a market for it.

And from what I've read, there will still bakery items that we recognize sold there or at other locations througout MK.
