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.

I hope they keep the old cinnamon rolls.
I thought I heard those will be selling in FantasyLand.

Meh. This whole thing has been a tempest in a coffee pot. Run as many polls, threads and petitions as you like, this is a done deal. It is going to happen whether we like the idea or not.

Me? Can't get upset by one more sponsorship deal with a major corporation since it has been commonplace since Day 1 at DL. Can't get upset by modifications to the number and types of goods offered in the bakery, since that has changed over time too. And Disney may be a lot of things, but stupid isn't one of them. Who would really think that they would knowingly plunk a regular Starbucks themed building smack in the middle of Mainstreet? If they didin't do it for McDonalds, why would people think they would do it now?

I'm not thrilled down to my baby toes by the thought of being able to buy Starbucks coffee inside the parks - I don't particularly like their coffee. But at least it bears a passing resemblance to what a decent cup of coffee should taste like, so I may buy the occasional cup (as long as the predicted long lines don't extend all the way to the train station).

Are we really still going on about this? The countless threads, whining, and petitions are really starting to drive me nuts. Its happening. Get over it.

Perhaps we should start a new poll - Who wants to stop reading about people complaining in all the over dramatized threads about Starbucks?

Serving Starbucks at Disney for those that enjoy it is fine with me. I don't personally like their coffee as it has a *burned* taste to me, so we bring and make our own.

I would rather that they *serve* it rather than have a Starbucks that mostly serve their products, especially if they change MSB a lot, or quit serving the pastries that we enjoy so much. But, other than that, I have no issues with it.

I voted for the closest option, but none were really right for me. I'm happy to see it come in (don't really enjoy many of the current MSB offerings), but I don't "love Starbucks".

I voted no but not because its overrated but because I DO NOT want it to replace MSB!!!!!! I cant believe they would replace such a staple with a "brand", Why not build a special spot for a new starbucks not replace a beloved spot!

I think there is certainly a place for corporate sponsorship if it is done tastefully, and it sounds as though Disney has this in mind. Some things are just done better by outside sources. What would DTD be without the Ghiradelli shop?

We Just returned from our first trip to Disneyland.We go to WDW at least four times a ear and thought we would go see disneys older sister.

We went to the Starbucks location at California Adventure and it was great. There is not a big Starbucks sign or anything to take away from the Disney magic, the cafe has its own disney name. Inside you can order the usual Starbucks goodies and they even had some deserts especially for Disney. We had a fancy cupcake there that was best of our vacation. The option to get a nice latte is great but if you don't like Starbucks than you can just pass by. It's very popular, all over the park people were carrying Starbucks and even would park jump just to go grab one.

So this is just my experience on the Starbucks. Disney will tie care to integrate Starbucks nicely in WDW like they did in California. If you like Starbucks, you will enjoy having it on your trip. if you don't then walk by.

I am going to lay down in front of the bakery when the bulldozers start moving in!

Brunette, your poll is fine and adding Starbucks coffee to the menu at MSB is also fine!

Hey Bullseye! Thank you! How are you? I hope you voted. This poll was more for fun than anything really "serious".

Hope you are doing fantastic!

Anyway............

I'm excited for this change. It will be nice not to have to go off property for a decent cup of coffee. Knowing what we know about the DCA location, knowing that MSB isn't actually closing and only getting Starbucks added, it's a welcome change. Disney has finally listened to it's patrons about their very limited (and terrible!) coffee options and are doing something about it.
It's kind of amusing to watch the hysteria though. And I for one am happy at the thought of coffee that doesn't taste like crap.

MSB needed tweaking anyway. The cinnamon rolls were OK, but hardly worth all the crying that's going on now. Plus, you can still get many of these items elsewhere in the park. This may involve more walking, which I think some people are upset about as well.

More choices are always great. From what it looks like, it will be a nice balance of Starbucks and Disney.
