I voted yes, however I don't think they should be replacing the eateries, just replace the horrible coffee they have served to date.

No to Starbucks, and they could get rid of McDonald's while they're at it.

In this case, it is great news. Not sure what the commotion is then. And for those that find Starbucks coffee "burnt" or over roasted, get the blonde roast blend, it has the same strength, if not taste, as Dunkin Donuts.

I can't think of one good reason why not. And I don't even like coffee.

They did get rid of McDonalds, except for the stand-alone one near the Allstars resorts.

Disney has always been saying they will be serving Starbucks coffee and specialty beverages and some Starbucks baked goods, and some Disney baked goods (they just have not said WHICH Disney baked goods.) The new announcement is not a change, it is a clarification. Because a LOT of readers apparently misinterpreted the first announcement as stating a Starbucks that looks like one in an airport was going to be plopped right in the middle of Main Street.

All the McD's have been gone for a while.

Talking

There is nothing on this planet that I could possibly care less about. I think Starbucks has hooked into some pocket of the human brain that makes them feel that they are super cool for consuming the Starbucks product. Even if I liked coffee, which I don't, you can bet that I wouldn't purchase it from them, but if others like it, who am I to stand in their way. It doesn't alter my life in any possible way.

Tim Horton's is a Canada wide chain (Like Dunkin Donuts, but with better donuts and better coffee) that is much beloved by most Canadians and in recent years has been making its way into the Northern US.

Here's a picture of the menu at the Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe at DCA, which sells Starbucks:

Cool! Looks like prices for those fancy frappes are $5.50 plus tax. Large coffee appears to be $3.09?

Thanks for your input, it's really appreciated.
