Just got back Monday from a 10 day trip. My DH and I searched and searched for a mocha frappucino without success. As DLR veterans we could always find them in both parks even before the Starbucks opened. Not sure why WDW does not have any place that serves this. I wish it had been opened during our visit. It will be a great addition to MK. We love the Starbucks at California Adventure.

Honestly, I just wish it were open during my visit, but looks like we'll just miss it.

I'm looking forward to Starbucks coffee being served in the park. It'll be nice when I stumble in for those early EMH!

I don't see the big deal, honestly. It's not like they're slapping some big corporate logo at the top of Space Mountain.

Actually, when Space Mountain originally opened (and for nearly two decades)...



And then came FedEx.

I just realized that I will be able to get a pumpkin spice latte DURING MNSSHP instead of getting a triple venti on the way and making it last all night.

I am not as knowledgeable on the subject as everyone else but I worry what will be next. I don't want Olive Garden or Subway etc. I am more open to that stuff at DTD but not in the parks or resorts. Just me and I realize I am in the minority.

But we already have those kinds of things. Many restaurants are owned by outside companies like Landry's (Rainforest Cafe, Yak and Yeti...)

Starbucks

Disney is tied to many companies, I just hate Starbucks, tastes like the motor oil heated up from my car, and Disney is a Coca Cola only facility just like Universal is Pepsi, don't care for Coke either, so problem is solved by bringing my own coffee and soft drinks. This is easy enough to do, even flying in, if you are staying on sites order from the grocer or make a quick stop at a local grocery store.

If absolutely nothing changed in regards to the name and decor, but overnight Disney subbed out the menu and ingredients at Tony's and brought in the menu from Olive Garden, would you even notice, (except to note an improvement)? As long as these chains don't come in with their huge "anywhere USA" signage and corporate decor, who cares if they churn out food from the kitchen? What is more important: a decent end product made by an employee of Fotune 500 company "A" or an inferior product made by a Disney employee working for Fortune 500 company "B"?

This will be a Starbucks in Main Street Bakery, not MSB in Starbucks. So it won't be a total take over of Starbucks. WDW does a great job of blending stuff into the parks. It will be nice to get a Frap on a hot and humid August morning on our way to the rides.

It's so funny that people are against a chain on Main Street in WDW, but almost the entire Main Street in DLR was made up of stores that were chains or owned/operated by a non-Disney retailer when it opened. And that was with Walt's approval himself! You could buy bras and pianos while walking downs in street.

Just a guess but maybe the OP is actually creating interest in the new corporate partner by posting a "boycott". Otherwise it is a silly argument IMHO.
