Do you boycott all the other companies with a presence in the park? If you are going to boycott something, shouldn't it be Disney since they brought Starbucks into the park, not the other way around?

Seriously?

Let us know how that works out for you. And make sure to steer clear of all of the attractions that are sponsored by a particular brand as well...might be a pretty boring trip.

Disney can't win. People complain to no end about how awful coffee is at Disney (and it is)...so they bring in a popular brand to answer the cries and are beat up over that.

{Sigh}

I, for one, will be walking down Main St

Go slurp down a DOLE WHIP and calm down. Was the Bakery any worse off when it was sponsored by Sara Lee? Did you boycott Pecos Bill's when it was sponsored by Frito Lay? Did you ever see Monsanto's CircleVision 360? Eastern Airlines' "If You Had Wings"? Goodyear's Speedway? We could go on for days and days.

I don't care how much starbucks coffee they sell at Disney - we, personally don't like the burned taste of their coffee so don't drink it - bring my own 'Community' coffee.

But, I would have liked the MSB to stay the way it was - just loved the feel of it. Probably will not be going there regardless as it seems they will no longer have what I went there for - the yummy cinnamon roll (and no, eating one at Gaston's Tavern is not the same). Tried it, it's yummy, but loved our tradition of getting it at MSB.

So, no, boycotting it is not my thing - anyone who likes their starbucks can get it with no issues from me.

I'm sad about them replacing Main Street Bakery with Starbucks, it's just not going to be the same; I hope they will still serve the cinnamon buns and other treats they had before.

Wasn't the Carnation restaurant one of the first restaurants at DL?

I simply do not understand the pure hatred for the Starbucks brand. I hope that the people who are so against Starbucks being in the park haven't eaten at Casey's Corner (they have Coca-Cola written in their lighting fixtures) Never used a park map, or met Mickey or the Princesses at Town Square, since this is (was now) sponsored by Kodak. And the list goes on.......

I find it amusing that people have a problem with a corporation coming into Disney World when you cannot get a bigger corporation than Disney itself.

Not gonna happen! Lol! I don't see the big deal! I love coffee, not a big Starbucks fan but as long as the food offerings are the same or better most ppl will not care!!

I think boycotting disney would make more sense OP...

I have to say, I'm excited to see how this pans out! Shoot, I'm pretty sure my delicious ham egg and cheese croissant won't be back and I'm still excited to see what they do with the new bakery/Starbucks! And I'm not a huge Starbucks fan. I agree their regular coffee is very acidic ("burnt" as its been called). When I do get their coffee, I order a latte, short, and add a bit of milk to it. It's the perfect size and ratio of coffee to milk for me.

What difference does it make? Should every brand be removed from the parks, or made all "Disney" brands? Seriously? I'll be happy to have coffee that is actually drinkable. I don't particularly care for most of their roasts (blonde is good) but I do love mochas.

I don't drink coffee so maybe my opinion isn't worth much, but DBF loves coffee and is happy about it. He's not necessarily a huge Starbucks fan but he's happy to have choices. He hates the in room coffee. We've even considered upgrading to a suite for use of the Keurig! I'm sure there are also people who love the in room stuff and hate Starbucks, but its nice that there are options.

DBF often refers to me as a "Disney purist" because I get so worked up whenever anything in the parks changes from what I remember (though I reluctantly realize that the constant change is what makes Disney so great). However, I have no problem with the addition of Starbucks because each location's design is respective of the theming of that area.

Any chance they're putting any Starbucks locations in the resorts? Or even just the coffee?

While I disagree with the OP's sentiments, I think she isn't upset about corporate presence/branding. I think she's worried that it's going to be a "Disney-themed Starbucks" where they sell lousy Starbucks brand pastries/sandwiches instead of the same Main Street Bakery with all the same goodies and it just happens to sell Starbucks coffee now.

Either way it isn't worth "boycotting". I save boycotts for actual moral issues.

But it isn't going to be like that. Given how much information has come out about it, including the DCA location as an example, people need to put this issue in perspective. It's one corporation bringing in another. Given the constant complaints about Nescafe, it's a welcome change. If people don't like Starbucks, don't drink it. No one is being forced and there are plenty of other options through the parks for people to have.
