We disagree with this completely. We are looking so forward to it opening to have a real cup of coffee. It has been so difficult to get a good cup of coffee. Yes, there are a very few exceptions. I understand being die hard Disney fans. Our family is one of these, but boycotting this seems extreme.

I won't boycott them

but I won't patronize them either. It simply don't care for their products. It took me a while to get used to Nescafe when they switched from 100% Columbian coffee decades ago but it grew on me.

I know Disneyland and Disney World were funded in a large part by corporate sponsorship so that isn't the issue for me.

I like Starbucks coffee and am thrilled that it will be available in the parks.

Perhaps the last few pages of responses has taught you the benefits of knowing the facts before posting something like this. Complaining about branding in the parks? Oh good grief.

Boycott if you want. That will make the line for my tall iced white chocolate mocha - no whip- shorter.

Oh here we go again.

On a personal note, I could not be more thrilled to find Starbucks coffee in the park. The poor quality of the on-property coffee has been my number one complaint about the resort for years. As an avid Starbucks drinker, I could not be more pleased. As a Disney fanatic - I am also delighted. Having visited and drank/eaten at their location at California Adventure, I was pleased with the theming and the overall feel. It respected the land it was in and the branding was discreet.

The Swan/Dolphin and (I think) SOG have a Starbucks. Other than that you will eventually be able to find Starbucks at one venue in each of the parks. MSB in MK, Fountain View at Epcot (coming this fall). Locations for AK and DHS have not been announced.

Coffee at the resorts (in room and most restaurants) are being changed to Joffrey's brand.

Walt's participation in the 1964 World's Fair showed his acceptance of Corporate partnership, which goes on to this day on attractions (Test Track) , food/drink, etc. Believe I see and am not offended by Siemens sponsorship of Illuminations, and have taken a break in Club Cool. No problem with any branding done in WDW and think such talk of boycotting is misguided and a total waste of time.

I will miss the Main Street Bakery, but will be happy for a decent cup of coffee. Agree with previous posters that sponsorship and partnership has been at WDW from day one, so I'm not bothered by that. My big concern is that my Starbucks will taste like the Orlando water, which tastes nasty to me. Guess we'll see...

I for one am happy to support Starbucks. This year they were ranked as one if the most ethical companies in the world by the Ethisphere Institute. They have many fair trade options and reportedly pay above-market rates for their coffee to ensure people are paid well for their labour. Plus the coffee is way better than Nescafe. I'm not sure where all the hate for this company stems from.
