I do, too, but the train was just impossible. The lines were atrocious and there was nowhere to put the people. The ice cream area had something like 4 2-top tables and that was IT. I loved them, but as a food service place they had to go.

Apparently a HUGE difference for some people

Seriously, I just don't understand the Starbuck hate. Also, I wish people would really do a little bit of research before making comments. They're not removing Main Street Bakery, it's THE SAME SHOP but with Starbucks coffee instead of Nestle.

I'm not sure where all the hate for this company stems from.
Where does the hate come from? From rumors and lies spread by people online who forward and share hate propaganda without researching to find out if what they are spreading is true or not. And there will always be people who hate big business (though likely not the same people who vacation at Disney!)

I'm also thrilled to have Starbucks at Disney. I go every year, and I suffer through my morning caffeine fix. Last year, I brought the Starbucks instant coffee packs with me. I got hot water in the CL and made my own coffee. I can't wait to watch the parade with a good cup of coffee in my hand this summer!

Why the Starbucks hate, anyway? Worried about overpriced food and drink in Disney? Spoiler alert: it's too late.

My DH will be happier with Starbucks than Disney's regular coffee. At DL, we stopped in the mid-afternoon for an iced coffee - it was better than another diet coke.

While I'm not a big Starbucks fan I have no problem with it being in the parks. I personally don't like their coffee as I grind organic beans fresh and make it in a french press so no coffee shop coffee can compare to that, but whatever. Lots of people enjoy Starbucks so its a wise choice for Disney.

A random tip...freeze leftover coffee in ice cube trays and when you want a frappy just add them in a blender with some milk, sugar, and chocolate syrup. A great way to save the leftover coffee that just gets dumped down the drain.

Sounds great! I always have leftover coffee as I'm the only one in my house that drinks it!

You can order a french press from Starbucks. It is $4-5 for a 20 oz french press. If we are lucky they will also offer it at the MK location! No "to-go" option obviously. I also make coffee with a french press, it is so much better! My brother roasts his own beans, occasionally he sends me some. Otherwise I use Starbucks Verandah (I like light roasts).

Looking forward to grabbing an iced mocha on an Orlando August morning. Saw the sign posted in another thread and it looks like it was done tastefully, in keeping with the theme of Main St.

Its a Disney shop...selling starbucks coffee. How is that any different than before when it was a Disney shop...selling Nestle Coffee?
This. People are freaking out over nothing. If the BAKERY is still the same. .. why are people freaking out over this? Is it because some people just don't like CHANGE?

IN MY OPINION....Anything is better than that crappy Nescafe. I drink 3 cups of coffee a day...2 in morning and 1 in afternoon...... This is great news for me. Plus...... i can still get my Main Street Bakery Cinnamon Roll while drinking MUCH better coffee

I personally can't wait to get a Mocha Light Frappuccino on a hot Disney Morning, I suffer the terrible coffee syndrome when we are at Disney! We will be there on opening day. I am looking forward to it!
