    Thanks for the updates!

    One of the biggest problems with Disney’s food service is slow service, particularly during busy periods. (It took 45 minutes to get a couple of cups of hot chocolate at the Jolly Holiday on Tuesday night.) I shudder to think about how long it will take to get a latte or even a cup of coffee in the new Starbucks shop. Based on past experience, I could walk out to Downtown Disney and get a cup of coffee in a fraction of the time it would take to get one inside the park. And I could probably take the tram to the parking structure, get my car, drive to the nearest drive-thru Starbucks for a latte and still be back faster than I could get an order from a Disney Starbucks.

      I agree, it is very poor, but hopefully Starbusks will improve the speed of the service.
      Have to say your last sentence made me chuckle.

    It will be interesting to see what happens at the Market House. That is one of our favorite stops and we love the quaint look (and, of course, free coffee refills!). I hope they leave the keep that same look and feel when Starbucks comes in.
