    I think Disney marketing is making a big mistake by cheapening the brand. The cheap stuff from China does not appeal to me, and I don’t think other people like it either. Besides, if they maintain high standards for most of their art and souvenirs and whatnot they can pawn off the cheap stuff for high prices by virtue of association.
    On the other hand, I applaud their upgrade of Main Street and the Mark Twain ride. The heart and soul of Disneyland, these attractions need refurbishment to stay fresh. I especially approve of the new Starbucks on Main Street, although my wife loved getting all day refills at the old venue. And the best coffee I ever had was a cup I got there to watch the parade one afternoon. Disneyland means a lot to my family. In May, when my niece’s daughter, a 3 year old, visits for the first time, it will mark 5 generations in my family that have attended Disneyland. As a loyal original guess on hand for the opening of Disneyland and Carsland, I am also concerned about the crowds. It’s hard to enjoy Disneyland when it’s packed to the gills year round. It’s simply not worth the $1,000 I paid for my premium passes. I’m seriously considering passing on my pass next year, especially when the cost has risen to $650 a year per pass.

      You especially approve of the Starbucks, but you went on to say that current store provides you free refills and also gave you the best cup of coffee, ever? And why do you especially approve of Starbucks, then?

    So they’re making a huge Starbucks to — accommodate strollers?

    We have a Starbucks on every corner here in suburban Portland, Oregon. Provides employment for recent college grads. Most of our baristas have four-year degrees and whopping loan debt. I hope the tie-in works both ways — I would so love to see Disney in Starbucks!

    Just want to say thanks for the update, especially like the photo’s from Dave Smith’s presentation, as we don’t get to do things like that anymore, we had to give up our Annual passes with the price gauging! Also I do appreciate Starbucks coming into the park, but I am perplexed while they will need such a large space to take over Disneyana!
