    As you point out, it won't be any different than having Nescafe on Main Street. They won't be wearing green Starbucks aprons. If they change the decor, they won't change the time period. It will be something that both Disney and Starbucks can be proud of, if there is any change at all.

    I've been carrying Starbucks Via packets into the park lately, so, um, yeah. I'm in favor.

    Now can we get "Sunkist, I Presume?" back?
    So full of Disney Magic, my eyes are blue.

    Re: Starbucks on Main Street!

    Im not a huge of Starbucks to begin with. But I really think that corporate america should stay out of something so pure. I think that Disney is trying to hard to bring more people into the park by saying that Starbucks is now there.

    There is something special with the way Disneyland was. I think that Disneyland should stay out of trying to bring more people into the park and keep the people that are in the park happy. KEEP EVERYTHING ORIGINAL!!!!

    Main street is going to lose its charm with a big nasty GREEN starbucks sign in the middle of it.

    I like the idea as (even though I'm not a huge coffee drinker) I've always found Disney coffee lacking. I just hope they continue the tradition of free refills all day w/ receipt. One of the best kept Disney secrets (even better than the Vaction Club ).

    Re: Starbucks on Main Street!

    Starbucks is better than what they have now!! I'd prefer better coffee than Starbucks but I won't be picky! As long as they don't mess up the theming and don't raise prices too much, I support this!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    But Disneyland was FULL of big corperate sponsers when it first opened. Whats the difference now? I think if done right, which Al Lutz suggested would be the case, it would be a perfect subtle addition that would improve the park experience.

    Echoing the sediments here before posted.

    I don't mind Disney pouring Starbucks into Mainstreet, but only on the grounds they remain true to the atmosphere, it will be an instant success, no sense in people brewing about it.

    Completely agreed. They need to be very, very careful.

    I don't think that's what they're planning on doing. The article didn't make it sound like they were.

    If they made is subtle and tastfully done then great. But I would hate to walk into there and see only starbucks coffee mugs being sold and their stupid complations Cd's.

    Starbucks to me is such a waste. I don't understand the point of big coffee places. Im so chill with the hole in the wall places. But alas that is just me.

    If they play modern music and put leather couches in the Market House, I will do something to warrant getting banned from the park. I don't think they ever would, and I actually trust that the powers to be would not do something so extreme, but I am just putting that out there.

    Re: Starbucks on Main Street!

    You act like Starbucks WANTS a modern vibe in this store.

    15th Street Coffee in Seattle serves Starbucks without the Starbucks decor. Why would they want to partner here if they didn't want to do a Main Street period store? They wouldn't - So stop hyperventilating and have a cup of coffee.

    Re: Starbucks on Main Street!

    Not only does Starbucks have to be everywhere, everyone is required to pretend to like the most bitter, over-roasted coffee in the world. And a venti cup of Starbucks coffee contains 415 milligrams of caffeine!
