    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 hate to break it to you, Disney IS corporate america.

    What purity are you talking about? Disney is a leader in Corporate America.

    Re: Starbucks on Main Street!

    As much as I love starbucks, I believe that they should leave anything that isint Disney outside the parks. I mean I would rather give Disneyland 8 Dollars for a Coffee instead of 6 At Starbucks. "Hmm thinks to self scratching head" Changes mind, Eh Let em in. It just better not Mess with the face of Main Street. Disney Has a Store that sells tons of Coffee Why not sell disney Brand Coffee, with a taste comparable to Starbucks? Use Donalds likeness and Call it StarDucks. I dunno it just rolled off my tounge.

    I say they go for Dunkin' Donuts or McDonalds coffee instead.

    I don't really know about taste, I think it is subpar coffee as well, but my family swears by the coffee, along with the millions who apparently enjoy it as well. This move should make the line for the Market House rival the line for Gibson Girl. How much of it is the Starbucks "experience" though? For example, you can get better thrills than Disneyland at Six Flags (just grant my connection of taste to thrills for a second), but you don't get the Disney experience anywhere else in Southern California.

    Great!

    Why not have them fix up the Fantasyland Skyway Chalet and Carnation Plaza Gardens as coffee venues as well, so Walt's Disneyland gets something too!

    I like Starbucks, but I really hope they stick with Disney cups. People walking down Main Street with Starbucks cups just doesn't seem right to me.

    OK. But the Skyway Chalet is up a hill and will need a whole redwood deck wrapped around it.

    Says who? I do not recall Walt lamenting the inclusion of corporate sponsors. In fact, EPCOT was going to be even bigger on corporate involvement.

    EPCOT was going to be a business park, where you could have a desk job for a corporation within the development.
