Disney doesn't have to master all of Starbucks fancy drinks, and they get a hefty share of the profits.

    Not a coffee drinker, but feel that DLR looks too much like the outside world with Downtown Disney and now Starbucks, though before Starbucks opened in DCA, all of the coffee drinkers seemed to complain they couldn't get a decent cup anywhere, or maybe couldn't get the fancy expresso they've been used to.

    It'll probably look something like this:

    Glad I'm not the only one. I think it has something to do with their syrup that they use

    Re: Disneyland's Coffee

    Last time I ordered the Starbucks coffee from Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Cafe, it didn't really do much to wake me up.

    Somehow, Disneyland coffee seems to do that much more efficiently with little effort. Although, I only buy my coffee from Jolly Holiday

    Re: Disneyland's Coffee

    This thread seems empty without *a certain* poster who attacks everyone who likes Starbucks.

    All I care about is that the coffee is good. About 90% of the coffee out there that I try is so bad I think I'd rather drink a cremated relative mixed with hot water. I rely on Starbucks because it's almost always good but can admit that every now and then someone else can really pull a surprise out of their.... Um, recipe book. If someone sells a better coffee than Starbucks I'm all for it. No brand loyalty here, but I will say I do prefer them until someone can beat them. Thanks to some of you, I'll have to pay more attention to what I think of the non-Starbucks brands in the park. Previously I've tried Nescafe's coffee and wondered what my mouth did to deserve this kind of shabby treatment.

    People actually like the Nescafe stuff? O.o

    Re: Disneyland's Coffee

    I honestly think the only coffee I remember drinking at the DLR was at the La Brea Bakery and I think they use a different coffee than the rest of the resort. Nescafe just sounds nasty and processed.

    Re: Disneyland's Coffee

    Starbucks in DCA has been a huge hit. The quality of their coffee or espresso drink is consistently good. Starbucks isn't my favorite coffee - but it's sooooo nice to go into DCA in the morning and know that you're going to LIKE your drink because it's just like what you order every day at your local Starbucks. Furthermore, Disney has done a great job of themeing FF&P to fit in well with Buena Vista Street. It's a major win in my book.

    Re: Disneyland's Coffee

    In blind taste tests, Starbucks has consistently come out lower on the taste scale. If memory serves me correctly, it was 1. Dunkin' Doughnuts, 2. McDonald's...and Starbucks was either 3rd or 4th. Some people might truly like it, but most I think are part of the captive audience.

    Re: Disneyland's Coffee

    So I might be a little biased, I'm from Seattle. I love Starbucks and was really excited to hear about one in the park. But I also think it would be a bad idea to make all the coffee in the park Starbucks, because I know quite a few people who think it tastes like "burned rubber tires." (apparently they eat tires). For as many people who love Starbucks, there are people who hate it. I used to only drink Starbucks, but have expanded my coffee drinking ways, and the straight up coffee ain't great.

    I just think that Disneyland deserves a real coffee taste, and in my opinion Starbucks does not have that "real" coffee taste. It's sweet, and bitter.

    But, to each their own.

    Re: Disneyland's Coffee

    Nescafe is usually associated with instant coffee but I can assure you, the coffee that was being served at the Market House and the now defunked Blue Ribbon Bakery was fresh brewed. (I can't say for sure regarding the mochas etc. at the Royal Street Veranda, but I don't think they were based on instant). I have had various Disney Coffees in my home and brewed them myself. Whoever makes them for Disney...I don't care, I enjoyed them anyway...it seemed like decent coffee to me and I'm not what you would call a rookie coffee drinker by any means. Maybe I'm just not that picky!

    Yes, it's Deja vu all over again. So let's get all worked up over coffee, oh boy.
