    I like the look a lot. I wonder how they will layout it all out with the Disneyana shop removed.
    Will it reopen next month?

    The party line phones and pot belly stove will be there, as well as a new book store themed seating area where Disneyana used to be.

    So the Market House is retaining it's name and the warm, Victorian look of a hometown market, it's just being plussed with much better coffee options. The interiors are sure to be great. Stove, party line phones, and even checkboard table all remaining. It's also being plussed with the addition of seating (which is sorely lacking on Main Street) in a newly bookstore themed area called "The Book Rest" (horrible name though).

    I'm actually really looking forward to the new bookstore themed seating area...the stove, checkers, and phones almost make more sense in that type of environment. It's just funny how many people really thought Disney would just build a regular Starbucks on Main Street when we had the richly themed FF&P right across way on BVS to serve as a counter example. This looks to be even cozier, which makes sense as FF&P is supposed to have the more open look of old 1920/30 cafes and cafeterias that used to dot areas like Downtown LA in the time period.

    That looks really nice. Although I hope it doesn't end up like FF&P cafe. Lots of nice details but because of its size, too much of it is spread thin leaving lots of...boring in between.

    Is it better to artificially keep the place small and with low demand by serving crappy coffee that no one wants? To me this is sort of the best of a bad situation. DL needs a coffee company that: people want, that is actually decent, and can be made quick enough to keep up with demand. SB is really the only one who fits all the criteria and unfortunately, with it comes a need for more space. You know, sometimes making money and making people happy aren't mutually exclusive. Not all profitable decisions are motivated solely by greed.

    The Book Rest? Meh. The Book Nook or Book End Tables.

    Shucks. Here in Portland, Oregon we've got one of these every few blocks! And they ALL have huge lines. Fastpass for coffee, anyone?

    Corporate greed? This thing looks almost the same as it did before, just more open to deal with larger lines, because people are going to actually want a coffee. Why do you think Disney chose Starbucks? It's because like Disney, Starbucks delivers the same product and service each time, it's reliable, so people spend their money. I like the look, and I think it fits Main Street perfectly. I'm also excited to see the new seating area.

    You knew it when - Disneyland attracted 15,000 guests a day and didn't need fast food type queues for it's food offerings. At 30,000+ per day they do.

    If you'd like they could raise the ticket prices to $250 per day to cut way down on the number of guests...of course that would be sooooo greedy.

    Have to say I agree with Wiggins on this one, if you've spent any amount of time at WDW's Magic Kingdom . . . a lot less charm as many of the stores have these impersonal barn spaces, and I think MK's design aesthetic kinda was being followed with the Pigs Cafe, which while it has some details, the size of the place destroys any sense of intimacy or a 192/30s world.

    Great they are bringing back the potbelly stove, but fewer details than a Cracker Barrel?

    I wouldn't be so fast to attribute the change to corporate greed/commercialism, just not enough time/money for WDI to create something unique. Over the decades, the Market House's character has been kinda chipped away.

    There are a lot of creative ways to get around the capacity/intimacy issue. One easy solution would have been to build a common kitchen/food prep/storage area for the Market House, and have 3 distinct port of entries for guests: a cozy Market House with the clutter of antiques we love, a Main Street alley behind-the-shop window for coffee, and a formal turn of the century coffee house in an adjacent building, same menu as far as coffee goes, but different feel.

    You can see they attempted this with the Pig Cafe and Clarabell's, which are really just part of the same mega-store.

    I think it looks nice and am glad the phones and pot bellied stove will still be utilized.
