    Yeah i was thinking the same thing. Like two different places.

    Thumbs down Re: Starbucks finally opens on Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland Park

    Even though I haven't seen the new layout in person yet, I can only judge by the photos I've seen. And sadly, I'm not impressed with the new look. As I feared from the beginning, it has too much of a modern theme to me. The charm of the old Market House is completely gone. Perhaps I'll have a different opinion once I get to see it all in person. I just think Starbucks is a bit "over kill" at the Disneyland Resort now. Between DCA, Disneyland and the soon-to-be one in Downtown Disney. Personally, Disney should just have the one at Downtown Disney and get rid of the two in both theme parks...they're not needed. (sigh)

    Thanks Fishbulb for the pictures! Not a coffee drinker myself so I don't think I'll ever step inside, but from the pictures I think the new Starbucks location looks great! If I read your report correctly, the seating area has no doors to and from Main Street? So if you want to exit, you have to go back towards the entrance? I wonder why they did that? Seems like that's going to cause a bit of traffic inside.

    I must agree that it looks like a Starbucks where the local planning commission said it had to look "old timey" to fit with their misunderstanding of the town's urban design.

    But the AutoCAD templates said "Victorian" on their description!

    Not to pick on DisneyFunGuy, but his quote points out an argument I've seen before about the "too much Starbucks" debate. I ask you, how many places sell Coca Cola in DLR? Why don't they just have one in Downtown Disney and get rid of the others in both theme parks... they're not needed.

    I'm not too familiar with the old Market House.

    were there openings connecting it with the adjoining shops?

    it doesn't look like there are in the new layout.

    Yep. Just looks like a modern Starbucks trying to be "Old" looking and not doing a very good job of it. The old Disneyana area is done well for what it is.

    I don't think the analogy fits. Coca Cola doesn't move into Main Street U.S.A. and turn the small-town general store Market House into a mall food court that looks like it's been decorated by theater arts students hired by the local Chamber of Commerce, none of whom bothered to research the period they were recreating.

    Coke is sold as a beverage in all the restarurants. But how many full-fledged "Coca-Cola Stores" are there in the Park?
