    Well, I mean not all items are comparable. But some coffee is just artificial flavoring, sugar, fat, and sometimes caffeine. That's obviously not good for you. Not saying a big mac at McDonalds is any better, though. It was probably a bad comparison...but I'm just saying coffee is the greatest thing.

    One a different note, my sister actually works at Starbucks and she likes the coffee (obviously) but she even said it doesn't belong in Disneyland because it doesn't fit the theme

    Actually, the research says that coffee, except in high quantities or unfiltered, isn't that bad. Studies have shown an association between coffee consumption and decreased overall mortality. In high amounts (like more than 2 cups a day), there is an increase in cholesterol build up. But overall, coffee isn't bad for you. It isn't good for you either though. It's just kind of neutral.

    McDonald's, however, was frying everything in oils full of really bad fats and cholesterol. Things that even in small amounts significantly increase your risk of heart disease, artery clogging, atherosclerosis, etc. And they refused to change their practices too, despite many other fast food places changing out those kinds of oils for much better things.

    Good to know, thanks! The reason I wondered is because pastry items that have long been a part of Starbucks now have a little La Boulange sign in front of them. Curious.

    Which theme are you saying is being violated? Coffee has been around for centuries so it would have been available in Small Town America from 1890-1910.

    Actually, some of the more recent studies have shown that up to three cups a day may actually have some health benefit. Any more than that and you start to lose any benefit from the caffeine and start to get into the unhealthy range.

    I don't mind them selling the products, just naming/branding the whole store. Make it so I don't see the word 'starbucks' until I look at the order board and I'm fine with it. (I would be fine with a window sticker/sign saying "Featuring Starbucks products!" or similar.)

    That's actually a really good point. The fat and cholesterol content of those McD's fries probably packs a wallop, but caffeine can do some pretty horrible things to you, too. I guess the loopholes there would be a) there are items at Starbucks that don't actually have coffee and/or caffeine; b) they sold caffeinated coffee before Starbucks got there; it's just a brand change.

    They didnít change the name of the store. They only redesigned the interior. Yes, they placed a Starbucks sign near the door, but because of the foot traffic on Main Street, one would have to be right in front of it to see it. If one were just looking down the street, one would hardly even notice the sign.

    Again, some caffeine actually has some health benefits. The same canít really be said for McDonaldís fries.

    In moderation, for some people, perhaps. Some people react very badly to it, though, and it can also interact with many medications. And then you hear about kids dying of heart attacks because they drank too many Red Bulls or Monsters. Point being, caffeine can certainly have negative effects on people. It's perhaps like red wine; it has scientifically proven health benefits, but it's not necessarily safe for everyone to drink.

    Clearly the recommended amount for a benefit does not apply to people who have adverse reactions to said substance. That is only logical. However, it does not negate the benefits to those without the reaction. Too much of anything can be bad. Too much water inhibits nerve conduction and your heart/lungs stop functioning. Oxygen in too high concentrations is massively flammable.

    This is hardly an argument against having a Starbucks at the parks though.

    Re: What do you think of Starbucks being in Disneyland?

    Columbia love Disneyland too!! As for me being from Seattle, BOOOOO! Worst crap ever. The Mango smoothie is disgusting, no mango taste at all. Why wait an hour in line for Starbucks in DLR when I can walk to one from my house and wait about 3 minutes. Not that I would though!

    I never said it was an argument about Starbucks not being at the park. I am actually fine with that. It was an agreement that caffeine even at recommended doses can have negative health consequences for some people - some of whom might not know they're at risk of adverse effects - so it can be seen as an unhealthy substance for some.

    I also said in my OP that it was a moot point because Disneyland has always served coffee and other caffeinated drinks; they just switched out one brand for another.

    In my opinion, it just doesn't have that old fashioned feeling. Again, my opinion. I'm not saying that coffee is a brand new concept. I am saying, though, that upon stepping inside the building, it's just boring and has no pizzazz. Not saying I lived back then, but it doesn't have the turn of the century, original feeling.

    Apologies. I misread.

    So Starbucks isn't the problem... the problem is the theme of the interior?

    Most stores back then favored function over form so there wasn't a lot of "pizzazz" then either. Following this line of thought, this fits right in.
