I was just at the parks 2 weeks ago and I got thinking about Starbucks now being there. Being from Seattle everyone is always shocked when I tell them that I really do NOT like Starbucks myself and that I don't see the hype around it and personally I think it is WAY overrated. I have never liked coffee myself and so if I were to get anything there it would be hot cocoa.... but something about how they make it just doesn't taste right to me.When I was at the park I felt that the service was best at Jolly Holiday (of the quick service breakfast options). I went in to Fiddler, Fifer, and Practical Cafe twice total, and only because I was in DCA for opening and wanted breakfast, but found it was WAY too busy for my liking considering I wasn't even getting a specialty made anything, I got an orange juice and a cinnamon roll.
So While I don't have an issue with Starbucks being in the parks, I do have an issue when it is the only thing in the front of the park. While I would be fine if none of them were there period I get that a LOT of people like it (hence the insanely long lines). But here is what I hope DCA can do to fix the problem.
- only make people wait in 2 lines if they are actually getting something that is made to order, if they are getting a muffin or cinnamon roll and a bottled drink let them pay and head to a seat
- they need to open another quick service breakfast option in the Hollywood section of the park, whether a small cafe like Blue Ribbon Bakery and Jolly Holiday, or something bigger that has more than just baked goods and drinks, I don't care, just don't have starbucks at it.
- the new ones in DTD need to open at like 5 or 6 am so that those early morning people can get their coffee before they get in the parks and help alleviate the lines at the ones inside the parks.
the line for breakfast shouldn't be longer than the line for a ride.
