    Thanks Keith :hug2: still not happy about them coming into the parks at all though - I don't drink coffee and can't stand Starbuck's hot chocolate :shrug:

    So they are just going to put out those pump and serve carafes with burnt coffee? That'll work.

    Totally %&*^ed off about this. I hate Starbucks insipid brew with a passion. I could just about put up with them taking over the provision of coffee in the Main Street Bakery but to take the whole thing over is a bad decision on Disney's part as far as Im concerned. I hope that you are correct Keith that there will be a degree of sympathy, ie: cinnamon buns and ice cream sandwiches being the very least they offer.

    yeah :/ I agree with you completely.

    I got a bit of "attitude" for asking :lol: as if I was mad for worrying that they'd pollute the experience with an imposing brand. We'll see I guess!

    Ok that makes me feel better. That's a good compromise. I only like Starbucks frappacinnos since it makes the burnt taste go away

    To those who are upset about the corporate sponsorship, why? Just about everything at Disney has a corporate sponsor. I remember our first trip in 1996 and was shocked to see Exxon, Kodak, etc all over everything.

    I just wish that Disney would bring back the Douwe Egbert's Coffee that they had when we first went down on a long trip several years ago. At least in most of the TS restaurants one can still get a decent cup of coffee.

    I enjoy a cup of coffee once in a while... maybe 2-3 cups a week however my wife has 2-3 cups a day. The thing about coffee in Disney is that we usually go in August so a hot drink is not something I crave unless its after a nice dinner. The only thing I drink from Starbucks is their lattes... Not a fan if their coffee....I also don't care for Dunkins Donuts coffee but will drink it in a pinch...I find the coffee at the local diners to be much better than the either store. I really hope that WDW doesn't start allowing commercial establishments to open shop in the parks.

    I'm pretty sure I remember Paris having 'illy' brand of coffee, but honestly I don't remember as it was done quite well to the point where I couldn't tell you what coffee they served. All I know is that I wouldn't want coffee in Florida anyway!!

    I looked this up and found that Disney made this statement after the outcry about Starbucks:

    "Here’s some additional information about our Walt Disney World Resort Starbucks locations. The Main Street Bakery will keep its name and theming when it reopens in early summer. It’ll also continue to serve Disney favorites like cookies, brownies and seasonal cupcakes, in addition to Starbucks signature beverages and other items. And for those of you who asked in comments, the cinnamon rolls are available at Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland, and the ice cream sandwiches are available at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, U.S.A."

    So at least we'll still have the goodies we all know and love!

    The full article is here:Link removed by Administrator.

    I was upset when the Penny Arcade was reduced to a retail area because my 4 y/o daughter loves the Pinocchio puppet machine (fortunately we found it in the Frontierland store). I went to the bakery only once so my feelings aren't as strong as many of you other's are.

    But there is one thing that I have noticed when I go go DCA, there are a LOT of people holding Starbucks cups. It's too bad that the bakery is being "sacrificed" but better there than the Coca Cola Cafe where I always make first stop to get a soda and jalapeño-cheese pretzel. ;-)

    Eidian! It's so nice to hear from you! :yes:

    You are right, there are other places that could have caused a bigger stir. Can you imagine if Disney replaced the Dole Whip place with a Starbuck's? :eek:

    Thank you Tink!

    Replacing the Dole Whip stand would've caused a riot. Imagine thousands of angry guests waving their Pirates swords while wearing their Mickey Mouse ears at the front gates.

    What they need to do Coffee wise is serve the coffee they sell in the gift shops- using bottled water of course....Florida water leaves alot to be desired lol.:lol:
