  • News According to today's Register Starbucks is NOT coming to the parks!

    Today's Around Disney blog in the OC Register is reporting that the coffee being served at The Market House has already been changes. But not to Starbucks. They are using a vendor called Joffrey's.

    They mention Miceage of course, saying that Starbucks was just a rumor. But my gut feeling is that we haven't seen the end of this yet.

    Here is the link. I hope it works since I am posting this from my iPhone.

    Aww... Well, I hope the new coffee is better than the Nescafe that was in there, at least.

                  I'm thinking that somewhere along the way, negotiations with Starbucks must have fallen through and thats why they switched. Maybe Disney wouldn't give them enough control over how the product was served or something, and Starbucks might have pulled out of the deal. Or vice versa. Any number of things could of happened if this was an actual deal that was in the works.

                        You can get Peet's coffee at the Haggen-Dazs in Downtown Disney. They have been opening early in the morning for folks to get their coffee fix.

                            Joffery's also operates at WDW

                            Forget humble, we have a right to brag. Joffrey's is the preferred provider of espresso coffee for Walt Disney World, a position we have earned by winning a blind taste test for six years straight. And that’s no Mickey Mouse achievement.

                                  I dunno about Starbuck's or Joffrey's, but I have only ever bought one cup of coffee at Disneyland and it tasted TERRIBLE. I don't know who was their coffee provider previously, but it was bad, so I am guessing most anything would be a step up from whatever they were selling before.

                                    I do have to say that the coffee at WDW is a lot better tha the coffee at DL - it is still pretty bad, but it is better if that helps any lol

                                      Disney doesn't comment on negotiations like this. But it appears that they have either gotten snagged on price or contract terms. I'd still like to see the Starbucks happen, but if it doesn't, I hope this new brand of coffee is better than the crap they were selling before.
