    If Starbucks wasallowed to be served in Disneylnad, I think that the DL preservationists would start to freak out when shops and attractions started being replaced with Starbucks. Would the Hub have competing Starbucks carts on each of its wheels?







    (Don't mind me today, in a bit of a mood.)
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

        Not to cross reference the "other" park on the East Coast, but the coffee at the Crystal Palace used to be sponsored by "Columbian Coffee" and was, at that time, outstanding. Does anyone know if that's still the case?

          Only Starbuck stores feature their own trained baristas. All other locations (airports, campuses, etc.) are not Starbucks employees, they are employees of the airport, campus, etc. and do not have the same training. Quality varies GREATLY at these "other locations."

          If Starbucks were to provide the coffee, regular DL cast members would be serving it. May not exactly be the best solution...
          True but liscensed baristas from the companies, excepts are hired as consultants for all non-Starbucks owned vendors to provide the most similar level of legendary service possible. Trust me I worked for the evil empire for 3 years. I know my shisnet about coffee and especially starbuckos.

            Bleh. To me, there's no such thing as a good cup of coffee... I can't stand the stuff. Ironically, the only coffee I have EVER enjoyed was some iced coffee a girl made me try at DL a long time ago (they didn't sell iced coffee, she made it). Was it actually good, or was it simply because I was young and smitten? I'll never know, and don't really care. I'll always remember that as the only coffee I've ever enjoyed...

              Lol, you caffeine freaks are very passionate about coffee. As other have stated, Starbucks in the park wouldn't necessarily mean a better cup. I work for them, and a Disney store would be like an airport location. While they may be trained and follow the same standards, for some reason they don't taste the same as company owned stores. I think the lacking quality to Disneyland's coffee is the proportion of coffee being used. Add a couple more scoops of grounds and that bad coffee might actually have a weak flavor. Either way you have it, people will buy it no matter how much they hate it. Our only hope is a Starbuck's to open in Downtown Disney (which is shocking they're not there yet.)

                Grrrrrr---more coffee ain't a good answer. Moooo coffee on top of bad coffee is just stronger bad coffee *hangs his head* all I wanted was someone to acknowledge the park coffee sucked and that everytime I get a cup it has grounds in it. *sniffles a little* I just want to enjoy my two most favorite things together in harmony, why is so fracking hard?

                  And this is why I drink tea in the park, despite being an otherwise avid coffee drinker...

                    Have you noticed they hardly fill the cup full when you order a mocha or latte??? SOOO annoying.

                      I also hate the coffee at the parks. However, (I know this may be seen as sad by some) I bring my electric kettle and french coffee press with me and make it myself in the hotel room. That way I know I'm getting coffee I like!

                        Please no Starbucks! They are the McD's of the coffee world - high volume and restricted choices. We've had darn few good latte's outside of the Puget Sound region - I guess we're spoiled.
                        At least now I know what Not to order for a beverage at the park!

                            Starbucks is a little overated, (But I settle for it) You should try Peet's Coffee. Peets-Major Dickason's good strong coffee.
                            Or "Illy" from Italy, Best espresso out there.

                            That way Starbucks isn't branded on every corner of Disneyland.
                            The coffee in the Blue Bayou is from DCA Bakery, (Brea) It is not bad.

                                Bwahaha! did you know the owner of Peets used to be part owner of Starbucks? He broke away from starbucks because he wanted to focus more on the art and flavor of the product. I drink a little coffee, but Peets TEA rocks!!!!

                                  Well I think Peet's is doing a better job, Because on more then one occasion I have become sick from a bad Starbuck's batch.

                                    I've done a lot of work on Catalina Island and for some years Starbucks was the only coffee served on the Catalina Express boats dispite the fact that most passengers hated it. Thank God in heaven they finally changed brands, though I'm not sure as to what. A cup of Starbucks is about as subtle and soothing as being hit over the head with the tree branch the beans grew on. Try bouncing around on a high-speed boat while a cup of overly bitter, pungently strong coffee acid eats away at your stomach.

                                    Fortunately we've got a wealth of coffee shops here in Redlands, and only two of them are starbucks. All the rest offer better character, unique atmosphere, and original (and tastier) selections.

                                    I've been thinking that the coffee in Disneyland used to taste better than it has recently. I have a couple of cups every time I'm at the park, but I've never had grounds in my cup... ick. And it is true that I've enjoyed the coffee at DCA more than Disneyland's recently, though I thought it was just me. I'm going on Sunday; I'll have to do a taste test.
