  • Starbucks to invade, er, be placed in the Market House

    So.... with the news that Starbucks will be installed in the Market House, how does everyone feel about it? Good? Bad?
    Keep in mind that it will most likely need seating which may entail the use of some of the space currently occupied by Disneyana. Also, the fire burning stove will need to be removed/relocated. Debate away!

        As long as they keep the free refill w/ receipt rule, I'll be happy (though I am not a coffee drinker).

              This one frustrates me. I love the market house atmosphere and I'm pretty sure the renovations needed for Starbucks is going to destroy it.

              From the party line phones, to the checker board, the stove to the free refills. It's not going to be anything like it was and this one is going to leave quite a sting for me.

                Was there a confirming link you can provide? Or did I miss it? Or are we just assuming this will happen because one is in DCA?

                If it does happen, I hope they keep the atmosphere of the Market House like the party line phones and the stove.

                Ta Da!

                  I wish they could just serve the coffee and keep the themeing the way it is. Overall, this won't affect me as I am not a coffee drinker but I hope that store itself is saved.

                    Why? They really don't need to do much to the place to make it a Starbuck's location. Just some subtle signage like at the pig place in CA Adventure. If they make seating in the Disnyana store, that is even better as it will keep more people from milling around in the Market House after they get their drinks.

                    I'm not sure why you would think this. The one in CA Adventure in no way screams, "STARBUCK'S!!!" I'm sure this one will be just as subtle and will probably look pretty much the same as it does now. Just a new menue and new vendor.

                        I didn't say it would scream starbucks. I said that the renovations needed to make it work for a starbucks on main street would end up destroying the current market house. The space that they have to work with behind the counter is not big enough. They will also want to add in seating to accommodate the guests. A starbucks on main street will also require more queuing space. I can't see a way they are going to do this without basically destroying what is currently there.

                        It's not about it being starbucks. I love starbucks and I go to the FFP quite often, but the FFP was designed to be a starbucks location, it didn't have one shoehorned into a space not designed for it.

                          I think they'll be able to keep most of the decor since removing the merchandise displays will free up some room. They will probably not have as big of a menu as the DCA location since Jolly Holiday has sandwiches and baked goods. My biggest concern would be how busy it will be. Even if they convert Disneyana to seating and continue to use the outdoor seating near the fruit cart while keeping the Market House itself as a queue and waiting area, I could still imagine lines out the door all day.

                          As for free reills, I would bet this tradition goes away. Ironically, if this was a regular Starbucks they would offer free refills to Rewards members.

                            I'm fine with it. The coffee and service in Market House is terrible, has been for years. I doubt we'll get the free refills.

                              Thank you, was just going to make this point. How are all the myriad other corporate sponsorships and product placements since July 17th 1955 okay, but Starbucks isn't.

These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                                Refills at Starbucks? Yeah, that's as good as gone.

                                  I hope they dont change the inside too much.

                                  But its better than that Nestle 'coffee'

                                    I am all for it but I can't help but wonder what that does for the Coffee and Goodies being sold at Holly Jolly Bakery? I will say that over in DCA I was highly impressed at how things were being run and feel Market House should be no different.

                                      I think this is a positive. Drawbacks are going to be losing another bit of history, and most likely some of the nice details of the area such as the stove and checkerboard and free refills. The location has some serious space issues that will need to be addressed as well.

                                      As for the positives. I'm not a coffee drinker at all, but I realize that Starbucks coffee is simply a superior product. Not only that, but you'll have actual trained cast on making coffee. As it stands now, this location is run by the Stores department, not foods. These are the same people who sell the figurines in Disneyana and assist with you t-shirt purchases. Pleasant and hardworking individuals, but none of them have food handlers cards or have anymore than a brief overview of making coffee.

                                        Have you seen the mad house that is FF&P? They are going to need plenty of room for the counter, queue space, seating (even if they do use some of Disneyana). The Market House is not that big.
