    From the fan photos, it would seem that the Disney's use of forced perspective is working here, too. Larger cup makes the signs appear a bit smaller. Have to check this out for myself later this year.

    I wonder how the pricing structure is. Are we talking Starbucks prices or Disney prices? Or are they basically the same thing? I'm not a coffee drinker so I have no basis here.

    Nope, we're good.

    I am finding Starbucks a better fit in Epcot over MK but I do think Disney/Starbucks could have done much better theming the inside. Other than first thing in the morning when I must have a jolt of something (though I do prefer Disney's Joffery Coffee) the draw to me would be to sit down and enjoy the brew and cool off for a few minutes, lack of seating is a big minus for me. Thinking Disney/Starbucks were anticipating all day, long lines that didn't happen at MK.

    At the MK, I'm still not over Disney booting the Main Street Bakery. There were many things we always purchased at the Bakery and with the change over the coffee would have improved anyhow since Joffery is replacing the icky NesCafe at all Quick Service in park and resort. Just wish they would have picked a different venue, miss the CinnRoll.

    Prices higher than our local but around Airport prices.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Dilemma solved.... missing Main Street Bakery cinammon rolls ...... found them at Gaston's in the new Fantasyland! Not as much icing, but nevertheless wonderful!

    Re: Starbucks, coffee without Main St. Bakery

    So I'm a fan of Starbucks.....and of course a fan of Disney. But I also like salt and sugar.....just not the two together. But...their coffee is pretty good and they are on property now so I'll be open minded to try it when I get back down to WDW.

    The big question the wife and I had..which I've been looking around for is - are the staff of the various WDW Starbucks locations - Starbucks employees ? If so....I wonder what sort of standards they will have for code of conduct ? How will they interact with Cast Members ? Do they come and go via the Utilidors ?

    Like we all say - the Cast Members make the experience ! I'm sure Disney will manage the situation quite closely !
