FROM the OCregister.com...... Disney is in the early stages of designing the look for the classic Main Street's Market House for when Starbucks comes in next year, said Suzi Brown, a Disneyland Resort spokeswoman. The Market House will temporarily close for renovations sometime next year and re-open with Starbucks products in late 2013. Since opening in 1955, Market House has offered free coffee refills. Visitors who keep their receipts can return for another cup of basic brew any time during the same day. Disney hasn't said yet whether Starbucks will honor the tradition. Ginger Miller, of Chatsworth, said she is upset about the prospect of Disneyland changing Market House, especially the possibility of halting the free refills. She started a Facebook page, "Save Free Coffee Refills at Market House Disneyland." Miller, an annual passholder, heard about the changes from an employee and is urging others to write to Disneyland to keep alive the tradition. "My sincere hope is that Disneyland will find a way to bring in Starbucks but keep the magic," Miller said in an email. "It is a good tradition and one of the many reasons Disneyland holds a place in my heart that no other theme park could ever fill." In April, the company announced that it would add six Starbucks in its Florida and Anaheim parks. The first Disney Starbucks opened in June at Disney California Adventure within the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café. The café often has a long line, with most drink prices higher than Starbucks stores outside the park.

I love Starbucks. But I think they should look for another location in the parks for a Starbucks and leave the market house alone. Put it somewhere near IASW so people can get hot drinks over in that section of the parks. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 10:37AM
I agree - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 10:40AM
that is a great idea, put it somewhere that does not already have a lot of traffic - Dave   13498.2 #2 10:56AM
I agree too. I love Starbucks as well but leave Market House alone. - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 3:25PM
Although not our choice, I would really prefer it remain The Market House. We may not be able to live in 1955 forever, and as Walt said "Disneyland will never be completed." But, this is a part of the park that should be nostalgic, remind us all of tradition. I would gladly grab a Starbucks on my way home when I'm back in the real world. - Alicewhoareyou  2567.5 #53 10:42AM
I couldn't agree more. I wasn't pleased when they put the Starbucks in DCA either. - lizzie2thelou  49.9 #4787 11:15AM
The Market House needs to remain as is. It is part of the original park. I have so many memories of going in and listening to the conversations on the phones inside the store. - Diznimom  225.2 #1666 1:36PM
I will be very disappointed if we lose the cinn tea latte they have at the Market House and the free refills. Perhaps Jolly Holiday has the cinn tea but I didn't see it on their menu. I'm in support of the vintage, nostalgia remaining. - MamaRoo  466.7 #465 1:23PM
I keep forgetting to try this - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 1:39PM
I don't coffee and Cinnamon tea Latte saves me on cold nights. I don't want it to go away. - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #208 3:00PM
I will be writing my letter. SAVE MARKET HOUSE! Thanks for the info Dave! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 1:47PM
Starbucks does not belong in Disneyland at all IMHO. - goofygal  11004.0 #7 9:57AM
Maybe they'll at least do $.50 refills like a normal Starbucks - Mouse4life  1679.6 #100 10:37AM
But doesn't the Market House give free refills now? - dessertLOVER  153.0 #2670 11:06AM
Starbucks in DCA is priced like airports & hotels. I think there are plenty of other places to put one. By IASW is a great idea W4DE - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 10:58AM
With a premium AP discount it is actually a few cents cheaper. - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 3:27PM
Not a fan of their over-roasted beans. :/ But what's one little guy going to do? - PeachKay  311.1 #846 1:20PM
There's a Starbucks in DCA?? - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #341 1:48PM
You're either joking or you really are a sleepyhead. 😜😝 - Alicewhoareyou  2567.5 #53 1:56PM
I think they should put it with Marvel Land over in Six Flags. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 2:04PM
LEAVE MARKET HOUSE ALONE! Seriously, they have one of the only hot beverages I enjoy at the parks and we don't need another Starbucks. If people have to get their fix so bad, they should have opened in DTD. - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #56 2:16PM
You should make a video. Like the leave Brittany alone guy. But with Market House. - Mouse4life  1679.6 #100 3:18PM
I don't think Main Street should ever be messed with! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 3:18PM
Maybe start a petition? I love the market house!!! - minnieMisty  276.9 #1089 3:39PM
if they will start selling SBUX coffee inside Market House, then keep the interior and ambiance the same... Also, offer a free refill for Brewed Sbux coffee. Just don't make it more expensive - otilegna  2679.9 #48 3:52PM
I don't mind Starbucks in the parks, I think they did a nice job at fiddler in terms of keeping it in line with the theming. However, I don't think the market house is the place for it. It's smaller than a lot of existing Starbucks stores and is always busy as is. Adding some Starbucks drinks might be okay... - bluefairy  643.8 #313 11:55AM
Not a total Starbucks fan either. I like just good ol' coffee-flavored coffee. - mightymike  272.8 #1141 12:36PM
