okay so I have not been on in over what 2 years almost, but today I heard the heartbreaking news about Market House. The cast member that told me about it was almost in tears. I had to get some buttons today from city hall and the cast member there told me to email and complain. She stated if enough people complain they will not turn it into a starbucks. She stated that enough people complained about the Aladdin show and that was saved so I know there is a LOT of you on here so Im hoping we can save Market house.

I don't mind having a Starbucks, ffp cafe is very well done, but just...not the market house. πŸ˜” - bluefairy  643.8 #313 7:15PM
I love Starbucks, but let it stay in ca adventure!! The market house is historic! - 619HeatherMouse  258.5 #1269 10:03AM
I just want my zebra hot chocolate and ill be happy. - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 7:04PM
now i want coffee. - OhanaPhoto  5324.9 #21 7:17PM
I'm thinking disney needs the sponsorship. Kodak will be gone which is probably not a good thing. If they do make it a Starbucks, lets hope they stay close to the original theme of the market house and old time Main Street. - mightymike  272.8 #1141 7:26PM
But the zebra hot chocolate from Market House is so much better. I tried one at Starbucks and its nowhere near as good! - dessertLOVER  153.0 #2671 7:29PM
They don't even know what a cinnamon tea latte is at Starbucks. That would suck if hat was gone! What's the email address? - mini_MINNIE  1164.7 #153 7:51PM
I hope the Market House doesn't turn into a Starbucks. Now if it were to turn into a Coffee Bean, well that's a different story because its all about Ice Blendeds! If it does turn into a Starbucks, will there still be free refills? - BrerRabbit  360.8 #642 10:33PM
Good luck with the free refills. Starbucks would not let it happen. Franchisee have to jump through hoops as it is. - mlatour  347.4 #685 10:42PM
That's exactly what I was thinking. Thanks. - BrerRabbit  360.8 #642 11:15PM
So sad they would take all that history away just for a few extra bucks. πŸ˜” - LilMissPixie84  309.5 #861 11:24PM
I'm for Starbucks!! It's way better - iluvstitch  8.4 #12321 7:42PM
Don't shoot me, but I don't think it will be that bad! Tw Starbucks in dca had everyone in an uproar and its just fine. I'm hoping the Starbucks in DL will be the same! But if enough people protest, I hope they listen! (And welcome back!) - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 6:57PM
Well this is a blast from the past! Welcome back! I don't drink coffee so I rarely visit the market house. My guess is they will go ahead with the plan regardless of how many people complain because they probably already have a deal in place. - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 7:00PM
probably so. wonder if they'll continue the free cup o coffee? maybe that would be in the contract? - misschurro  6362.6 #17 7:02PM
There won't be free coffee. It will be Starbucks. It will be completely redone. I'm sad because that's one of my favorite places to work and I'm on a medical and won't be back till Friday. I don't have market on my schedule and I have my schedule through the 12th. - FroggyfriendsCM  269.0 #1174 7:38PM
That's been in the newspapers for a while now. - brigeet  498.7 #429 7:02PM
brigeet I dont read the papers nothing but bad news and kinda too busy I just came on here hoping some other people felt the same as me and wanted to try and save it - mommy_likes_minnie  270.8 #1154 7:09PM
I read the newspapers & haven't seen anhthing. I buy other stuff there also. I bought kitchen stuff there for Christmas presents. Wonder where other stuff will go? - Winnie111286  12322.7 #4 9:37PM
actually it was due to be closed today but from what the cm told me it has been postponed I think if starbucks wants to put in another shop it should be elsewhere & not on main street :( the cm was almost in tears and it really made me sad - mommy_likes_minnie  270.8 #1154 7:04PM
No way!!! I LOVE their brew!! Guess I'll have to get it before it gets turned into a Starbucks. - sammy.aceves  38.5 #5305 7:07PM
This is news to me πŸ˜” I'd prefer it to remain the same....however if it must change, I find some solice knowing they did a good job w/ the one in DCA. - Jewelz  557.9 #363 7:12PM
If they need the sponsorship, wouldn't it be great if they could just keep it Market House, serving Starbucks and just add their products and keep the old, sort of a win, win. If it is like the one in DCA, they did a good job, but it would be sad if it was completely changed, though Walt himself was okay with change. I hope they keep the photo places too, just with a new sponsor since Kodak sadly went bankrupt.:( - secretagentangel  4675.8 #28 8:02PM
I think I missed the post that delivered this news. Market House to Starbucks?!?! Nooooooo!!! Zebra hot chocolate, pickles, white chocolate raspberry cookies.... Don't take them away!!! Who do we write to or who can we email? - nerdgirl  86.0 #3823 8:03PM
We must email to keep the market house! - minnieMisty  276.9 #1089 9:05PM
you can go ahead and take the effort into emailing or writing or going to City Hall but it wont do any good. These things are planned out well in advance and its a business decision and they wont mess with the themeing too much of the Market House - Dave  13499.9 #2 9:10PM
I hope they keep the phones and checkers board. But honestly, if they just "brewed Starbucks" like Barnes and Noble, that'd be nice instead of redesigning the place (if that's the case) - cesium55  531.8 #390 9:15PM
Unfortunately the phones were not working when we went there 2 weeks ago. - Boundin  712.2 #272 9:32PM

Like Dave said, sadly it's a done deal. As popular as market is with a group, Disney wants to attract the Starbucks crowd, which is a much larger crowd. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 9:23PM
:( This is sad news! I don't like anything on Starbucks menu. - ireland810  191.9 #2090 9:26PM
UGH!! I hate Starbucks coffee! It's awful!! I don't drink any of their sugary drinks so they have nothing to offer me :-( The Market House has always been my first stop, now ill have to figure something else out! :-( - CAdreamer  98.8 #3611 9:44PM
The petitions that circled to save Carnation Plaza Gardens and Saturday night swing dancing worked well. Not. Corporations are going to do what corporations are going to do. - susieQzee  555.8 #366 9:46PM
Oh nO! Any extension of Starbucks is horrible whether it be at the hotel, Safeway, Dca. It seems like they don't put the expresso shots, all sweet. I enjoy Disneyland coffee. Please no! If you want Starbucks put it in DTD. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1143.5 #157 12:09AM
This is horribly sad. First they take away the Carnation Plaza Gardens and now this. What's next - a Quiznos replacing the Tiki Room...Pretzelmaker turning out Mickey pretzels. This is wrong on so many levels. Let them enter into an agreement to serve Starbucks coffee, but keep it Disney! - msdizmaui  716.8 #270 12:18AM
Bump for the Market house. - VfxGenie  1556.7 #109 11:24AM
This was a business deal between Starbucks and Disney last year! The deal included 1 Starbucks in all Disney parks! DCA was first DL, Epcot and MK next lastly Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. It was announced sometime in early 2012 - sunshinegrl  348.8 #678 7:12PM
I just sent an email through guest services on the disneyland website. - GarnerPhotography  324.9 #776 11:07AM
Thanks for the info. - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #165 11:44AM
Wow...I had no idea about this! My husband and I loved the Market House coffee--our first stop each trip! And with two kids who are "go, go, GO!" the free refills were a special perk. β˜• - Diz_Mel  96.0 #3652 12:42PM
