Thing that always makes me chuckle about these discussions is the conversation focusing on the name rather than the product itself. Not everyone loves Starbucks but it's a step up from the Nescafe swill most locations serve now. And the food served at Disney-run locations within the parks is hardly haute cuisine.
sorry - i admit i'm not an expert to all things disney but still am a big disney fan. i did not know mc d's was a part of disney. i went when i was young - just don't remember it being there. i've been back twice as an adult (with my kid) but don't recall seeing it in 2007 and 2009.

out of curiosity, where would have found it back in 2007 and 2009?

i still stand by what i say, though - if Mc D was in disney, i'm glad to see it pulled out.

anyway - i was not trying to cause any trouble.

i was just trying to talk about something that WAS actually happening. i am new here. but mean no disrespect.

They are the ones that have turned into the trolls.
it's an unfortunate part of most discussion boards, online, from my experience.

typing behind a screen makes people a lot braver than in RL.

McDonald's had a significant presence at the Disney parks in the United States, but the big 10-year alliance between the two companies ended at the beginning of 2007. See the following links:
McDonald's at Walt Disney World

McDonald's at Downtown Disney (Walt Disney World)

McDonald's at Disneyland

Burger Invasion (Disney California Adventure)

McDonald's presents Dinoland U.S.A. (Disney's Animal Kingdom)

Is your comment really necessary?
I agree with you it is totally crazy anymore. People just look for something to argue about.

You are 100% correct! I started these boards 6 years ago and the same thing with me I got so sick of people bashing me for whatever reasons. Wondering if the people who are on here arguing with everything you say are the parents of kids in school who are bullying kids??

Yeah, I think the same thing all the time. Kids learn their behaviors from their parents. Bullies raise bullies.

That is true. I really think the people on these boards are true bullies. They pick at anything they can. I had someone be rude to me about and I stuck up for myself but not saying anything rude back and she reported me twice!! Totally crazy!!

1. Massive generalization to say the people on these boards are bullies.
2. A topic such as this seemed irrelevant to the board its been posted to (broad speculation, no merit, no news)
3. If someone feels that this topic is irrelevant, its their opinion, and so far have not lashed back at being called "bullies" or "rude", in fact the user who used the term "troll" apologized even, the situation in this thread has been dissolved.
4. Go with the flow, not everyone will agree with you, it happens. Best thing to do is to agree to disagree and continue to remain on topic to the thread at hand.

That said, I still don't see this ever happening. No.

I did not say any one on this post was being that way.

I just took another look at this entire thread looking for participants who were "rude" and acted as "bullies."

All I found was discussion about the topic (and complaints about supposed rudeness). The general reaction was that Disney buying Starbucks would not make business sense and would not happen. Also, it was pointed out that the post that started this topic here on the Disney Rumors and News board was neither a rumor nor news.

Some replies were brief (including the post that started this topic). Some (such as mine) were more wordy. Some included humor.

There were no personal attacks and nothing that was actually rude (unless read with a rude inner voice).

Disagreeing with a discussion point in a discussion topic on a discussion board is discussion, not rudeness.

Again I did not say anyone from this post was being rude or bullies. In general yes some people are very rude and act like bullies. No matter what the subject is.

Not quite sure how this perfectly valid post to the rumor board has turned into a discussion about people who know it all and are argumentative.

These are discussion boards. People all have different opinions are are encouraged to express them so others will see all sides of a story.
