Starbucks Coming to Disney Parks

According to today's Disney Parks Blog, Starbucks is coming to the Disney Parks.  I'm not a huge Starbucks fan (don't drink coffee, and their tea selection isn't anything special), so I can take or leave this news. However, it seems that coffee drinkers are very excited to have quality coffee in the parks (apparently Nescafe is not very good...) I just hope the Starbucks outlets truly do blend appropriately into the Disney theming for each park. What do you think? Is this a good move? Starbucks junkies and coffee drinkers will obviously be pleased, and it could be a good partnership for the parks so long as these venues are more Disney and less Starbucks in their appearance and operation.
