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.
