That is absolutely horrible news :furious: How in the world can they remove The Main Street Bakery :sad:

I'm so sad! Main Street Bakery is always a first morning tradition for our family. :sad1:

I thought they were just going to add Starbucks to it. How can they replace the bakery?? :sad:

:sad: We don't drink coffee and the few things we have had at our local starbucks I can honestly say that I have never dreamed about them like we do about some of the treats we have gotten at the Main Street Bakery. What will I do without my rice crispy treats:confused3

I'm not going to worry TOO much until it's actually finished. Although, I'm disappointed that the Bakery will be closed in Feb...
I really hope they don't mess with it too much. If you read about the Starbucks location in Disneyland (DCA), it's not in-you-face Starbucks. They still have a lot of the Disney desserts/pastries, with Starbucks pastries in addition. So, hopefully, Main St. Bakery will be similar...HOPEFULLY.

Here's a review from DCA:

This is heartbreaking! While I love my Starbucks, I did not ever imagine Main Street Bakery would be replaced by one. Couldn't it have been combined?! Starbucks coffee with the typical bakery treats?! I'm so sad:sad:

I'll add my opinion to this thread too - stupid decision, stupid. Disney might learn a lesson from Nascar - if you torque off your core fans, they might leave and not come back.

This is my review of the Starbucks in Disney California Adventure. The one in MK will be similar in food and beverage offerings.

Is there any where else at WDW that sells cinnamon rolls similar to Main St. Bakery rolls? I was looking toward to trying the yummy rolls on our trip in April!

ButterflyJen 11-09-2012 09:18 PM

I hope it turns out similar to the DCA cafe..that sounds like a nice mix. We've never been to WDW and are going this January. I just read a review of the bakery today on facebook & was working it into our plans as much as possible...now it sounds as though it will be closed for remodeling :( Fingers crossed for a sensitive incorporation into Main St!!

I believe that Gaston's Tavern will be selling warm cinnamon buns...not sure how similar they are though...my husband and I were going to do a taste challenge in December.

I really hope that it is not a complete Starbucks take over...I know my husband will be thrilled with the coffee but the bakery is pure Main Street nostalgia!

IF Disney is able to BLEND Starbucks into the Main Street Bakery while still leaving that turn-of-the-century charm of the Bakery itself, I might be ok with that. But if it's a full-fledged Starbucks like the have on every other street corner in Manhattan, then boo. Not happy about that.

Here's my comment that's currently awaiting moderation on the Disney Parks blog:

Starbucks inside the Magic Kingdom? Iím sure itís not possible to reconsider, but I feel like Downtown Disney would be a much more appropriate venue for it. I love the Main Street bakery. Itís always my familyís first stop at the Magic Kingdom for breakfast. A Starbucks would no longer feel special. Whatís so magical about the Disney parks is how once youíre inside you feel like youíre somewhere completely different. A Starbucks is like letting the real world in.

Also, Main Street USA is supposed to resemble Waltís hometown of Marceline, Missouri at the turn of the century (1900, not 2000). Itís a stretch but I can see an argument for Starbucks in the future and therefore being appropriate in Future World at Epcot, but definitely not Main Street USA.

When exactly in January is this refurbishment scheduled to happen? Iíll be there on the 11th, so Iím hoping to get to go to the old bakery one last time.


I wonder if it'll pass the moderators popcorn::

Really though, this is incredibly sad news. I wonder if they really thought people would get excited about this? There's a Starbucks in my office building, a Starbucks in my grocery store, a Starbucks on every corner. Why do we need more in Disney World?

Really disappointed with this decision!!! :( I always have to stop here at least once when we're there. They have such good egg, ham and cheese croissants as well as danish's. This is sad!! :sad:
