Can't be true..the MK Bakery will be no more!
 
Saw this on a different Disboard forum. It's a Disney Parks blog that states the bakery in the Magic Kingdom will be closed for refurb in January and when it reopens will be a Starbucks:confused3. I, for one, think this is a TERRIBLE idea! I go to Disney for the uniqueness that is Disney. I can find Starbucks on every other corner of every city when I am home in the real world. I love the bakery and it's items the way they are now. In my opinion this change is just another small piece of the Disney that everyone loves being lost.... :sad::sad:

Maybe I'm way off base, but this is a terrible idea. Why put chain restaurants in the parks? Doesn't this make "Main Street" a little more like any generic shopping mall, when they start letting in the franchises? What's next? A Cinnabon, perhaps? Or maybe Subway?

Ditto!!!" I'm really hoping it will just offer Starbucks drinks and the rest stays the same. I know it doesn't sound like that, but there is nothing more Disney than dreaming. I'm really glad I'm going in December just in case.

:sad2: here too! Just found out about this tonight. Can't believe they're taking away a place that so many love - surely they know that as busy as it aways is :confused3 I hate Starbucks burned coffee, even though I like my coffee. Will NOT be going there if it's all Starbuck's foods - over priced and *under tasted* ;) I've heard that the Cinnamon roll which is our favorite will be served in a bakery in the FLE.

We have a trip end of Nov. first of Dec. so will have to get our last *fix* then I guess. :sad:

I think Starbucks is more profitable for them. We often forget that Disney is a company that is looking for profit. Universal Studios has a Starbucks and the line is always out the door! Perhaps they will still keep it a cute theme and serve some of the most favorite bakery times. Most are not "true" Starbucks just like the one in US while it serves Starbucks drinks is not a true Starbucks so they don't take Starbucks coupons, etc.

They had McDonald's fry stands in the parks until 2008 or 2009. It wasn't a big deal. There's a Rainforest Cafe in AK and people can't get enough of it. And then there are the corporate sponsorships: The Plaza Ice Cream Parlor serves Edy's Ice cream, Aloha Isle is sponsored by Dole - honestly, I could go on for days.

The fries were always hot and amazing. Every time I walk past where the booth was in MK I get sad lol.

I would have NO problem with MSB serving Starbucks coffee, but to *turn* a fave like MSB INTO a Starbucks is why I hate it so much. :sad1: The places, except Rainforest, were not turned into a chain (yes, sponsored by), and serves their product, but to *take away*something so prominent and bring in a chain, yes, I'm upset. I can't stand the burned coffee Starbucks serves, but would have not problem with others having access to it inside a bakery or CS.

I guess I'm not seeing the difference - it's still going to look the same, the employees will still look the same, It's basically just going to be a product change.

Chip and Co on fb has a link to a petition on ***********. I don't like this either. If they want to add a kiosk with starbucks coffee fine but don't take away a piece of history that has been there for yrs.
