More commercialization was certainly inevitable after things we have been seeing at DTD! It won't be long before we see other commercial restaurants in the parks!

I love the idea of Starbucks. It is fantastic in DCA but I do not agree with replacing it the iconic Main Street Bakery.

if the way it was handled at Cali is any indication, this is going to be a very classy establishment combining the Starbucks brand inside, with the Disney bakery items inside; the outside will stay themed, and the number of logos you'll see will be very small indeed.

As long as the cinnamon rolls remain Disney, I don't see this as terrible. I would just hope they don't change too much in the facade.

I agree. It is very well done. They had Disney Bakery items (so cinnamon rolls will likely stay) and Starbucks bakery items.

The only problem I have with it is that it's super busy ALL the time in DCA! I like my Starbucks but I don't like the crazy long lines to get my cinnamon roll!

This is an absolutely terrible idea. There is a Starbucks on every street corner everywhere in the country. Magic Kingdom is supposed to be special and magical. There is absolutely nothing magical about yet another Starbucks.

I 100% agree with this. Starbucks has no place at Magic Kingdom period! I HATE THIS IDEA!

I was disgusted when I was first reading this. I still don't like it but have calmed down a little. However, if they do it and don't disturb the Main Street theme, I guess I can't complain.

Think about it this way. The title is basically this if I read correctly:

" A Starbucks is coming to MK" (i know that is not exact words)

or this sounds better:

"Main Street Bakery to now serve Starbucks coffee"

I probably would have thought it better if it was like that. It just like a MK restaurant serving Coke like someone said earlier. Of course, Coke on main street makes sense. lol. I just hope Disney does this right, where we dont see a big lit up sight that says Starbucks Coffee, which I don't think will happen.

I couldn't agree more!! This is terrible, I absolutely love the Bakery, it is our first stop every time we go into the Magic Kingdom.
