I agree. This is very sad news. It's one of my favorite paces in MK. I understand that it won't exist as of December 1. Is that correct?

I read it will be closing in January to be made into a Starbucks.

Also, The Fountain View in EPCOT will be turned into a Starbucks as well.

I thought it was remaining MSB with the ADDITION of a Starbucks.....?? YES, that would be sad.

ETA: Just found the blog confirming the bad news for my very own eyes, so not good..

Maybe it is time to write and let Disney know how we all feel. I already did at their new customer service site.

It's not going to cease to exist, they're going to renovate the interior (so yes, it will be closed for awhile) and sell Starbucks coffee and specialty beverages. The name will not change, the exterior will not change, they will still sell some of the Disney baked goods (although since they haven't said which ones, it still may be that your favorite won't be there).

I guess it's all those years of guests clamoring for different coffee than Nescafe. Like those of us who used to frequent Pleasure Island, probably if you asked us "would we like more shopping and dining and entertainment at DTD" we would have said "sure" without realizing they meant to close the clubs and bring in third parties to add it.

Quote:
While it is not closing and it will have several of their baked "goodies" there, I just personally prefer them not to change it at all.
Many feel that way for whatever reason (I don't - I don't find the place all that fabulous, even as a bakery), but what's done is done...it's going to happen.

I don't think it's the concept of change. Nobody is screaming about the Fountain View changing. For whatever reason, there is a lot more emotional attachment to the bakery. As for corporate sponsorship, I can think of three corporate sponsor logos currently displayed on Main Street. It's nothing new or different.

fine with me if they close it...we have been severely disappointed over the last 2 years with the quality of the baked goods at Main Street Bakery. They went to mass-producing baked goods & then storing them in refridgerated coolers...then putting the trays directly into the display cases without heating them up. So the baked items were served cold and stale more often than not. The ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls? NOT. The frosting was hard & cracked off...the rolls were so stale they were like styrofoam. We quit going there a good 6 months ago after yet another disappointing visit there.

Hopefully they'll get fresh pastries with the Starbucks.

DH and I are not big fans of Starbucks at all. We did get the ooey-gooey cinammin rolls last Sunday and they were delicious. Even brought a couple home - 10 seconds in the microwave and a little bit of Disney was there.

There are certain things WDW should not change and the Main Street Bakery is one of them!

You hit the nail on the head.

ANYTHING they do will be an improvement.

I've never seen starbucks serve cinnamon rolls! & I doubt most of their stuff is fresh! We were just at the MSB on Friday & the line was HUGE! Why would anyone wait in a long line for bakery items to take home when there is a starbucks around every corner at home? This is a tragedy to the Magic Kingdom!!

Yummy - never had a bad ooey-gooey cinnamon roll there yet! Every trip at least 2-3 times we have them and they have all been moist and delicious. None of our other purchases there have been stale either - you must have really caught an off day!
