NOT HAPPY!

I agree with the pp about Starbucks at DTD. that would be fine and more appropriate. But I am shocked and DISGUSTED that they would close main street bakery out of all places for Starbucks. Like really? Starbucks? Main Street Bakery out of all things? why? I have no words. What the heck are they doing?

This is about the most discouraging thing I have read about WDW ever. Main Street USA is supposed to be a special place, a trip back to a world that doesn't exist anymore. Now we can walk down that special street and see the exact same corporate-branded store we see on every street corner at home. What a blight on Walt's fantasy world. What in the world would make me want to go intoo a shop on Main Street and get the exact same thing I could get any morning at home? I absolutely hate this idea. I can't believe I will never again get one of those fantastic cinnamon rolls.

Why not just bring in great coffee, that is not a corporate chain. Make it unique

Love it - finally some good coffee. BTW....I suspect those that are worried will be pleasantly surprised based on version that I went to at DCA this past summer.

I'm actually beyond excited that Starbucks is finally coming to WDW especially to the MK! I'm fairly positive they will still continue to sell Disney pastries... Finally I can drink coffee while at Disney.

Very happy here. Great baked goods can be found everywhere around the parks, but good coffee is hard to find. Starbucks is no longer the best there is out there, but it is far better than Disney coffee.

I agree, good coffee isn’t that difficult.

Like others said, why not just work coffee and drinks into MSB?

This decision makes me sad. It doesn't seem right. And I worked for Starbucks for 5 years and absolutely adore the company, so its not like I'm anti-Starbucks.

I'm SO disapponted. IMHO, Disney just isn't as.....magical with chains like Starbucks. I'm in WDW to get away from the real world, not be reminded of the food I could get at home. I don't like this.

Petition to save the Bakery!

Mary Albright of WDWarrior started a petition if you feel strongly about the closing of the bakery.

She just started it now, so she needs some signatures!
