I'm actually more disappointed in that announced location as it's an ice cream shop so it will definitely be a significant change. This is always our first stop in EPCOT for ice cream sandwiches. Wonder if they will still sell those?

I can't see Main St Bakery changing that significantly.
I am more upset about the EPCOT location also. We always go there on our first night of the trip. We sit outside by the fountain, eat our ice cream, and soak up the atmosphere. I'm not so upset about the Starbucks label, I'm upset about possibly changing our tradition. However, Walt said, "keep moving forward". I guess this is Disney's way. It is truly about the bottom line whether we like it or not.

The Main Street Bakery is a classic tradition which will be missed. This saddens me so much b/c it changes the integrity of what Walt intially envisioned. I know times change but getting rid of that bakery and those amazing cinnamon buns is just heartbreaking

Am I the only one excited by this move? The DCA location is BEAUTIFUL and the signage really fits with the rest of stores around it. I'm sure the DI won't make the Starbucks in Main Street look like a sore thumb.

This! The outside doesn't scream Starbucks, so Main St isn't changed. I'm guessing they will still have the cinnamon rolls, because the one in DCA had Disney items in with the Starbucks items. I LOVED the one in DCA & am so excited for this. When we spend 10 days at Disney, I am dying for a decent cup of coffee after a couple days. This makes my favorite place in the world even better .

Thumbs down

I have had 2 Starbucks coffees in my life and threw them both away-buckets of mud.

Don't be silly. All we need to do is head on over to The Haunted Mansion and attend that seance they are always having! I'll ask about the coffee and you can ask about the booze.

I'm more disappointed in the EPCOT location as well, although a Starbucks location wouldn't have been able to fit in anywhere in World Showcase. Is there anywhere else in EPCOT to get a ice cream sandwich like they have at Fountain View

We actually don't know that they will be getting rid of the cinnamon buns, the location at DCA sells many Starbucks and Disney offerings so this might include the cinnamon bun.

I'm excited! I adore Starbucks and am excited to be able to get my hot coffee and fraps while in the World!

I don't see any cinnamon rolls in that picture & yes I am aware you can get them at Sleepy Hollows. Not the same IMO. I really don't care if they bring SB into Disney. I won't drink it because it tastes like the burned stuff from the bottom of the coffee pot, but I know others like it. I just don't think it should replace MSB. Plenty of other places they could put it.

I'm very pro having Starbucks in the parks and have no attachment to Main St Bakery (it's a store to me, that's all ) I do wish they had chosen a different location (more because the Bakery just already gets far too busy in the AM) However I think everyone is panicking over nothing at this stage. What if WDW actually are keeping Main St Bakery but just adding Starbucks coffee and food but keeping everything else? We actually don't know the exact plan. The official statement says Main St Bakery is closing for refurb and will reopen as a Starbucks location, not closing entirely.

I think we should wait to see how it is handled. For all we know it could end up Main Street bakery presented by Starbucks. Or Starbucks Main St bakery.

I think this is a case where Disney can't win. There must be hundreds of posts about the terrible coffee at Disney. If the baked goods are as popular as everyone (myself included) think they are, they will be available in the new themed Starbucks.

Exactly. Main St has been sponsored for decades, since before Eisner. I think the name Starbucks is just a lightning rod.
