I think this is a horrible idea. As someone else said, it takes away from the charm of Main Street. Let's get rid of all the little shops and replace them with Dollar Stores too.

I think this is a horrible decision and dread the constant Grrrrrr GRRRRRRRRR GGRRRRRRr that will be emanating from the "bakery" as it's blenders turn out a constant stream of fraps.

I'm fine with a Starbucks in the Magic Kingdom; does it have to be on Main Street? To whoever said they should replace The Plaza with a Dairy Queen; spot on comparison.

This is so sad. I frequent DCA and enjoy the coffee there. But that bakery was not iconic like Main Street, so I guess I didn't mind seeing it go. I'm still on the fence about the bakery change at DL. I guess the new place is very well themed, but it's still not the old bakery!
But one thing I do know, the "Starbucks" in DCA has a horrendous line. Last time I was there I waited longer in line to get a coffee than I did going through the TSMM line twice. (TSMM only took about 20 minutes to ride twice). I timed it and the wait was around 35 mins for my coffee. The line could improve if they had a "regular" only coffee line. I was there with all the frappe, cappucino, etc people, so it takes time to get to the front. They still had cin rolls, muffins, cupcakes, cookies, but not the same as before. My friend said they should have put Starbucks at the noodle terrace location that hardly ever gets used. I agree.
I go frequently, so I sometimes choose to wait in the line and I don't feel I'm taking away from the park experience. But I don't know if others will feel that way.
Dang, I hate this is happening on Main Street.

Personally, I'm worried that Casey's will become a Nathan's.

speak with your wallets if you don't like the change and then Disney may reconsider. My guess is that just like DCA it will be extremely popular...

I was looking forward to going to the Main Street Bakery on our visit in May. Unfortunately, that is no longer an option since it will be a Starbucks. I will just be walking right by it. I can go to Starbucks anytime at home if I wanted.
What's going to be next - McDonalds?
Disney should have just sold Starbucks coffee and not have a complete Starbucks replacing the Main Street Bakery.
Extremely disappointed. Makes no sense.

Another Starbucks

I am not happy about this, I like the Disney magic and I believe this will be a mistake

They did the McDonald's a few years back it was in animal kingdom.

Are we still trying to figure out the "big project?"
The answers are probably right in front of us

This is extremely disappointing news. Very sad that the unique MSB will be replaced by an everyday Starbucks....

You have no idea just how sad my husband and I are to hear this news.

Now a little bit of the outside world is creeping it way into my fantasy world and I don't like it one bit.
