I agree. WDW has always been full of corporate sponsorships. I just don't get the outrage. Looking at the pictures in the link above of the Starbucks at DL, they will still have classic bakery items as well as the addition of actual coffee. What's bad about that?

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.
They haven't actually said they are closing Main St Bakery, the statement they have released have said it's being closed for refurb and re opening as a Starbucks location. I'm thinking that it will still be called Main St Bakery but I'am guessing, as it everyone else on these Starbucks threads. Aside from the limited information Disney has released about the WDW locations and what we already know of the DCA location, we don't know really that much of anything.

I'm fairly sure we won't end up with a castle turret with a Starbucks sign!

The article I read said that the DCA location has Mickey cookies, but they are NOT made at the Disney bakery's. I would not count on Disney items at this location.

My suggestion would be to move the bakery to that little shop just inside the gate, but before the train station. It's the one on the left. People could get to it while waiting for rope drop. Since it's inside the gate everyone can get to it without leaving the park and that shop doesn't seem to do a lot of business.

The DCA location has many Disney offerings that are not Starbucks food, they are pure Disney offerings.

Thank you!! All of these "Walt would never approve" people reeeaaallly need to brush up on their Disney history. From the opening day of DL through the opening of WDW to today, Main Street has been a veritable showcase of corporate food sponsors with exclusive rights. Why was it OK for Kraft, Nestle, Carnation, Sealtest, Edy's, Coke-A-Cola, Oscar Meyer and Sara Lee to run shops on Main Street, but when Starbuck's gets the same opportunity, we are confronted with Armageddon? Hasn't Minute Maid been in Adventureland forever? Walt didn't lose his lunch over such arrangements.

Rant over. Just remember. You have no right to complain about people walking down Main Street with a Starbuck's cup in their hand while you are holding a Dole Whip in yours!

I am a huge Starbucks fan, but this angers me. They could put it anywhere else like in Tommorowland. It would fit great there. I don't see Starbucks fitting on Main Street at all. It's supposed to be nostalgic. Starbucks is not; it's modern.

What's next? A wal-mart next to the castle?

My family was disappointed in this because you can get Starbucks anywhere, but we are hoping they will keep some of our favorite baked goods. Keeping our fingers crossed we can see the MSB one more time on our early January trip.

Ummm no Starbucks will be themed, possible even still as Main St Bakery. How is this different to Main St Bakery serving Nescafe?

No. Here and there you can see comments from those of us who like this change, mixed with the other comments. However, this is a Disney fan forum, so the vast majority of people who post here will be unhappy with anything that might change what they remember, this one more so than others because it is something that goes back so far.

I agree, totally dry and tasteless. I am not a fan of their coffee or their baked goods.

It could end the parks as we know it. People canceling their holidays left, right and centre. The reason = Starbucks infiltrating their beloved Disney World and "replacing" Nescafe.

But have these people at least looked at the link provided a few pages back? MSB will reopen with a different name but serving the same sweets and MUCH better coffee!! I don't get it why this so bad!

Replacing that nasty stuff they call a coffee (or how I like to call it, NOCAFE) should be cause for celebration, it should even have a parade and fireworks to go with it!

I don't have a problem with corporate sponsorship in the parks, but Main Street should be a little more special. I would hate to see everything changed to appeal to hipsters and Tweens.
