With all this wailing and rending of garments going on, I would like one single person that is complaining to show me solid evidence that the traditional Main Street Bakery goods will no longer be sold.

I have no doubt that while all is said and done, everyone will be able to continue to gorge themselves on their cinnamon buns.

At first I was upset about hearing this but really, it will still be the first place I go for my morning coffee in the MK and now I will actually enjoy it.

I'm just a gal that likes unique items a places. I've only been in starbucks on the East coast and the one in jersey is exactly like the one in Philly.
I'm thinking that they may not have chosen the best wording. If you look at the pictures in the link in my previous post, the place in DCA that sells Starbucks looks nothing like your corner Starbucks.

But it looks nothing like MSB either.

In my neck of the woods, that is who I generally see enjoying their goods. I have nothing against Starbucks. I don't care for their products, and I know that I am in the minority with that, but I just hope that Disney somehow maintains the integrity of the history and STORY of Main Street, U.S.A., with this change.

Because it looks like the place they were adding it to. They're two different stores with different looks. The point was that they kept the original look.

Change is hard for many people and I get it.....I am really looking forward to getting coffee in Disney instead of having the option to buy a cup of watery mud. I wont have to pack my own coffee/coffee maker going forward. I welcome this change, although the location is not ideal. I would have preferred that it be at the other end of Main Street, but adding congestion to that area is not the best idea.

Exactly, they are very different and to me DL place looks more like SB with some Disney items and not like addition of SB to MSB.

Thank you.

It's like saying the ice cream on Main Street shouldn't be made by Edy's (or Dreyer's on the west coast) - everyone realizes that's right on the signage?

Wow, folks. We all knew SB was coming to the parks - NOT to replace Nescafe - they ALWAYS said each U.S. park would have one Starbucks LOCATION. Should they build one with a drive through in the parking lot or something?



It also makes NO sense to put one in a far corner of the park. When do people grab coffee? First thing in the morning as they arrive.

BTW, from the Disney Parks blog... "...there will be a selection of Disney favorites that you’ve enjoyed at the bakery over the years."

I'm also going to guess a good part of the "renovation" time will actually be training the CMs in SB knowledge, how to use the various machines, etc. Starbucks puts a ton of emphasis on consistency and quality control from location to location. It's not just a matter of replacing the Nescafe in the coffee pots.

I agree with you, but can see why people would have this impression. All of our local Starbucks are constantly filled with moms taking their 10 - 13 year olds and their friends for coffee, high school cheerleaders and young guys in business suits. I don't fit any of those categories and I do enjoy my Starbucks, but I can see where people would think that.

Not sure how this looks like any SB I've been to here in NY:


or this:



It is themed to the location.

We have a Starbucks on pretty much every corner in Vegas...not one looks even close to that.
