And while: "Disney will do this the right way and keep the location pleasant" is indeed an opinion, it is one formed from vast past experience whereas: "Disney is going to ruin this location" is an opinion formed by little more than fear. People are entitled to either opinion. But one comes with precedent and the other does not.
One opinion formed by fear of losing something, another by promise to get something. Both opinions based on personal feelings and nothing else. While Disney usually does a great job in anything, they also do mistakes, so expecting either is perfectly acceptable. As for other sponsors, if they just announced that they now sell SB it would feel different. How place will turn to be, nobody knows but there is a lot of room for speculation either way.

Except I was just correcting your mistake. The word worked how the poster used it. I was just correcting your definition.

So to revise my post above, one opinion is formed by precedent and Disney's press release and the other opinion is formed by fear.

And seriously ... Mickey & Minnie's new "barrista" costumes are just ADORABLE! I can't wait until they incorporate them into the TST M&G.

I think the updated blog language is pretty clear. From this point forward, I think we can rest on: "There are none so blind as those who will not see."

Now THAT'S better! Much clearer than - 'it's replacing MSB and reopening as a SB location.'

Would it be just the opposite of this thread if they took away my Orville Reddenbachers ? I mean would Disney start making their own popcorn? Because then I'll be SCREAMING !!

So, it appears the cinnamon roll people were correct. No more cinnamon rolls at MSB.

But, if you think for a minute that moving those rolls from MSB to Gaston's has anything to do with Starbucks you're clearly not thinking about how much strategic investment Disney has made in New Fantasyland.

I was thinking SB probably made that contingent since it would have competed with its own cinnamon bun and morning bun.

I believe it is also being sold in that new Dumbo Circus Tent.

Still not thrilled with the idea. Starbucks is available all over, I don't want it interfering with my favorite place! I trust Disney, but this I am not too sure about.
