The purpose of this thread is to discuss a petition regarding the bakery, not discuss the use of "iconic." Please keep all comments to the topic at hand.

That petition is a an iconic waste of effort as Disney will not use it. The Icon that was the MSB was not really an Icon. I do not think of MSB when I think on the Magic Kingdom. I think of my brother running naked down Main Street. That was ICONIC!!

New word, Haughty!

Usually, I get my coffee from a local place. Starbucks is a decent second, tho. Frappacino..yum.. The pastries aren't bad.
The plain coffee, however, I think is gack. But there are folks hooked on the stuff. WDW made a very shrewd business decision.

Do you ever feel uncomfortable reading a debate? I sorta did in this case...

Back on topic, I signed the petition but I wish I could qualify my answer. I DO like Starbucks hot cocoa (I'm not a coffee drinker) and I like to be able to dash across the street from work to get some when I'm chilly. But the mental image of seeing THAT Starbucks on Main Street is sad to me. So I truly hope Disney makes Starbucks comport its look to match the surroundings seamlessly. I don't want a giant circle-type sign, I don't want the cheesy smattering of so-so pastries and I really don't want that lady in Prada shoes and a Gucci bag (tsk tsk for not matching, ya rich lady) tapping her feet with impatience while ordering her non-fat, skim milk, extra caffiene mocha. That's all I'm saying. Keep it themed correctly with the right "air" about it and I'll be happy

Now that is an image I would love to see in the parks! I'm not a label hound, so I don't even know if I could identify Prada and Gucci, but would find it hilarious to see someone doing that at Disney. I would follow her to see her ride Splash in that get-up!

I'd love to see that too, and the she goes to city hall to complain that she got wet on splash mountain.

There's a guy that frequents my local S'bucks that drives a Lotus.

All I can say is "Who drives a LOTUS??"

I'm excited about Starbucks. But I am sad about the bakery.

For years (like 20 yrs ago) It was my moms and my tradition to go get a rice crispy treat bigger than your head and watch the parade. Now we go get a pre-made not fresh bagged pre-packaged rice crispy treat smaller than my hand. It's not the same but we changed. It's a fond memory we have moved to Goofy candy shop for our treats.

I do like going to the bakery and getting something. I just hope they keep it fresh.

I am looking forward to a LONG LINE to get my salted Carmel mocha. It will be nice for late night parties.

Now can we get Concourse Steakhouse or Mr. Toad back.

Any chance Starbucks will offer fast passes??

I'm jealous of the labels and only offended by the impatience

I wouldn't know a Lotus if it pulled up right beside me. Does it have a flowery logo?

Back on topic: I'm not bothered by the change as long as Disney does what they've described they are going to do.

I'm not a coffee drinker at all and find SB Tea adequate...we do like the odd frappuccino though and I love their chai latte ( steamed milk). I have been somewhat surprised at the controversy due to the vilification of the current coffee offerings by so many.

Lets break this down and get to the heart of this because I am hearing different stories. Is it....

Starbucks replacing Main Street Bakery

or

Main Street Bakery now serving Starbucks Coffee

or

Starbucks being brought in, molded into the existing MSB.


What do you think?
