Sorry folks you're not reading the announcement closely enough. It's a Starbucks with no OBVIOUS signage. Here's some points from the release:

"The Main Street Bakery will keep its name and theming" - Great it will look traditional. One issue solved.

"Itíll also continue to serve Disney favorites like cookies, brownies and seasonal cupcakes, in addition to Starbucks signature beverages and other items." - They aren't saying its the same stuff they were selling, they said they'll sell cookies, brownies and seasonal cupcakes, just like all Starbucks do.

My personal favorite line that confirms the above statement as true: "And for those of you who asked in comments, the cinnamon rolls are available at Gastonís Tavern in New Fantasyland, and the ice cream sandwiches are available at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, U.S.A.Ē In other words. You will not find them at the Bakery, go somewhere else.

Sorry. It's a Starbucks and there's nothing we can do about it because it will make an unholy amount of money. They still don't quite understand the issue is the coffee EVERYWHERE not the darn bakery products........

uh...it is the MSB that will now feature starbucks products and disney products instead of nescafe products and disney products. why is this so freaking complicated? yes of course the menu will change. but the menu has been changing already.

I realize I'm exaggerating here but saying the above is sort of like saying "they turned Test Track into a Chevy dealership".

888 posts for coffee and cookies? Read em all, very entertaining. It seems clear to me from all the information that there is going to be a big green and white Starbucks sign hanging over Main St ruining my photos of the castle.

Dabelsteen;46700972Sorry folks you're not reading the announcement closely enough. It's a Starbucks with no OBVIOUS signage. Here's some points from the release:

"The Main Street Bakery will keep its name and theming" - Great it will look traditional. One issue solved.

You are correct and yes, they said this from the beginning.

"Itll also continue to serve Disney favorites like cookies, brownies and seasonal cupcakes, in addition to Starbucks signature beverages and other items." - They aren't saying its the same stuff they were selling, they said they'll sell cookies, brownies and seasonal cupcakes, just like all Starbucks do.

Ummm, no. They say they will continue to serve Disney favorites like. . . (that means some previous "favorites", clearly at the discretion of Disney, from Disney's own products. Like, as in such as, for example, ect. . .) They are exactly saying they are going to be selling some, not all, but some stuff they used to sell as you put it.

My personal favorite line that confirms the above statement as true: "And for those of you who asked in comments, the cinnamon rolls are available at Gastons Tavern in New Fantasyland, and the ice cream sandwiches are available at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, U.S.A. In other words. You will not find them at the Bakery, go somewhere else.

This is (as per Disney usual) ambiguous, which no one has facts on so whatever either side say's is and will be speculation. They are saying where some particular favorites will be sold (and have been sold even during the time MSB has been open selling these items). Maybe they will be there when MSB returns, maybe not. The world may never know. . . until of course the refurbishment is over and all is right with the world again.

Sorry. It's a Starbucks and there's nothing we can do about it because it will make an unholy amount of money. They still don't quite understand the issue is the coffee EVERYWHERE not the darn bakery products........

I'm sorry for those who are so devastated as well, this really can not be good for some people's blood pressure. There was nothing any of us could do about it before, but I thank Disney for saying everything short of "GET OVER IT" to everyone. Disney will make the money. Starbucks' check has already been written and cashed. Disney is ready to sit back get over like. . . like. . . like dare I say, a fat rat!

Yes, I'm serious. I was lucky enough to be behind three of them (at different times/days) a couple weeks ago.

A very small percentage of WDW visitors are on the Dis.

The cinnamon rolls we the best! I am sure they are NOT THE SAME at Gastons tavern. Ridiculous. I go on vacation to get away from reality. Now I gotta look at Starbucks??? Their coffee is HORRIBLE TO BEGIN WITH. I am very disappointed.

I'll ask you what I asked another poster. Do you walk through the parks with blinders on? That's the only way to keep out reality. You know, all those Coke bottles and other corporate symbols.

Coke is one thing, the snooty elitism of Starbucks (or as we call it, FourBucks) is quite another.
The danger is overbranding, you don't want to sell Main Street. This is Americana, there is no vintage feel to FourBucks.

Right, because Disney fanatics aren't snooty at all, and snobs in AMERICA? That's ludicrous!

I love Starbucks. Starbucks in Disney will make me happy. However, Starbucks taking over the Main Street Bakery DOES NOT make me happy.

They should brew Starbucks coffee (kind of how they exclusively serve Coke products), but that should be it. I should be able to order my coffee, it be made with Starbucks brand, and I should be able to drink it with my Cinnamon Roll or big Ice Cream Cookie sandwich that I was able to order in the same line!
