The danger is overbranding, you don't want to sell Main Street. This is Americana, there is no vintage feel to FourBucks.

No wait you totally misunderstood my post. I like Starbucks and badly want them to replace every coffee cart in the parks with a Starbucks cart (or Peets, Seattles Best, Dunkin Donuts...don't care just not instant coffee!)

My objection is they replaced a BAKERY with the garbage items sold at Starbucks. Even Starbucks doesn't tout there pastries as good....That has to mean something!

As far as Corporate symbols. Isn't the whole park a corporate symbol? Every ride at one time or another has had a corporate sponsor. Not a biggie for me. I just want the dang cinnamon roll!!!! (Gastons are not the same, they use a Maple icing)

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!

I hate Starbucks and the bakery just fits better with the theme of that area. We aren't going until March.

That's a good idea

Don't you know that Disney vetts all their decisions through the Dis Boards. This was all obviously a test to see how the decision would go over. When they saw the reaction they obviously convened an emergency meeting with the top brass at Starbucks and changed the plan.

I'd be totally cool with this if they were keeping Main St. Bakery as is, and just serving Starbucks coffee and products. Bleh.

ok...cool. but why make fun of people who like it? and also should disney base branding decisions on your personal preferences? i doubt there is anyone who likes all of the brands that are present.

"It’ll 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 Gaston’s 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.

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 was wondering if someone actually understood update, you did. The rest of excitement around update reminds me MIB " We are looking for the best of the best,.. with honors..." situation.

It all plays into the psychological makeups of some DISers. Hundreds( sometimes thousands) spent on the vacation. But, let' s try to hook up a crockpot in the hotel room, have 3 people share one cheeseburger( or cinnamon roll) and complain that Starbuck's will be too pricey. Disney overcharged for the crappy Nescafe coffee too.
