a question for Disneyland regulars: has traffic picked up substantially at Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe since Starbucks added its presence?
According to my friends from out there, the place is selling like mad.

I haven't been to the bakery in awhile because it usually has lines out the door anyway.

Lets just calm down, me included, and wait ans see the ACTUAL results instead of spreading rumors and causing forum trouble.
Multiple threads on the same subject is no skin off my nose - I don't have to read it if I don't want to. The only issue is wasted bandwith.....

Based on the number of people who love Starbucks coffee, I would expect Main Street Bakery to be jam-packed most of the time after the refurb. I wonder if they've considered having two coffee bar areas in there to handle the volume?
Hard to say about traffic since it just opened, there wasn't a bakery there before. When I was there at the end of September, the lines were not real long but they were slow.

The one at DCA has 2 sides to order to better handle the crowds. That is probably why MSB is going to be closed for renovations, they have to change the layout. Starbucks is made to order, customized if you want. DCA works like a regular Starbucks, you go up to the cash register, order, pay, they make your drink and you pick it up at the end of the counter. Anything from the bakery case is handed to you at the register. The bakery case is in the middle between the 2 lines.

First of all, Disney is about the most corporate corporation out there. I guess that's missed on everyone.

Second, Disney has other corporation names throughout DW as they get sponsors for most attractions. Not like we don't see other corporation names throughout DW.

And let's not forget there used to be McDonald's fries in MK (I believe in Frontierland if I remember correctly). Also had a McDonalds in AK for many years. So it's not like it's a new thing.

I don't drink coffee but my wife does and her one big complaint about DW is the horrible coffee there. So they'll (at least) have good coffee--if you like Starbucks that is.

Anyway, with all of the things worth complaining about I think this one makes the least sense.
hmm...i don't know...maybe its because i/we spend a lot of money to go to WDW and experience things which are uniquely Disney- not spend a whole lot of money for something most can get in their car and drive five minutes to experience/purchase...

I don't get this, the coffee served there isn't Disney. it's Nescafe. I see guests saying Disney should produce their own coffee. I can't say it would be good coffee if they did that.

There are a lot of food vendors and restaurants at WDW that are operated by third parties on a contract with Disney. This is no different.

You read the subject line, you clicked on the thread and read it. You complained when all the discussion on this was in the theme parks board and made a new thread demanding that all MSB talk be moved here to restaurants board. Even after that was done, you still complain about the threads on this subject in this board? You will have to accept that this will be the topic du jour until the next big announcement.

Deal with it.

This thread was not on the restaurant board when the poster replied to it.

Same can be said about everything in Disney, even Disney merchandise can be found in Walmart, however what tickles most on us is that MSB is being changed, menu is being reduced, why? Why not to keep same menu but adding new things. I know replaced items will be found in other paces in MK but point was to have them there, in one place, esp. when it can be accompanied by great coffee like SB.

Thats why there was such an outrage.
Quote:
They made another announcement saying it would still be called "Main Street Bakery". If they would have said that in the first place, there would not have been such an outrage. Their original announcement was poorly worded.

Everyone isn't up in arms about it. I think its a great idea.

But please, enough with all the MSB/SB threads

difference is you can't go to Walmart, eat at Liberty Tree Tavern, then watch a Disney parade live then ride splash mountain, etc....

and i believe Carnation sponsored CP for the longest time...if they are just offering Starbucks coffee and Starbucks is sponsoring the MSB then i agree- its no big deal...but if they are changing the entire MSB around to make it feel more like Starbucks versus Disney, then people's angst is well founded...
