If they simply added the starbucks beverages to the MSB and left everything else as is...I am guessing a lot less people would be upset. All along many people's gripe was that the coffee was no good. Assuming you believe Starbucks coffee is better, it would be a simple solution. Just serve Starbucks coffee and don't mess with anything else.

As long as the outside of the store stays in keeping with the rest of Main Street, they can add or take away all the things they want inside.

The one and only time I ever tried a Main Street bakery cinnamon bun it was not very good - dry and tasteless. I think it was stale and I never tried another one.

I very seldom even go into the Main Street Bakery. It's too small for the crowds and most likely will be worse when it becomes a Starbucks.

I should add that I don't drink coffee. I've never gone into a Starbucks to try their tea or hot chocolate. I guess I'm too cheap. I can make it in the room or food court cheaper. LOL

I agree! They added mermaids to Pirates which sure, I enjoyed but how many updates is that attraction going to get, and all whilst ingnoring others that could really use the attention.

If the Bakery redo isn't done properly to where it's insulting to the rest of Main Street and it's theming, I'm pretty sure I'd get my coffee and what not elsewhere. Even if I have to truck all the way back to Fantasyland for the swill. For me it's not about the Cinnamon rolls at all but about the theming and respecting what's there already. Main Street is such a special place, it would be horendous if they screwed it up but I have faith now that I've calmed down, that they won't.

Looks like Starbucks has settled on the coffee it will serve at the MK.

I don't really like the cinnamon buns. And they taste more like maple than cinnamon, IMO. I get the fruit tart.

I am THRILLED that they'll be serving Starbucks. Coffee is a vice that I managed to avoid, but I'm so tired of listening to coffee peeps complain about the coffee at Disney.

I don't think they had to re-do the whole place and am a little concerned about how it will turn out.

Main Street has sooo gone to hell over the years, though...it is just one more loss, one more little disappointment.

And I like Ellen and TGMR.

I don't know about the coffee, but it certainly sounds like Starbucks has already started drinking the Disney "Punch" ....I like the way they word, "because customers have DEMANDED more premium products." Sounds familiar -No?

Walking on eggshells here since this topic is hot, hot, hot.

Has anyone visited the Starbucks location at Disney's California Adventure? I was there last August and I found it to be better themed, better designed and employees had better 'costumes' than the Main Street Bakery.

They also served Mickey Mouse cookies, Rice Crispie Treats (the standard Disney bakery items basicaly) along with some Starbucks staples such as scones and muffins. It seemed like the bakery had been (to use an Imagineering term) plussed and offered a variety of options, many of which uniquely Disney.

Bad coffee was always my main complaint whenever I visited a Disney Park in the past. And I must admit, visiting the Main Street bakery was never a postive experience for me. Did not enjoy the coffee, the food, the service, layout, costumes and general look of the place. Yes to some that's heresy but that's just me....

My 2 cents...

I think it's interesting that this poll has more than 50% chiming in on "I don't care". The poll that DU put up did not have an "I don't care" option. I think the closest it had was, let Starbucks sell coffee, but leave the rest as is.

Are the cinnamon rolls really that popular? I have tried them twice and found them mediocre at best.

Who says the cinnamon rolls are going away? From what I gather, the press release stated where they will be available when the MSB is closed during renovations. I didn't see any mention that the popular items will be removed at all. They just won't be available for sale when the bakery is closed.

For me it has little to do with cinnamon buns and coffee.
My son who turns 20 next month has his first trip to Disney at 11 months old. Our bodies just instinctively turn in to the MSB for our breakfast during each visit.........more nostalgia here.
