The Starbucks "bakery" items are lackluster at best and their cinnamon roll holds nary a drop of wax to the original MSB cinn roll... Walt Disney would be losing his proverbial marbles and perhaps spouting off like Donald Duck... He would've figured out a way to balance the sponsorship with the creativity of the bakers and make it all work and preserve the intent of Main Street.

(Perhaps I should expound upon this and email Mr. Staggs??)
Apologies if someone has already posted this BUT....

Perhaps you'll remember Casa de Fritos in Disneyland? Or how about Aunt Jemima's Pancake House?

Casa de Fritos originally opened the month after the opening of Disneyland in 1955 next to Aunt Jemima's Pancake House in an area called New Orleans Street.

I think Walt would be fine with it considering almost all of the original Main Street in DL was comprised of non-Disney stores. You could buy bras and pianos after you we're done going on rides.

Well, based on my observations in the past month since opening, Starbucks better pick up or it will be gone too. The store has been relatively empty with lots of CM's standing around in the 5 times I've walked in. Lines are overflowing at every other QS. Maybe it's the lackluster food or maybe it's the fact there is NO seating! Whose brilliant idea was that?? No tables inside or out. The best of the Bakery is gone and honestly it doesn't seem as though that many people want a coffee "to go".

That's probably the issue. Not once have i ever been in the park wishing for a cup of coffee. Disney Land / California Adventure has a similar setup but hot chocolate is served and that is a busy counter. Not sure if it is a Starbucks or any other brand or just disney

Interesting. I think Starbucks is a great idea. The seating may be a big part of it, also the unfamiliarity; it is new. However, maybe everyone already had their coffee at the resort. Maybe if they put Starbucks there. I think it is a matter of wait and see. It is hard to draw hard conclusions from 5 visits. What time of day did you visit?

This article takes on a more neutral tone.

Disney removes Main Street Bakery in favor of Starbucks http://investorplace.com/2013/06/dis...oversy-ensues/

The DIS blog article: Starbucks opens at the Magic Kingdom! http://blog.wdwinfo.com/2013/06/18/s...magic-kingdom/

I agree and will miss the bakery but the new coffee house looks pretty darn good and the world did not end.
Walt would be having a cigarette, drinking a cup, counting his money and wondering how he could get tourists to spend more cash at the park.

Not trying to draw conclusions, just making an observation. I'm local and visit at all times of the day. Actually, a friend is training for the EP location so we have made a point to visit at different times and days of the week. Stopped a couple times near opening, midday, afternoon parade time and early evening. Haven't seen a line or a throng. Pretty surprising, that's how we came to the idea that it might be the lack of seating.

PP poster mentioned Walt having coffee and a cigarette - well he wouldn't be in the shop because there is no place to sit down.

Would you like some coffee with that

I never have understood the Starbucks craze. I'm just a black coffee drinker and their coffee drinks don't punch my ticket. And sadly I know I don't go to experience the magic to get what I can find on every street corner in the good ol' USA. Seems to me they dropped the creative ball on this one.

I agree...I hope they restore it back to the "OLD' Main St. Bakery with all those goodies before I come back for a visit !!!!

Maybe they should open up a Starbuck's kiosk in each resort ( like a previous poster stated)...so visitors can get their morning coffee there ,if they'd like.

Please bring back the OLD BAKERY and it's baked goods

Happy!

I love my starbucks! I think the seating and location is off. It should be at the resorts. But no lines sounds like a good deal for my visit in two weeks.

I can't imagine why they're not doing gangbusters. Personally, I would love a cup of piping hot coffee outside when it's 95 degrees and humid.

I'm not sure I want to walk around the MK with a hot cup of coffee, but what I could see doing is drinking one back at the resort while the kids are getting ready.

I think Starbucks at disney is a great idea, but just in the wrong places. I think they would do gangbusters at the resorts.

I don't have a problem with Starbucks, but I do have a problem with them cutting out food items and seating. This used to be a nice breakfast stop for us. Now there is no point.

Also, while hot coffee is the last thing I want in the heat, I will definitely be getting frappuccino and my shaken ice tea lemonade in August!!!
