Main Street Bakery...like any other Starbucks now?

Is the Main Street Bakery the same as any other Starbucks now? Or do they still bake some of the same items they used to? We used to enjoy their cinnamon rolls very much and I'm wondering if they still have them, or if they still have any of the Disney-only items?

There are a few Disney items, and I believe they are only sold after a certain time (11am maybe?).

The cinnamon roll is no longer there but can be found at Gaston's tavern but apparently the frosting is different.

Ok, thanks for this info. I wish the cinnamon roll was still there. DH and I used to get one to share before leaving the park for our afternoon break.

Which Disney items are there? Anything different than other spots? Or is it the usual Rice Krispie treats, plain cupcakes, etc.? Trying to see if it's still worth paying a visit (not fans of Starbucks...I know, not typical of New Yorkers!). We do stay at BWV so we have the Boardwalk Bakery to enjoy, but we used to love Main Street bakery.

I can't answer your questions - we haven't been since they changed the bakery over.

I can tell you that I read on here (DIS) that the 'old' Main Street Bakery cinnamon rolls had white frosting (which sounds right we used to love them too).....apparently the ones at Gaston's have brownish frosting (maple syrup flavored?). So you know what to kind of look out for - according to reviews on here - white = good; brown = not as good.

Not a fan of Starbucks either so we're really sad to lose Main Street Bakery!

There are a billion posts about. I'm sure if you did a search you could find out the exact info you're looking for!

From photos i've seen and reviews i've read, it sounds like it's just like any other Starbucks (except a little more pricey) and there are more restrictions - no refills for a discounted price, you can't redeem Starbucks rewards, etc. They do serve some Disney bakery treats but it's only after 11 or 11:30.

I'm a HUGE Starbucks fan but I can go to Starbucks anytime when i'm at home...when i'm at Disney, I want Disney stuff. So i'm a little disappointed about Starbucks taking over MSB

Sort of like the homogenization of every shopping center. At least when I travel whether for vacation or sports, I can eat and drink the same old stuff . Wouldn't want anything unique.

Yes, it's disappointing to me too. I like the more unique things at Disney that are different than home. I guess I will utilize the bakeries in the WS at Epcot more, as well as the BW Bakery when I want something sweet!

Is the main street confectionary at least still the same?

It sure seems that way from what I've been reading! What a disappointment. Main Street bakery has always been an old favorite, now it's just a memory.

Oh Yes. We were there in October, looked at the menu, and walked out. The Main Street Bakery and Fountainview in Epcot are both a Starbucks on steroids, but not in the nicest way. This is definitely a step backward for the Disney Experience.

Not for everyone. My wife loves Starbuck's coffee and bemoans the lack of good coffee at WDW so for her it is definitely a positive. And for the boys and I it is a plus because a happy Mom means more trips to Disney.

This will be our first trip since the change over. Since I never went into the original Main Street Bakery, I won't know what I missed; which I guess is a blessing. However, on a side note, I love Starbucks coffee and plan on stopping in here for the very first time just because it has Starbucks coffee.
