Wow, seriously?!? Somebody better have a waaaaaaaaambulance on stand-by at the DISboards then to deal with the outrage!

The coffee and pastry items offered by Starbucks are better than any offered at MSB (the ONE good thing I ever had at MSB was the cookie sandwich, which is offered in multiple other locations) and the atmosphere won't change that drastically, especially if they're even making sure the employee costumes fit the location. So I don't have a problem with this at all.

While I'm sad to hear they are replacing MSB, you have to remember that WDW is a business and a Starbucks is very profitable for them - especially when they've been hearing so many complaints about the terrible Nescafe coffee for years.

Some of that would actually be an improvement.

Actually, Main Street has already been homogenized and changed like crazy. Gone are the games and magic shop and theater and some of the other things that made it so unique. It's really mostly just one big Disney Store now.

A petition will be a fruitless effort. It didn't save VMK, it didn't save the Adventure Club, it didn't save countless attractions and it is not going to keep this Starbucks from being added. The wheels are in motion, contracts have been signed, blueprints are drawn up and hands have been shook.

I am sure Disney appreciates the passion their fans and guests have, but in the end, as we have seen time and time again, it is about money.

Just add this to the list of things that people complain about, but praise after it opens and they realize it wasn't that bad

I only hope that the folks protesting so loudly on this thread about Starbucks on Main Street patronize the local bakery businesses in their home towns, cities, & villages.

I am talking about "real" bakeries, and not purchasing baked products in grocery stores, big box stores, etc. After all, the small family businesses are the "authentic" bakery stores and should be helped economically so they are able to stay in business.

Let's not make this a "do as I say and not as I do" type of issue. Make sure you are spending your dollars in your local bakeries and not in chain store imitation bakeries.

disclaimer: this was intended to address the cinnamon roll, croissant, and other pastry issue being discussed. Coffee shops featuring coffee drinks as their primary offering are not meant to be included.

I was thinking the EXACT same thing. Pretty soon, people will be singing the praises of this place on the Restaurant board the way they praise 'Ohana and Dole Whips. We will see phrases like: "best I've ever had"; "greatest"; and "must do" . And ten years from now when the contract isn't renewed and Dunkin' Donuts starts supplying the coffee, there will be a new thread just like this one with people lamenting the passage of the old and fearing the new.

Believe me, people looking for Starbucks have a hard time finding it because it's so subtle. Also, the CMs are not in Starbucks aprons - they're in costume, albeit I think they are a light green. And they have all the traditional DL pastries - way more offerings than a typical SB. So I think people need to relax - no one has said they're taking away the Main Street pastries... just adding to the offerings.

I'm just a gal that likes unique items a places. I've only been in starbucks on the East coast and the one in jersey is exactly like the one in Philly.

The Starbucks at MK and EPCOT will look nothing like outside Starbucks. If you google photos of the DCA location, you will clearly see how well it is themed.
I can't believe the hysteria Starbucks has managed to create. People are cancelling trips, claiming Disney only cares about profit (they are a business, otherwise entry would be free!)

Disney is a business, first and formost. They actually are listening to patrons who have been complaining about their horrid coffee for years and years!

To all the people who are complaining, I hope that when you're in WDW you don't:

Drink Coke Products - sponsored by Coca Cola
Don't eat Ice Cream Sandwiches - Nestle Toll House Cookies
Never bought anything from the McDonald's Stands.
Rode Test Track - sponsored by General Motors
Rode Mission Space - sponsored by Hewlitt Packard
Bought anything from the Camera Shops or used Photopass - Kodak
Used a Guide Map - Clear Kodak advertising on these
Bought a cup of coffee - sponsored by Nestle
Went into the Land Pavilion - has been sponsored by Nestle
Used your Disney VISA - Sponsored by VISA
Bought or visited The Tea Caddy shop at EPCOT - sponsored by R. Twinings & Company Limited
Bought from or visited Weinkeller, in the Germany Pavilion - sponsored by
P.J. Valkenberg
Bought anything or visited Sculpture D'Arte, in the Italy Pavilion - sponsored by Miller Imports (Giuseppe Armani)

And the list goes on................................................ .....

Disney is a business first and foremost. They have corporate sponsors and Starbucks has now been integrated as a presence. I don't think that this is the "end of Disney as we know it" we people seem to think. It's a coffee store!

No, there is no huge Starbucks sign. Check out the DCA location and you will see exactly what it looks like

I can't wait! The only item I like at the Main Street bakery was the breakfast croissant. I am excited about the new options. I read an article on the Disney Food Blog about the one added to Disneyland. It looks so good. I hope they do as good a job here at the Main Street MK location & the Fountain View location in Epcot.

Here is a copy of the review: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2012/0...ith-starbucks/

I am excited!

I do not support hysteria of canceling trips and I do see Disney as business but why not to place SB somewhere else. Why did they have to mess with icon, I do not get it. Place it somewhere else in parks and put a huge SB sign, I would not care, but MSB, no way. There are plenty of empty spots in parks, why not to use them. I see it as a poor decision.
