I agree with him, I think the only thing thats going to change is the coffee and the lines will be that much longer. When I heard Starbucks was coming I assumed they would be offering it in more than one location in MK.
Main St. Bakery already has huge lines in the morning, adding Starbucks to the menu will only make lines that much longer. I think they should have picked a different location in the park or have multiple locations serving Starbucks.
I would have preferred a different location, simply because of the crazy lines in the morning Would have been nice to have the morning coffee and breakfast crowd at least divided into two different locations

The familiar pastries will still be there along with the SB pastries.

Added bonus, somewhere will finally be serving coffee instead of recycled dirty dishwasher water
Sign me in to the second camp!

I have all the confidence in the world that DI will come true and the WDW location will be as good if not better than the one at DCA.

Overly sweet and you think Cinnabon would be an improvement???

YES, Cinnabon rolls are decent. The ones at MK are really horrible. Amazing that comment made you roll on the floor laughing.

Well, I have mixed feelings...

I don't like Starbucks coffee, at least the Starbucks in my area...very bitter coffee.

But, since Disney stopped actually making most of their own pastries several years ago and buying them elsewhere, the quality has suffered. So maybe it will be an improvement.

But what I really think will happen is that very little will change, except that they will be serving Starbucks coffee, probably the pastry offerings will be about the same. Disney has had sponsorships since the day Disneyland opened in 1955, so it really is kind of a minor change. Hills Brothers Coffee was a sponsor many years ago. I just hope they don't contract with Starbucks to supply all the coffee at the resorts and restaurants or I'll have to switch to tea for breakfast or drive offsite.

I doubt that Starbucks will become the main coffee at Disney. It's quite expensive when compared to Nestle/Nescafe and in reality would mean very little extra profit for Disney. Few people will decide to stay at a WDW resort just because it has Starbucks coffee. I have but.... Most people won't. Any added expense Disney has, must have a increase in profit or at least pay for itself.

Hoping that a few of the optimists are right and that it stays mostly Main St Bakery with a new addition of Starbucks, but all the articles I've read lead readers to believe the contrary. Wonder what will close in DHS and AK to make room for the Bucks

Just go look at the pictures of what they did at DL. There isn't a huge Starbucks sign or look to the place. Why would they do something different at DW.

They won't go look or WDW won't do it any differently? Never mind, both are probably true.
