Main Street Bakery is not original anyway, the only thing that is unique is the theming....which is staying. This is like getting upset over MouseGear going away stating that you'll never be able to buy those clothes anywhere again.

I love Disney, but there are very few proprietary products there anymore.

So, basically this going to be like the Karamell-Küche caramel shop in Epcot sponsored by Stork/Werther's Original Caramels?

I was originally upset because i thought it was going to be a Starbucks. The only time we actually go into msb is while waiting for a parade, we go in and grab a slice of cake. So as long as the theme remains the same i welcome it. I am not a coffee drinker so it doesn't matter to me what coffee they sell. I am guessing this will be like all the other places that sell Starbucks coffee. I know at my daughter's university the library sells Starbucks but she cant use a gift card there so I'm guessing it will be the same here. The library doesn't have one of the neon Starbucks signs that i was worried about so im sure msb wont either.

The Starbucks locations at Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot will both offer the full complement of Starbucks® signature beverages, artisan breakfast sandwiches and a wide selection of baked goods, including muffins, scones and specialty treats.

I just went back and read the Disney Blog again. It states," At Magic Kingdom Park, Main Street Bakery will close for refurbishment in January 2013 and will reopen as a Starbucks location in early summer." I think it means the MSB will still be there, just that it will be the only location that sells Starbucks coffee.

Here, it does not look like quote, I have no idea how to do it but it is from original article. I even bolded parts indicating change. Notice, "will be designed" indicating change as MSB is designed already. Notice, CM costumes do not indicate present MSB costumes but something that will go with a theme. And of course I bolded part where they say it MSB will reopen into SB location. They do not refer to it as MSB anymore, it is SB location. I am sure you saw this before and I do not see the need for me to post it but just because, I did. Feel free to interpret what is written in black and white anyway you like. If you refuse to see, you refuse to see it. That is it.

I was going to bring that up, but I've been around here long enough to know it won't make any difference with anyone.

The key words you haven't bolded are

If MSB was going completely it would have said "will close and a Starbucks location will open in its place in 2013" there would be no reference to refurbishment.

Thats my take.

At DCL, I wouldn't have known it was a Starbucks, I had to ask where the new Starbucks was! I only knew one was going to be there from being on the DIS.

OK, so what if it opens as a Starbucks. It will still be owned by Disney, it may be manned by CM's (we don't know that for sure but irrelevant IMO), it will be themed to fit the surrounding area, it will offer both SB and old bakery items and the nasty Nescafe will be going away. I can't see any downside to this.

Someone mentioned the caramel shop in Epcot. I didn't see any wailing when that company "took over". Why the fuss over one shop on Main Street that serves bad coffee and pastries brought in from some nameless factory?
