Greedy corporations? That's redundant isn't it? I mean let's be honest, Disney is a greedy corporation they just make us feel better about it. Kinda like a greedy corporation with a cause ya know?

That's my argument! On our last trip, we had to buy a packed of band aids at Magic Kingdom. It was $6 for about 4 bandaids! I could have gotten a 31oz Iced Coffee and a Croissant for that!

It's hillarious how you start to look at things when it comes to what you love. Saving for a trip or right after a trip I find myself saying. . . "Do you know how many Mickey Krispie treats I could have bought with that?" Or "What took you so long? I could have ridden SM, BTM AND SM 3 times each by now!" Your point of reference is completely in another stratosphere, which can only mean one thing. . . The Disney (corporate greed) force is strong within you!

The only thing I've seen mentioned against Starbucks is that hipsters drink it. So clearly they are tucked in bed with satan himself.

I agree that I hate the Nestle corporation, hard to get away from them though.

I for one welcome our new barista overlords, if I can get a Holiday Peppermint Mocha Latte (tm) on my way to Space Mountain.

We say those things all the time! I love Starbucks but I love Disney too. I'm excited these two are coming together.

But those band aids were still a complete rip off!

See, I love this thread this time of night. . . All the daytime drama aside for the real important stuff. . . Disney-aholics-annonymous!

This idea is going over light a lead balloon. We want our bakery back. Big money does US in again.

Who cares if it's owned by Starbucks as long as it has the right theming?

It won't be owned by Starbucks, just sponsored by it. It will still be the Main Street Bakery. It will just have marginally better coffee and a variety of old and new food items.

Not for all of us. Just look at this thread (or the 712 other threads). Many of us are happy about the change (or, at the very least, willing to see what happens).

No one is taking away your bakery. Disney = big money.

Only some people want the bakery "back". Not that MSB is actually going anywhere, it's staying the MSB with Starbucks coffee alongside Disney treats. There will be more Disney treats then Starbucks, if using DCA as a rough blue print.

As for big money, what exactly do you call Disney? Although neither Starbucks or Disney actually make the world's largest 100 corporations.

Disney is always changing. My children will remember pooh fondly while I curse it every time we pass the picture of mr toad. Our children are allowed to have their own fond memories. Of course if all they hear is complaining that aspect will be ruined for them.

And again, what concrete evidence do you have that those buns will be gone? What's that? Right, you have no evidence.

I have no doubt you'll. be able to continue to stuff your face with them for years to one.
