But none of those are actually from Disney. They are blogs online written by someone with little or no connection to Disney whatsoever. MSB will remain MSB with a Starbucks inside.

And this is the Starbucks press release saying a Starbucks Cafe will open at MK. This sounds like replacing to me...

You do realize how old that article is correct? I realize it is Starbucks press release, but I still don't see where it says "Starbucks is replacing Main Street Bakery. They talk about what they are going to do to the new Starbucks location (simply meaning, where it is going to be served) in DL and we have ALL seen pictures how it is NOT a Starbucks!

I just can't imagine being so emotionally attached to any one thing in a theme park that I'd cancel trips, sign useless petitions, cry, whine, etc.
EXACTLY!!!! Get a grip people!!

This thread seems to be more than done.

This is from April 2012. It doesn't even mention Main St Bakery.

&ldquo;We know food and beverage offerings are an important part of the memories our guests make at Disney Parks and now they will be able to enjoy their favorite Starbucks® beverage as part of their experience,&rdquo; said Maribeth Bisienere, vice president, food and beverage line of business for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. &ldquo;Many of our guests have shared their passion for Starbucks with us, and we look forward to making their feedback a reality as we debut the first location at Disney California Adventure.&rdquo;

Huh, it sounds like they "get it"

I actually agree that the thread is done. There are too many people on here that are attacking the situation (on both sides). I posted that I was sad about the change and asked if anyone remembered McDonald's and all I have done since yesterday is defend every little thing I have said. I don't believe the change will ruin my memories, nor do I believe that Starbucks is the devil spawn. I just feel that aesthetically, it is a bad choice. Whether it's a bakery from the outside and a Starbuck's inside. It's a Starbucks. It would be nicer if they put it in Tomorrowland or something...that's all.

I've made similar comments. When Big Thunder Mountain was refurbished, it didn't re open as the Men in Black Ride to Universal did it?
How's this:

Old sign, before refurb: "Main Street Bakery"

New sign, after refurb: "Main Street Bakery (featuring Starbucks)"

In DIsneyland, Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café was given the Starbucks makeover. It's still called Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café

Here's a tour. Yes, the word Starbucks appears on the side of the building.

Would Tim Hortons have been better received and applauded?

Me thinks so.

My guess is that some view SB as an evil empire...conquering it's way over every street corner, bookstore, airport, grocery chain, hospital, etc.

Btw - I've never had TH, but several of my FB friends rave about how much better it is.

What it actually says
At Magic Kingdom Park, Main Street Bakery will close for refurbishment in January 2013 and reopen as a Starbucks location in early summer. At Epcot, Fountain View will close in March 2013 and reopen as a Starbucks location in midsummer.

Note that they do not say 'reopen' when referring to the Fountain View in Epcot

What some of you read
At Magic Kingdom Park, Main Street Bakery will close FOR-EVA in January 2013 and the demolition guys will work through the night to totally obliterate MSB. Every single cinnamon bun will be squashed flat and you will hear the screams. The Men in Black Starbucks Uniforms will move in silently and open a huge evil corporate branch of Starbucks in the early summer. They will play painful jazz CDs and have a HUGE illuminated white and green sign outside totally blocking the view of the Castle..... what was that about Epcot???

But if you look at the pictures from DCA it looks nothing like a Starbucks. It fits the theme both inside and out. They've already stated that it will fit the Main St theme and look like something from early 20th century.

There are no words..... seriously.....

And just a throw away comment, I'm sitting here, replying to this thread, while eating a Starbucks Christmas Tree Cookie. No joke!
