Just a quick question on this has it been said anywhere that they are changing the menu other then adding the Starbucks beverages? Because as I understand from the DCA one Disney dictated what food they serve rather then Starbucks.

I predict that the lines will be enormous.

While this may upset some fans, this is going to be very popular.

There is a Bakery on Main Street??

I am confused.
I don't drink coffee, but I have heard many complaints from people that they don't like Disney World coffee. I also know many people who do like Starbucks coffee.

Maybe Disney is trying to give people what they want?

You must be going to the wrong McDonalds. I find their coffee a decent replacement while traveling. Muuuuch better than the Coma Coffee served at WDW.

Since Mc Donald's came out with the premium coffee it is acceptable, before that though it was as bad as Disney's. I agree about the sweet ones with all the flavors, they are tooooooooooooooooo sweet, but their regular coffee is very decent.

I used to love DD, but they changed something, it isn't as good as it used to be and DD's aren't consistent, one DD is good, another is weak. That's one of the things I like about Starbucks, no matter which one I go to it tastes the same.

I agree the Starbucks in MK is going to be very popular....I just want it to be popular somewhere other than in the MSB. I still say Terrace Noodle Nothing is the spot for it.

No one goes to Starbucks for their pastries which are unremarkable at best. If this tired selection is what is offered at WDW, I will not be alone in opting for a Venti and skipping the pastry altogether. Always glad for a good cup of coffee.

I'm not suggesting that the place isnt already crowded.

I'm suggesting that no matter how much folks disapprove, this is still going to be popular...if not more popular, as it's something guests recognize.

So all the more reason not to put it in MSB no? I agree the SB in DLR does look nice and is well themed, but it doesn't seem like there is as large a space for it using MSB. Since the line there already goes out the door sometimes, imagine what it'll be like adding time consuming to make drinks to the mix? SB people are aware and used to this, but it's going to stink and possibly be a deterrent for the folks just wanting a cinnamon roll or ice cream cookie sandwhich. So why not a different location and thus two places earning good revenue?

Because location counts. Starbucks isn't going to pay Disney the money it has paid and then settle for the noodle station.
