All you naysayers need to stop and think. They arent going to make the bakery into a starbucks shop with a green awning. It will basically stay what it looks like with starbucks coffee. They just finished a refirbishment on all of main street this year on all the buildings...Disney has done studies and has probably learned that many peopke go off grounds to get starbucks coffee. In Disney's eyes why not keep the people on the grounds and give them what they want. Only logical... Every year we recieve a survey and one question is what would you like to see Disney have. I am sure many people say starbucks coffee. They are only give what the customers want. It is a business decision but ine that benefits the conusmers as well. I say great job Disney and keep up the great work!!

Somewhat depressing news. My real fear though was that they were going to change the outside. As long as the look and feel of Main Street stays in tact I'll be alright. But they need to hold on to those ham and cheese croissants. If they go I'll be so sad!

Someone mentioned the long lines flooding out onto Main St. for coffee. Really hope that doesn't happen.

The vast majority of the complainers on here clearly haven't seen what the BV Street location is like at Californa Adventure, and probably won't bother to look. It looks nothing like a Starbucks - It won't destroy the magic any more than the 30million Coca Cola or Dasani logos you see on bottles all day in every park...

The legitimate argument I've seen is the crowding, but Disney has always been righteous with their crowd planning, so I don't think it's going to be ridiculous - they're all faster to get than some of the QS locations like Pecos Bills et al...

This is a great move for coffee lovers everywhere and I for one am looking forward to what they do on the interior to bring it into the fold like they did in Cali.

Starbucks press release:

The Starbucks Experience Comes to Disney Theme Parks


First of six locations to debut at Disney California Adventure this June



SEATTLE & LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., April 23, 2012 - Starbucks Coffee Company (NASDAQ: SBUX) and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts today announced that Starbucks will soon be available at all Disney theme parks at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., and Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

This summer, the first of six Starbucks cafés will open at Disney California Adventure. The additional stores are planned for Disneyland Park and Walt Disney World Resort, including locations at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

“Starbucks and Disney have many things in common,” said Arthur Rubinfeld, president, Global Development, for Starbucks. “We share a passion for providing excellent customer service, delivering high quality in everything we do, and ensuring that every experience with our brand exceeds our customers’ expectations. This is something our customers and partners (employees) have asked for through MyStarbucksIdea.com since the site launched more than four years ago, so we are pleased to bring this idea to life.”

Starbucks is not completely new to Disney. In June 2009, the company opened a store in Disney Village at Disneyland Paris, which has become a guest favorite.

At Disney California Adventure, Starbucks will be located in the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café on Buena Vista Street, a place that transports guests to 1920s Los Angeles when Walt Disney arrived in California and a cup of coffee was the perfect way to jumpstart a busy day. The store’s location plays off the Spanish/Mexican architecture of the period, and baristas will wear 1920s-inspired attire.

The café will serve Starbucks items including coffee and espresso beverages, Frappuccino® blended beverages, and signature breakfast sandwiches and pastries. Guests also will have their choice of Disney favorites, including signature sandwiches and other items, as well as delicious desserts and sweet treats.

“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,” said Maribeth Bisienere, vice president, food and beverage line of business for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “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.”

There are other options!

This is so sad. Main street is supposed to represent Walts home town and not a commercial area! Just serve starbucks coffee inside and don't change the outside! Keep it Main Street Bakery!!! This is NOT what Walt would have wanted. I guess there are a lot of petitions going around to boycott this idea! I will GLADLY sign one.

I totally agree. I am hoping the outside will still look the same but the Starbucks is available inside. But would Starbucks allow that?

I'm pretty sure the entirety of the bakery will remain the same (exterior and most interior area). My biggest issue, as is others', is the growing lines and food. The bakery is already jam packed throughout the day, and we're lucky the line doesn't extend outside. With the whole allure of Starbucks however, I'm sure the lines and seating will stretch beyond their capacity (I've seen lines of 60 at my college's Starbucks while much cheaper, and better, coffee is available right next to it). I'm truly hopeful the good ole baked goods will remain in tact, but I'm sure some sort of dent will be put into them to accompany Starbucks own scones and muffins. Personally I have no problem drinking the Nescafe they have now. Sure, its not great, but Starbucks black coffee is worlds worse (I'd much prefer them serving Dunkin Donuts coffee ).

I think that Starbucks would be okay with it as long as the window said "We proudly serve Starbucks Coffee" like I have seen other places. I just don't want the iconic Main Street Bakery turned into a Starbucks that you can see on any other corner in America. Keep it Main Street Bakery!!

Corporate sponsorship and logos on MK's Main Street is nothing new. From the very beginning Disney has had corporate sponsorship on Main Street and elsewhere in MK. The ice cream parlor has had various sponsors with their logos on the inside and outside of the parlor. Nestlé's logo used to be on the signs of every venue where coffee was sold. The photo store has had both the Kodak and Fuji Film logos on it over the years. Disney says the Starbucks version of the bakery will continue the Main Street theme. I'm sure the company will stay true to its word.

Let's not forget that Walt built DL with corporate sponsorship of the park and many of its origin components.

There was however...the "MAXWELL COFFEE HOUSE".

Great point. Although I am for Starbucks in Disney and was sad for them putting it in the iconic location, I suppose it is for the best. I mean, in DCA they don't even call it Starbucks but the Fiddle, Fiffer, and Pratical Cafe. It does not scream Starbucks chain which I am sure will be the same at Magic Kingdom. I am sure they will keep all the iconic food items. Yes, the long lines will be disappointing, but I'd rather have better coffee.

Totally agree with this my DS actually noticed and counted just how many Starbucks there were between our house and the mall when he was 4. There were 7 then and 9 now!

I 100% agree with this. Starbucks has no place at Magic Kingdom period! I HATE THIS IDEA!

I was disgusted when I was first reading this. I still don't like it but have calmed down a little. However, if they do it and don't disturb the Main Street theme, I guess I can't complain.

Think about it this way. The title is basically this if I read correctly:

" A Starbucks is coming to MK" (i know that is not exact words)

or this sounds better:

"Main Street Bakery to now serve Starbucks coffee"

I probably would have thought it better if it was like that. It just like a MK restaurant serving Coke like someone said earlier. Of course, Coke on main street makes sense. lol. I just hope Disney does this right, where we dont see a big lit up sight that says Starbucks Coffee, which I don't think will happen.

Yay, better coffee, and I am confident it will still retains its current look at the location.
