I agree. This is very sad news. It's one of my favorite paces in MK. I understand that it won't exist as of December 1. Is that correct?

I read it will be closing in January to be made into a Starbucks.

Also, The Fountain View in EPCOT will be turned into a Starbucks as well.

I thought it was remaining MSB with the ADDITION of a Starbucks.....?? YES, that would be sad.

ETA: Just found the blog confirming the bad news for my very own eyes, so not good..

Maybe it is time to write and let Disney know how we all feel. I already did at their new customer service site.

"Both locations are expected to follow the DCA model with a mix of Starbucks and Disney treats. So don’t assume that all your favorite treats will be gone for good. It is very likely that you’ll still find many of them available."

fine with me if they close it...we have been severely disappointed over the last 2 years with the quality of the baked goods at Main Street Bakery. They went to mass-producing baked goods & then storing them in refridgerated coolers...then putting the trays directly into the display cases without heating them up. So the baked items were served cold and stale more often than not. The ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls? NOT. The frosting was hard & cracked off...the rolls were so stale they were like styrofoam. We quit going there a good 6 months ago after yet another disappointing visit there.

Hopefully they'll get fresh pastries with the Starbucks.

DH and I are not big fans of Starbucks at all. We did get the ooey-gooey cinammin rolls last Sunday and they were delicious. Even brought a couple home - 10 seconds in the microwave and a little bit of Disney was there.

There are certain things WDW should not change and the Main Street Bakery is one of them!

When I read the article it sounded to me that the bakery would basically add Starbucks service to the bakery. It uses the word" integrated". I am hoping that means that not much will change as far as pastries, and the coffee will be much better. I have to add that I have been so sad since french toast loaf was removed from the menu. It was a favorite and the traditional start to our first day in the MK.
I wonder if Disney considered offering coffee at the existing bakery and opening a Starbucks store off Main Street, that seems a reasonable compromise to me

I'll add my displeasure to this announcement. In recent years I have not visited it as often as I used to, but that was more because of weight control. I was so looking forward to a brownie on my next visit, but I guess I will have to wait and see...truth be told, I'd rather Dunkin Donuts
