I am very saddened by this news, as well. Ever since I was a little girl, it was a tradition for my family to stop in the MSB for breakfast whenever we visited the Magic Kingdom. We still go there every trip!

I would be perfectly alright with adding Starbucks coffee to the already existing menu, but I don't see the point in eliminating the bakery altogether. Disney is disregarding the memories and traditions of a lot of families with this move. Nostalgia is what keeps me going back to MSB - and the cinnamon rolls.

Maybe Disney will listen to the fan outcry this time?

My understanding is that all of the traditional favorites from the bakery will still be there, with the addition of better coffee. Not that Starbucks is my favorite, but it's better than what they served before. And the theming will continue to match the Main Street atmosphere.

If this is commercialism run rampant, then its well within keeping with the entire Disney Park tradition (which is not a negative, in my book).

Unhappy

I'm soooo sad to hear this news!! Starbucks doesn't need to be on Main St.!! That's what I love about Disney, you don't feel like same old, it's special and you see things that you don't see at home or on the highway everyday. This is bad move and will take away from the atmosphere on Main Street.

Ok, take it a step further, is Tony's Town Square about to become Olive Garden? How about Le Cellier, maybe Outback?

Way I see it, people pay upward of $90 for a day in Disney only to be greeted by commercial USA... Yes, I know we had McDonalds french fries at WDW before, but it wasn't replacing what I think of as a Disney institution.

We quit going there a good 6 months ago after yet another disappointing visit there.

Hopefully they'll get fresh pastries with the Starbucks.
You hit the nail on the head.

ANYTHING they do will be an improvement.

I've never seen starbucks serve cinnamon rolls! & I doubt most of their stuff is fresh! We were just at the MSB on Friday & the line was HUGE! Why would anyone wait in a long line for bakery items to take home when there is a starbucks around every corner at home? This is a tragedy to the Magic Kingdom!!

So ridiculous. they are not "eliminating the bakery altogether." nothing like a good strawman.

Starbucks!!!!!! I love Starbucks....BUT... not as much as MSB!!!They should have chosen another area!!! Main St. Bakery was one of our favorites!!! Now, WHY would they close a place that not only had great breakfast choices (french toast loaf) and great sandwiches and replace it as a Starbucks???????????

2) they haven't had the french toast loaf for a long time

first of all, no need to get into a tizzy over this. second of all, if this thread is so ridiculous to you then why bother posting or even reading it?

And finally, thanks for the private message but there's no need to take it that far! You really think id take it as far as calling Starbucks to find out if you're an employee? now that's ridiculous.

This is another case of the Sky is Falling on these forums. People take just a small part of the story and get all upset.

Disney World and Disneyland has for years had corporate sponsors, it is how they remain open.

They will serve Starbucks coffee. I don't like coffee but I do like their hot apple cider and I sure many like the hot chocolate. I personally like their pastries, especially the scones. Seems I have seen many threads on this forum about how horrible the coffee is at the parks, I guess they listened.

The Disney blog, which by the way would be a much better place to get official info than here, has stated that many of the favorites including those artery clogging cinnamon rolls are not leaving the park. They will be offered in Gaston's Tavern.

So calm down and carry on.
