There was a Krispy Kreme about 20 minutes from here that was there forever but recently went out of business. I wonder if it was the company? I heard others were having trouble too. I do remember Dunkin' being good when I was younger. Luckily we have two awesome local places that make great donuts! (unfortunately one of them is only open until 6:30am)

I personally think McDonald's has much better coffee than both Starbuck's and Dunkin Donuts! And it's way cheaper too. The coffee Disney sells is gross, but I don't like Starbuck's, so I'm still not going to buy coffee there. I always have to buy a cup at McDonald's before getting to the parks and it would have been nice not having to juggle the cup on the tram, monorail, through bag check, and the entrace. But I'm still willing to do that in order to have a good cup of coffee

McDonald's does have good coffee and the price can't be beat. Every so often, I go by there and get a coffee and an Egg McMuffin for breakfast.

Hi Diser's

Question, does anyone know if we can use a Starbucks giftcard at the Main Street Bakery?

Thanks all!

My firm opinion is now and always will be that the Main Street Bakery needs to stay !!! I can get a Starbucks any old time at any old place.

Not sure what your basis is for saying this. Starbucks cards are currently accepted at DCA.

Great. It is staying. And, I can't recall any person suggesting it shouldn't stay. Excellent use of strawman argument.

I wonder if they (DCA) will have the same thing "rules" (lack of a better word) at MSB? I hope so. I do have a $25.00 giftcard I have yet to use.


Thanks!
