true - it is pretty hard to find a place to get nescafe outside of WDW.

I get that Disney IS corporate branding. But I don't want to walk down Main St. and see a store in the MK that I will see anywhere else. I also get that they are going to make it "fit" the theme and not stand out. But again, I'd rather see the name remain the same and just put the changes inside!!

That's my personal beef with all of this. If they want to put a Starbuck's CART somewhere, fine.....Have at it. Just like the McDonald's one they have or had in World Showcase.
Amen!!!

Really!!?? It bothers you so much that you have to come in and be a jerk?

If you read what I'm asking it's not about the MSB change, rather, about why people (in other threads) are up in arms about Starbucks (the name) being in WDW.

Now go back to searching threads that you can go crap on...

Ok, so I understand many are upset about the changes to MSB. However, as others have said, the theming was rather weak there anyway so I don't really care about that. I like some of the items they sell here but, honestly, if I have to go somewhere else in the park to get what I want, it's really not a big deal to me.

I don't love the idea, but won't complain about being able to get a large Refresh Tazo tea

Can't stand Starbucks coffee though *bleh* I'll take Disney coffee any day....

It is all about the money! If Disney thinks they can make more money off of serving Starbucks, they will do it!! Coffee is very profitable, especially "brand name" coffee.

I'm sure they've done extensive marke research. I doubt they care what any obsessive main street bakery cult follower thinks. Mickey needs his $$!

That is exactly. Why are they closing the bakery it is the one place that everyone I know heads for when they enter MK.

Besides I can not stand Starbuck' coffee it taste like MUD TAR.
