I'm oretty sure that the popular pastries will be there still. Nescafe coffee is blah! I would rather have coffee I like than that crude!

Umm, no.

For many, many years, all I have drank while at Disney is Mocha. 1/2 coffee and 1/2 hot chocolate with lots of cream. It will be nice to finally have a good cup of coffee.

Its still Main Street Bakery. Thats still the name of it and if its like the one in California Adventure it will still look like it belongs on Main Street.

Its a Disney shop...selling starbucks coffee. How is that any different than before when it was a Disney shop...selling Nestle Coffee?
If this is the case then I really don't mind it. I thought that the location would say "Starbucks" outside instead of the Mainstreet Bakery. That is what a lot of people have been saying and in that case I could understand people feeling like the magic of the parks is being ruined, but if all it is is that they are selling Starbucks coffee inside the Mainstreet Bakery then I really don't see the big deal. Thank you for your input.

There IS a Starbucks sign outside. It hangs beneath the "awning" area at the entranceway. It is brown, not green. But the name of the shop will continue to be Main Street Bakery.

I for one am so HAPPY they have brought in Starbucks to the parks. Now when my friends and I go on our frequent trips to Disneyland/CA Adventure, we always end up in CA Adventure first to get our morning caramel macchiatos. No more of the crap coffee that use to be served!

See, Starbucks is represented - but so is Main Street Bakery.

Not sure who the "lot of people" were, but it has been pretty widely reported by WDW itself for months that the MSB would retain its turn-of-the-century motif and name with modest Starbucks branding. Here is what Disney announced way back in November:
Quote:
UPDATE 11/12: Heres some additional information about our Walt Disney World Resort Starbucks locations. The Main Street Bakery will keep its name and theming when it reopens in early summer. It'll also continue to serve Disney favorites like cookies, brownies and seasonal cupcakes, in addition to Starbucks signature beverages and other items.
But some people just refuse to believe and instead complain about things that were never planned in the first place. There are none so blind as those who choose not to see.

Anyone who has been to the location in DCA or has seen pictures of it, however, says differently. yes there's a starbucks sign. And in the case of DCA they did change the building, but as I mentioned the other day, that had to happen because the old design was terrible for the crowds they could have attracted. But it's truly a Disney-looking place, with simple Starbucks signs (as opposed to COCA COLA all over like at the Coke places in DL and MK) and quite a lot of the Disney food and a lot of the good Starbucks food, and it's all good.

The place in DCA can hold a lot of people AND serve a lot of people, fairly quickly. And it's better than the Nescafe syrupcoffee product that was sold as "coffee" before.
