Considering how busy the Starbucks is I don't think MSB is as missed as everyone thinks.

I think the change has less to do with MSB being gone and the fact that it is a Starbucks - I did hear some people complaining about the fancy coffees and that they just want a "normal" coffee - whatever - you can get a cup of instant coffee somewhere else in the parks.

As for MSB's cinnamon rolls - personally I think were way overrated - they looked way better then they actually were - and to be clear they did not bake them here - it all came from a central kitchen

Al that being said it is kind of annoying that they did this - but that is what people want - it's kind of like all these people that go to NYC and then eat at Ruby Tuesday - why would you wait in line for the same generic food you can get at home and it cost 2-3 times as much??? Not that the food is Disney is all that better....

Anyway I would have preferred that Disney just served decent coffee throughout the parks and kept MSB as is- they have already messed up so many of my childhood memories of Disney - but in the end the Starbucks does the job and I'm sure Disney is making a nice profit on this.

Now if they could just get Nathan's to come in and solve the Hot Dog problems at Casey.s...LOL...

We just came back from a week long trip and while I completely understand the argument that Starbucks is not special and you can find one on every corner at home, being able to get a decent cup of coffee with REAL cream made me very happy.

I hate the coffee that is served at the resorts and loathe the fact that you can't find real half and half/cream. The packets of non-refrigerated coffee mate taste like chemicals to me. Yes if you ask, the resort staff will provide milk but that is not nearly the same as cream and it is a pain to find someone to help you when it is busy in the morning.

So for us, since we are at the parks at rope drop, being able to get a good, strong cup of coffee with cream was a major bonus. I also appreciated being able to use our snack credits to buy any size and type of drink that we wanted.

Just my opinion and I guess that what it comes down to what people prefer - I don't eat cinnamon rolls so happier to have the coffee option.

I don't love Starbucks coffee, but I would pay for it over Disney coffee, which is really terrible. We have had snacks at MSB and were unimpressed. So I am thinking that Starbucks is an improvement over MSB.
