    We just got back today (Friday) and we spent most of our mornings there! This is just about the worst thing they could do to the main street bakery!:confused3 But, on the other hand, if they continue to sell the same Disney baked goods and only change the coffee to Starbucks then that wouldn't be so bad. What I don't like seeing is other Corporate names inside the parks, it ruins the "magic". What's next...McDonalds next to Casey's? I guess we'll all have to wait and see. pirate:

    I would be fine with switching to Starbucks products but keeping it the bakery. It doesn't sound like that's in the plans though.:sad1:

    What's next Mcdonalds and Burger King taking over quick service restaurants. Ughh...I like starbucks, but I don't like this change. We always go to Main Street bakery once during every trip. I want Disney when i'm in Disney!! Main Street bakery is classic..lol.

    As PP stated they used to have MDs in at least AK. There was a French fry stand and the restaurant in Dinoland was a MDs.

    I love the idea of a Starbucks but hope they will keep some of the Main street Bakery's baked goods there. The Starbucks baked goods suck!!!

    It's a shame I won't be able to visit the MSB nor the Starbucks will be open in February. I guess I'll have to make a trip during fall next year!

    I think it will still be Main Street Bakery. That's how it is out at DCA, it's not called "Starbucks", it's "Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe". They have both Starbucks & Disney snacks.

    Oh no! I don't drink coffee, but I adore the MSB cinnamon rolls. I have those on my must-do list and everyone else's that goes there. Even if they keep them in the end, it will be closed for my next 2 trips. :sad:

    This is terrible, I'm sure this decision was made by some penny counter. Good thing we are going in four weeks so that I can get my fill of cinnamon buns.

    Oh, no, this news has hit me hard. The cinnamon roll for breakfast has become a *must do* at least twice in our visits. I hate Starbucks burnt coffee. I'm glad we have one more trip before closure, then we'll probably never go back - unless hopefully they'll keep some of the bakery items (like maybe the cinnamon roll ;)). I hate to inform hubby of this - he really LOVES that roll ::yes::

    I do love *good* coffee - we're from so. LA and drink French Roast, but why Starbucks has to make it taste burned is beyond me. It's what a lot of people say also, not just us. :confused3

    You've got to be kidding me. I haven't even got to enjoy anything from the Bakery yet! I don't think I've ever been so ticked off before. What idiot made this decision? :mad:

    Agreed.

    I'm not going to worry TOO much until it's actually finished. Although, I'm disappointed that the Bakery will be closed in Feb...
    I really hope they don't mess with it too much. If you read about the Starbucks location in DCA, it's not in-you-face Starbucks. They still have a lot of the Disney desserts/pastries, with Starbucks pastries in addition. So, hopefully, Main St. Bakery will be similar...

    Here's a review from DCA with lots of pictures:
