    I'm not reading that at all... What I read is people are afraid of change. They're comfortable with the way things are and worry the change will remove the elements of the MSB they have grown comfortable with.

    I worry too, but I know Disney has changed many things for the best and we just have to put our faith out there that they'll do a great job.

    I'm looking forward to Mint Mocha Lattes during the holidays and a beautiful seating area :) Hoping this will be combined with my son's favorite over-sized cinnamon roll so he wants to sit with me for awhile.

    Yeah, I don't understand it either. But it's there. For some reason Starbucks is a lightning rod.

    I know you never said you disliked SB, my post was more general except the part I meant for you. :thumbsup2 Nothing personal. :grouphug:

    I understand some people love Starbucks, some hate it (whether for the coffee or other reasons) and most people couldn't care less! Certain people are taking it to the extreme (not you specifically) but cancelling holidays or saying the whole magic is ruined. Starbucks coming in is no different to Coca Cold, Edy's Ice Cream, Kodak or anything else that is clearly present on Main St.

    Never had their cinnamon roll but love their homemade icecream sandwiches (the one without the paper icecream bag, not the prepackaged kind). Yes, I too hope they keep the Victorian era of Main Street.

    I never supported extreme cases but you know, those are their opinions, no better nor worse then yours or mine. And I do not think all the opposition is because of SB anyway. You know my position and many feel just the same. I know for some MSB is just another store to buy pastries, for some it is much more. Different people, different opinions, and it is totally fine as long as we respect each other and act as adults.

    VERY excellent point. To say the magic is ruined is a little extreme. Esp since SB isnt even open and running yet. We dont know what it'll look like. So ppl need to chill, have faith in disney, and wait to see what happens. Good point about Edy's & Coca Cola btw! :thumbsup2

    Definitely would be nice wouldnt it? I love mint mocha lattes!!!! YUM!

    and they probably love Disney pizza too!

    Nescafe, what a dismal thought!

    I don't get it, it's a bakery, I'm more upset about the baked goods, the pastries, the croissants, the cinnamon rolls, etc., but everybody is stuck on the coffee debate!

    There's a reason Disney is "Coke" country, they gave Disney the best deal, and I'm sure that's how Starbucks got their way in! Disney should however retain the name of Main st. Bakery, it's an institution!

    Your Disney pastries are safe! There is more Disney at the DCA location then Starbucks food.

    For those of you who are upset because of the bake goods and not because of the coffee here is some good news for you!

    For me personally this was GREAT news considering I was pretty much only concerned about the baked goods. Those of you who are upset about the coffee that part unfortunately does remain the same as before.

    Hope remains :) Thank you for sharing.


    My concern really goes deeper than this refurb and addition of the Starbucks machines, which doesn't bother me at all. It has to do with the pastry kitchens themselves. Over the years Disney has homogenized the offerings at many of the pastry locations simply due to the fact that they run only 3(?) kitchens (I believe the actual Bakery locations are: Boardwalk, the Grand Floridian and Contemporary). MSB stood out from the crowd with it's offerings, yet, as I understood it does not run it's own kitchen. I have looked on and off for the past 24 hours to see if MSB does in fact have a kitchen back there but have come up with nothing. If it does, that's great news and we shouldn't fear about them tampering with the items. Disney could use the refurb as an excuse to change the recipes to the same ones offered in other locations making it easier on the bakeries.

    ... side note... I do suspect the sandwiches may disappear... Haven't heard any concern over those though, don't think they're too popular.
    I now return you to the arguments in progress...

    I havent gone thru the other posts...but just incase it hasnt been mentioned here: i thought i'd update everyone on the pastries at MSB. They made another announcement yesterday (official announcement from Disney). here it is:

    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. Itll also continue to serve Disney favorites like cookies, brownies and seasonal cupcakes, in addition to Starbucks signature beverages and other items. And for those of you who asked in comments, the cinnamon rolls are available at Gastons Tavern in New Fantasyland, and the ice cream sandwiches are available at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, U.S.A.

    http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/bl...gic-kingdom-park-epcot-set-to-open-next-year/


    So happy all the faves remain! Glad to hear the ice cream sandwiches will be available at the Plaza ice cream parlor.

    I don't get it. Many years ago it was sponsored by Sara Lee for heaven sakes. LOL It's not like this is some new concept. I'm so looking forward to this change and I hope its true for the one in Epcot too. That place was so run down it will be nice to have it there too.

    Supposibly the one in EPCOT is being totally redone. I'm not sure if that is true or not but supposbily it was in the inital announcement which to me wasn't very clear.

    the goodies yes, but also the feel, the atmosphere, the style, the feel, the smells....the uniqueness is what makes it special- besides the goodies of course!!
