I've heard that they are keeping it as the Main Street Bakery, just selling Starbucks items.

Keep in mind that Buena Vista Street (location of DL "Starbucks") and Main Street MK are not themed to the same time period.
They have already stated that it will keep the early 20th century theme. The location in DCA fits the theme there. The two locations are not going to look alike.
A little off topic, but a question for Disneyland regulars: has traffic picked up substantially at Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe since Starbucks added its presence?
Based on the number of people who love Starbucks coffee, I would expect Main Street Bakery to be jam-packed most of the time after the refurb. I wonder if they've considered having two coffee bar areas in there to handle the volume?
MSB is almost *always* jam packed every time we go already
I'm not a Disneyland regular but I don't think it's hard to give a straight answer on this question.
There are a LOT more people visiting the DCA park in general so all the establishments should show an increase in traffic.
The change is obvious and not everyone feels it is well justified. Addition of the coffee is a great idea but changing current place so much for that is overkill. I do not care if name stays, decor and menu changes, it is a bit too much, IMO. And I actually love SB but not like that.
There is always a line out the door of MSB right now! That's part of the reason for the refurb, because the bakery is currently so poorly designed that the line takes forever. They're redoing the inside not because Starbucks wants it redone, but because they need a better system as it is.
In fact, I would expect that the MSB line will become shorter after Starbucks shows up there.
Really, OP? ANOTHER thread on the sad Starbucks/MSB saga? 'Cause there weren't enough already? Maybe the Search function on your screen is broken? GAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Yea these posts are getting crazy. I was up in arms too about the change, because the way it was stated! MSB replaced by Starbucks, but from what I have read and heard its basically MSB servicing Starbucks, thats much better!! Thats they way it needs to be. Lets just calm down, me included, and wait ans see the ACTUAL results instead of spreading rumors and causing forum trouble.
Or one of the other 15 that were created about it.
According to my friends from out there, the place is selling like mad.
I haven't been to the bakery in awhile because it usually has lines out the door anyway.
Multiple threads on the same subject is no skin off my nose - I don't have to read it if I don't want to. The only issue is wasted bandwith.....
AGREED if you don't like it don't open the tread and read it.
Moving to restaurant boards where food/drink discussions reside
Hard to say about traffic since it just opened, there wasn't a bakery there before. When I was there at the end of September, the lines were not real long but they were slow.
The one at DCA has 2 sides to order to better handle the crowds. That is probably why MSB is going to be closed for renovations, they have to change the layout. Starbucks is made to order, customized if you want. DCA works like a regular Starbucks, you go up to the cash register, order, pay, they make your drink and you pick it up at the end of the counter. Anything from the bakery case is handed to you at the register. The bakery case is in the middle between the 2 lines.
hmm...i don't know...maybe its because i/we spend a lot of money to go to WDW and experience things which are uniquely Disney- not spend a whole lot of money for something most can get in their car and drive five minutes to experience/purchase...
I don't get this, the coffee served there isn't Disney. it's Nescafe. I see guests saying Disney should produce their own coffee. I can't say it would be good coffee if they did that.
There are a lot of food vendors and restaurants at WDW that are operated by third parties on a contract with Disney. This is no different.
You read the subject line, you clicked on the thread and read it. You complained when all the discussion on this was in the theme parks board and made a new thread demanding that all MSB talk be moved here to restaurants board. Even after that was done, you still complain about the threads on this subject in this board? You will have to accept that this will be the topic du jour until the next big announcement.
Deal with it.
This thread was not on the restaurant board when the poster replied to it.
