    Same can be said about everything in Disney, even Disney merchandise can be found in Walmart, however what tickles most on us is that MSB is being changed, menu is being reduced, why? Why not to keep same menu but adding new things. I know replaced items will be found in other paces in MK but point was to have them there, in one place, esp. when it can be accompanied by great coffee like SB.

    difference is you can't go to Walmart, eat at Liberty Tree Tavern, then watch a Disney parade live then ride splash mountain, etc....

    and i believe Carnation sponsored CP for the longest time...if they are just offering Starbucks coffee and Starbucks is sponsoring the MSB then i agree- its no big deal...but if they are changing the entire MSB around to make it feel more like Starbucks versus Disney, then people's angst is well founded...

    true - it is pretty hard to find a place to get nescafe outside of WDW.

    Really!!?? It bothers you so much that you have to come in and be a jerk?

    If you read what I'm asking it's not about the MSB change, rather, about why people (in other threads) are up in arms about Starbucks (the name) being in WDW.

    Now go back to searching threads that you can go crap on...

    Ok, so I understand many are upset about the changes to MSB. However, as others have said, the theming was rather weak there anyway so I don't really care about that. I like some of the items they sell here but, honestly, if I have to go somewhere else in the park to get what I want, it's really not a big deal to me.

    I don't love the idea, but won't complain about being able to get a large Refresh Tazo tea ;)

    Can't stand Starbucks coffee though *bleh* I'll take Disney coffee any day....

    It is all about the money! If Disney thinks they can make more money off of serving Starbucks, they will do it!! Coffee is very profitable, especially "brand name" coffee.

    I'm sure they've done extensive marke research. I doubt they care what any obsessive main street bakery cult follower thinks. Mickey needs his $$!

    That is exactly. Why are they closing the bakery it is the one place that everyone I know heads for when they enter MK.
