Disney clarifies changes to the Main Street Bakery with the introduction of Starbucks

Disney has posted an update on the Official Disney Parks Blog regarding the upcoming changes to the Main Street Bakery and the integration of Starbucks. 

The change that will see Starbucks introduced into the Main Street Bakery in mid 2013 has generated a lot of discussion on many Walt Disney World fan forums. No doubt many Disney fanboys will be taking credit for this "update" from Walt Disney World and once again will lull themselves into some false sense of accomplishment that they forced Disney's hand and made them do the right thing. Poppycock! Disney knew they were doing the whole time. They are absolutely in no position to answer to each and every fanboy call, nor should they ever be. They are a business ladies and gentlemen, and a very good one at that.

Whew. That is why I DO NOT host forums on MikeandTheMouse - everybody is an expert!

UPDATE 11/12: Here’s 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. It’ll 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 Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland, and the ice cream sandwiches are available at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, U.S.A.

  1. Well, that didn't take very long. Just finished reading several forums in which fanboys and girls gushed and paraded that they won the battle and persuaded Disney to change their mind and keep the Main Street Bakery open. Sorry to deflate your already HUGE egos, but MSB was NEVER in any danger of going anywhere. Disney did NOT change any plans, just the way they worded the press release. Disney does care about and will generally listen their fans, but make no mistake, this was purely poor wording and nothing else. Sorry fanboys/girls. Find another battle. I hear that nets at DAK are pretty popular.
