Latest Disney Controversy

November 12th, 2012

Hello Disney lovers. Today I wanted to talk about the latest controversy to hit Walt Disney World. Lately, I had heard that the coffee giant Starbucks will be replacing the Main Street Bakery on Main Street inside Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Now unless you have been living under a rock, you have heard from some type of source that Starbucks was coming to Walt Disney World. The two locations that fans knew that these coffee shops would be located were Epcot and Magic Kingdom. People knew that Starbucks would be placed at The Fountain View in Epcot. People didn’t seem to mind this and I don’t blame them. I don’t feel that there is any significance to The Fountain View. However, what people seem to be up in arms about is where Disney is placing the Starbucks at Magic Kingdom. The plan is to put it where the Main Street Bakery is now. I’ve heard conflicting reports on this subject. On the one hand, I’ve heard that indeed Disney would completely close down the bakery and open it as a Starbucks. However, I have also heard that the bakery would stay as is and then Starbucks would just be incorporated into the existing bakery. Of the two options, I hope the second choice is decided. I honestly feel like by putting in a full fledged Starbucks, Disney would basically be telling its guests that they care more about making money than preserving the historical significance of the Magic Kingdom. When it comes to Disney World, people care about memories. They also care about remembering those important places and passing those memories down to their children and grandchildren. What they don’t care about are large corporations invading the most magical place on Earth. They care about counting the memories. Not the dollar signs. That’s my opinion, but what’s yours? Do you feel it’s a good idea that Starbucks is being put into the Main Street Bakery at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom? Why or why not? Please comment below or E-mail us at with your thoughts. I look forward to reading your comments. For now though, as always, have a magical day!
