Update On The Main Street Bakery

November 26th, 2012

Hello Disney lovers. We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday this past weekend. Even though it’s a bit late, I wanted to give an update on the Main Street Bakery controversy. For those of you who don’t know, Disney had the idea of closing down the Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom on, obviously, Main Street U.S.A. To take it a step further, Disney was considering opening up a Starbucks in replacement of the beloved bakery. This angered a lot of people and Disney has eventually listened. The latest information that we have is that Disney has decided to have a limited selection of Starbucks items on the Main Street Bakery menu. Disney will no longer take over the Main Street Bakery with a full fledged Starbucks. As I stated in my previous post, in so many words, I think it was a very bad idea to have a Starbucks or any corporate store or restaurant for that matter in Walt Disney World. To me, Disney World is a place where families to go to get away from corporations. It also should be a place where people don’t want to be reminded of the every day world with things that they would see every day such as Starbucks. People may argue with me, but I think that’s why McDonald’s left Downtown Disney. People may say it was for other reasons which I am not disputing. However, I think one of the reasons the biggest fast food chain in the world left is because people don’t want run of the mill restaurants that people can see every day. This is why I give great kudos to Disney for responding to feedback from their guests. How do you feel about this latest change of heart that Disney has had regarding the Main Street Bakery? How did you feel when you found out that Disney was closing the Main Street Bakery to open up a Starbucks? Did you like it or were you upset? Please post your comments below or E-mail us at with your thoughts. For now though, as always, have a magical day!
