Main Street Bakey Sponsored By Starbucks?
The Main Street Bakery, the source of that wonderful cookie smell (aided by some imagineering that pumps the smell of fresh baked cookies into the air) is open again but now features and is sponsored by Starbucks.
The reaction to this announcement was mixed while Disney purists hated to see anything this iconic taken over by blatant profiteering. Coffee enthusiasts, however, were perking with joy over the opportunity to get a real coffee on property. Though not a coffee addict like many I have been told the coffee at Disney tasted like it came out of the moat around the Castle and not a pot. My limited experience confirms this suspicion.
Hate or love it Starbucks is in the Magic Kingdom now. But the invasion continues there are already plans to put Starbucks in Epcot and rumors of a change at Starring Rolls in Hollywood Studios.
