Disney World Gets First Starbucks, Controversy Ensues

Disney removes Main Street Bakery in favor of Starbucks

   

Disney (DIS) might not be able to do wrong in the eyes of children, but parents could soon start looking the other way.

Disney is ditching the old Main Street Bakery, located on Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom, and is replacing it with a Starbucks (SBUX).

Disney fans don’t come across as accepting of this change either; articles and YouTube videos about the change both feature many negative replies.

“Not a stop that I will be making,” says one such comment.”Its sad that we had to lose that bakery. I will go to the Disney bakery near the castle. If anyone wants Starbucks they are on every corner.”

A YouTube video does show that Disney has made efforts to give the Starbucks that more nostalgic feel found on Main Street U.S.A., such as using the coffeehouse’s original logo.

This isn’t the only controversy Disney has stirred up lately, with a recent hike of admission price being met with similar discord.
