PassPorter's Walt Disney World News Bulletin

Starbucks to be Added to Main Street Bakery and Fountain View Bakery Next Year

Published 11/12/2012 by PassPorter News
Filed in Walt Disney World
Starbucks coffee is coming to Walt Disney World! The Main Street Bakery will close for rehab in January 2013 and will reopen in early summer 2013 with Starbucks coffee drinks added to the menu. The Main Street Bakery will keep it's name and theming and will continue to serve most of its traditional baked goods and breakfast items. During construction the ice cream sandwiches will be available at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, and warm cinnamon rolls can be had at Gaston's Tavern in the new Fantasyland. The Fountain View Bakery at Epcot will close in March 2013 and will reopen featuring Starbucks in mid-summer 2013. Starbucks will be added to locations in Disney Hollywood Studios and Disney' Animal Kingdom at a later date.

This news bulletin updates page 232 of PassPorter's Walt Disney World 2012.

Reader Comments:

I was so glad to read your informative article about the Starbucks opening in WDW next year. The internet has been absolutely FLOODED with misinformation - most of it on Disney related sites! I found it hard to believe that WDW would just "close down the Main Street Bakery for good" or "add a regular Starbucks that can be found at the mall". They are very cautious about atmosphere, especially in Magic Kingdom. What you have reported seems much more in keeping with the Disney way of doing things.
