On Tuesday, June 18, 2013, the Main Street Bakery at Disney’s Magic Kingdom will officially reopen with a new look and new coffee and other offerings by Starbucks. A preview was held today and we got a look inside.
Just over a year ago, Disney announced that all six of their U.S. theme parks would be getting Starbucks locations. The first to open was a part of the reimagined entry to Disney California Adventure. Then last November we found out the first two at Walt Disney World would be at the Main Street Bakery at Magic Kingdom, and in the location of the Fountain View at Epcot.
Many fans were upset about the possibility of losing the quaint Main Street Bakery to a modern-day Starbucks. Disney quickly let them know the name would still be the Main Street Bakery and that the look of the store would remain themed in the appropriate era with the Main Street surroundings.
Here’s our video showing a quick look around the new bakery:
As you can see they offer a full menu of Starbucks beverages, breakfast sandwiches and a wide selection of baked goods, such as muffins, scones and other treats. The bakery also sells some of the same sweet treats they always have such as cookies, cupcakes and brownies. (No cinnamon rolls were offered at today’s preview. It’s unknown if they will be sold here in the future.) The cups are co-branded with Disney on one side and Starbucks on the other. The bakery is staffed by Disney cast members.
The Main Street Bakery does accept Starbucks gift cards and mobile apps. Guests can earn Starbucks Rewards but they can’t be redeemed at the Disney location. The Starbucks at Epcot is set to open later this summer.
UPDATE: One change we forgot to mention is that all of the seating has been removed to make the bakery larger.
