Starbucks on Main Street at the Magic Kingdom officially opens later this week, but this weekend it has been in previews. We now know more information about what you can expect when you step foot inside this new version of the Main Street Bakery.
First off, on first initial glance, you can’t tell it’s a Starbucks location. However, almost all of the food options, as well as beverage choices, are all Starbucks. (Merchandise is distinctly Starbucks, as well.) We are hearing that in the afternoon some additional Disney offerings may be sold, like cupcakes and other sweets.
Most items will be available for a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan. In addition, those on the Dining Plan may use a quick service entitlement for either one entree and one beverage OR one beverage, one piece of fruit, and one pastry. This does appear to be a full blown Starbucks, for the most part, menu-wise, with the pastries and sandwiches that Starbucks specializes in.
Unfortunately, the bad news is that the famous cinnamon roll didn’t make the cut. However, they are still available at Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland.
There is also no indoor seating any longer. This was done to make the bakery bigger to accommodate larger crowds.
This is a Disney-run location. (As someone who has previously worked in a licensed Starbucks location, from the sound of it this is a licensed store.) The employees are all Disney Cast Members. The location will accept your Starbucks cards; however, it will not be able to access your rewards. You will still earn your stars.

One thing is for sure, for those who love a good cup of coffee in the morning, it seems like the Main Street Bakery will be the place to go to get it.
