Concept Art Revealed for the New Main Street Bakery with Starbucks!

For those of you who have been wondering how different the Main Street Bakery will be when it reopens in May with Starbucks inside, we managed to uncover some concept art of the interior that you will find very interesting: The interior is currently being gutted and is getting an entirely new design. Hopefully this new layout will speed up the lines and clear out some of the congestion that was always a problem with the old bakery. Stay tuned to WDW News Today as more information becomes available on the Main Street Bakery featuring Starbucks products. In the meantime, what do you think of this new look for the Bakery?

WDWNT: The Magazine – Un Jour à Disneyland Paris

Un Jour à Disneyland Paris Michael Truskowski Bonjour et Bienvenue Most of my friends had always assumed that when I finally got married, the honeymoon would take place at Disney World.

When the big wedding day finally came on September 15th of 2012, we surprised everyone when we did not board a plane for Orlando – rather, we headed to Europe. As much as I love Disney World, I really wanted to do something new and extra [...]
