Fanatic Disney customers now call Joffrey’s specialty coffee “Disney Coffee.” The official Disney specialty coffee supplier packs K-cups and Cuisinart pods in many Disney hotel rooms, also offers coffee for purchase at various Disney Park stores, and has retail coffee stands around the area. complex. The specific dark roast (Joffrey’s Artisan Blend or French Roast) used in parks gives many guests a look back at their magical vacation, and they often seek it out as a way to revisit those memories.

But Joffrey’s isn’t the only coffee vendor selling Magic Beans to the Orlando Resort. You can find the popular Starbucks lattes, coffees, and Frappuccinos at all four of Disney World’s theme parks, as well as at Disney Springs. Blonde roasts, dark roasts and special mixes are available as they are where you live. If you are a collector of the iconic Starbucks “You Are Here” or “Been There” mugs then you can find the exclusive Walt Disney World Parks mugs – collect all four, then visit Disneyland Resort for this set!

Coffee prices at Walt Disney World are very varied. A simple cup of brewed coffee can be as cheap as $ 2.99, while a Starbucks Venti latte or Trenta iced coffee, for example, can set you back up to $ 8.00 with upgrades. and others.

And, there are several upgrade options! Seasonal flavors fill tables several times a year and all true Disney coffee lovers will be rushing to try them. Typical iced coffee and dark roasts are at the top of typical orders, but baristas can make just about any coffee drink you’re looking for. Isn’t coffee better with a little pixie powder?

Where to find coffee served at Disney World

To the delight of caffeinated creatures everywhere, coffee at Disney is widely available. Upon waking up to your Disney World Resort hotel, you will not only have a coffeemaker in your room, but large cups of coffee available at the resort’s food court or at various coffee stalls in the resort’s lobbies. For example, we love the Kona Cafe stand in the lobby of Disney’s Polynesian Resort!

Of course, at every Walt Disney World Dining establishment, you will find cups of great coffee on the menu. We love a special Disney World coffee before tackling a morning attraction!

While visiting Disney theme parks, you will find either a Starbucks location or Joffrey coffee kiosks at various locations. Each park contains a unique Starbucks storefront, mixed with the theme of the surrounding stores, so if you don’t see it right away, have a friendly cast member show you the way. Or…. just follow your nose. Walking past those roasts certainly points you the way to go! Starbucks stores are usually located near the park entrance or “downtown” while Joffrey’s carts and delicious coffee stands are located in various countries. Our favorite is the Magic Kingdom Tomorrowland Joffrey coffee stand near Space Mountain. This is the only place where you can buy “Mission to S’mores Latte!” in the form of hot coffee or a cold drink.

When you visit Disney Springs, there is a large flagship Starbucks near the Westside Marketplace. It’s a great place to grab your Frappuccino and roam the world of Disney, the resort’s largest Disney store. Maybe pick up some collectible coffee mugs to display around the house and remind yourself of your favorite Disney World coffee!

If a Disney fan purchases a refillable mug with the Disney Dining Plan (currently unavailable for the ongoing pandemic) or a la carte at your hotel, they can refill it with not only water, tea and hot chocolate at beverage stations, but also coffee! Insulated glasses will not only be a memory of your recent vacation, but also a constant companion filled to the brim! Constantly refill the cup at Disney resorts.

Coffee makers in Disney hotels

Guests ask the planDisney team (formerly the Disney Parks Moms Panel) every day about coffeemakers at resort hotels. There are only two types of coffeemakers available in each room… and a bunch of Resorts completely without them! Cuisinart pod brewers are the most common regular in-room coffee brewers, but the coveted Keurig K-cup brewers are catching up at luxury resorts as renovations and new construction continue.

An answer provided by the panel covers in an exhaustive way each of the Resorts and the coffeemakers present in each of them. If you’re a Disney guest and want to bring your own roast from home, you’ll need to prepare. Check the answer below for more information on each Disney Resort.

Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel [now planDisney!], Linda! I sip my own cup of coffee while I search for the answer to your question. When I make a reservation at a resort I always want to know what types of coffeemakers are available in my room as well!

K-cup-style Keurig brewers, it turns out, are a guest favorite, so more Walt Disney World Resort hotels are adding them. After some field research and phone calls, I was able to get a shortlist of guaranteed Keurig-style brewing stations. Disney’s Port Orleans – French Quarter and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort will be offering these coffeemakers in refurbished guest rooms. All Standard Rooms at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, All Standard Rooms at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and Club Levels at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney’s Boardwalk Inn feature Keurig-style machines. Typically, Villas will offer a full coffeemaker, and Studios will offer the Cuisinart Two-Cup Flat Pod Brewer. The All-Star Value Resorts will not offer coffee machines, with the exception of the family suites at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort. Pop Century and The Art of Animation feature the Cuisinart Pod style. Right now, all other moderate, luxury, and DVC resorts currently offer the 2-cup flat pod Cuisinart-style machine.

Hope you are feeling caffeinated and refreshed after getting a feel for the coffeemakers in every room at Walt Disney World Resort. If you stay in a room with a brewer, you’ll be treated to my favorite Joffrey Twinings coffees and teas. It’s not a vacation for me unless I sip that quality beer with a Disney mug! If I can help you with any other vacation planning let me know. For now, CHEARS in the morning coffee! ~ Lindsey P.
