There’s nothing better than pairing the Most Magical Place on Earth with your favorite hot beverage!
There was a time in the not-so-distant past that Disney coffee wasn’t a highlight of your visit. But these days Disney offers much better options for lovers of java beverages who are visiting Walt Disney World.
Let’s take a closer look at the options that you’ll find, should you need that morning or afternoon cup o’ joe. There’s plenty to choose from!
Coffee in Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts
There’s never been a better time to enjoy coffee at Walt Disney World. There are coffee and tea varieties to please every palate! Let’s take a look at some of the best.
Joffrey’s in Walt Disney World
Joffrey’s, a specialty coffee and tea company based in Tampa, is the official specialty coffee provider for Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Disney Vacation Club resorts.
For their Disney Parks & Resorts Specialty Coffee Collection offered by Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Co, the company sources only 100% Specialty Grade Arabica Coffee Beans. That means they only use the best of the best.
Walt Disney World Parks
Within the Walt Disney World parks, you’ll find several spots where Joffrey’s Coffee is offered. Click here to find a complete list of all the kiosks and storefronts that Joffrey’s operates, so you always know where to find the perfect cup!
The kiosks are well-themed to their locations and offer a full range of hot and cold coffee drinks as well as a full host of baked goods. (We love the giant donuts!)
And here’s a fun, grown-up option that you’ll find at the kiosks in many of the Parks (save for Magic Kingdom): you can get “Spirited Beverages,” as well, with choices like the Kahlua-Tini!
Walt Disney World Resort Hotels
Within the Walt Disney World Resort hotels, Joffrey’s Coffee rules the roost. We’ve told you previously about the Joffrey’s kiosks located in the Parks, but their products are available widely in restaurants and as an in-room amenity throughout many of the Resorts as well.
From Counter Service eateries to Signature Dining restaurants, Joffrey’s is served throughout Disney. But don’t think that you’re going to get the same cup of coffee where ever you go. Joffrey’s has introduced a line of Custom Blends that capture the spirit of the various signature dining spots. This means you’ll sip a different cup of coffee at Flying Fish than you’ll enjoy at Citricos.
Here’s a list of Disney World Restaurants — both in the Resorts and the Parks — where you can enjoy Joffrey’s Coffees.
- California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Citricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
- Narcoossee’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
- Victoria and Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
- The Wave at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
- Flying Fish at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
- Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
- Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- Jiko at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Boma at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Sanaa in Kidani Village at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Tusker House Restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
In many of Disney’s moderate and signature table service restaurants, you can also enjoy special preparations of coffee. We really enjoy the flavor and theatre of a French press pot, and you’ll find this method widely available throughout Disney World. Who could resist the chance, for instance, to enjoy a press pot of freshly ground Kona Coffee at Kona Cafe, while dining on specialties like Tonga Toast? Look for French Press Pots at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Jiko, Boma, and Sanaa as well. You can also enjoy this special treat at Trattoria al Forno.
But for the epitome of coffee luxury, don’t miss the chance to book your advance dining reservation at Victoria and Albert’s within Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Their special vacuum pot is a fascinating spectacle to behold, and produces a rich, balanced cup.
If you aren’t in the mood to indulge in a sit-down meal, you can still enjoy good coffee within the resorts. Several hotels offer coffee bars. These include Contemporary Grounds at the Contemporary Resort and Kona Coffee Bar (which offers coffee by morning, and sushi by night!).
Taking Joffrey’s Coffee Home With You. But if you truly fall in love with your favorite restaurant’s coffee, here’s the good news — you can also take a bag of your favorite home with you! Purchase Disney Parks & Resorts Specialty Coffee Collection offered by Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Co throughout the Resorts and Parks!

Starbucks in Walt Disney World
Starbucks, recognized globally for their chain of coffee shops and their retail products, also has a presence in Walt Disney World. You will find Starbucks outlets in each of the four Walt Disney World theme parks and in Disney Springs.
In Magic Kingdom, stop by Main Street Bakery on Main Street, U.S.A. for a fix. EPCOT’s Traveler’s Cafe offers guests Starbucks coffee as they “travel” from Future World to the World Showcase. And in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you’ll find The Trolley Car Cafe right on Hollywood Boulevard. Creature Comforts in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is located on Discovery Island on the pathway to Africa. Finally, you can stop by one of two Starbucks in Disney Springs.
Starbucks Coffee is also served at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts. It is available in the Resorts’ Coffee Bars and for in-room brewing.
Other Coffee Options in Walt Disney World
Throughout Walt Disney World, you’ll also find some interesting coffee options in retail shops — especially in EPCOT. We’ve spied canisters of Tim Horton’s Cappuccino in the Canada Pavilion as well as Lavazza Espresso in the Italy Pavilion.
Guests visiting Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort can enjoy specialty Spanish coffee beverages at the lovely Barcelona Lounge.
Another wonderful spot in the Resorts to enjoy a specialty coffee drink is Le Petit Cafe in Disney’s Riviera Resort.
If you find yourself at Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop in the Disney Springs Marketplace, you’ll discover a wide range of rich coffee options alongside delicious ice cream treats.
Options include, hot, iced, and frozen coffee specialties.
And if you’re looking for something a little more unusual to try while you’re on vacation — while still getting your caffeine — Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew serves over-the-top options like the Reese’s Nitro.
And Gideon’s Bakehouse presents The Original Peanut Butter Cold Brew!
NO matter where you find yourself in the World, you’re never too far from your morning cup, afternoon pick-me-up, or evening dessert coffee!
