Best Spots in Disney to Grab Coffee

Best Spots in Disney to Grab Coffee

To the joy of so many parents, the coffee situation at Walt Disney World has improved by leaps and bounds. For a place that does so many things right, it’s hard to believe that once upon a time it was hard to find a good cup of coffee, and even harder to find a calm place to sit and enjoy that coffee. Now though, you actually have a few places to grab a cup of coffee at Disney, and it is even possible to choose from among the best options.

These are among the best spots in Disney World for grabbing a coffee to help you get through a busy day.

Starbucks

There are now several Starbucks restaurants in the parks, as the chain was recently added to the lineup of recognizable brands to join Disney. The new location at Main Street Bakery is by far the most popular and most used, with lines forming at the start of the day and never really getting short until closing time. The Epcot location, right under Spaceship Earth is another fan favorite and has a futuristic feel to match the theme of the park and nearby rides. You can expect to find all of your Starbucks favorites here, from drinks to snacks to sandwiches.

Joffrey’s Kiosks

Joffrey’s is the main coffee option at Disney, and there are fast serving kiosks all over the parks where you can grab a great cup of coffee. This option doesn’t necessarily give you a place to sit and enjoy your coffee, but most of them are located near plazas and open areas that are filled with benches and seating. Locations that are attached to resorts or specific sections of the parks create special blends that feature the flavors that go with each destination. The blends found at Tusker House and FLying Fish Cafe are among the favorites around.

Kona Cafe

The Kona Cafe at the Polynesian Resort is one of the best places to grab a pot of coffee with your breakfast. Not only can you grab a delicious house blend, but you can sit and relax with your coffee every morning, just like you do at home. Coffee comes in a pressed pot too, so it really gives the freshly ground beans time to give off their best flavor.

Trattoria al Forno

You should expect to find great coffee at an Italian themed establishment, and you will get just that on the Boardwalk at Trattoria al Forno. This spot has pressed pots filled with their signature style brew that guests have been raving about since the restaurant opened. Pots are shared, and while it is a full service restaurant, you are more than welcome to head in solely for the pleasure of enjoying a great cup of coffee.

Boma

Boma is one of the popular Animal Kingdom Lodge restaurants, so it’s not often a place folks go to grab great coffee, but they do serve the special house blend of Kenyan coffee. Early morning and late evenings, after the rush of meal times are best for grabbing a pot of pressed coffee, especially when you do not have a meal reservation.

Where do you grab coffee when you are at Disney World?

    Coffee is a must in the mornings. My sister just got back from Disney. Emerson got a Make a Wish trip, so they went there. They had a great time.

  2. Miles Basilio

    It’s great to hear about the experience of your sister. I think Disney sure has great coffee shops already.

  3. Ginger Mommy (@Gingermommy)

    This is great! When we went I was totally craving coffee and had no idea where I could grab one. Mama needs coffee!

  4. mburbage

    Coffee! You speak my language! ha this is great, if we ever go there I know right where to go for a good cup! Thanks for sharing

  5. OurFamilyWorld

    I see a lot of posts about where to dine in Disney, but not where to have coffee. I love coffee and I love that you featured the best spots here.

  6. Pam Wattenbarger

    I agree! Sometimes you don’t want a whole Disney meal, you just want a little pick me up.

  7. toughcookiemommy

    I need to know and learn everything that I can about where to get the best deals at Disney. This is some very useful information for planning a vacation.

  8. MyTeenGuide

    This is a great resource for those who are planning to visit Disney.

  9. Jeanette

    My hubby I think would NEED to know where the coffee shops are LOL

  10. OurFamilyWorld

    I can’t function well without a cup. It’s great to know that there are a lot of places in Disney where I can easily get coffee.

  11. Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey

    You said it! The same goes for me!

  12. Theresa

    I’ll have to remember these for the next time we go. I don’t drink it, but Jason does and will appreciate knowing where to stop for a good cup of joe!

  13. MyTeenGuide

    I also love coffee. I will keep this list in mind. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Megan

    I love a good coffee so thanks for this post. I’ve never been to Disney and haven’t yet planned to but I can’t wait to go. It’ll be so much fun even though I am an adult now, and grabbing a coffee will be sorted thanks to you!

  15. Athena

    I have only been to Disney once but definitely plan on going back and this is good to know. Thanks

  16. Jessica Beal Harlow

    I’m so glad to hear that Disney has finally heard the cry of parents desperate for a decent cup of java! I’ll be thrilled when they finally add Dunkin’ Donuts to their list of vendors! lol

  17. littlemisscant

    We hit every single on of those spots on our trip!
    Starbucks was the only reason we made it to midnight. I have to admit..I was hoping for a “Tim Horton’s ” at the Canadian Pavilion in Epcot. Gotta have my double double!

  18. TravellingBookJunkie (@t_bookjunkie)

    Finding the right coffee shop wherever we travel is important. Whether for a day out or a longer trip its important to know where I will be able to stop off for a good cup of caffeine. I have to admit that I prefer one-off offee shops rather than chains but I also appreicate that in a place like Disney it is likely to be overrun with them!

  19. Rosey Marie

    I’m going to look for the Kona cafe the next time we go. I think that sounds better than tusing he little pot in the hotel room, which is usually how I do it.

  20. Jeanette

    I have not been to Disney World since I was a kids, so I have never actually paid attention to coffee. NOW on the other hand I totally would! I had no idea that there were so many coffee shops there.

  21. Ashley

    So many options! I haven’t been there since I was really little, but we hope to go in the next few years. Can’t wait to check out all of the coffee shops

  22. Rebecca

    I don’t usually get coffee at Disney but I do get tea. I love getting a pot of English tea at the Grand Floridian.

  23. Marvelous Mommy

    My sister just went to Disney World with her family. I have NEVER been before! I can’t wait to go and take my girls!

  24. Gloria @ Homemade & Yummy

    It has been a long time since I was at Disney. Good to know for our next visit.

  25. Kristen from The Road to Domestication

    This is a very important post LOL I normally grab some Joffrey’s coffee when I’m there!

  26. monicastable

    Finding a coffee and a quiet spot to collect our thought is so important. In the chaos of Disney this is mandatory!!! I’ve not been to Disney in years but we are getting ready to take the Grandchildren so I am very grateful for this post!

  27. Pam

    Disney is so much fun and has so many great places to eat! It’s worth a visit for the food alone!

  28. Cathy Herard

    No doubt about it, my favorite place to buy coffee is Starbucks and now that they are in ALL of the theme parks & at Disney Springs I’m beyond thrilled!

  29. Liz Mays

    That’s definitely good to hear. It’s always a great coffee shop to fall back on.

  30. Catherine S

    I am so happy that they have added Starbucks. I love the coffee at Kona Cafe.

  31. Bernadette Callahan (Aimless Moments)

    Main Street and Starbucks are my first choices. We were just at Magic Kingdom in December, cant wait to go back.

  32. tara pittman

    The coffee would go great with the french pastries they have there. I never had a cup of coffee at Disney.

  33. Nicole Lutzy

    I agree especially the bakeries in Epcot like in France! Coffee and danishes go together!

  34. Toni

    What a great guide and fun post to research! I love Disney.

  35. Pam Wattenbarger

    I have heard great things about Kona at Disney! I would definitely head there for some coffee if I were at Disney. Well, that or Starbucks.

  36. lisa

    Great list! I loved the coffee at Kona Cafe. That is one of my favorite breakfast places as well.

  37. Deb Clem-Buckert (@debclembuckert)

    We were just there and I didn’t grab a single cup off the resort. Great list though!

  38. Brandy

    You are a true Disney pro when you know the best spots to grab coffee there! Great information!

  39. Liz Mays

    I’d love to check out all of these places. I love that they have a variety of special blends and some quick places to stop for a cup.

  40. Jeanine

    I’ve never been to Disney and would you believe I’ve never tried coffee before? I know, I know! I’m awful but maybe someday I can do both of these!

  41. Seattle Travel Blogger

    Yeah, I remember being in WDW quite some time ago and believe you are correct about the lacking of coffee situation there.
    It is good to know Starbucks et al have come onto the scene!
    I will have to chat this up a bit with my brother-in-law; he is going there in April.

  42. travel blogger

    What a great list! Coffee is a must for me and my husband. I will have to keep this in mind when we go to Disney.

  43. Stacie

    It’s great that they’ve added more Starbucks locations. Thanks for providing this list to grab a coffee. I can’t be without my coffee.

  44. Fashionable Librarian

    I am waiting for the best spot to grab tea…LOL…not a coffee drinker

  45. Marcie W.

    I love coffee so much that I would be happy to visit each and every one of these spots! The stronger the better for me.

  46. Annemarie LeBlanc

    Totally agree with you Marcie. I like my coffee strong, because that’s just what we are looking for when we go for coffee. Its the caffeine kick to keep us up on our toes.

  47. melisasource

    I have yet to get to Disney but I will definitely keep this post in mind for my first visit!

  48. Jody Smith

    This post was made for me! As a Florida resident Disney is in my blood and I am convinced I have coffee in my bloodstream! I have heard Kona is great for a lot of things!

  49. Alexandrea

    So many coffee shops! I’ve never been to disney but it must be a massive place

  50. Nicole Lutzy

    We love Disney World but I have never purchased coffee from any of their locations. I only like iced coffee, I will have to keep an eye open next time we are there to see if they offer it.

  51. coolchillmom

    I always make a bee line for the Starbucks at Epcot. Great to know I can also do it at the Magic Kingdom!

  52. Annemarie LeBlanc

    My first choice would be Trattoria al Forno. I love their coffee! Starbucks would be a second choice because of the many options they offer.

  53. keikilanij

    This is sooooo good to know! I am all about the coffee! Can’t wait to go to Disney to drink a cup!

  58. Amber NElson

    Definitely good to know! Coffee is how I get through my day and I would need lots of it at Disney!

  59. patricemfoster

    It’s hard for me to imagine that coffee was hard to come by at Disney. Glad they get it together.

  60. Amanda Love

    We usually just grab it at Starbucks. Its all I drink.

  61. Debra

    I love all of the Disney tips! I am not a coffee drinker, but I will keep these places in mind for other snacks and food!

  76. chbernard

  77. Kelli @ 3 Boys and a Dog

    You just made Disney a more appealing vacation destination by saying they have coffee! And more than one place at that! I’m sure to keep up with all the festivities, you would need a cup or two if you’re like me! ~ MS

  78. Ana Fernandez

  85. Natalia Pessoa

    Haha I’m not a coffee drinker but it’s good to know anyway! Hope to go to Disney soon <3

  86. tp keane

    Disney land and coffee go hand in hand in my opinion. Need the extra stamina to keep up with the kids. Thanks for sharing.

  87. Amber

    I would love to go to Disney World. Disneyland has some great options as well especially Mainstreet bakery.

  88. Chubskulit Rose

    We have been to Disney World but not Disneyland. Coffee is something I miss.

  89. jessicasimms

    I can’t wait to go! I will be sure to grab coffee from all of these places.

  90. katrina g

    I would love to go to Disney World. My friend is there right now and I’m so jealous.

  91. Heather

    That is something that my mom and I always used to talk about – in fact when we would take our trips down we would often bring our coffee pot (we drove). The last time I was there was in 2009, and I still struggled with the coffee situation! I am glad it has improved!

  92. ohnikkashae

    I’ve never been to Disney but I will remember this for when I finally go!!!

  93. Kristin

    Noting that Epcot location! Headed there with the family for Valentine’s Day weekend!

  94. Mar

    I feel like coffee is even more needed at disney than an average day. If the kids can get a sugar buzz, we should be able to get caffeine!

  95. Lisa Rios

    I am one of those crazy coffee lover & I always need it when I need some thing to relax on a hectic day. Starbucks is where I had a cup of coffee last time, may be should try the other shops as well.

  96. Swa-Rai (@swaraimedia)

    Thanks for this! I know a few times we had a hard time finding good spots. My mother will love you for this.

  97. Susannah

    I’m just a little addicted to coffee so this is perfect for when we finally do a disney trip!

  98. Shannon Gurnee

    This is definitely a great list of places to grab coffee at Disneyland. Thanks for sharing girlie!!!

  99. Camesha | Mama Motivator

    I’d never even considered the coffee situation. Makes sense though. You need all you can to keep up with the kids at Disney!

  100. Coralie

    I don’t drink coffee but I bet I can get a great hot chocolate there! Love Disney! Can’t wait to go back!

  101. Sarah

    Now this is my kind of list of places to see!

  102. Janeane Davis

    You really can learn something new every day. I never thouht about a need to get a cup of coffee at Disney, but it does make sense that people would want a good cup of coffee while at Disney!
