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.


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 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?

  2. We do have lots of choices in Main Street.. sincerely hope I can go back there soon 🙂

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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. A good cup of coffee does wonders to perk up the day 🙂

    Ai @ Sakura Haruka

  9. 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!

  10. well there is the Dream right there… someone send me to Disney to determine where the best cup of coffee can be found! Could life get any better!? 🙂

  11. 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!

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

  13. 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

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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!

  21. Dang it! Now I want to go back… lol!!
    They have the best coffee 🙂 I should have gotten a signed mug while I was there.
    Bad move on my part!

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

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

  24. 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!

  25. I adore Italian coffe,so Trattoria al Forno would be perfect for me! Love Disney 🙂 Thanks for sharing such interesting post!

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

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

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

  99. 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!

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

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

  102. 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!

  103. 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.

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

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

  111. 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!
