For the coffee connoisseur, there’s something special about walking down Main Street, U.S.A. clutching that perfect cup of joe. As Walt Disney World’s food and beverage offerings continue to expand, the options for a caffeine boost have evolved too.
If coffee is needed to keep your day magical, here are some of the best places to grab a cup of coffee at Walt Disney World that will make you say zip-a-dee-doo-dah!
Main Street Bakery
When Starbucks Coffee locations were added across WDW theme parks, the resort became even more magical for Starbucks junkies.
Discreetly hidden amongst the old-school charm of Main Street, U.S.A., the quaint Main Street Bakery is actually the Magic Kingdom’s exclusive Starbucks stop.
Visitors who have a go-to order at this franchise can grab their venti Americano with soy milk and a snack before setting off towards one of the most magical sights at Walt Disney World – Cinderella Castle! Check out our May issue to see which Starbucks drink our own Danny Shuster suggests for surviving from rope drop to fireworks at Magic Kingdom.
Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie
Early risers can make their way to Epcot’s France Pavilion for a delicious espresso and macaron. Open 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM with an array of meal options and tasty baked goods, this joint is a ‘must’ for those who suffer from a sweet tooth – they serve Café Liégeois made with coffee, chocolate, and cream mousse. It’s also the place to go for those seeking that extra buzz that is pure espresso.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery
Coffee lovers who turn into a wild animal without their favorite beverage will need to make a pit stop at this African-themed bakery. Visitors on the hunt for a hearty morning meal will find not only breakfast sandwiches and pastries but cappuccinos, espresso, and a special alcoholic iced coffee blend available in either French vanilla or mocha flavor.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano
This lovely Italian eatery serves homestyle cooking and the Alto Mayo Protected Forest Coffee Roast by Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company. Freshly brewed in a French press pot ($9.00), the combination of this roast and this adorable Hollywood-backlot atmosphere make for the perfect blend when you’re looking to experience sit-down table service.
Coffee at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels
Victoria & Albert’s
Perhaps the most upscale experience for coffee at Walt Disney World (at $235 per person!), Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa offers elegant fine-dining and Joffrey’s rich Sulawesi Island coffee blend made using a unique vacuum coffee maker. This one-of-a-kind coffee-drinking experience is great for celebrating a special occasion.
Boma – Flavors Of Africa
Hungry? Guests purchasing the buffet option (from $32.99 per adult) at Boma, an African marketplace tucked into Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, can experience a unique bold Kenyan roast. It’s perfect for the coffee connoisseur at heart and served in a press pot.
Disney’s Polynesian Resort is home to Kona Cafe which serves a specialized Hawaiian coffee blend in a french press pot for two ($9.00). This tropical brew is known for having a bit of a fruity taste and can be served to-go at the neighboring Kona Island Bar. Surf’s up, dude!
Whether you prefer your coffee as black as the soul of a Disney villain or with a heaping spoonful of sugar, WDW Resort has plenty of choices for satisfying that caffeine craving. Make sure to check out each park’s vast range of grab-and-go or sit-down dining options on your next magical vacation!
