Do Disney Resort Rooms Have Coffee Makers?
If you’re the type of person who needs a cup of coffee in order to get your day started, then you’ll be glad to hear that there’s no need to worry about being without your morning brew.
Nearly every Walt Disney World Resort hotel has coffee makers available in their rooms, allowing you to enjoy a fresh cup before even leaving your room! The only exception are The Little Mermaid Standard Rooms at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, but all is not lost – these rooms are just a short walk away from the Landscape of Flavors food court where hot beverages such as coffee and tea can be found. So if you’re looking for that perfect cup of joe at Walt Disney World Resort, don’t fret – chances are it’s never too far away!
Types of Coffee Makers Available in Disney Resort Rooms
The in-room coffee makers at Disney Resort Hotels vary depending on the resort, but usually include either Keurig or Cuisinart models.
Deluxe resorts typically offer a Cuisinart single cup coffee maker, which will take K-cups; something to keep in mind if you want to bring your own or order some from Amazon Prime Now.
For instance while Gran Destino Tower rooms have Keurig machines the standard rooms at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort are supplied with Cuisinart single cup coffee makers.
Keurig machines are also available in select resorts, such as The Contemporary, The Grand Floridian, Disney’s Riviera Resort, The Polynesian, and Club Level rooms at Animal Kingdom Lodge and Boardwalk Inn. These Keurig machines provide an easy and convenient way for guests to enjoy freshly brewed drinks throughout their stay. Guests can purchase their own K-cups beforehand or use the supplied varieties provided by the hotel for added convenience.

Is Disney coffee any good?
Many Disney fans now refer to Joffrey’s specialty coffee as “Disney coffee” due to the fact that you can find a Joffery’s stand just about anywhere across the Walt Disney World Resort.
Guests will find K-cups and Cuisinart pods in their hotel rooms, as well as packaged coffee for sale in many of the shops throughout the parks. Joffrey’s offers a specialized Artisan Blend or French Roast Dark Roast blend that continues to bring visitors back to their magical vacation every time they take a sip.
One of the best cups you’ll find is the Kona blend at the Kona Cafe stand found in the lobby of Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
At Disney theme parks and Disney Springs, you can enjoy both Disney’s offerings from Joffery’s as well as the full menu of Starbucks drinks.
Their classic lattes, coffees, and Frappuccinos are available just like they are at any other Starbucks location; guests have the option of choosing from both light and dark roasts, as well as special blends with unique flavor profiles. Whether it’s Joffrey’s dark roast blend or Starbucks classic frappuccino, there is something for everyone at the Walt Disney World Resort!
Refillable Mugs at Disney Resorts
For those looking for more than just a single mug of coffee during their stay at a Disney Resort hotel, there is now an option to purchase Resort Refillable Mugs. These mugs cost $19.99 and provide customers with refills of coffee, tea, cocoa, and soda all-you-care-to-enjoy during their entire stay at the hotel. Refillable mugs can be used in any Quick-Service restaurant located within the resort, but cannot be filled in the theme parks themselves.
These mugs offer not only convenience but also great value – with so much to do and explore during a stay at one of Disney’s resorts, having easy access to unlimited refills can save both time and money! Plus, your mug makes exploring the resort easier – with no need to continuously search for new spots to get your daily caffeine fix!
One trick we’ve used is to stash our resort mugs in our backpacks so that we can get refills at the resorts near the parks during our day. This is a great trick when you don’t want to buy a soda while you’re in the Magic Kingdom, and you’re only a quick Monorail ride away from the Contemporary!
They’re also great for filling up with some water at the water fountains throughout the parks too. Just make sure you wash them out really good!
