Disney has many unusual and coveted adult beverages, and those are certainly worth the merit they receive. Today, however, I want to talk about the fun and unusual non alcoholic drinks you can find at Walt Disney World. There are so many unique offerings that will keep your kids happy and even satisfy your adult palette. Here is my list of top five non alcoholic beverages at Disney World.
1. The PB&J Milk Shake: You can drink this unusual treat at The 50′s Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios. The name of this shake may put you off, but it is certainly worth a taste. It is a time-tested flavor combination and it does not disappoint, even in a blended drink!
If your a coffee enthusiast like myself there is nothing better than a good cup of coffee in the morning. I love coffee so much even when its hot outside I pour my coffee over ice just to get my fix. Most people who have been to Walt Disney World know that the choices are very limited. They are better than they used to be but still not the greatest.
While I am not going to list every possible location to get a good cup of coffee at Disney World I will highlight a few of my favorites and then give you a chance to chime in on other places we need to try.
- Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Resort – Probably the best place at Disney World for coffee lovers. The Kona Coffee they serve there in the French Press Pot is phenomenal! It is shipped in from Hawaii and has made a lasting impression on me that I will never forget. If you are not in the mood for Tonga Toast just stop by the Kona Cafe Bar right next door for some coffee to go.
- The Writers Stop at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – A cozy little book store/coffee shop. They have a barista on staff whipping out the drinks for coffee fanatics. Many people have never stopped here but it is more known for the Carrot Cake Cookies.
- Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery at Disney Animal Kingdom – While most people have a hard time finding this shop, and it is more known for their CUPCAKES the Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery has shade-grown gourmet coffees. It might be a long walk to get there but well worth it!
There are a ton of other places to get good coffee at Disney World like Contemporary Grounds, Grand Floridan Cafe and many more. Till Starbucks moves in were going to have to settle for what is out there. For now I want to hear from you where is your favorite place for a cup of coffee at Walt Disney World?

Most people who have been to Walt Disney World at least once and is a coffee lover like myself know that the choices are very limited. I have been to just about every location for breakfast including all the character locations, quick service counters, and casual eateries.
So far the best cup of coffee has to be at Kona Cafe in the Polynesian Resort. They serve up Estate-grown Kona Coffee in a very nice french press pot. It supposed to serve two people but I get one just for myself.
It would be nice to eat breakfast every day at Kona Cafe but lets be honest who really wants to do that?
For the most part the coffee at the other eateries is just ok. Disney seems to be taking advice from its visitors since Starbucks and Joffrey’s Coffee spots are showing up all over the Walt Disney World Resort.
So what do you do if you can’t make it out to one of these newer Coffee Hot Spots or to Kona Cafe for Breakfast???
I am going to break down a few options for you to try the next time you are at Walt Disney World to get really good cup of coffee no matter where you are.
Tip # 1 – Starbucks Via & Starbucks Via Iced – Someone gave me a free sample of these a few months ago..At first I was a little leary to try instant coffee. But I will honestly say this is a great cup of coffee. If you dont have access to good coffee or to a coffee maker I suggest packing a box of these. The iced flavor is great to add to a bottle of water but for me I need to add some flavored creamer to the cold variety.
Tip # 2 – French Press Maker – I know this tip will take a little bit of planning but I think it is well worth the space in your suitcase. If you pick up a French Press before your trip and a bag of Starbucks Coffee (be sure to ask them to grind it for a press pot) you will have a great cup of coffee every morning in your room. Just put your coffee in a portable cup and if you need to add creamer and sugar do it while you are at breakfast. For instructions on how to use a press pot along with a good history lesson check out this website.
Tip #3 – Portable Creamer – One way you can mask the flavor of a so so cup of coffee is flavored creamer. Lets be honest we have all done this. Before you leave for Disney pack some Coffee-mate portable creamer packets and mask that mediocre coffee.
