Coffee and tea are hot these days. Wherever you travel, it seems another shop spouts the beverages. So we're not surprised that Walt Disney World stirs their own versions into the pot. Here are some of their best.
Coffee Shops at Walt Disney World
Drop in at Epcot's Tangierine Café for a dark Moorish espresso at the Morocco pavilion. Its aroma warms you like a tempered breeze blowing in off the Sahara.
Rumor has it that Mickey Mouse even takes coffee breaks in the winter. Although he probably goes home to Minnie for his, you should try the Sunshine Tree Terrace in the Magic Kingdom. This Adventureland stop serves invigorating espressos as well as frothy cappuccinos and lattes.
For a frozen slurp of mocha, head over to Beaches and Cream Soda Shop at the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Request a drizzle of chocolate in a wonderful coffee milk shake.
True coffee aficionados will find several heavenly java treats. At Kona Cafe, the breakfast spot at the Polynesian Resort, order a press pot of smooth Hawaiian coffee for a memorable brew. Both Boma and Jiko, the Animal Kingdom Lodge's restaurants, serve a nutty Kenyan roast. Fans of Cuban coffee should go have a cup of joe at Bongos Cuban Café in Downtown.
The fanciest coffee service, however, is offered in the exclusive Victoria and Albert's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. The Cona brewing method removes any bitter taste, leaving purest bean flavors.
Tea at Walt Disney World
Enjoy a British tea at the Garden View Lounge in Disney's Grand Floridian. In addition to the soothing cups, choose dainty sandwiches and sweet scones for a proper afternoon snack.
Epcot rounds out the tea selection with mint tea served piping hot at Restaurant Marrakesh in Morocco and green Chinese teas at Nine Dragons at China pavilion.
