The Ultimate Guide to the Best Coffee in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Walt Disney World vacations can be exhausting due to early mornings, late nights, and lots of walking! To keep your energy up, you may need to refuel with coffee on your trip, and you have quite a few different options!

Creature Comforts

Coffee and Disney go together like Donald and Daisy, and over in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you’ll find plenty of choices no matter what kind of coffee fix you’re after. Of course, there’s the obvious Creature Comforts (the Animal Kingdom Starbucks location), but those lines can be long, and you might be looking for something a little different.

So, let’s see what our options might be for coffee in Animal Kingdom!

If your perfect Disney day includes taking in the sights while walking with coffee in hand, you’re probably wondering where you can get the best cups of this beloved caffeinated beverage.

Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew

Like we mentioned, Creature Comforts (Starbucks) is probably the most popular choice for coffee at Animal Kingdom, which also means there may be a long line to endure for a cup of joe! But you have other options throughout the park.

Joffrey’s Coffee

Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Co. is the official Specialty Coffee provider for Walt Disney World Resort. At Animal Kingdom, you’ll find two Joffrey’s kiosks. There is a Joffrey’s kiosk standing outside of the entrance to Animal Kingdom. Grab a cup on the way in or out of the park!

Plus, you’ll find Royal Anandapur Tea Company in Asia, which is a unique Joffrey’s kiosk in two ways: first, it is so well-themed within the land that its appearance is entirely unique.

And second, while you’ll find all of the Joffrey’s specialty coffee beverages here, you’ll also find a unique-to-Royal Anandapur Tea Company drink: the Frozen Chai!

There, you’ll find specialty and seasonal sips –– plus a selection of HUGE donuts and other pastries! You might spot the occasional line at a Joffrey’s location in Animal Kingdom as well, but it shouldn’t take too long to grab the cup you crave.

Hot Coffee

If you’re a coffee connoisseur like many of us are, you might want more hot coffee options.

Nothing like a cup of Disney coffee

In that case, you can find this warm, delectable beverage at: Flame Tree Barbecue, Harambe Market, Isle of Java, Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery, Pizzafari, Restaurantosaurus, Satu’li Canteen, Tamu Tamu Refreshments, Trek Snacks, and Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes (breakfast only).

Cold Brew

Craving a refreshing cup of cold brew? Trust us — touring Animal Kingdom on a hot, sunny day can be difficult, and you might not want a warm cup of coffee. Opt for something cooler instead by heading to Isle of Java for a Shakin’ Jamaican. You’ll locate this kiosk on Discovery Island before entering Asia.

Something about coffee in Disney World just hits different.

Sometimes, cold brews pop up at quick service locations so keep an eye out.

Specialty Coffee

If you love specialty coffee, then we suggest heading to Isle of Java for a cappuccino, espresso, or latte. The Island Cappuccino spices things up with Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum with White Chocolate! Here, you’ll find seasonal sips (like Irish Coffee) during the holiday season. In the past, we’ve also sampled an Iced version in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

Want something with a little kick? If so, it’s time to sip an African Coffee with Amarula Cream Liqeur from Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery or Tamu Tamu Refreshments!

What about the table service restaurants? You’ll find some delectable sips there, too! At Nomad Lounge or Tiffins, try the Mustang Coffee with Crown Royal, Brown Sugar, and Butter.

Mustang Coffee

The butter lends a creaminess (in place of a coffee creamer) which results in a really smooth and easy to drink coffee with a hint of sweetness coming from the brown sugar.

Also, Nomad Lounge and Tiffins offer an espresso, cappuccino, or latte with Joffrey’s® Coffee Shade-Grown Sumatra. In addition, Tiffins has more hot coffee cocktails and press pot options!


Rainforest Cafe, Tusker House Restaurant, and Yak & Yeti Restaurant serve coffee as well.

NO matter where you find yourself craving a caffeine fix at Animal Kingdom, you’re never too far from your morning mug, afternoon pick-me-up, or evening dessert coffee!
