Coffee is an important part of any day but especially for busy Disney parks days. Grabbing coffee at your resort is a great way to save time in the parks as the Starbucks coffee shops and Joffrey’s Coffee stands tend to accumulate long lines in the morning. One of the many perks of staying DVC is that several of these resorts have their own coffee shops onsite, so you don’t have to wait until you get to the parks to enjoy your boost of caffeine. But which coffee shops are worth visiting during your next DVC vacation? Here are the best coffee shops at DVC resorts!
Carousel Coffee – DVC Boardwalk Villas
One of the newest coffee shops to open at a DVC resort is Carousel Coffee at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort. Carousel Coffee is a cute coffee shop that has all the charm of Disney’s Boardwalk Resort. Guests can indulge in specialty coffee beverages as well as teas, lemonades, and delicious fresh-made pastries and breakfast items. Carousel Coffee is famous for its seasonal specialty drinks and blended coffee.
Le Petit Cafe – Disney’s Riviera Resort
Disney’s Riviera Resort is home to Le Petit Cafe, a coffee shop and bakery by day and a cocktail and late-night bites lounge by night. Le Petit Cafe serves many unique coffee creations like the Almond Cold Brew, and the Lavender Iced Tea Lemonade. Le Petit Cafe’s pastries and desserts are reminiscent of France and are irresistible! And with Riviera’s location being on the Disney Skyliner route, you can easily grab a quick coffee to-go on your way to Epcot or Hollywood Studios.
Green Cabin Lounge – Disney’s Vero Beach Resort
One of the reasons why Disney’s Vero Beach Resort feels so inclusive is because you don’t have to leave the property for anything, coffee included! The Green Cabin Room is located on the second floor of the main lobby and extends out to a deck overlooking the ocean. The Green Cabin Room is a coffee shop in the morning and a bar and lounge in the afternoon and evenings. This lounge brings an element of sophistication to guests with their chess boards and intricate decor. The bartenders at The Green Cabin room can make you just about any coffee drink you desire. During my visit in 2023, the barkeeper was happy to make me a vanilla shaken espresso!
Contemporary Grounds – Bay Lake Tower/ Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Another coffee shop located on a DVC resort’s property is Contemporary Grounds. Located in the main Contemporary building adjacent to DVC’s Bay Lake Tower, Contemporary Grounds proudly serves Joffrey’s coffee in a variety of ways. Contemporary Grounds serves Nitro Cold Brew, the famous Joffrey’s coffee Shakin Jamaican Cold Brew, as well as variety of smoothies and breakfast pastries. With Contemporary Grounds being located just off the monorail line, guests can easily stop here for their morning brew on their way to Magic Kingdom or Epcot!
