Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - pinterest

So you woke up early to rope drop at Disneyland or Disney California Adventure. What's your first stop? For many, picking up a cup of joe is essential to fueling up for the rest of the day. Or maybe you need an afternoon boost or something to warm you up at night. Where can you find Disneyland coffee, including all the fun iced coffees in the park? Today, we are covering all of the places to find coffee in Disneyland Resort and calling out a few froggy favorites. (After all, this is the kind of research that we love to do!) Let's hop into all the spots where you can catch your Disneyland coffee buzz. Let's espress-go!

Regular Disneyland Coffee

You can get your basic regular or decaf coffee at most Disneyland quick-service and table-service restaurants. For quick-service locations, just go to mobile order in the Disneyland app and you can have coffee or hot tea in your hand within minutes.

A few restaurants offer a bigger coffee selection with more caffeinated drinks:

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Coffees at Jolly Holiday

  • Jolly Holiday Café serves espresso, lattes, cappuccino, caffè mocha, caramel macchiato, iced caramel macchiato and a Chimney Sweep Cold Brew.
  • Schmoozies! has espresso, lattes, Caffè Americano or Iced Americano as well as coffee drinks with liqueur. This location now opens early.
  • Smokejumpers also offers an Irish Cream Breakfast Cold Brew for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Pym's Test Kitchen offers Cold Brew and Nitro Cold Brew.
  • Maurice's Treats has Nitro Cold Brew and Mocha Nitro Cold Brew (along with some of our favorite Disneyland snacks, BTW).

Starbucks and Joffrey's Coffee at Disneyland Resort

There are three Starbucks locations at Disneyland. One Starbucks in Downtown Disney and one somewhat hidden Starbucks inside each park. Plus, the Cappuccino Cart serves Joffrey's Coffee items.

The in-park Starbucks works a little differently from the Downtown Disney location. In the parks, you can use the Starbucks rewards app and gift cards to pay for drinks, food and merchandise, but you cannot redeem free beverages. You can get a Magic Key discount at Starbucks inside the parks, but not at the Downtown Disney location. At Downtown Disney, you can order ahead with the Starbucks app and redeem rewards.

Here are the coffee shops inside the Disneyland theme parks.

Market House — Disneyland Park

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Man inside Market House

Located on Main Street U.S.A., this Starbucks location accepts Magic Key discounts but does not accept mobile orders. Be prepared: the lines can get pretty long here. The menu is like a typical Starbucks with drinks, pastries and some Disney snacks available. Additionally, you might uncover a secret Disney drink here! There are some limited tables inside this cozy dining space and outside in the alley.

Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café — Disney California Adventure

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Egg Bites at Starbucks DCA

Located at Carthay Circle next to Clarabelle's, this Starbucks location accepts Magic Key discounts but not mobile orders. The menu is like a typical Starbucks with some Disney snacks and treats available. (We sometimes grab a quick breakfast here.) This location has a lot of indoor and outdoor seating.

Cappuccino Cart — Disney California Adventure

Joffrey's is the official Disneyland coffee, and this Joffrey's outdoor stand (with mobile order) is right at the entrance to Pixar Pier and San Fransokyo Square. You can get a variety of coffee drinks here, both hot and cold, including coffee with liqueur, flavor shots or seasonal drinks. This is also a great place to pick up a snack, dessert or even a burrito (either at breakfast or throughout the day).

Iced Coffee at Disneyland Resort

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Black Cafe from Docking Bay 7Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Caramel Macchiato at Jolly HolidayOK, you may have noticed that flavored iced coffees are a pretty big deal at Disneyland. In addition to your year-round options, there are seasonal options you can taste ... and they make a great way to cool off in the warm weather. We did our coffee research with some hoppin' frogs who really love regular coffee and other frogs who enjoy a sweeter iced coffee drink. And we were toadally surprised that there were about four froggy favorites that rose to the top.

Here are our top froggy-favorite coffees in Disneyland:

  1. Cold Brew Black Caf topped with Sweet Cream Cheese and Chocolate Puffs at Docking Bay 7 at Disneyland in Galaxy's Edge. It's a thing of beauty, really. And who doesn't go cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs?
  2. Iced Caramel Macchiato at Jolly Holiday Café in Disneyland Park

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Coffee at Pym Test Kitchen

3. Cold Brew Infusion: Cinnamon & Spice with cinnamon caramel cold brew with cardamom cream foam at Pym's Test Kitchen in Avengers Campus. (This may be a seasonal item, so move quickly. It has Cinnamon Toast Crunch on top, and the cream foam is so yummy!)

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Red Rose Taverne Brew

4. Taverne Cold Brew with caramel, vanilla and cinnamon cold brew with cream at Red Rose Taverne.

Here are some other options (in no particular order), as everyone has different tastes:

  • Chimney Sweep Cold Brew with hickory-smoked syrup, chocolate & caramel sauces, cream and smoked salt-sugar sprinkle at Jolly Holiday Café.
  • Cold Brew — Joffrey's Chicory Cold Brew at Tiana's Palace.

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Iced Coffee at Cafe Daisy in Toontown

  • Specialty Cold Brrr-ew — Joffrey's Coffee Cold Brew caramel mudslide with sea salt-caramel-toffee sauce, topped with whipped cream at Café Daisy in Toontown.

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Sweet Potato Cold Brew at Troubadour Tavern

  • Savannah Sweet Potato Cold Brew topped with sweet potato cream topper at Troubadour Taverne.

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Breakfast Cold Brew at Smokejumpers

  • Breakfast Cold Brew — Chocolate cold brew, toasted marshmallow foam and cocoa crisped rice cereal (also comes with Baileys Irish Cream) at Smokejumper's Grill (now open for breakfast). Are you catching on to the cereal trend for the Disneyland coffee toppers? No complaints here.

Where to Find the Best Coffee in Disneyland - Aunt Cass Caramel Cold Brew

  • Specialty Caramel Cream Cold Brew — Joffrey’s Coffee caramel mudslide cold brew topped with house-made sea salt caramel whipped cream at Aunt Cass Café. (The whipped cream is everything, and the Baymax on the cup is too cute!) San Fransokyo Square is our newest favorite dining spot!

Keep in mind that Disneyland switches out drinks and flavors all the time. Look for special coffee flavors and iced coffee during events and at festival booths during holidays and festivals. I'm still dreaming about the Churro Toffee Cold Brew Latte at one of the Festival of the Holidays booths last year and the Chocolate Cinnamon Comet Cold Brew from Galactic Grill. (It had a churro sticking out of it!) I suppose you can tell that I am on Team Sweet! Hopfully, those favorites return in some way for the 2024 holiday season! If not, we know something yummy will take their place.

Coffee at Disneyland Resort Hotels

The Coffee House — Disneyland Hotel

Open early morning until early afternoon, The Coffee House is your go-to spot for assorted pastries, espresso specialties, cold brew coffees, hot coffee drinks and iced specialties. You can mobile order here.

Tangaroa Terrace — Disneyland Hotel

If you want a bigger breakfast with your coffee, Tangaroa is the place. Here, you can get Joffrey's Coffee Hawaiian Kona Blend. This location accepts mobile orders.

GCH Craftsman Grill — Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa

This quick-service restaurant opens early for breakfast and coffee. This restaurant sometimes accepts mobile orders.

Grand Californian Great Hall Cart — Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa
