If a frosty, steamy, or just plain delectable beverage is on your mind while you are vacationing at Walt Disney World, we have quite the recommendation for you. Joffrey’s Coffee is the official coffee of Walt Disney World Resort, and you must try it before your Disney vacation ends. You will see Joffrey’s Coffee stands around the Disney World property. Spots in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom, near the United Kingdom in EPCOT’s World Showcase, on Hollywood Studios’ Sunset Boulevard, and at the entrance to Animal Kingdom are all Joffrey’s spots that come to mind. But delicious Joffrey’s beverages are not limited to Parks only. You’ll also find it at one of my favorite Disney hangouts – Disney Springs.
Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea is a local company from Tampa, Florida, just a few hours away from Walt Disney World. Joffrey’s takes pride in roasting high-quality coffee beans and curating blends that grace each Disney Park, Disney Resort hotel, and stands across Walt Disney World Resort. Though Joffrey’s Coffee has been served at select Disney World stands since 1995, it didn’t become the official coffee of Disney World until 2012.
One of my core Disney memories is seeing my dad sip a steaming cup of Joffrey’s coffee at a stand at Disney’s Ticket and Transportation Center as we awaited the morning monorail to the Magic Kingdom in the early 90s. This quintessential Florida company produces a delicious product that has become synonymous with Disney vacations for so many people.
You’ll find a Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company storefront at The Landing at Disney Springs. This is a great spot to stop for a hot cup of coffee, my all-time favorite, iced coffee or flavorful hot tea. You can also swing by this shop to buy Joffrey’s products to take home or to gift to the folks back home. I love buying ground Joffrey’s coffee as souvenirs for family, as thank-you gifts to friends that are pet and house-sitting back home, and of course to take home for myself.
This affordably priced bagged coffee is super fun because the specific roasts and blends are labeled by the restaurants and resorts they are served in at Walt Disney World. Brewing up a steaming up of Joffrey’s in the morning before work when I’m in the “real world” brightens my day and reminds me of the Disney magic. Sipping a cup of Kona Coffee reminds me of bright and delicious breakfasts at Polynesian Village Resort’s Kona Café with my family. Drinking the Tusker House coffee blend makes me reminisce on after-dinner coffee and dessert at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
When visiting the Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company at Disney Springs these days, I enjoy sipping the Walt Disney 50th Anniversary Blend Coffee for only $3.69 a cup. But if you are looking for a specialty coffee, they have a robust menu to choose from. Snag an Espresso, Cappuccino, Latte, Café Latte, or Mocha Latte if you want a hot specialty drink. As an iced coffee fan, I am a sucker for the Nitro Cold Brew on this menu. If you’ve never tried iced coffee or think it isn’t your thing, I beg you to try the Shakin’ Jamaican in this shop. It may just change your mind about iced coffee, it’s that good!
If tea is more your thing, you are in luck. This shop has a great assortment of loose-leaf tea to choose from. You can even order jazzed-up options like a Chai Latte, Iced Chai Latte, or a Tea Latte. If you are looking to beat the heat, the Peach Iced Tea is a yummy fruity option to taste. Other menu items at this spot include made-to-order frozen drinks, specialty liquored coffees, and the frothy and freezing Frozen Cappuccino Dream.
If you are shopping at the opposite end of Disney Springs, there is still a Joffrey’s beverage option near for you to enjoy. Hit the Handcrafted Smoothies Kiosk at Disney Springs Marketplace to cool off and chill out between shop-hopping. All smoothies come in around $7. 39 and with flavors like Banana Split, Purple Piñata, Razzy Jazzy, Tropical Sunset, and Mango Tango you are sure to find a flavor you love.

The Purple Piñata smoothie is an Instagrammable and yummy drink made with apple juice, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and yogurt. The Tropical Sunset smoothie is difficult to resist, made with orange juice, strawberries, bananas, and yogurt. POG juice lovers need to taste the Mango Tango smoothie because it’s made with passion fruit juice, pineapples, mango, papaya, coconut cream, and yogurt.
If a boozy Signature Smoothie Cocktail sounds perfect, this stand can deliver. Try the Tiki Torch, Twisted Green Blackberry, Passion-Rita, Kahlua-Tini, or the Tea Breeze for around $12.99 each.
If you need a caffeine boost, you will find iced coffee options from the other Joffrey’s locations at this stand as well. The Frozen Cappuccino Dream, Nitro Cold Brew, and Shakin’ Jamaican are on this menu, as well as the Peach Iced Tea. If you are visiting Disney Springs in winter, nothing hits the spot like a creamy and rich hot chocolate. Take your drinks to the Advent Health Stage near the water to enjoy live music and unwind with a drink.
