    Hi Again! We are doing a split stay at BCV and AKL and wondering the type of coffee marker at each. I know coffee is provided; however, we sometimes prefer something stronger. Thank you

    Hi Suzann!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love a split stay because each resort is so different and each offers its own unique dining and activities! It sounds like you have two beautiful resorts selected for your upcoming visit. Stormalong Bay, the pool at Disney’s Beach Club Resort is often considered to be the best on property, so be sure to leave yourself time for a splashtastic afternoon at the pool. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is known for its rich culture and unique activities, so check out the recreation calendar on arrival to see what is offered during your stay.

    I am a night shift nurse, so I am all about coffee each day. I too prefer to bring my own coffee and accompaniments with me to brew that perfect cup. All Disney Vacation Club Deluxe Villa Accommodations have a standard, Mr. Coffee 12 cup coffee maker, with a flat bottom filter. You will find this type of coffee maker in both Beach Club Villas and Animal Kingdom Villas.

    You mention staying at “AKL” which is the abbreviation for Animal Kingdom Lodge, rather than the villas. If you will be staying in a Deluxe Villa at either Jambo House or Kidani Village, you can expect that same 12 cup coffee maker. If however, you are staying in a standard resort room at Jambo House, you will instead find a Keurig style machine in your room.

    You can bring your coffee from home, but you will also find a small selection of coffee necessities in the gift shops at each resort, in case you forget something, or wish to purchase grocery items once you arrive.

    Wishing you a happily caffeinated visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
