    can you tell me what coffee makers are in lion king suites and tea making options are in the rooms and which floor levels are the best to stay in

    Hello Colin!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Lion King Suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort are glorious! My family stayed in The Lion King Suites on our first Walt Disney World Resort vacation and we have never looked back.

    During that stay, I remember how crucial our in-room Cuisinart 2-Cup Coffee Maker with accompanying Joffrey's brand coffee servings and compliments were to Mommy and Daddy getting a good start to our Disney Days. This brand of Coffee Maker uses circular pods shaped similarly to many brands of tea bags and in fact a round tea bag could be supplemented for a hot cup of tea.

    By not putting in a pod, the Cuisinart 2-Cup Coffee Maker will process a hot cup of water for a nice cup of tea.

    When I stayed at Disney's Contemporary Resort in April 2017, we were a part of the initial installation of Keurig-brand coffee makers into Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. Upon speaking with a Cast member, they mentioned that Keurig-brand coffee makers were being installed resort-wide over the upcoming months and that Disney's Contemporary Resort was just the beginning.  Having said that, it is possible that Disney's Art of Animation Resort will have switched to Keurig coffee makers by the time you visit.

    The only way to be sure, would be to contact Disney's Art of Animation Resort at (407) 938-7000 a few days before your vacation to inquire if the change has been made.

    In my opinion, the best rooms for The Lion King Suites are on the first floor, near the front door elevators.  This will put you closest to transportation, the Main Building and the Big Blue Pool.

    Hakuna Matata!
