    I am traveling with my young adult daughters who love good coffee and/or lattes. Looking for into on good coffee houses either in the parks or the hotels. We're staying near Epcot at the Disney Beach Resort. Keep in mind we are NOT Starbuck's fans.

    Ooh, Brenda, you've come to the right place! I have to thank my fellow Disney Mom Amanda W. for alerting me to your question. Amanda is well aware of my coffee addiction and wanted to be sure I got to share my tips with you!

    Since you say you are staying near Epcot, I'm guessing you are staying at Disney's Beach Club Resort (not Caribbean Beach). In that case - you are ALL SET! At the Beach Club Marketplace shop you can get espresso drinks, in addition to gelato and a selection of breakfast, sandwich and salad items to go.
    When you arrive in Epcot, you can find the same espresso service in the Espresso Coffee & Pastries kiosks in World Showcase. There is one between the American and Italy pavilions and one between the UK and Canada. They serve hot or iced espresso, lattes, mochas, frozen coffee and other drinks. You can also find a espresso in the Patisserie in the France and I've heard the Tangierine Cafe in Morocco has a wonderful coffee & espresso bar too - I need to check that one out myself!

    In Disney's Hollywood Studios, head over to Starring Rolls Cafe for espresso and good old iced coffee too. Another good choice is the hidden gem Writer's Stop at the end of New York Street which serves espresso drinks as well.

    In Animal Kingdom, you can find some wonderful espresso at Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery or the Royal Anandapur Tea Company and an Espresso Coffee & Pastry kiosk at the entrance plaza.

    In Disney's Polynesian Resort, there is actually a coffee bar outside of Kona Cafe but I can never seem to catch it when it's open, so you could always stop in to the Cafe and get a fresh pot of pressed Kona coffee. Over in Disney's Contemporary Resort on the 1st floor is Contemporary Grounds, which serves delicious hot and iced coffees and espresso drinks.

    I hope that gives you some good options to keep the caffeine flowing while you enjoy the rest of Walt Disney World. Have a Java-licious time! ~Suzannah
