It’s 8 a.m, and you’re rope-dropping at Disneyland. Depending on how far away you live, you got up roughly three hours before getting to the gate, probably at something like 5 a.m. to make it to Disneyland’s opening moments. Even if you made coffee to drink in the car, that cup is long gone.

You walk up to Market House, the storefront on Main Street U.S.A. that’s actually a Starbucks, only to be confronted with a terrible sight: a line out the door. But even worse, every person is going to order multiple — usually complicated — drinks, for the other members of their party who are already in a ride queue. Expect about 100 frozen drinks and TikTok-inspired “hacked” orders in front of you. It could take an hour to get that cup of coffee, an hour you could be using to get your money’s worth out of that expensive park ticket.

But there’s only one coffee shop in all of Disneyland, and only one in all of Disney California Adventure, right? Well, kind of. There’s only one Starbucks in each park (plus one in Downtown Disney and one hidden backstage for cast members only).

There are, though, a lot of other places to get coffee in the parks, if you know where to look.

Where to get hot coffee at Disneyland This is going to be the toughest find in the parks outside of Starbucks, at least if you want really good coffee. Jolly Holiday Bakery offers espresso beverages. (Pro tip: The morning mobile orders fill up quickly, so place yours while you’re on the tram from the parking garage.)

In Disney California Adventure, you can find good hot coffee at the Cappuccino Cart by the bridge to Pixar Pier.

Otherwise, most of the quick-service restaurants like Golden Horseshoe and Paradise Garden Grill offer hot tea and hot coffee on their menus.

Finding the best iced coffee and cold brew There has been a bona fide revolution when it comes to nitro cold brew, a richer, smoother iced coffee that uses nitrogen in the brewing process. Most of the nitro cold brews at Disneyland have fancy syrups and toppings built into them, but you can order them plain, too.

One of the best in the parks is at Docking Bay 7 in Galaxy’s Edge. The Cold Brew Blak Caf is “cold brew coffee topped with sweet cream cheese and chocolate puffs,” according to the outer rim menu, and it’s truly excellent. I usually drink my coffee black, but I’ll make an exception for this one.

The revamped Cafe Daisy in Mickey’s Toontown offers a Specialty Cold Brrr-ew, which is Joffrey’s Caramel Mudslide iced coffee with sea salt-caramel-toffee sauce and whipped cream. It’s also one of the few places that offer regular nitro cold brew on the menu, rather than requiring that you specifically ask for it plain. A cart by Storybook Land Canal Boats also serves nitro cold brew.

Troubadour Tavern, near the Fantasyland Theatre, now serves some African-inspired offerings because of its location next to the Festival of the Lion King show. It has a Savannah Sweet Potato Cold Brew, with what the menu describes as a “sweet potato cream topper.”
