Travel Tip for Coffee Lovers

Starbucks PacksThough Starbucks in Disney Parks are coming soon, I'll be headed to Disney in just a few days and will need my morning coffee fix. One of my favorite parts of staying in a Disney Vacation Club Villa is that we have a 10 cup coffee maker in the kitchen. With this in room convenience I'm assured to get a morning cup of joe that suits my tastes perfectly.

My tip for easy morning coffee is to pre-portion the grounds for a pot of coffee into a small ziploc bag for each morning of vacation.

We'll have 5 mornings in Disneyland, which means 5 small baggies each with 6 heaping tablespoons of coffee.  I then put the small baggies into a larger freezer bag with some of my favorite filters.  It's easy in the morning to just wake up and start a pot from each pre-portioned bag of my favorite roast.  The double bagging keeps everything neat, together, and doesn't take up much room in a suitcase or carry-on bag.  Clean-up is simple (just put the used bags in the garbage) and you don't have waste from unused beans.

For travelers staying in a standard Walt Disney World Resort room, you'll find a 4 cup pot on your bathroom vanity.  Portions can be adjusted to suit your taste and the coffee pot available.   It doesn't matter if you drink Folgers, Starbucks, or even roast your own.  Pre-packing the perfect portions of coffee and your own filters will help you wake up knowing that a perfect cup is on it's way.

One more thing checked off my To Do List for Disneyland!
