Art of Animation - What Kind of Coffee?

Hi all!

My husband is a "coffee snob". I don't want to deal with a grouchy husband for our week in Disney, so I was hoping he'd be able to at least get a good cup of coffee each morning!

What kind of coffee machines do they have in the family suites at Art of Animation? Is the coffee any good?

We're at AK for a day, 2 days at MK and one day at Islands of Adventure. Any tips on where to find good coffee there?

We would just bring our own, but coming from Canada... it can be a pain to get these things over the border and is more trouble than it's worth. I was thinking of having some sent from Amazon with our order to the resort. Any recommendations?

Cheers!

Does anyone know? I hear it's "coffee pods" but I'm not sure which ones?

We're just home yesterday from AoA. They're Cuisinart single cup brewers that use coffee "pods" - like a big round tea bag. The coffee was not impressive in any way. I drank it just so I didn't get a caffeine headache, but was never so happy to see my Keurig this morning!!
I didn't try the coffee in the food court, so I don't know if there's a better option at the resort.

I ordered Wolfgang Puck coffee pods ahead of time and brought them with me. They were MUCH better than the resort provided ones!

I bought this great little coffee maker at Walmart and will be bringing it with me (LM rooms don't have a coffee maker), along with my Lavazza coffee. It takes very little room in my suitcase, and I NEED my coffee!

Sad to say, they don't sell this model in the US?? Not sure why cause it would be perfect to take. Staying in a LM room, and I need my coffee fix too

Yeah, sorry about that. I actually noticed they didn't have it on the US site, but since the poster mentionned she was Canadian, I posted it. It's a great little machine! I makes a very decent cup of java. Not quite as hot as a "full size" machine, but hot enough if you drink it right away.

If they take Senseo pods those are pretty good.

Thanks all! Off to Amazon to see if I can find tastier coffee pods for my DH.
