National Coffee Day is held on September 29 each year, and it’s one of my favorite days to celebrate my love of all things coffee (I’m currently sipping a cup of coffee while writing this story). You may recall my fellow author Rachel Bshero shared how Joffrey’s Coffee is celebrating this flavorful day at Walt Disney World Resort. I thought I’d add to the festivities with a sneak preview of new mugs coming soon to Disney Parks.
We have created several mugs of various shapes and sizes as part of the “Mickey’s Really Swell Coffee” collection. These mugs include stylized images of Mickey and Minnie Mouse enjoying an afternoon together.
The four mugs with geometric patterns look like they were transported directly from the 1960s, while newlyweds will be delighted to find new “Mr” and “Mrs” mugs.
I was particularly happy to see new mugs with images of Humphrey the Bear, Kronk from Disney’s “The Emperor’s New Groove,” and the Fairy Godmother from Walt Disney’s “Cinderella.”
We are also releasing a double-sided mug inspired by the Mayor from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.” The Mayor’s removable hat is made from silicone. I also liked the Mr. Potato Head mug inspired by the Toy Story Mania attraction.
Finally, we’ll have two new mugs from the Twenty Eight & Main Collection. One mug is for enjoying the wildest cup of coffee in the wilderness, while the other mug has me shouting, “Kungaloosh!”
After seeing these mugs, I’m anxious to try the newest blend in the Disney Parks and Resorts Specialty Coffee Collection from Joffrey’s Coffee. The blend was inspired by Le Cellier Steakhousein Canada Pavilion at Epcot. The Roastmaster created this dark roasted blend using beans from Central and South America. It contains notes of citrus with sweet caramel-brown sugar, and has a slight smoky finish.
Look for these new mugs this fall in select merchandise locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. Once released, guests may also find select mugs via the free Shop Disney Parks app.
