Celebrate National Coffee Day with a Look Ahead to New Mugs Coming to Disney Parks

I love coffee, so you can imagine National Coffee Day, which is celebrated on September 29, is a festive day in the Miller house. Every morning, I brew a fresh pot of coffee which I enjoy all day at work. During the weekends, I sip delicious cups of hot, black coffee from one of my many coffee mugs. Since I know I’m not alone in my love of all things coffee, I thought today was a good day to give you a sneak preview of new mugs coming soon to Disney Parks.


The Disney character mugs in the first image are part of an upcoming Colorful Kitchen collection. While the home décor considers them soup mugs, I know some days require that much coffee.

Coming in October, we will release two mugs as part of Twenty-Eight & Main, the new men’s apparel and accessory collection. Stay tuned for a closer look at this collection with a video coming to the Disney Parks Blog.


In 2014, we introduced a series of mugs inspired by Disney Princesses. The newest mug in that collection will be Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen.”


Finally, these four mugs were inspired by the Mad Tea Party attraction in Fantasyland. The cups and saucers are attached, and they will be released at some point in 2016. Merchandiser Aaron Babcock told me they originally started with purple but decided to release all four colors after seeing the first samples. I think they are a perfect complement the other home goods resembling Disney Park icons such as the salt and pepper shaker trash cans.


I mentioned I brew coffee every day, so I’m excited to try the newest blend in the Disney Parks and Resorts Specialty Coffee Collection from Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea Company. The blend was inspired by Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Master Roastmaster Chris deMezzo worked directly with Sanaa staff to create a blend that not only complemented the foods prepared at Sanaa, but enhanced the overall experience of dining. The end result was a medium roast with bright acidity, great aroma, with a dry winey after taste.

The Sanaa blend sounds exceptional, and I can’t wait to enjoy it in one of these new mugs during National Sanaa Bread Service Day (that is a holiday, correct?).


  • When does the Elsa Princess mug come out? We have all the others, and love the collection.

    Thank you!

  • I see the mad tea cup mugs will be released in “early” 2016 but how early? We will be visiting in March and I MUST get a mug!

  • Love the Minnie and Mickey mugs. Would love to get them for my daughter who moved out of state. Will they be out for Christmas 2015?

  • LOVE the Mad Tea Party mugs! I love anything attraction-themed!

  • Love the new mugs! I can see myself with the Minnie, and of course, the tea party mugs! I only wish there was more availability of the coffee and teas as decaf. We decaf drinkers like our Disney coffee and tea too! Will the Sanaa blend be available in decaf? Hope so!

  • Mad tea party mugs are adorable! Surprised nobody had thought of that yet!

    Will there be a Pluto with the Mickey Minnie and Donald at the top? You need more Pluto merchandise!!!

  • I have been wanting a Mad Tea Party cup that actually resembled the ride cups for a long time now! So excited to see them! A must buy when they are released.

  • Any news on when that Colorful Kitchen collection is coming out?! I’m going to WDW in Novber and would love to pick up some more pieces for my Disney kitchen!!

    • @Catherine – I know the collection is coming soon. I don’t have a confirmed launch date but I would say either by end of this year or early 2016. There are some other fun character pieces in that collection that was designed by the artists of Disney Design Group.

  • Disney mugs and coffee have to be my greatest weakness! My cupboards are overflowing with Disney mugs, but I will never stop! Loving all of these designs…keep up the good work!

  • Nice those look great.

  • eeekkkk! I am so excited for the Elsa mug! Now my little collection will be complete. Already have Aurora, Ariel and Rapunzel at home. I have been waiting patiently for this one! Going to have to sneak it in to go with the other 30 Disney mugs I have 🙂 Thank you so much!

  • I forsee my wife and I having our morning coffee in those wonderful Mickey and Minnie mugs!

  • I am in love with those Mad Tea Party Cups. Any idea if they will be machine washable?

    • @Natalie – The mugs will be dishwasher and microwave safe.
