Two new quick service food and drink venues are coming to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in the next few months.

A new grab-and-go dining location serving coffee, ready-made sandwiches and snacks will debut in late summer, followed by a new frozen drink counter in the fall. Both will be located in the Swan lobby.

The new grab-and-go, Java, will feature sweet and savory breakfast options as well as sandwiches, wraps, salads and desserts throughout the day. The venue will also serve a variety of teas, espressos, frappés and coffees, including a special Nitro Brew, cold brewed with liquid nitrogen, as well as wines, beer, juices and more.

“The demand for quick food and drink options has continued to grow among our guests,” said the resort’s Director of Food and Beverage Luciano Sperduto. “Whether they’re headed to the theme parks for the day or are in and out of meetings, these two new options will give guests, delicious ways to stay energized while they’re on the go.”

The additions are among the latest food and beverage changes at the resort, following the recent redesign and new menu launch at Shula’s Steak House earlier this year, and the additions of the grab-and-go, fuel, and Phins lounge at the Dolphin in 2017.

I agree. Picabu is not a gourmet restaurant by any means; but it's a convenient cafeteria, and I can't complain about the meals I've bought there. And they have a nice seating area there as well.

I haven't been there in a few years, but last time was there the food was good, reasonably priced (by theme park standards) and had generous portions.

The Dolphin just got a swanky grab-n-go, the Swan needs one too. You don't expect guests to walk a hundred yards for one now, do you?

I might give it that status because it has 24 hour food. The quality and service... leave a lot to be desired.

Yeah, it could use a refresh, but I still consider it one of the hidden dining gems of WDW.

Take that Universal!

Interesting. Well its a nice option to have on the way out to the parks. I do enjoy having that option at the Dolphin but I prefer to stay at the Swan.

From the construction walls I’ve seen in person, this will be between the swan fountain and basically the main entrance. You’re right in that there’s not a lot of space there, so this will be relatively tiny but I’m sure they’ll make it work.

OMG! YES!!!! We always end up there late night and it is such a strange layout and space...Really needs an overhaul!

As a convention/business hotel primarily, S&D really needed grab and go -- and probably needs even more than this.

Can they PLEASE renovate and overhaul Picabu next?! Desperately needs it.

I'm curious as to where this will be in the Swan Lobby. It's quite small. Maybe where the Concierge currently sits, or where the existing coffee bar is?
