What to Expect
Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort aims to bring a little piece of Caribbean paradise to Florida. Five colourful villages make up this resort and are named after the Caribbean islands of Trinidad, Martinique, Barbados, Aruba, and Jamaica. The muted pastel colours of the walls contrast well with the brightly coloured metal roofs of the low rise buildings that house the guestrooms. Each village has its own swimming pool and playground for the children, with chaise lounges, cabanas and hammocks dotted around for guests to relax in. Guests can congregate at Old Port Royale, with its Spanish fortress themed pool and numerous dining and shopping options. Please note that this hotel is non smoking except in designated areas.
The lakeside recreation area is situation adjacent to Old Port Royale and is where guests can rent boats or bikes, as well as being the starting point for exploring the 1.4 promenade around the lake. In the middle of the lake is Parrot Cay Island which is home to a number of brightly coloured birds and offers a children’s playground and picnic area for guests wanting to do some exploring.
Rooms are nicely spaced out amongst six colourful low storey buildings and are all close to the Old Port Royale entertainment area. When walking into Old Port Royale guests will feel the Caribbean vibe, with pirate’s cannons, tropical birds and bright flowers creating a great party atmosphere. There is a shop which sells souvenirs, a games room, lounge area as well as the food court and Shutters restaurant. Room service is offered from late afternoon until midnight and guests can choose from a variety of pizzas and sandwiches.
Guests staying at this resort are eligible for the complimentary Disney's Magical Express service, so you don’t need to worry about arranging transfers and can start enjoying your holiday sooner. Coaches pick up guests at Orlando International Airport and drop off at Walt Disney World® Resort Hotels. Guests arriving at the airport between 5am and 10pm will have their bags collected from the baggage claim and be delivered straight to their rooms. If guests arrive outside of these hours, then unfortunately this service is not available, so guests must collect their bags from baggage claim and take them on the coach with them.
