Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

by Kristi on September 1, 2015

Disney Caribbean Beach ResortOne of my favorite places to stay when traveling to Walt Disney World is Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.  Talk about a tropical paradise, Disney does a great job at making you feel like you have stepped right onto a Caribbean island oasis.

Caribbean Beach Standard RoomWe’ve stayed in both the Pirate rooms and the Water View room. Both are fantastic, but I prefer the standard rooms!  They are less expensive per night and they sleep 5.

Caribbean Beach Resort Hidden Bunk BedBesides having two queen size beds, there is also a pull out bench that turns into a small bunk. This is great for a family of five, or like us, a family of four whose kids don’t want to share a bed.

Another benefit to the water view rooms is that you are able to see Epcot’s fireworks show from the balcony!

ShuttersIf you are a fan of Caribbean food, you will find some great options both for both quick and table service.  Shutters is fantastic. Be sure to try the Caribbean Surf & Turf! Delicious.

Caribbean Beach Bike RentalBesides the amazing pool area, there is a lot of outdoor activities at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. You can take a bike ride, run on the trail or even take a fishing excursion! Kids can even take a Pirate cruise so parents can have a little time to themselves!  Of course, there are also the activities you have at all Disney resorts… outdoor movie night, marshmallow roasting and arcade games.

What do you love most about Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort?

Barber Shop on Main Street USA

by Kristi on August 31, 2015

Disney Barber ShopIf you are looking to get a first haircut for your child or just want a neat experience, check out the Barber Shop on Main Street USA.   This quaint little barber shop takes you back to the days of old and the one on one attention you get can’t be beat.  Prices range from $15-$19, so really affordable for everyone.  Those who purchase the first haircut package ($19) even get a FREE set of Mickey Mouse Ears!

Barber Shop on Main Street USAThis barber shop only has three chairs, so you would be best served to get a reservation in advance.  If you can’t get a reservation, they do take walk in’s. Just know that you may wait.  We popped in mid-day, and had absolutely no wait to get my son’s hair cut.

Fairy Dust at DisneyOne thing you might not know is that you can get a FREE sprinkling of Fairy Dust at the Barber Shop on Main Street USA! Even if you don’t get your haircut there, you are welcome to stop by & ask for fairy dust!
