One of my favorite places to stay when traveling to Walt Disney World is at 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.
The resort is the largest on Disney property and is divided into sections with very tropical names: Trinidad (North & South), Martinique, Barbados, Aruba, and Jamaica. Each village has its own small pool, laundry facility and bus stop
The rooms are lovely and have a tropical feel. Some rooms feature a hidden bed so that the room can sleep five.
5 Reasons to love Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
- We’ve stayed in both the Caribbean Beach Pirate rooms and the Water View room. Both are fantastic, but I prefer the standard rooms with a water view! At night, you can actually see the Epcot fireworks from the balcony.
- Many rooms sleep 5. Having that bench that turns into a small bed is even great for families of four whose kids don’t want to share a bed.
- If you are a fan of Caribbean food, you will find some great dining options at Caribbean Beach Resort both for both quick and table service.
- Looking for some fun in the sun? There is an expansive zero entry pool that looks like a Spanish fort with two water slides. What is nice about the pool is that it is right near the food court, so you can easily have lunch poolside! If you have little ones, you will LOVE the enclosed kiddie area that sits adjacent to the main pool. Lots of water fun with slides that are the perfect size for preschoolers!
- Besides 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’s Coming to Caribbean Beach Resort?
- Caribbean Beach Resort will be closing Shutters restaurant and replace it with Sebastian’s Bistro, The decor will change and it will be extended so guests can have waterfront tables. The menu will still feature flavors of both Latin and Caribbean cuisine.
- As stated previously, the Centertown Market will be a new quick-service dining location.
- The SkyLiner transportation terminal is currently being built. If you remember from our What’s coming to Disney post, the Skyliner will eventually connect a few Disney resorts to Hollywood Studios and Epcot.
