Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is set on the beautiful white-sand beaches of 45-acre Barefoot Bay lake. Feel like you have sailed away to the inviting Caribbean, where lazy days are devoted to sun and sand, swaying palm trees and island foods. The guest rooms are arranged into six villages that are spread out over 200 landscaped acres. Each village has 2-story buildings that are clustered around their own swimming pool.
Check-in, concierge services, hotel amenities and dining are all conveniently accessed at the newly reimagined Old Port Royale, the hub of the resort. This colorfully appointed lobby is where you can grab a quick meal at Centertown Market, browse Calypso Trading Post or enjoy a sit-down meal at Sebastian’s Bistro, a new restaurant that offers waterfront dining. The lively Banana Cabana outdoor bar and lounge is located adjacent to Sebastian’s Bistro. Since Caribbean Beach Resort is spread out around Barefoot Bay Lake, it may be some distance from your room. If you choose to book a Preferred Room it will put you in a location right next to Old Port Royale.
Regular rooms have two queen beds or one king-size bed, and some rooms have the capability of sleeping a 5th guest with a child-size fold down bed in the armoire. There are also Pirate Rooms here at the resort which are a big hit! These unique rooms feature pirate-ship beds (double beds), buccaneer accessories and swashbuckling decor. These rooms are located next to the Preferred Rooms. There are six bus stops located around this resort. If you choose a Standard room you can always hop on a bus to get around to Old Port Royale. This is one resort that we do highly recommend upgrading to either a Preferred Room or a Pirate Room for a better location.
There are plenty of activities to stay busy at the resort. A marina rents a variety of watercraft—from sailboats and pontoon boats to a canoe for two. There are landscaped paths to walk, bikes to ride or just soak up some fun at Fuentes del Morro, the sprawling pool complex themed like an old Spanish fortress—complete with towers, antique cannons and two waterslides. The main pool has a zero-entry end to it which is nice for the little ones. A cute children’s water play area resembling a pirate ship is located right next to the feature pool and is completely fenced in. Children must be less than 48 inches to play inside the fence.
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is home to the central station for the Disney Skyliner gondola system. From here, you can take the Disney Skyliner to conveniently access two of Disney’s exciting theme parks, Hollywood Studios and Epcot, as well as several other Disney resorts.
