Escape from the fast paced theme parks with a little island love. Caribbean Beach Resort embodies the essence that makes all the Caribbean islands so majestic, yet so calming. One of Walt Disney World’s Moderate Resorts, built in 1988, guests can choose one of 5 villages to stay around. Choose from Martinique, Barbados, Jamaica, Aruba, and Trinida, all built around 45 acre Barefoot Bay, and all with a beautiful island theme.
A little piece of paradise ..
All the guest rooms are decorated in a distinct island theme, with each village just a little different from the others. You will find individual pools and playgrounds (at some of the villages) as well as the amenities that surround the lake. There is an interior bus that travels from village to village.
The shores of the bay feature beaches, hammocks, and other activities such as beach volleyball. The resort also features various water sports at the Marina, where you can rent various watercraft, such as paddle boats and speed boats by the half-hour.
Say ARRRRR …
Caribbean Beach Resort is one of the few resorts with overtly themed rooms. It’s a great place to let your inner pirate shine by staying in one of the Pirate Rooms.
Resort facilitates are houses at Old Port Royale, where you can the front desk, dining, and great little store. When the little pirates get hungry, there are lots of places to grab a bite to eat.
- Sebastian’s Bistro– Caribbean Beach’s full-service restaurant, serving American cuisine with Caribbean influences.
- Centertown Market– Caribbean Beach’s quick service restaurant, located at Old Port Royale
- Banana Cabana – pool bar located at Old Port Royale which serves snacks and drinks poolside.
- Spyglass Grill– located by Trinidad’s pool serves American food with a Caribbean twist.
When Disney’s Skyliner was built, a hub was installed for Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort guests. It’s a great way to visit Hollywood Studios and to get a bird’s eye view of the “the world”.
Disney DVC’s latest resort, Riviera Resort, was built on demolished sections of Barbados and Martinique and we will cover all those amenities that come with staying there another time.
