Disney Caribbean Beach Resort

The Disney Caribbean Beach Resort is the most colorful of the Disney hotels. Take a trip to the islands, mon. This hotel is built for relaxation. Hammocks are strung up all around the beaches. MMmmm??? Take a nap on a beach.


Hey Mrs. Mom ...



The Disney Caribbean Beach Resort is a vacation destination in itself. The resort is dedicated to giving guests the experience of a true Caribbean getaway without leaving the U.S. In true Disney fashion, the Resort offers something for every member of the family on your perfect Disney World vacation.

The resort surrounds a 45 acre lake called Barefoot Bay which has a island in the middle named Caribbean Cay (pronounced Key) Island. The island is connected to the rest of the resort by two long bridges. These bridges also connect the Jamica and Aruba villages to Old Port Royale.




Guest Rooms

Your perfect stay will be at one of the six villages complete with lush and tropical landscaping. Each village is a city to itself (or so it seems) and rooms reflect the Caribbean theme in the furnishings and architecture. Standard rooms are complete with tropical colors and ceiling fans create a relaxed atmosphere.


Several views are available including pool, standard, water and more. A number of rooms are wheelchair accessible or include conveniences for the hearing impaired.  In 2009, Disney opened pirate-themed rooms as a test of specially themed rooms.

Custom House

Your first, and probably last stop at the Caribbean Beach will be at Custom House. This is the front desk of the resort. This impressive structure houses check-in, check-out, bell services and laundry drop off (for those who want Disney to do their laundry).

Old Port Royale, fun and more

Activities at the Disney Caribbean Beach Resort cater to all levels of fitness and interests. Water lovers can rent sailboats, canoes, pontoon boats, Sea Raycer boats and Pedal boats. Land lovers can pick up a bike or surrey and enjoy a leisurely ride along the promenade.


For sun worshipers, Barefoot Bay offers white sands for dozing and the volleyball courts invite a friendly match. Arcade lovers will find the latest in video and pinball games in the Goombay Games Arcade. Jog or stroll the 1.4-mile jogging trail as it winds through the tropical landscape.


Kids can burn off all their energy at the Caribbean Cay playground while they can slide, swing and climb. With six pools from which to choose, there’s no lack of water fun. Complete with water cannons, water slides, squirt hoses, water buckets and spas, everyone in the family will find a place to splash or relax.

The Old Port Royale Food Court, which is located in the Old Port Royale (imagine that) features American favorites such as pizza, pasta and hamburgers. If you'd like to grab a quick meal can pick up fresh fruit and pastries at the Grab N Go market or pack a picnic lunch with a sandwich from Montegos Deli, which also serves pancakes and deserts.


For a leisurely dining experience, stop at Sutter’s at Old Port Royale and sample some Pineapple-marinated chicken or other American cuisine served with a tropical twist. 


Dad saw a question once. It asked if one could walk from the Caribbean Beach Resort to the Magic Kingdom? Some people. Sure Dad answered. It's only about 5 miles without any sidewalks, through traffic, down an interstate (hey, it seems like an interstate) ... You get the picture.


Transportation from the CBR is pretty simple. You either drive or jump on one of Disney's Luxury Motor Coaches (buses). The buses run from the hotel to all the theme parks, water parks and Downtown Disney.


The Disney Caribbean Beach Resort is almost in the middle of Disney World. It's just a couple of blocks from Disney's Hollywood Studios and a short distance to the back entrance to Epcot. The Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdoms are a bit of a drive.

Dad's Bottom Line

Dad didn't have a great experience at the Caribbean Beach Resort, (Dad's Caribbean Beach experience) but It probably wasn't the hotels fault. The new bedding (and better weather) might make a difference.
