Caribbean Beach Resort

Disney's Caribbean Beach is a Moderate Resort that celebrates the spirit of tropical locales—from the legacy of colonial forts and architecture to lively markets, exotic birds, and relaxing strolls on the sand. Each island complex is bright, airy, and colorful, and overlooks a 45-acre lake with sandy beaches (beaches are not swimmable).


Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort has 1500 rooms that capture the essence of 5 distinct islands: Barbados, Jamaica, Martinique, Trinidad, and Aruba. Here, you can celebrate the spirit of the Caribbean with blissful sights and fun-filled activities. 


Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is located at 1114 Cayman Way, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830.
Those planning trips later in 2019 and beyond will want to note that Caribbean Beach is one of the Disney Resorts that will be served by the brand new Skyliner gondola! This will open a new way to get from Caribbean Beach to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The Skyliner gondolas will take flight on September 29, 2019.

Transportation:

Bussing is provided to all parks and Disney Springs and buses depart approximately every 15-20 minutes. From Caribbean Beach, the bus ride to Magic and Animal Kingdoms is approximately 20 minutes. It is approximately 15 minutes to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The ride to Disney Springs is approximately 25 minutes. In addition, internal bussing allows you to get from point A to point B within the resort without having to walk far.


Minnie Van Service is available through the Lyft App. Drivers are Disney Cast members. The van includes child seats for up to 2 children. The Chevy Traverse option will seat up to 6 total guests. Prices vary.


Taxi, Uber, and Lyft are available for quick service (and cost less than Minnie Vans) to anywhere you may need to go, on or off Disney property. Prices vary.


If you happen to drive your own car to Disney, overnight, self-parking is $19 per night.


Pools:
There is one featured pool - Fuentes del Morro.  Guests make a splash at this zero-entry pirate’s paradise, themed like a colonial Spanish fortress. Swashbuckling adventurers can zip by on one of 2 waterslides—including one measuring 102 feet long—and feel the spray of man-of-war-cannons. Little ones can cavort at the shipwreck play area, complete with mini slides, a crow’s nest, and a barrel of laughs that dispenses a drenching downpour.  A 12-person spa pool provides relaxation after a long day on the high seas, as do tropical drinks from the nearby Banana Cabana pool bar.


There are also five leisure pools - one in each village. These pools offer escape for the less boisterous buccaneers of your crew. Take a plunge and cool down, or simply lounge the day away on deck while catching some golden rays.


Recreation:
This resort offers movies under the stars, campfire activities, adventure cruises, fishing, jogging trails, volleyball, and bike rentals. The resort guide provided to you upon check in will have the schedule of all events during your stay.


Dining:
Discover a treasure trove of leisurely feasts and grab-and-go bites at the newly reimagined Old Port Royale. This convenient “port of entry” is filled with new places to gather, dine and relax and includes both sit-down and quick-service options, as well as an outdoor lounge, poolside bar, and market. 


Sebastian’s Bistro, the newly opened sit down restaurant, serves mouthwatering meals with a tropical vibe. Make it a lighter meal with salads, sandwiches, and burgers or fill up on steak and seafood entrees. 


Centertown Market is where you’ll want to drop by for delicious quick-service meals amidst an authentic street market setting. Centertown Market also offers a casual Grab & Go market with quick and easy salads, sandwiches, bakery items, snacks, coffee, smoothies, and a variety of bottled beverages. 


Banana Cabana, near the featured pool, offers cold beverages and a tropical bar when you need some rest from the sun.


Spyglass Grill offers a casual-cool menu featuring American fare with a Caribbean twist for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


Caribbean Beach also offers Disney Resorts Pizza Delivery.


My Review:

My family loves Disney parks and we also love the Caribbean, so what better way to get both in one trip? We love the island life and with beaches and hammocks throughout the resort, you will feel like you left the busy parks and went straight to the Caribbean to relax. This property is large and has an internal bus system, so no matter where you stay, it’s not a long walk to a bus stop. We love having the choice of a relaxing pool close to our room or a large pool with water slides and other activities. We enjoy the Moderate resorts because of the dining options and price. They also seem to be quieter and more relaxing, just like the Caribbean.
