Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
Spacious, colorful resort filled with Disney magic and nature's beauty.
On the banks of Barefoot Bay lies Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, a colorful village of quaint florescent buildings and lush greenery. Considered a moderate resort like Port Orleans or Coronado Springs, the Caribbean Beach offers a comfortable, themed environment at a more reasonable price than deluxe hotels like the BoardWalk Inn. The resort consists of six villages named after Caribbean islands. Each village offers nearly identical room amenities, with two double beds (some king rooms are available) and a reasonable amount of space. Like most Disney hotels, the bathroom sink area is separate from the shower/toilet. Something to consider is that room distance from Old Port Royale (home to dining options and the theme pool) differs, with some being a ten- to fifteen-minute walk away. Kids, particularly those who love Pirates of the Caribbean, will adore the pirate fortress pool complete with water cannons and a slide. This can get crowded, so sunbathers should consider one of the smaller village pools or the sandy beaches that encircle Barefoot Bay. Food options are casual, featuring sit-down service at Shutter’s (American cuisine with a Caribbean twist) and a food court that offers traditional fare like pizza, burgers, deli sandwiches, etc. Although close to Epcot and MGM Studios, all transportation to Disney attractions is handled by buses that stop at each village.
