8 Reasons You’ll Love Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

Caribbean Beach Resort at Walt Disney World is in the moderate resort category and is located in the EPCOT Resort Area. The resort itself offers quick access to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, Disney’s BoardWalk, Disney Springs, and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Caribbean Beach provides the relaxing and beautiful theming of the Caribbean islands. Here are eight reasons why you will love Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.


1 – Theming

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is broken up into different “villages” each with its own architecture and colors. They include Trinidad North, Trinidad South, Martinique, Barbados, Aruba, and Jamaica. Each village has its private, quiet pool, laundry facilities, bus stop, and beaches. Trinidad North and South, Barbados, and Jamaica also each have a playground area as well. All of the shopping and dining locations are located at Old Port Royale. Old Port Royale is themed to look like a Caribbean port market, head from “shop” to “shop” with the blue sky, and lantern lighting above you. You will feel as if you have stepped inside a Caribbean marketplace.

2 – A Disney Skyliner Resort

The Disney Skyliner soars along waterways and wooded areas alike on its way to theme parks and Disney resort hotels, making it a fantastic complimentary transportation option. Caribbean Beach resort guests have quick-and-easy transportation to a world of other dining and entertainment options. These include all the fun of Disney’s BoardWalk entertainment district, access to Epcot through the International Gateway station, easy access to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and restaurants and recreation found at the resort hotels serviced by Disney Skyliner. The station at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort connects all three Skyliner routes and extends the architectural details and bright island colors associated with the Caribbean. It’s not only a convenient transportation option, but a lot of fun!

3 – Pirate Themed Rooms

The Pirate-themed rooms at Caribbean Beach are perfect for any Pirates of the Caribbean fans. These unique rooms are located in Trinidad South and are fantastically themed. The beds look like pirate ships, while the dresser appears to be old crates. Be sure to look around the room for all the special pirate touches!  These rooms will cost more than a non-pirate room, but it is worth the cost for a special trip!

4 – Internal Resort Shuttle

Caribbean Beach is one of the largest resorts on Disney property. This resort offers an internal resort shuttle that stops at each village, the Custom House, and Old Port Royale. While you can certainly walk, it is nice to hop on the bus instead of walking across the resort to get to food court or main pool. As with any Disney resort, transportation to Disney theme parks and Disney Springs is also available from the same stops as the internal shuttle.


5 – Fuentes del Morro Pool

The feature pool, Fuentes del Morro Pool is one of the best pools in the moderate resort category. The zero-entry pool features shooting water cannons and not one, but two waterslides! There is also a wading pool with an aqua play area shaped like a pirate ship. It is the perfect place for your little ones with squirt hoses, kiddie slides, and a bucket that dumps water from high above.  The area also has two Jacuzzi spas for the adults to enjoy. Guests can also enjoy several quiet pools throughout the resort if they are looking for a location with less action.

6 – Beaches

Caribbean Beach Resort is situated around a 45-acre lake known as Barefoot Bay. Each of the villages has a beach area along Barefoot Bay. Swimming is not permitted in Barefoot Bay, but you will find volleyball courts, hammocks, or lounge chairs to relax in. The hammocks are a great place to relax after a long day at the theme parks!

7 – Great Recreational Activities

Be sure to pick up a resort recreation schedule at check-in to find out about all the great recreational activities offered at the resort. Each day there are poolside events hosted by the children’s activities staff and campfires are held nightly during peak seasons and several times a week during non-peak seasons. Be sure to check your recreation schedule for a weekly list of “Movies Under the Stars” held each night at the resort. For a fee, guests can also rent bikes and surrey bikes to pedal around the beautiful resort property.

8 – Children’s Pirate Cruise Adventure

Editor’s Note: At this time, boat cruises have been temporarily suspended.

This adventure is a children-only activity for ages 4 to 12 that is held a few days each week. Children will board a boat with two Cast Members to set sail on their pirate adventure.

If you are looking for a great moderate resort with great theming, activities, and amenities, look no further than Disney’s Caribbean Beach. Lovers of land and sea will find refuge at this Caribbean-themed resort, whether it be sliding down one of its two water slides or relaxing in a beachside hammock.
