Not only have Disney managed to bring the ambience of the Caribbean to Florida, they've brought the beaches too! This resort is split into 6 Caribbean islands, each with its own pool and stretch of white sandy beach. Whilst mums and dads soak up the sun, the kids can climb, slide and play to their hearts content at Caribbean Cay, a small island complete with picnic tables, a nature trail, hammocks and a playground. There are also playgrounds on the beaches of Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad, ensuring everyone is kept happy! Colonial-style buildings and swaying palm trees add to the vibe, as do lush gardens and the distant sound of steel drums. There are bikes for hire, nature trails, a lively shopping bazaar, food court and table-service dining - making this the perfect all-round family destination.

I stayed a week at the resort for a conference. I decided to stay at this resort due to price, and opportunity to scout a Disney resort I hadn't been to, before I bring the family out. I don't... Read more think we'll be staying here. Like many other Disney resorts, they now use the wristbands for doorkeys and room charges. Mine didn't fit, so I had to put this big band in my pocket. I requested a room close to any parking lot, so I was placed in the very back of the resort. Made for a long walk for dinner (though I usually just took the rental car up to where the food court is). The rooms are average disney rooms. Worn from overuse, small, and few amenities. You get a fridge, but no microwave, a nice bathroom, but tiny, minimal storage, and a generally less than clean feeling. No desk, just a small table. I did note the internet was exceptional. I had a pirate themed room, which was appropriate b/c the mattresses were little more than planks with fabric over them. They are literally only 2-3 inch thick pads on top of a wood support structure. Truly hard and uncomfortable. Did discover blood on the furniture. Not surprising since it sticks out so far, and is very hard and obtrusive. On my first day, someone else's luggage was waiting in my room. Fortunately, based on my previous experiences with Disney's magical express I didn't use it and don't trust it with my luggage. I rented a car, which is the best way to go. FYI, you'll have to show your ID or wristband (which doesn't fit men) each time you return in your vehicle. After waiting a half hour to take a bus, I ended up taking my rental car to Downtown disney. Theme was sad. A beachy resort by a swamp... Didn't quite work for me. The food court was chaos. Though the food options were okay. I paid only 140 (no didn't get a conference deal). Those that paid more, should file charges against disney for theft/robbery. Suffice it to say, I will not likely return (unless cheap enough) and won't be bringing the family. Read less
We have just come back from a fantastic 2 week break staying at the Caribbean Beach Orlando.The rooms were roomy and were cleaned and clean towels left every day.The main swimming pool can get busy... Read more but each area has its own small pool which my kids actually prefered.We stayed in Aruaba ,each area in the resort has its own bus stop which the Disney bus for each park(Hollywood Studio,Magic Kingdom etc) will stop on a regular basis from about 8am till late.It wasn't very far to any of the parks and at each park your resort had its own bus stop number so it was very easy once you left the park to get back to hotel.Would highly recommend staying here .

Hello, This is my 7th time staying at this hotel and first review I have ever written on it. We can start with the PROS: It's close to Epcot and Hollywood Studios parks, it has a great pool area... Read more , the location is very pleasing to the eye, my dad loves the caribbean feel it gives. CONS: It's a big resort so once you do get a bus you spend almost 15 more mins picking everyone else up. There is a lot walking to place to place. The food is hit or miss. DON"T ORDER THE SPAGHETTI for the kids.... Yucky. We even told the manager about this. Hopefully they can make it taste better for the kids. The decor hasn't been updated in 7 years... Same old same old. Overall, It's familiar to our family. It's a good place for the cost in relationship to Epcot. That's the park we visit the most. Read less
We visited Disney World for the first time and stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort. Our stay was for 6 days and we booked thru Disney.com. The grounds, pool area(s) and overall outside ambiance of... Read more the Resort is very nice. Everything on the outside was clean and every staff member we encountered was extremely polite......but our opinion of the resort changed as soon as we opened the door to the room. The rooms are extremely small (not even sure what size the "queen" beds really are as my wife and I (whom are both below average in size) could barely fit on them comfortably. The toilet and shower space is smaller than what we have in our motorhome and our shower head sprayed water every where but on you. When using the bathroom with door closed, it was very cramped to say the least. The room also had a mildew smell we could not get rid of and the furnishings were very dated. The interior of the rooms reminded us of a 2-star motel you would experience on the side of the interstate and at over $200 a night, you would expect more. And don't pack microwave popcorn for snacks as your $200 dollar a night room is not equipped with a microwave. I would not recommend this resort to anyone unless your actual room is not important to you, its a shame because the grounds and actual public resort areas are very nice. Read less
Just got back from staying at this fantastic hotel . I took my 3 children on my own . We stayed in the Martinique part of the hotel . We were a couple of minutes walk to Old Port Royale and the main... Read more swimming pool . We had a ball . As my husband stayed at home I was quite apprehensive , but I needn't have been . I felt so safe and everyone was friendly and helpful . The hotel was very clean , maid service everyday , the rooms were a little dated but that didn't bother us . We slept comfortably every night . I would definitely return . The Disney transportation system was a dream , we never had to wait long for bus to take us to the park of our choice . All in all a very enjoyable experience with plenty of fun and laughter . Read less
