Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

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 five Caribbean islands, each with its own pool and stretch of white sandy beach. 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, jogging trails, a lively shopping bazaar, food court and table-service dining - making this the perfect all-round family destination.
++ Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is undergoing refurbishment projects until further notice. Please refer to the additional information section below for more details. ++

My family and I stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort at the end of August 2019. We had done the online check-in and while waiting for our Magical Express bus, I got a notification that our rooms were ready. It took about 75 minutes to get to our hotel, as the bus had to stop off at 3 other resorts plus deal with a heavy Florida rain shower. (Being our 3rd trip to WDW as a family, we knew that the time between airport to hotel might be longer than anticipated) When we finally arrived, I was impressed by the lobby. It was very clean, easy to navigate and smelled sooooooo good. We walked to our rooms, which was over in the Martinique Village and discovered that my husband's and my luggage had already been delivered. (unlike my sister, nephew and mother). We quickly unpacked and headed to the park. Pros: VERY friendly staff and it seemed that everyone took pride in their work. My mother had lost her wrist band in her travels at the airport and Carrie (Cassie maybe?) at the front desk was able to easily replace it. She was very sweet and quickly set my mother's fears aside. Pool area is very nice with lots of lounge chairs and I loved the Banana Cabana! Kathy, the bartender, is AWESOME! Rooms were very clean, comfortable and easy to access with your magic band or MyDisney App. My mother needed distilled water for her C-pap machine and we were able to get that ordered to her room that next day (it was 9:30 pm before she realized she needed some). Prices were reasonable at breakfast and gift shop was convenient for bottles of water, trinkets and picking up your merchandise from the park. Cons: Everyone has made mention of this before but the buses are sometimes late or not on schedule. I think the longest we had to wait was maybe 30 minutes for Typhoon Lagoon. That was fine as we weren't a rush to get there. But the MyDisney App really helped plan the time we had to leave our room to catch the bus to the park. You can do the "Minnie" vans via Lyft or you can do Uber (which we had done for dinner reservations at the Polynesian Resort). The grounds are lovely, the staff is wonderful and if you have some patience on your vacation, this is the perfect resort for you and your family. Read less

We stayed here as a family of four on our 1st trip to Disney this July/August. Check in was simple and quick and we were soon our our way to Trinidad. A good 10 min walk away. We’d asked for a ground floor corner room and this was exactly what we got. We were in a pirate themed room which was cool. We were very near to spyglass grill, which was handy for breakfast early before getting the bus to one of the parks. If getting an early bus, you’re better going to the main Port Royale bus stops than the individual village stops. As the buses always arrive at the smaller ones full. We opted out of housekeeping and kept the room clean ourselves. We still got fresh towels and linen when we requested them. The pools were good and we’ve never seen pools full at 11pm at night, like they are here. Would definitely recommend this resort, even though we only really used it as a sleeping base. Read less

I was a little disappointed that it didn't have any Disney Magic like the budget hotel Art of Animation, food was very repetitive compared to the AOA, it was ok for what we needed, it was clean and tidy, staff were lovely

From start to finish the hotel was amazing! The decor, layout, rooms, food, staff, facilities, location, organisation was all great. We were welcomed on arrival with badges due to our recent engagement which was a nice touch. Waking up every morning and putting the TV on to the Walt Disney Day guide was nice, it meant more than you may think just having that to play whilst you get ready. The quick service dining plan was great! The amount of food that you have along with the amount of choice is surprising. I would very much recommend a dining plan! The Disney transport wasn’t always on time (but always arrived) but this a a minor fault in a fantastic place to be. We would definitely return to this hotel, we WILL definitely return to Disney. I love this place! Oh and if you like a cocktail try the Kracken Punch! Sabastians Bistro food was amazing, the curried goat was a fave! All in all, just take me back...please? Read less
