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. ++

I would definitely come back to this resort in the future. It is a big step ahead of Art of animation and pop century which is where we used to stay. Thanks Disney Read less

We chose Disney Caribbean Beach Resort because of the location & price (kind of in the middle & still a moderate resort)... And we were not disappointed! The ambiance of the resort the moment you walk in is extremely welcoming. The lobby is spacious & bright with lots of room for weary travelers to relax during the check-in process. And the scent of a tropical paradise immediately whisks you away to an island escape (my husband is now officially on the hunt for a room freshener that is similar for our own home)! I requested a room in the Martinique building because of the close proximity to Old Port Royale, but we received a room in Barbados which worked out even better! We were close to Old Port Royale & the main bus stop so we didn't have to walk very far to wait for the resort shuttles. Our preferred room slept our family of four very comfortably, with lots of space for us to manuever around without feeling cramped. Centertown Market has great food choices... I'm offically obsessed with the Yuca & plantain chips, which should be sold by the bag! It was great to try different flavors from the Caribbean! All of the staff at the resort are helpful, welcoming and friendly as well! Lots of smiles and several of them even took a few minutes to chat with us while we moseyed around. Thank you everyone at Disney Caribbean Beach Resort for making our first time a memorable experience & for helping us celebrate our daughter's birthday in the most magical way possible! Read less

We stayed for 3 weeks in March-April this year. This was our second time staying at the Caribbean Beach resort. We had a pirate room which my young girls loved, however I would not pay extra for it again. One thing I would like to see changed would be for the shower to also have a handheld shower head as it made washing my daughters hair a nightmare! I ended up going out to buy a jug, which just made bath time take even longer. We had no issues with the walking to the Old Port Royale area (I saw it as an opportunity to max my daily steps) Despite be offered to opt out of housekeeping we declined as being on holiday I didn’t want to be cleaning the room myself! There were several days that I had to call housekeeping to ensure our room was cleaned after returning back early evening to find the room unmade. We did hire a car, as the few times we used the buses it was a pita with buggy’s/strollers and no seats available, so bar Magic Kingdom we drove to all parks. My Girls (5 & almost 3) loved the resort, they loved spotting the geckos, and the wildlife we were even lucky enough to see a turtle in the lake. Spyglass grill was great and obviously really convenient to our room. Although we did find the fries to be very over salted. Overall the food at the resort was good, but after 3 weeks was getting a bit boring! especially as we were room bound for a week of our stay as our youngest daughter came down with Chicken Pox. The Wi-Fi, was very poor some days it was slower than old dial up! which with a 3 week holiday I need to do some work whilst there and had to resort to using mobile data hotspots which on a UK mobile was not cheap! Nearly all cast members we met were amazing and my girls loved being greeted as princesses even when not in costume. But overall we loved it and as we basically lost a week we have already booked to go back next year. Read less

My family and I are Passholders and stay on Disney property a lot. We stayed from Deluxe to value. I have always loved their resorts. We came here this trip for my daughter’s sweet 16. My first problem was roaches in our room. Not love bugs as the CM argued with me about. Those were everywhere too but very different than a roach. There were everywhere in our room and kept coming out of the sinks. Second, housekeeping came at 6 the first night and only made up beds left towels. The room was dirty when we came in. Hair in the tub and dirt all over the floor. Never was cleaned. Third day came when we where getting dry from the storm and they wouldn’t come back when we were done. Three different people came with in 5 minutes of each other. I hate giving Disney a bad review but this resort shouldn’t be on their property. We are heading back in July to Wilderness and plan to never return to this resort. Read less
