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. ++

The location is fantastic with the new Sky Liner running from the Caribbean to either Epcot or Disney Studios. It was so easy and fun riding in the gondola. Check in took almost 45 minutes with only two employees available to serve a long line of guests. The resort itself is beautiful, boasting of numerous pools, relaxing sandy beach, kiddie area, and walking paths for pause and reflection. A gift shop, snack bar, and restaurants offer a place for enjoyment after a long hard day in the parks. Our room was very small, but the bathroom was a good size. The beds were comfortable, but the room lacked the Disney decor we were expecting. Laundry facilities were close and cost $3.00 for the washer and $3.00 for the dryer. We were disappointed that the sink did not have a stopper, it was difficult to turn off the shower, no luggage carts, and there was no microwave to warm up the baby's food. Being an avid traveler, I feel that Disney could do better concerning the rooms. Maintenance was lacking in the interior, but the landscaping was gorgeous and inviting. Read less

Stayed here previously mid-transformation and enjoyed it, despite the disruption. We could see though that the future looked very bright... Now the transformation is complete the resort is stunning. Old Port Royale is a fantastic addition, so much more convenient having reception walkable from all Islands. The movement of the Skyliner gives energy to the resort and the fact you can hop on it and be in 2 parks in under 10 minutes is amazing. We were in a pirate room, which had to be taken to get free dining. It was showing it’s age a bit and not a patch on the refurbished room we had last year. However, my son loved it, it was very close to the Skyliner, and the Spyglass Grill was very handy. We’d go back here in a heartbeat, and I’d recommend Caribbean Beach to anyone looking for a moderate in Disney World. Read less

We visited disney as a family of 7 this oct/nov 2019 for 14 days. We also stayed in caribbean beach in april 2015. We were situated in trinidad which was about a 7 minute walk from old port royal (the centre of the resort) however we couldnt have had a better area. We were right by the new skyliner station which took us to Hollywood studios and epcot within minutes. We had a spotlessly clean pool and a small but lovely quick service restaurant right by our room. The restaurant is called spyglass grill and we ate mostly for breakfast there several times. The food was freshly cooked and tasty and the staff (especially steve who was on the till most mornings) were friendly and helpful and you felt that they genuinely want you to have a fantastic time. We also ate in the main center town market a few times and this was also tasty and a good choice available. The resort itself is absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and all needs caterered for. The staff were helpful,friendly and if i am ever lucky enough to go back i will 100% be staying there again. Read less

The resort was lovely nice rooms, clean and great facilities the only problem was the food. It wasn’t just here it was the whole of Disney. We stayed for 2 weeks and had a quick service dining plan which was a big mistake. We did complain to the manager and he offered to pay for a meal in the top resort restaurant which we accepted. The food wasn’t that great there either and we ended up paying $80 for a bottle of wine because the waitress brought us the wrong bottle. Disney was good but the food ruined the holiday and I would never return to Disney because of it. Food is a very important part of a holiday for me and spending 2 weeks eating food I wouldn’t feed to an animal ruined the whole trip. I ordered my son lasagna one day and he got given a £1 ready meal which was absolutely vile. That with burgers that tasted like cardboard and snack vans selling gone off fruit I’m seriously surprised so many people think Disney is great. Read less

We’ve come to Disney World about a dozen times in the past 9 years. This is our first stay at Caribbean Beach. (Previously stayed Animal Kingdom Jambo and Kidani, Boardwalk, Port Orleans, Polynesian, Coronado, and also in Kissimmee). I find the grounds pretty and clean, but staff couldn’t have been in more of a hurry to shoo me away from the desk and answer my questions with curt responses upon checking in (they seemed understaffed) and overly troubled to answer basic questions. Definitely not the “magic” welcoming to presence we have previously received at other resorts. Also, our deciding factor at giving this property a shot was the new Skyliner stop. After a hurried check in, then a ride to Epcot for dinner, I walked my five year old thru the whole World Showcase to the Skyliner stop for a ride back to the resort at 9:30pm. The Skyliners were closed, despite assurances they would run til 10:30pm. So, we then hoofed it up to Boardwalk to get a shuttle to Caribbean Beach and I think it was seriously a 45 minute to 1 hour ride! Three hotels and many many stops. No Disney Magic yet this trip! We may try to switch to Coronado if doable for the duration. Read less
