The Disney Caribbean Resort is the largest moderate resort on Disney property. It has over 2,000 rooms all housed in five different villages. Each village represents a different Caribbean Island. The islands represented are Barbados, Jamaica, Martinique, Aruba and Trinidad.Trinidad has two villages, one north and the other south.
The brightly colored villages surround a 45 acre lake called Barefoot Bay. Parrot Cay is the name of the island in the middle of Barefoot Bay. The island has a playground for the children to enjoy and exotic birds that the grown ups might enjoy too. You can cross over to the island on little footbridges.
Each village has its own white sand beach complete with lounge chairs and hammocks. So grab your flip flops, your suntan oil, and change your attitude to that of "no problem, mon".
Near the entrance of the resort you will find the Custom House. The front desk, guest services and the concierge desk are all located here.
As mentioned earlier, each village represents a different Caribbean island. The buildings in each village are painted in bright, cheerful colors that are reminiscent of the buildings in the actual countries that they represent.
The interior of the rooms are decorated in these bright, cheerful colors too. The bedspreads are colorful and the headboards and footboards are white oak. This combination of colors and wood stain give the rooms a comfortable inviting feeling.
Most rooms at the Caribbean Beach resort have two double beds. The bathrooms have a tub/shower area and a separate sink and vanity area. The rooms also have a nightstand, a small table with two chairs, a dresser and a mini refrigerator.
A mini bar of snacks and beverages is provided in your room and stocked daily to replace what has been used. The price of anything that you eat will be added to your resort bill.
Each room also has a coffee maker so you will not have to venture out early each morning to get your coffee fix.
A few rooms for the disasbled and rooms with king size beds are available in limited supply. Be aware that rooms made to accomodate the disabled may only have a handicapped-accessible shower instead of a tub/shower combo.
There aren't any elevators at the Disney Caribbean Resort, so if you are confined to a wheelchair or your mobility is limited you should request a ground level room at the time you make your reservation. Prices for this moderate resort start at $149.00/night and can go up to $240.00/night during the holidays.
The Disney Caribbean Resort has both a sit down casual restaurant called Shutters and a place for quick counter service that is called the Old Port Royale Food Court. Shutters is open in the evenings and offers a hearty menu of steaks, chicken and seafood. The food court has six different counters and offers a variety of food including hamburgers, pizza, pasta and sweet treats. These items are available for lunch and dinner. The usual breakfast foods are available in the mornings.
The Calypso Trading Post and The Calypso Straw Market are the two gift shops at the Caribbean Beach Resort.
An old Spanish fort themed pool is also at Old Port Royale. This is the resort's main pool. Stone walls, cannons and a slide add to the fun and adventure of your swim. If this area is too loud or crowded for you, check out the quiet pools located at each village.
The Disney Caribbean Resort has plenty of other recreational opportunities available too. You can walk or bike around Barefoot Bay or rent a water craft and enjoy the water.
The Disney buses stop throughout the resort and will take you to all of the theme parks, the water parks and to Downtown Disney. Because the resort is so big in and of itself it has an internal bus service. These buses will take you to different locations within the resort.
Caribbean Beach Resort is a Disney moderate resort that allows you to have two vacations in one trip. You may be at Disney but you will also feel like you are in the Caribbean Islands.
