Overview of the Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort in Orlando
Palm trees swaying in the tropical breeze and the feel of the islands make up the Disney’s Caribbean Resort. Take your pick from the 6 separate villages from, Aruba, Barbados, Jamaica, Martinique and Trinidad North and South. Each has its own colorful guest houses and a slightly different island flare. All of the Villages have a white, sandy beach to give you that extra, special feeling of actually staying at one of the islands. Since the Resort is so large, there are also multiple Disney Bus Transportation hubs around the entire property. No matter where you are staying, it is only a short walk to get to your transportation. The Disney World Caribbean Resort is also right across the street from Epcot.
The feeling of staying in a tropical paradise doesn’t end with the outdoor amenities. Each of the rooms are designed to give you the sense of staying in your own island getaway. Guestrooms come with either two (2) queen beds or a single King Bed. The King rooms sleep up to two (2) guests while the double queen rooms can accommodate up to five (5) with the additional pull down bed along the wall. If a pirate adventure is what you are looking for, a special room with pirate ship beds and a rustic nautical design is something to look in to. The pirate rooms all have two (2) queen beds and sleep up to four (4). A mini-fridge and coffee maker await your arrival and WiFi is included throughout the Caribbean Beach Resort.
Things to do
The Disney Caribbean Resort might be a Moderate themed property, but having over 200 acres of lush grounds, it most certainly has a lot for you to do. Check out the main pool, Fuentes del Morro. Designed to look like an old Spanish Fort, this pool is the largest at the resort and has 2 large water slides. For the smaller ones, in the same area you will find a kids splash park with zero entry access, a large water dumping bucket and a couple of smaller slides. Each of the Villages have their own private, much quieter pool. The main pool has its own towels while the village pools, you need to bring your own from the room. And the list goes on with activities like, bike rentals, sand volleyball, a playground, jogging trail and even a Pirate adventure cruise.

Disney World Caribbean Beach Resort Reviews
It is really worth getting to know a little about the Caribbean Resort at Disney World before booking. An over 70% above average rate is not bad and most guests really like the laid back tropical feel and really like the white sand beaches. The main pool is perfect for families with 2 larger water slides and a kids splash area with 2 smaller slides. The pirate theme was a nice feature and pirate cruise might be something to consider. The food, for the most part is acceptable to most of the guests.
While many like the resort, some think it is just an older Disney Resort. Keep in mind that Disney does a good job of updating and they are always renovating. Many of the guests do not like how large the Resort is. The biggest complaint is probably the bus transportation because there are multiple stops and sometimes the buses will fill up before they get to you.
