Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is set on the beautiful white-sand beaches of 45-acre Barefoot Bay lake. Feel like you have sailed away to the inviting Caribbean, where lazy days are devoted to sun and sand, swaying palm trees and island foods. The guest rooms are arranged into six villages that are spread out over 200 landscaped acres. Each village has 2-story buildings that are clustered around their own swimming pool.
The Resort’s Main Lobby, including Registration and Guest Services, is located inside the Custom House, a charming tropical pavilion designed to resemble the reception area of an exotic Caribbean retreat. The Custom House is physically separated from many of the Resort villages, and it may be some distance from your room. If you do not have an automobile, a shuttle is available to take you to your room. The hub of the Resort is Old Port Royale, where you will find shopping, the food court and the Concierge desk. The feature pool is also located at Old Port Royale. If you choose to book a Preferred room it will put you in a location right next to Old Port Royale. The Pirate Rooms here at the resort are a big hit! These unique rooms feature pirate-ship beds (double beds), buccaneer accessories and swashbuckling decor. These rooms are located next to the Preferred rooms. There are six bus stops located around this resort. If you choose a Standard room you can always hop on a bus to get around to Old Port Royale. This is one resort that we do highly recommend upgrading to either a Preferred room or a Pirate room for a better location. Regular rooms have two queen beds or one king-size bed, and some rooms have the capability of sleeping a 5th person with a fold down bed in the armoire.
There are plenty of activities to stay busy at the resort. A marina rents a variety of watercraft—from sailboats and pontoon boats to a canoe for two. There are landscaped paths to walk, bikes to ride or just soak up some fun at the sprawling pool complex themed like an old Spanish fortress—complete with towers, antique cannons and two waterslides. The main pool has a zero-entry end to it which is nice for the little ones. A cute children’s water play area resembling a pirate ship is located right next to the feature pool and is completely fenced in. Children must be less than 48 inches to play inside the fence.
