Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
The free spirit of the tropics greets you at the Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s original moderately priced resort. Within easy distance of both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this large and sprawling resort is popular with families.
AMBIENCE AT DISNEY'S CARIBBEAN BEACH RESORT
The bright, sunny colors of the buildings and rooftops are your first sign of the laid-back lifestyle you’ll find at the Caribbean. After you check in at the Customs House, you make your way to one of the six “islands” that encircle 45-acre Barefoot Bay. Lush tropical foliage, hidden courtyards, and white sand beaches are the setting for your lively Caribbean adventure.
RESORT LAYOUT AT DISNEY'S CARIBBEAN BEACH RESORT
The 2,112 rooms are well spread out among the six exotic “islands” of the Caribe—Aruba, Barbados, Martinique, Jamaica, Trinidad North, and Trinidad South. Each island has a cluster of stucco, pitched-roof buildings without elevators that make up the “village centers,” all painted in their own distinctive colors. The rooms in the two-storied buildings have bright colors and oak furnishings. The beds (one king or two doubles) have posts carved into pineapples, the symbol of hospitality. Guest rooms have double sinks in the separate vanity area with under-sink shelves and a privacy curtain, a table and chairs, an armoire with TV, a set of drawers, and a ceiling fan. There are no balconies or patios. Guest rooms here are the largest of all the moderate resorts at 340 sq. ft. Amenities include a coffeemaker, refrigerator, toiletries, housekeeping, limited room service, and voice mail.
DINING AT DISNEY'S CARIBBEAN BEACH RESORT
The Caribbean Beach offers a table-service restaurant, as well as a breezy food court and the ubiquitous pool bar. All are available in Old Port Royale, also called “Center Towne,” housing the eateries, shops, main pool, and marina. The food court’s hours are 6:00 am–11:30 pm. Banana Cabana, a pool bar located at Old Port Royale, offers a variety of snacks, specialty drinks ($9.75+) and beer ($6.00–$8.00) during pool hours. Bluerunner is a limited room delivery service—typical menu items include domestic beer ($6.75), wine ($7.50+ for small bottles), 16” pizza ($13.99–$17.99), and cheesecake ($4.29). Shutters, the table-service restaurant, serves Caribbean-flavored fare for dinner only—see the restaurant’s description on page 255.

The food court is my reason for staying at this resort because the food is varied and doesn't become boring. However, the food court is closed for now for refurbishment. I don't see any mention of that here. I'm hoping that info stays up to date in the Passporter as we are relying on it for our upcoming trip. Because the food court is closed, we have chosen another favorite--Port Orleans Riverside--for this trip. Please let me know where I can find information such as closings and changes. I read the news area but it gave no time line for refurbishment of Caribbean Beach.

RE: Photo Slice for Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
I have looked at booking this resort and it says the rooms have either King or Queen beds. Your note says they are double as does the illustration. I have checked other sites and it does look like they now have queen beds.
