Caribbean Beach Resort
Disney's 2,112-room Caribbean Beach Resort gives Walt Disney World guests
an island-vacation experience in moderately priced accommodations.
Located on 200 lushly landscaped acres near Epcot, the tropically themed,
brightly colored resort's "island" villages surround a beautiful 42-acre
tropical lake. Five villages, made up of clusters of two-story buildings,
are themed in Caribbean styles -- Trinidad, Martinique, Barbados, Aruba,
Jamaica -- that blend cool pastel walls, white-wood railings and vividly
colored metal roofs.
Each building contains 64 guestrooms. A typical 314-square-foot room
has two double beds and accommodates four. Guestrooms include mini bars
and coffee makers. Individual villages have their own swimming pools,
white-sand beaches and laundry facilities.
Guests check in at the islands-styled Custom House. Roadways winding
through the expansive, palm tree-lined resort connect the villages. Caribbean
Beach guests are linked to each other and to the rest of the Vacation
Kingdom by the Disney transportation system.
Old Port Royale, architectural focal point in the center of the resort,
has the feel of a Caribbean village. Stone walls, pirates' cannons and
tropical birds and flowers lend to the island theming. Here guests find
the resort's shops, game room, lounge, food court, restaurant and entertainment
in a festive, islands streetscape setting.
Footbridges over the lake connect the "mainland" with the one-acre Parrot
Cay island play area for children and walkways which afford scenic lake
views during leisurely strolls or a bike ride.
