Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort Disney World opened in 1988 in the Epcot area near the Typhoon Lagoon Water Park . The resort is moderately priced and operated by Walt Disney parks and resorts.
Lucky guests of the Caribbean themed resort stay in one of the many small building located around Barefoot Bay. The rooms are small yet laid out well for families and are done up with Caribbean flair some with ship shaped beds.
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort Villages
The resort is grouped in to six villages named after 6 islands of the Caribbean, Aruba, Martinique, Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad south and Trinidad north. Each village is complete with playground and pool. A bus runs threw threw out the lovely resort so guests can have easy access to all the village.
In the center of the resort you will find Old Port Royale that features Goombay games Arcade complete with many pinball and video games as well as 2 gift shops and a food court.
Disney World Caribbean Beach resort caters to water lovers as well as land sport enthusiast. For water sports you can go to the marina on the 45 acre lake and rent speed boats , watercraft of all kinds and paddle boats. Land lovers can relax in a hammock or get involved in the many activities such as bike rentals, volleyball or the jogging trail.
If your kids are like mine there must be a pool with waterslides. Turn your kids loose at the Old Port Royale pool where the kids can have a blast shooting each other with water cannons, and enjoying the water fall and many water slides. if your kids are younger you can take them to the play ground located on the beaches of the Jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados villages.
Food is so important to a good family vacation and Disney delivers with a large variety of restaurants from fast food to sit down dinning all cooked up Caribbean resort Disney style.
The Old Port Royale Food court resembles a old Caribbean port complete with hanging lanterns , cobble stone streets and a beautiful man made sky. With six restaurants to serve you can eat many fast food delights such as Hamburgers, pizza and pastas. For a full sit down meal there’s Shutters at Old Port Royal serving the Caribbean’s best and American influenced dishes. For adults that like to enjoy a taste cocktail with their vacation you have the Banana Cabana pool bar serving up tropical alcoholic concoctions as well as snacks.
If you have not been to Disney World before i would put it on your bucket list of family vacations. A great way to go would be to stay at the Disney’s Caribbean resort and enjoy the Caribbean theme, waterslides and beaches and take day trips to Disney world and Epcot center. In my opinion just staying at the Disney Caribbean resort might get a bit stale after a few days unless you are traveling with a infant or toddler. With world events being what they are it’s nice to find a great family vacation right here in the USA.
