Only the Pirate Themed Rooms at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will remain the same, accommodating 4 guests with two double beds. This is one of the larger resorts at Walt Disney World, but also holds fantastic theming and a lot of charm. Today we are going to answer some Frequently Asked Questions about Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
What area of Walt Disney Word is the Caribbean Beach Resort located? Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is located in the Epcot area. In fact, it is right across from Disney’s Beach Club Resort. I did not know this until our stay at the Beach Club. When you exit the Beach Club Resort, the entrance to Caribbean Beach is right across the street! So if you are looking for a resort close to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Caribbean Beach is a great choice.
What is the theming of Caribbean Beach? Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is themed after the beautiful islands in the Caribbean. Aruba, Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, and Martinique. It is broken down into six villages, all with their own unique theme. Each village has laundry facilities, pools, beaches, and some have playgrounds.
What is the best village to request at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort? At Disney’s Caribbean Beach, if you want to be close to Old Port Royale, which is where the main pool and dining is, you will want to book a preferred room. These are in Martinique, Trinidad North, Jamaica, and Aruba. Pirate Themed Rooms are not in the preferred category. They are located in Trinidad South, which is as far as you can get from the Old Port Royale area. Don’t let that stop you from booking a Pirate themed room!
What is the Pirate Cruise? The Pirate Cruise departs from Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort’s Barefoot Bay on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays. It is for children only~no adults. Children ages 4-12 are allowed to participate, and reservations are suggested. It departs at 9:30 and returns at 11:30 AM. Lunch is provided as you embark on your pirate cruise!
How can I get the most out of my stay at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort? First, make a building request at your online check in day.
