Resort Spotlight- Caribbean Beach Resort

Take a Caribbean vacation while at Disney World! This charming resort will put you on a tropical island complete with white sand beaches. There are 33 two story buildings which house all 2112 guest rooms. The “Villages” of buildings bearing Caribbean inspired names such as Trinidad North and South,  Barbados, Jamaica, Aruba, and Martinique, are situated around the shores of the 45 acre Barefoot Bay.  Each village has its own beach (You can enjoy the sand and the view but cannot swim!), pool, laundry, bus stop, playground, and hammocks.

Old Port Royale is the activity hub of the resort housing all the dining, shopping, arcade, Barefoot Bay Marina and Bike Works for recreation rentals, and is home to the largest pool at the resort. Some resort rooms are quite a distance to this area so if you want to be close by to food and recreation you may consider paying for a preferred room.

The Custom House is the main entrance and guest check in. You will also find magical express and airline check in here.
