Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort brings the easygoing vibe of the Caribbean to the Walt Disney World Resort. At this Moderate Resort, guests will enjoy vibrant colors and lush landscapes, all while Calypso music plays in the background. This relaxing paradise has 5 building areas, referred to as villages, and each village is themed after a different Caribbean island: Barbados, Jamaica, Martinique, Trinidad and Aruba. Old Port Royale is the resort's "port of entry" and is where you'll find the check-in desk, lobby concierge, and bell services. It's also the home to Calypso Trading Post, the resort's gift shop, and Centertown Market, the resort's main quick service option and a Grab & Go market.  In addition to Centertown Market, Old Port Royale is also where you'll find the resort's table service restaurant, Sebastian's Bistro. The restaurant offers casual dining with family style dishes featuring Latin and Caribbean flavors. Sebastian
