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's Bistro is located along the Old Port Royale promenade and offers waterfront views while you dine. Looking for a quick bite or drink while at the pool? Banana Cabana is the pool bar and also has a lounge that serves island bar favorites.

Outside Old Port Royale is where you will find the main pool of the resort, Fuentes del Morro pool. The pool is themed like an old Spanish citadel with 2 water lines and water cannons. There's also a shipwreck water play area nearby for younger kids to enjoy. If you're looking for a quieter pool option, each Village has it's own pool that's often less crowded than the feature pool.

Guest rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort embrace the colors of the islands. Most rooms have two Queen Beds but there are some King rooms available as well. If you're a party of 5, there's also rooms available for a 5th sleeper. Those rooms include 2 Queen Beds and 1 Child-Size Pull-Down Bed. The Pull-Down Bed is meant for a child so if you are traveling with all adults, you may want to rethink that room option as the bed may not be comfortable for a taller adult. All of the rooms have two sinks outside the bathroom which is a huge plus when you have multiple people getting ready in the morning. All of the rooms also have a mini-fridge and small coffee maker.

For guests who always dreamed of being a buccaneer, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort also has Pirate-Themed rooms. This unique accommodation features ship-shaped beds and nautical details that transport you to the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. It's important to note that the Pirate rooms have 2 Double Beds. You'll find the Pirate rooms located in the Trinidad Village of the resort. These rooms are the furthest away from Old Port Royale but there is a quick service option, Spyglass Grill*, located near the Trinidad pool area so you do have a food option close by.

If you're looking to visit the Magic Kingdom, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Disney's Blizzard Beach, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, or Disney Springs, you can use Disney's complimentary bus transportation to those locations. Bus stops are located at each village and you can also catch a bus from Old Port Royale. Buses run approximately every 20 minutes and there are also display boards at the bus stops letting you know when to expect the next bus. The My Disney Experience app also displays estimated bus times.
Caribbean Beach is a large resort so you'll also find an internal bus service available. The internal bus service is a great option if you are in a Village far away from Old Port Royale and want to give your feet a break from walking.
We really enjoyed our stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and would absolutely stay here again on a future trip. The access to the Disney Skyliner is a major added benefit to staying at this resort! The resort is in a great location, with comfortable rooms and a moderate price point. It's also a great option for families of 5 who don't want to stay in a suite or upgrade to a Deluxe Resort.
