Caribbean Beach Resort

Conveniently located amid Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney Springs lies the lush tropical getaway location of The Caribbean Beach Resort. This moderate priced resort offers all the high quality Disney amenities you would expect at a price that let’s you relax, mon! Clean and comfortable Disney-styled tropical island surroundings gives this resort a laid-back, easy-going atmosphere.

Be transported to a place where soft island breezes past through the colonial styled buildings. Each island complex is bright, airy and colorful with access to a 45-acre lake and sandy beaches. Everything’s cool at the Caribbean Beach Resort.
