Special Offers Available to Caribbean Beach Resort Guests

The Walt Disney World Resort recently announced that exciting changes will be made at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, beginning with a reimagining of the resort that will add even more amenities to the centralized dining and shopping marketplace.
Starting from this May, several Guest offerings will be unavailable at Centertown/Old Port Royale. As a result, Guests with upcoming reservations at this resort will be able to take advantage of special offers and enjoy alternative food & beverage options.

Guests staying at Caribbean Beach Resort during the refurbishment will receive a $75 Disney Gift Card, per night, per room, which will be delivered upon check-in and may be used at participating Walt Disney World Resort Food & Beverage and Merchandise locations. For terms and conditions visit DisneyGiftCard.com.

During the refurbishment work, a variety of dining options will be available at the resort. This includes a Caribbean-style buffet for breakfast, a la carte offerings for dinner, a selection of grab-and-go meals throughout the day, and in-room dining. A new quick service location will open near Trinidad Island this summer, featuring a walk-up quick service window as well as Guest services assistance in the evenings.

Will recreation be impacted?

  1. Yeah... No thanks. Best to stay elsewhere. No pool bar open for the adults at all. Very few real dining options. If you stay here for the discounts, plan on eating lunch and dinner at the parks instead.

    With that said, will be awesome once the work is done, especially if the gondola rumors are true.

  2. I'm always amazed that so many posts, here and on other sites, seem to be so negative. :(
