Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is a large Caribbean-themed Moderate resort located at Walt Disney World around Barefoot Bay. Guests are welcomed to the resort at Old Port Royale, which is the central area of the property. The resort also has the five room sections of Barbados, Martinique, Aruba, Jamaica, and Trinidad, referred to as “Islands” by resort Cast Members. All islands are accessible from Old Port Royale by pathway, however an internal resort shuttle bus is also available. 

Old Port Royale contains the resort Front Desk/Guest Services, Centertown Market food court, Sebastian’s Bistro table service restaurant, Calypso Trading Post shop, Banana Cabana bar, and the feature pool – Fuentes del Morro. All of Old Port Royale is accessible by wheelchair, as all areas are step-free or have a ramp, and accessible restrooms are available in both the lobby area and the Centertown Market.

The Fuentes del Morro feature pool is themed like an ancient fort in the Caribbean, has a zero-step entry side as well as an ADA pool lift, and hot tubs with ADA lifts. This is where a lot of the recreational activities take place at the resort. Each Island also has a quiet pool with ADA lift.

Bus transportation is provided to all of the Disney theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs via bus stops located at each section of the resort, with the furthest park being approximately 15 minutes away. All buses have wheelchair ramps, and each bus stop on property has a wheelchair area so that the bus driver can prioritize wheelchair loading. Starting towards the end of 2019, transportation to Epcot and Hollywood Studios will also be available using the Disney Skyliner gondolas. 

Disney’s Magical Express provides complimentary transportation to and from Orlando International Airport, which is approximately 30-45 minutes away. Accessible motorcoaches are available at request when making your Magical Express reservation.

Important note: Each room building of the resort has two floors, with the second floor only being accessible by staircase. All wheelchair accessible rooms are located on the first floor, so there should be no problems in that regard, but if you don’t book in a wheelchair accessible room, be sure to request first floor if you can’t traverse stairs.

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is a nice place to stay, with fun amenities, good food, and pleasant Cast Members. The Old Port Royale area is nicely designed, and the Fuentes del Morro feature pool is fun with lots of activities throughout the day! The food from all three locations on property – Centertown Marketplace, Spyglass Grill, and Sebastian’s Bistro – is delicious, and a short bus ride can get you to a number of other locations with great dining options as well. Overall accessibility is pretty good, as all common areas are step-free or accessible by ramp, though note that guestroom buildings have two levels, and you must be on the first level if you can’t traverse stairs (No elevators). Luckily, all wheelchair accessible rooms are on the first floor. Also keep in mind that the property is spread out, and it can take a while to get from one side to the other, particularly when going over the bridge, meaning one could possibly get tired after so much travel if they aren’t used to it (I did!). However, there are accessible internal buses, and even an ADA van, should you need assistance getting around property.
