    How is the Caribbean beach resort now that it has been remodeled? Ive also been reading that the transportation from there to the parks is really bad. I picked that hotel because the disney agent told me it was great. I'm really worried now! Help!

    Hi Tracy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so glad you reached out to us today. Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort has so many great things to offer, and I think I can help alleviate some of your worries.

    This Resort hotel has always held a special place for me. It's where we spent our first stay with our son when he was very little. I have happy memories of my little guy splashing in the shipwreck play area near the Fuentes del Morro pool. It’s still there, and still a wonderful place for the littles to play.

    We just stayed here again this past November, and I was floored by the gorgeous redesign of Old Port Royale. The reception area welcomes you with calming colors and light wood surfaces, while just outside, the new Sebastian’s Bistro restaurant and Banana Cabana pool bar are lovely places to enjoy a delicious meal or a relaxing drink.

    As for buses, they travel around the property to serve each village, which does add some time to your trip to the Parks. However, I think it's also really convenient to have a stop nearby rather than having to walk to a central bus hub like at other Resort hotels. And the next bus feature in the My Disney Experience app can be a big help! It lets you know when to expect a bus bound for each Park at your stop, so you have plenty of time to leave your room and catch your ride.

    Tracy, I really do love staying at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and I believe you will, too. If I can answer any more questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. I’m happy to help!

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
