    With the closing of the store at Caribbean Beach, will I still be able to buy items in the parks and have them shipped back to the resort?

    Hi, Jeremy! Thank you so much for bringing this great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I know that it can be worrisome to be staying at a spot undergoing significant refurbishments, but I have done plenty of research and spoken to many Cast Members and Guests, and I can assure you that you will have a magical time at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort!

    You are correct that Calypso Trading Post is currently closed, however the “Straw Market” area just outside of it is set-up with a small merchandise area and this is the location where Guests can send their Theme Park purchases to for pick-up so that you don’t have to carry around your 12 foot tall Stitch plush toy all day!

    I am also very impressed with the alternate dining accommodations that this Disney Resort hotel is offering to Guests! There is an all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast and dinner buffet at Centertown Buffet and if you happen to be on the convenient Disney Dining Plan, these buffets only require 1 Quick Service redemption per Guest! This offer is so great that only Guests staying at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort can take advantage! If you aren’t on the Disney Dining Plan, it still is one of the best values in terms of Disney Dining, in my opinion! There are also a number of Food Trucks with other Quick Service and Snack offerings, as well as 3 Island Markets throughout your Disney Resort hotel. 

    I hope my answer eases your concerns and that you can now “shop ‘til you drop” without having to worry about bringing your purchases back on a bus! Have a magical vacation,
