    Planning a WDW vacation at the end of September and have reservations for the CBR. I am wanting to know what set of buildings is closest to the food court, transporation, and is beach front. Trinidad, Martinique, or another set of buildings?

    Hi Rachel!

         I have been doing a lot of research of the Caribbean Beach Resort (CBR) lately, so I have just the answer that you need!  My family and I have stayed here on three separate occasions and it just keeps getting better and better.  The Preferred rooms (which also come at a preferred price!) are found in Trinidad North and in Martinique.  These villages flank Old Port Royale, which is where you will find the food court, table service restaraunt, arcade and main pool area.  This pool is absolutely amazing - of all the pools on Disney property, it is my favorite!

         Just across the water, you will find the villages of Aruba and Jamaica, which are the closest standard rooms to Old Port Royale.  The closest rooms can be found in Buildings 44-46 in Aruba or 51-51 in Jamaica.  The great news is that there is a bus stop in every village and there is even an internal bus which can take you anywhere in this particular resort!

         Furthest away, but by far the coolest rooms on property, are the Pirate themed rooms in Trinidad South.  These also come at an additional cost, but the attention to detail is fabulous!  However, they are about a 15 minute walk to the main area.  This village, along with all of the others, have their own white sand beach.  I forgot to mention that each village also has its own heated pool - talk about convenience!  If you would like to view pictures of this resort, or even check out the map yourself, simply visit  Have a great trip!

    Much pixie dust,
