    What's the skinny on Caribbean Beach? I know the sky lift to the park is still a way off, but when is the food court and gift shop expected to reopen?

    Greetings, Jill!

    There are certain questions or Disney planning topics where I really wish Madame Leota from the Haunted Mansion would let me borrow her crystal ball. This is one of them! Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort has always been a family favorite. We celebrated our honeymoon and many vacations there including a trip just this last August with my eldest. We had an absolutely lovely visit, but like you, I was so curious to find out what was going on, how it will look and most importantly, when it would be finished. 

    I'm happy to share the answers I received with you. A big "I don't know." No matter how many times I asked around the property, no one was sure when the main construction at Old Port Royale would be over and when my beloved Banana Cabana Pool Bar would be functioning again. I keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for progress announcements almost daily, but I haven't seen much in the way of a timeline. Excitedly enough, they did just share that a new dining option, Spyglass Grill, just recently opened at the resort and it sounds delicious. At this time though, that's the most they've shared. 

    We'll have to keep watching and waiting for now, Jill, but I'm excited because I know when it's all done, the resort will be even more amazing. Have a wonderful vacation and please come see us again if you have any other questions.

    Magical Wishes,
