    Can you tell me how big Caribbean Beach is? I will have a 13 year old and 2 16 years olds when we travel. Want to see if it's worth it to stay there instead of Pop Century. Not worried about price. Thanks.

    Hi Stacey,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's great that you're planning ahead for your stay at Walt Disney World!

    I just returned from Walt Disney World and I made a point to check out the newly re-imagined Old Port Royale at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. You might already know this, but I'll share that Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort now features an even more relaxing and enticing island time feel with new amenities. I can say for sure that our dinner at Sebastian’s Bistro was one of the most enjoyable Disney dining evenings of the many we've experienced.

    I'm not certain if you're asking about room size or Resort size when you ask about "how big," but in my opinion Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort gets the mark for both. A typical room size with 2 queen-size beds at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is 300 square feet, while a typical room size with 2 double beds at Disney's Pop Century Resort is 260 square feet.

    When it comes to the overall Resort layout, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is a collection of island areas — Aruba, Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, and Martinique — all nestling Barefoot Bay. We took the time to wander around and soak up the island magic, and we even spent time hanging out in the hammocks on the beach. I find it a simply beautiful island Resort. Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort does feature an internal bus loop and a bus loop for the theme parks.

    Stacey, here's wishing you a wonderful stay.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
