Currently Disney has four moderate resorts, Caribbean Beach, Coronado Springs, Port Orleans French Quarter and Port Orleans Riverside. Moderate resorts are the perfect combination of value and amenities. These are great resorts for those who are on a budget but are looking for amenities such as table service restaurants and on-site recreation. Disney’s moderates are all well themed and inspired by destinations.
The Caribbean Beach is relaxing, tropical and vibrantly colored with villages named after Caribbean islands. There are 2112 guest rooms in 33 2-story buildings. Categories include standard, preferred, pirate, water view, pirate water view and king. Most rooms are tropical themed except for the pirate rooms which have pirate ship beds and barrels (rum not included). All rooms have two double beds except for the king. Amenities include coffee maker, ceiling fan, and mini-refrigerator.
On-site recreation includes 7 pools featuring waterfalls, slides and cannons, children pool, whirlpool spa, a 42 acre lake – Barefoot Bay, an island with a picnic area – Caribbean Cay, kid’s playground, arcade, jogging trail, marina, volleyball, and beach area. At the marina you’ll find recreation rentals such as bikes, sea racer, pontoon boat, canoe, peddle boat, sailboat and even fishing excursions.
Old Port Royale is the main activities area which includes Market Street (food court), Shutters (table service restaurant) Calypso Trading Post and Straw Market (shopping) and other activities. The Customs House is in a separate location and contains the front desk, check-in, concierge and bell services. Check-in is at 3:00 p.m. and check-out is 11:00 a.m.
Bus transportation is available to the theme parks, water parks and Downtown Disney. Due to the very large size of the resort there is an internal bus to get around. For those with their own car, parking is free. However parking may not be close to your room so if this is a necessity asks when checking in to see if there is a room available close to parking.
