Please refer to the first post regarding dining, shopping and concierge services at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort during the ongoing construction! I am keeping that post updated with links to updates and pictures.


Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort:


Old Port Royale Food Court, Shutters at Old Port Royale, Cabana Pool Bar and Calypso Trading Post are all closed.

There will be a variety of dining options available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Centertown, a dining location, will serve an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet for breakfast and dinner. A selection of grab-and-go meals will be conveniently available for purchase in three island markets located in the Aruba, Jamaica and Martinique regions of the Resort. Additional a la carte offerings will be available at mobile food vending locations. Our in-room dining will remain available. Any work most likely to cause a noise impact will not begin until 9:00 a.m.

Until we know exactly what is going to happen with Old Port Royale and, because it took quite some time to compile the information and pictures in the posts regarding Old Port Royale, I am leaving them as is for now.



Old Port Royale Continued

Old Port Royale is not only the place to dine, it is also the place to go when you want to shop and play too! Goombay Games, the resort’s arcade, has a fairly large selection of games for adults and kids of all ages. Just inside of Goombay Games are arcade card machines where guests can purchase various denominations of cards and also recharge them should you wish to play more. The number of points required to play the games vary depending on the level of skill needed to play the game.

Now it’s time to talk shopping! Calypso Trading Post, the resort store, is divided into two areas. One side is located nearest the food court seating area and just through the doors leading out to the main pool. This section of the store sells swimwear, flip flops, sandals, sunglasses, pool noodles, pins, toys and snacks. One of the more unique items for sale are the coconut postcards that can be mailed to friends and family.

On the other side of Calypso Trading Post, you’ll find the more traditional Disney themed merchandise such as hats, Mickey ears, clothing, Vera Bradley bags and an assortment of charms and jewelry. Kids will enjoy the nice selection of toys, plush characters, dolls and kids’ clothing. If the big coconut postcards are a bit larger than you want to mail, there are many other postcards on the shelves at Calypso Trading Post. Those that like to scrapbook will be happy to hear that scrapbook stickers and kits are available for purchase too.

If you get to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and realize that you’ve forgotten a razor, sunscreen or other such sundries, Disney has got you covered. Those type items are sold at Calypso Trading Post. If there’s something that you don’t see, be sure to ask a Cast Member and they’ll be more than happy to help you find what you are looking for. They also sell books, magazines and newspapers.

An option for groceries would be to place an order with Garden Grocer. I'’ve ordered from them many times before and their services have always been great. There is a minimum $40 order and I believe a $15 delivery charge. If you are not at the resort when they deliver your order, it will be left with Bell Services who will hold it for you. If there are any items that need to be refrigerated, Bell Services will take care of that too. You can either pick up your order from Bell Services or call them and have them deliver it to your room.

Those who don’t place an order for groceries can find most of what they need at Calypso Trading Post. In the cooler, there’s bottled water, milk, Coke products, beer, wine and other beverages. To satisfy your sweet tooth, donuts, cookies, candies are sold there too! If you want something savory or just want a peanut butter sandwich, you’ll find all those fixings there in the store.

    I’ve covered the dine, the shop and the play but there are also two often overlooked services available to Guests in Old Port Royale. One is the concierge desk. Located near the entrance of the food court, the Cast Members at this concierge desk can help Guests with the majority of their needs with the exception being checking Guests in and out. They can check your dining credits, print dinner show tickets, assist you in calling a cab, etc. Before making the walk or taking the Internal Shuttle Bus to The Custom House, stop by the Old Port Royale concierge desk to see if they can help you.

    The other is a Disney Vacation Club information desk. If you think that you might be interested in buying into Disney Vacation Club, stop by the Disney Vacation Club desk located to the right when entering Old Port Royale from the parking lot side.

    Other activities that sometimes take place in Old Port Royale, especially if it is a rainy day, are limbo and dance contests. Though he/she isn’t there all day, a caricature artist does have a desk in Old Port Royale and, in my opinion, the price isn’t prohibitive for such a cute and unique souvenir.

    Outside of Old Port Royale, is the main pool which is zero entry and has not one but two slides, a children’s splash/play area, a pool bar, a marina and in the evenings (weather permitting) they show movies just outside of OPR and have marshmallow roasts on the Martinique beach.

    Seating and courtyard area outside OPR:

    Movies are shown nightly, typically at 8 p.m., in the Old Port Royale courtyard weather permitting

    When the pool was redone a few years ago, the children’s splash/play area was redone as well and has a slide and tipping/dumping bucket. There is a height limit of 48". Depending on how busy the area is, the lifeguards will sometimes let children slightly over 48" play in the area with their siblings but it all depends on the crowds and is at the lifeguards’' discretion.

    The marina which no longer rents watercraft is on the resort lake and is to the right of the OPR courtyard. Bicycle and surrey bike rentals are still available at the marina.

    Main Pool
    All of the Disney resorts have started closing the main feature pools and hot tubs once the lifeguards go off duty. Some guests have reported that the quiet pools are no longer open 24 hours as they once were.

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort has a gate around the main pool and it’s locked once the lifeguards are gone. Towels are provided and there is a towel return bin located near the pool. If you bring towels from your resort room, you can leave those in the bins. Once back in your room, call mousekeeping from your room phone and ask that more be delivered. They are happy to do so.

    Pools are heated to approximately 82 degrees at all Walt Disney World Resorts.

    Lifejackets are available for use at the main pool and can be found in the bins near the pool.

    For safety, diaper-age children must wear plastic pants or swim diapers.


    Poolside activities take place at the main pool area. Schedules may vary seasonally, but there are usually planned events every afternoon, plus a movie under the stars in the evening. Events may include: Dance Parties, “What’s in Your Beach Bag,” “Mickey Who?,” Notable Quotes, and others.

    Changing rooms/showers and lockers are located just outside of the main pool.
