Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort at Walt Disney World® Resort celebrates the spirit of tropical locales — from the legacy of colonial forts & architecture to lively markets, exotic brids, and relaxing strolls on the sand. Each island complex — representing Barbados, Martinique, Aruba, Trinidad, and Jamaica — is bright, airy, and colorful with access to a 45-acre lake and sandy beaches. Earlier this year, Disney announced that Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort would undergo some transformations. Today we’ve got some new colorful details about those enhancements debuting late next summer!
Centertown Market will be expanded and enclosed, creating a quick-service restaurant with an indoor street market vibe. You will enter the space under a large palapa-like structure, accented with glowing colored light pendants made from glass bottles. The market will feature open shutters, wooden light posts, awnings, ornamentation and unique seating areas. Guests will also have access to the Grab n’ Go market for a specialty coffee and quick bites.
Shutters, a Caribbean-inspired table-service restaurant, will be located on the waterfront of Old Port Royale, transporting you to a beachfront home in the tropical islands. Large open shutters will allow the sun to cast a warm light into the space adorned with handmade items that appear as they’ve been found on the islands. Leaves and floral design motifs will fill the space, celebrating the natural beauty of the Caribbean.
A festive poolside bar, Banana Cabana will be a great place to gather for food and drinks, immersing you into the fun and relaxation of island life. Cabana-style drapes will flank seating areas and re-purposed steel drums will illuminate a central communal table made from a wooden boat.
With its history of being the port’s import and export facility, Calypso Trading Post will offer shoppers Disney merchandise and other vacation essentials.
