Disney World reveals Caribbean Beach Resort transformation

Construction is well underway at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort which, once completed, will transform the resort into a brand new experience for guests staying at the resort. Construction on the resort began back in May of 2017 and will also include the addition of an all-new DVC resort called Disney Riviera Resort, which is scheduled to open in late 2019. Disney’s Caribbean Beach will also be getting a station for the recently announced Disney Skyliner gondola system. Disney recently announced new details about the Caribbean Beach Resort makeover, including new concept artwork and details on what this remodeling will look like once completed.

Upon arriving, Old Port Royale at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will now be known as the port of entry. No, not the Islands of Adventure port of entry. This port of entry will feature convenient access to services, amenities and dining, including an all-new Centertown Market, and another new dining venue called Shutters. There will also be the new Banana Cabana outdoor bar and lounge, and Calypso Trading Post for guests to enjoy a drink and do some shopping.

Disney mentions that the new Centerplace Market will feature “open shutters, wooden light posts, awnings, ornamentation and unique seating areas.”

All of the enhancements to the resort are going to take approximately two years to complete.
