This photo walk was created in 2012. Much has changed at the resort since then! I will be posting a new one at the end of the 2019 once Disney’s Riviera Resort opens.
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort was the first moderate resort on Walt Disney World property, a huge change from where I had usually stayed with my family at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. Up until then, there hadn’t been a resort with exterior hallways, nor had their been a food court prior at a Disney resort.
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort was a favorite of the marathon guests I booked when I worked as a Disney specialized travel agent. It is a very spread out property, with 6 villages and nearly a mile and a half of walkway to exercise on around the lake. I enjoy most of Disney’s resorts now for various reasons – the Caribbean Beach Resort is more laid back and very serene, and the walking here is wonderful.
Old Port Royale is the hub of the activity, with the food court, stores and Shutters restaurant. I’ll also show a few pictures at the end of the Custom House, which is not part of the walk (it’s where guests register, but unlike most other resorts, it’s not the main hub).

There is a concierge desk for those looking for dining reservations and more:
The food court; Shutters restaurant; a grab-and-go food area and the game room are in Centertown:
Walking out the back of the building, our walk starts at the fountain. I’ll have photos of the Pirate themed feature pool area near the end.
I always take the photos first, then time the walk at my normal pace (about 3mph). I start the timed walk at 9:25am, and we are walking to the right and around the lake. Most walks tend to be about a mile, this is closer to a mile and a half.
The marina with lighthouse is on our way (to the left when on the walkway). Surrey bikes are lined up here as well.
