Disney Park and Resort Photo Updates

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort Photo Update as Disney’s Riviera Resort is Being Built – February 2018

Hi everyone!

I stopped at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort over the weekend to check out the construction as Disney’s Riviera Resort is being built. Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort has been undergoing renovations at Old Port Royale with the food court and Shutters restaurant being closed – as the whole building has been. Plus, Disney’s Riviera Resort is taking up where Barbados and part of Martinique were for the new 300 room Disney Vacation Club resort. You can see what Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort looked like in my 2015 photo walk. The Disney Skyliner is also under construction at the resort area, which will transport guests from Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Disney’s Riviera Resort will be the Disney Vacation Club’s 15th resort, with most being at Walt Disney World. It will also have a rooftop restaurant.

Resort construction can be seen from the road.

Here is the look upon arrival while traveling to Old Port Royale of Disney Riviera Resort construction.

Old Port Royale is fenced in while work continues.

There are signs for the area on the fences.

Walt Disney quotes line the fences.

In front of Old Port Royale, guests walk through here to get to the pool, food, etc.

The pool is open, and there are events that happen here as well.

Here is a look at some of the Caribbean Beach Resort buildings across the water.

The construction can be seen from just off the Fuentes del Morro pool.

The lighthouse is visible within the construction area.

These are a few photos of Disney’s Riviera Resort under construction.

It was harder to see Old Port Royale construction and I didn’t want to take photos while guests were in the pool area.

Walking past the Fuentes del Morro pool.

The Banana Cabana Bar is in a truck, with guests able to enjoy seating here.

Items for sale include a Purple Martin and Captain’s Mai Tai.

Centertown is the main food location, with a buffet but also a counter service area.

The buffet entrance is here.

And items that can currently be purchased outside are a Bacon Angus Cheeseburger and Barbecued Pulled Pork Hoagie.

There are also salads noted for lunch.

Guests can still enjoy the white sandy beaches.

Med Fresh Taverna had a food truck here. I don’t know if it is here every day, but it was a nice option for food.

Signage at the bus stop gives information on where to find food and to take the Pirate Cruise.

More work as seen from the bus stop.

On the way out, this entrance was being worked on.

Signage will eventually be here.

That is it today for Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort construction!
