An Epcot Area Resort
Bus transportation is available to all Disney World guest areas.
The Caribbean Beach has multiple bus stops within the large spread out resort. These are at Martinique, Old Port Royale, Barbados, Trinidad, Jamaica, and Aruba. Buses pick up in that order and can be full before getting to the last stop(s).
Buses to Epcot and Hollywood Studios can be limited or do not run during Skyliner operating hours.
The Caribbean Beach is one of the resorts that has the Disney Skyliner gondola system for transportation to Epcot and Disney Hollywood Studios.
The Caribbean Beach is the main Skyliner hub. There are 3 separate lines which run from CBR to:
- Disney Hollywood Studios
- The Riviera Resort and Epcot
- Art of Animation and Pop Century Resorts
When heading to the theme parks during the morning rush, you will only have to wait in 1 line. Those coming from Pop/AoA wait in line there and then go to the back of the line at the Caribbean Beach Station!
Overnight Parking is $20.00 per night at the Disney World Moderates. Note this charge is initiated for all nights of your stay either by telling the front desk that you have a vehicle when checking in or by using your room key/Magic Band to enter the parking lot. If you will not be parking every night (say you have a rental car for just a dat or so) coordinate this with the front desk.
|This Disney Resort Hotel is a Military Disney Tips Approved Resort!|
We’ve stayed here several times over the years, some older nostalgic trips when the kids were younger, and most recently in late 2019 after the big remodel. It’s a big spread out resort, but we really enjoy it. The main common area is great and the new Skyliner is a big plus!Related Posts:
