Work is finally wrapping-up on the overhaul of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort! The reimagined Old Port Royale will open on October 8th as the new front desk and concierge area for the resort. Inside, guests will find the new Centertown Market quick service restaurant and Calypso Trading Post, while outside they’ll be able to visit the new Sebastian’s Bistro table service restaurant and Banana Cabana pool bar.
The walls came down around the new Old Port Royale this week, revealing the Porte Cochere. Guests aren’t admitted into the area yet, but the sidewalk in front of the building is wide open.
As you can see, it was another beautiful day in Central Florida.
Along with these new additions, changes will be made to the island names on October 8th. Trinidad North will be renamed Barbados, and Trinidad South will become Trinidad.
Also starting October 8th, the existing entrance on Buena Vista Drive will close and the new entrance on Victory Way near to Art of Animation will become the entrance for cars and buses.
Even though it doesn’t officially open until the 8th, we were already able to exit out of the new entrance area. Just don’t try to come in this way before then.
The Caribbean Beach logo hasn’t been put up yet.
The old resort vehicle entrance will become the entry for Disney’s Riviera Resort, a new Disney Vacation Club property. Work is also continuing on the Disney Skyliner station at Caribbean Beach which will open at a later time.
