Last week I posted the above picture and asked for guesses as to where it is located. There were some great guesses but eight of you knew exactly where to find the lighthouse.
Congratulations to Dean, Doug, Melanie, Robin, Linda, Judy, Gliria, and Carter & Mom, who all knew that the lighthouse is located at the Caribbean Beach Resort. Specifically this lighthouse can be found when you exit the lobby in the back to go towards the pool and the rooms. It looks pretty at night with the backdrop of the water and an added bonus to the view is when there are fireworks visible.
Lobby, Dining, and Rooms
This moderate resort hotel is decorated with lots of colors that remind you of the tropics. The lobby has a light and airy feeling. Guests will find tables in the lobby that have charging stations, so you can charge your devices as you wait for your room. Off to the side of the lobby is Centertown Market, which is a quick service restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Other dining options include Sebastian’s Bistro (table service), Spyglass Grill (quick service), and Banana Cabana (bar service).
There are five different areas where the rooms are located. These areas are Barbados, Jamaica, Martinique, Trinidad and Aruba. In addition to the regular room categories that are available to book guests can also book a pirate themed room. The beds in the pirate rooms are shaped like pirate ships, so it’s a fun themed room. One thing to keep in mind with the pirate themed rooms is that those beds are double beds, not queens beds like the other rooms have.
Since there are so many buildings with rooms, and everything is spread out, you can’t walk everywhere. To make it easier to get around there are bus stations at each island area. Not only do park buses stop at these stations, but there are also internal buses that make the rounds throughout the day. These internal buses will take guests around the resort, so it’s easier to get around.
In addition to bus transportation, guests staying at Caribbean Beach Resort also have the option to use the Disney Skyliner station at this resort. This is the station that guests use to transfer to get to Epcot or Hollywood Studios, so it’s a busy station, but the Skyliner is in constant motion so even if there is a line it usually moves quickly. From the Caribbean Beach Skyliner station guests can choose the line that goes to the Riviera Resort (which can be seen from Caribbean Beach) and Epcot, or to Hollywood Studios. Guests can also use the Skyliner to visit Art of Animation and Pop Century.
Thanks to everyone who played along this week and congratulations to everyone who knew where to find the lighthouse! Another Where is it Wednesday picture will be up soon.
