Earlier this year it was announced that Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort at Walt Disney World would undergo some transformations. Today the Disney Parks blog revealed some details on what we can expect in the Summer of 2018.
The Port of Entry
Old Port Royale at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will be reimagined as the port of entry where guests will check in. This centralized location will offer resort guests access to services, amenities and dining, including an all-new Centertown Market for casual eats, an all-new Shutters restaurant offering waterfront dining adjacent to the new Banana Cabana outdoor bar and lounge, and Calypso Trading Post for shopping.
Quick-service restaurant with an indoor street market vibe
Centertown Market will be expanded and enclosed, creating a quick-service restaurant with an indoor street market vibe. The market will feature open shutters, wooden light posts, awnings, ornamentation and unique seating areas. Guests will also have access to the Grab n’ Go market.
Caribbean-inspired table-service restaurant
Shutters, a Caribbean-inspired table-service restaurant, will be located on the waterfront of Old Port Royale. Large open shutters will open up the space and provide warmth and light.
A place to gather for food and drinks will be the poolside bar, Banana Cabana. Guests will have the opportunity to experience the island life. Cabana-style drapes will flank seating areas and re-purposed steel drums will illuminate a central communal table made from a wooden boat.
