  • Disney files expansion plans for Caribbean Beach

    Walt Disney World has filed plans for an expansion of the Caribbean Beach Resort which likely means that a rumored DVC resort will be added. Most of the Barbados section of the resort will be demolished and a 5 to 6 story tower will be constructed along with other changes to the resort.

    I was surprised when I read this. I'm planning a fall trip and love comparing resorts. It seemed like people really like CBR, except for the fact that it's so big and spread out. That's really the only comment I have, since I've never stayed there.

      Wonder how this will impact the views from World Showcase?

        When will they start construction? I will be there in May. Don't exactly want to deal with that kind of a mess.

          The permit was filed with the South Florida Water Management district which normally happened a couple months before construction starts. The permit say work will begin in 2017, but not exactly when. You may get lucky in May, but as the year goes on it's going to get more likely that major work gets under way.

          One thing to note about this, the permit does NOT say anything about the heights of the new buildings, but it does seem likely that the largest new building will be mult-story since it's replacing a lot of the guest units in that area and we have recently seen height test balloons in this area. The map below shows the new buildings that are going to be built circled in red. The permit does not give any indication as to the purpose of each of these buildings. There were also rumors in the past that an expansion if CBR might include a boat connection to Epcot, but nothing in these plans indicates that is happening.

            Why are they replacing Barbados instead of just creating a new area south of Jamaica? That area is reserved for a future section anyway...
