Resort Refurbishments

Oftentimes when we hear refurbishment we think of this affecting our favorite attractions in the Disney Parks. However, resort refurbishments also happen! Those rooms have to stay in tip-top shape for the many guests who stay at Disney World resort hotels every year. From room updates to pool closures, there’s usually some type of refurbishment happening.

Currently work is scheduled at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas, a pool refurbishment at Saratoga Springs, and the closing of the guest-favorite dining location, Kona Cafe, at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.

Today, it appears that another resort may soon be joining the growing list of Resort Refurbishments as well.

Caribbean Beach Resort was the first moderate resort to open at Walt Disney World in 1988. This relaxing resort allows guests to be transported to the Caribbean Islands while also enjoying the magic of a Walt Disney World vacation. Be sure to check out a full guide to this beautiful resort HERE.

One of the charming features of this resort is the special Pirate-Themed Rooms. These rooms allow pirates both young and young at heart to sleep aboard pirate ship-themed beds and many fun pirate touches throughout the room.

Disney describes these rooms as, “Your Caribbean adventure continues in a room fit for a buccaneer. Leave the shores of paradise behind and set sail for the land of dreams upon a ship-shaped bed.”

“Discover hidden treasures and nautical details that ignite the imagination and place you and your family right in the middle of swashbuckling action. Endless quests await as pirate lore comes to life in this unique accommodation!”

It appears that these uniquely themed rooms may be disappearing quicker than Davy Jones’s treasure. When visiting the Walt Disney World website, you can still select to search for a Pirate Room. Once you click on the link, the next page simply shows the standard non-themed rooms for Caribbean Beach Resort.

It is rumored that a retheme may take place at Caribbean Beach Resort for the Pirate-Themed Rooms.

Earlier this week, this link would show only the pirate-themed rooms. At this time, Disney has not announced this refurbishment and it is unclear when a refurbishment may begin.

  1. Woke Disney never fails to amaze me. Not is a good way. Who knows why the alphabet people in charge want to eliminate pirates. We won’t be coming.

  2. We stayed in connecting pirate themed rooms when my grandson was young and before becoming a DVC member. We had so much fun! My grandson and I would play Pirates and the floor was the water with crocodiles and we would use Light Sabres and Buzz Lightyear guns to shoot them and save everyone. He still remembers this fun time!
    Guess it depends if Pirate rooms should be updated if children still want to play pirate. Or to have the rooms re-themed to something more relevant and what children want. AOA has Little Mermaid, Cars, Lion King rooms etc. Port Orleans has Princess rooms. Thus is Disney so keep Pirate rooms or something else else that is FUN!
