Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort offers pirate themed rooms that will have the entire family feeling like they found buried treasure! Kids and pirate-loving adults will love Caribbean Beach pirate rooms because of their pirate ship beds, pirate decorations, and even pirate themed bathrooms!
Why Kids Will Love Caribbean Beach Pirate Rooms
My family booked two standard rooms at the Caribbean Beach Resort during our most recent stay to Walt Disney World, and we loved them. When we arrived at check-in, we asked for connecting rooms so that my son could nap in one room while we hung out in the other. We were given a complimentary upgrade to two pirate rooms because those were the only connecting rooms they had left.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen my son so excited as when we walked into our pirate room. If you have pirate-loving kids, here are four reasons they will love the Caribbean Beach pirate rooms.
1. The beds in Caribbean Beach Pirate Rooms
The beds were easily my son’s favorite part because they are built to look like actual pirate ships. They have pirate flags, cannonballs on the bottom, and even reading lights that look like they belong on a pirate ship. I can’t tell you how many times my son told people, “I get to sleep in a pirate ship,” almost as many times as he told them he was going to Disney World!
Traveling Mom Tip: The pirate room beds are double beds, which might be an issue for two adults sleeping side by side. My in-laws slept in one bed okay. However, I know my husband and I would never have fit. They’re best for two kids, two small adults, or one adult and one kid.
2. The barrel refrigerator in Caribbean Beach pirate rooms
I loved the barrel refrigerator almost as much as my son loved the pirate ship bed. It’s completely hidden away inside the barrel and if you weren’t looking for it, you’d have no idea it was even there. It’s just a great example of Disney theming at its best. Grab your breakfast out of the barrel and eat at the pirate themed table.
3. Storage in Caribbean Beach pirate rooms
The room is full of storage although you probably couldn’t tell when you first walked into the room. There are plenty of places to unpack all of your belongings and stay for a while including a treasure chest that fits larger items and stacked crates that double as drawers,
4. Bathrooms in Caribbean Beach pirate rooms
The bedroom isn’t the only thing that looks like it’s from the Black Pearl, the bathrooms are themed as well! Kids will love the huge pirate themed curtain dividing the bathroom from the bedroom area and the treasure map themed shower curtain. And make sure to look at the ground for wood planking that’s not typical in hotel rooms but is on pirate ships.
Look anywhere in the room to see more pirate theming. The breakfast table is covered in a pirate symbol, the wall by the door looks like ship siding, and even the bedside table is a barrel that looks straight out of Jake and the Neverland Pirates.
Are the Pirate Rooms at Caribbean Beach Worth the Cost?
Right now a standard room in May 2017 at the Caribbean Beach Resort ranges from $191 to $211 depending on the view and the bed size. A pirate room at Caribbean Beach right now ranges from $258-$263.
Since the difference is not that great, I think the upgrade to the themed rooms is worth the cost if you’re okay sleeping in double beds and have pirate fans in your family. I would easily do it again even if we didn’t receive the upgrade for free. My son’s excitement about our room, and about going to sleep in his pirate ship, seems like it was easily worth the extra $50.
