In anticipation of the upcoming re-imagining of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney is notifying guests staying in May and beyond that the food courts and gift shop will be closed for refurbishment.
According to the e-mails, the Old Port Royale Food Court, Shutters at Old Port Royale, Banana Cabana Pool Bar and Calypso Trading Post will be affected. Disney is assuring guests that there will be plenty of food options still available, including “grab and go” meals and island markets in the Aruba, Jamaica and Martinique sections of the resort.
It’s uncertain what specifically Disney has planned for the venerable moderate resort, but a statement from Disney last week said that dining and shopping options would be moved closer to the water.
