A note from Disney,
“In an effort to continually enhance the guest experience, some of the resort rooms in the Trinidad area of Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort will be receiving a brand-new look and feel. These new rooms, which will include subtle nods to fan-favorite characters from under the sea, will accommodate more guests and feature updated finishings that can’t be found anywhere else at the resort. As we prepare these new rooms, guests will be able to see and hear refurbishment work in and around Trinidad beginning October 3, 2022. We look forward to welcoming guests into these new rooms in 2023.”
