Permits Suggest More Widespread Room Refurbishment Than Just “Pirate Rooms” at Caribbean Beach Resort

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

The Walt Disney World Resort filed a flurry of permits for most of the resort buildings at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. The permits list “general construction” as the description of the work and Balfour Beatty Construction as the contractor performing the work. Balfour Beatty is a longtime Disney favorite, constructing a wide variety of theme park and resort structures over the years.

Earlier this month, Disney announced that “rooms in the Trinidad area” of the resort complex would be receiving a brand-new look and feel. While it looks like the initial announcement was for the infamous Pirate Rooms, it’s possible that there could be a resort-wide room refurbishment coming up. Here’s a list of the buildings covered by the permits:


  • Building 25
  • Building 26


  • Building 31
  • Building 32
  • Building 33


  • Building 41
  • Building 42
  • Building 43
  • Building 44
  • Building 45
  • Building 46


  • Building 51
  • Building 52
  • Building 53
  • Building 54
  • Building 55

Disney has not announced a resort-wide refurbishment, but it could be a situation like we’re seeing at other resorts like the Magic Kingdom area resorts where a touch of Intellectual Property is added to rooms alongside a refurbishment of the rooms themselves. One interesting thing about the permits, and something that could throw a wrench in our speculation, is that each of the permits above has an expiration date of September 2023 – a timeframe that seems a bit tight if each building is getting a room refurbishment. That said, we have seen Disney move quicker on their resort projects than their theme park projects.
