Disney has more rooms available in their different resorts than they want or need, so they are looking to get rid of some of their inventory. A great way for them to do that is to turn existing resort space into Disney Vacation Club properties. The problem is, they are also running out of resorts to change over. One of the last viable options seems to be Caribbean Beach.
As a Disney enthusiast, and passholder, I have stayed in many of the resorts on property. I can say, without hesitation, that Caribbean Beach is my least favorite. It's too spread out. It's on a long bus route. It's not cheap. It doesn't have great restaurants. The list of complaints against this particular resort could go on and on. But, it could be the perfect DVC resort.
Because Caribbean Beach is on the water, it's also a prime candidate for adding some new Villas, a la Polynesian–right out on the water.
Disney Vacation Club resorts also typically have great sit down restaurants. Caribbean beach could use a better restaurant and the general facelift that accompanies a resorts transition into a DVC resort.
If this does happen, I may be tempted to give Caribbean Beach another shot. Heck, I may even be tempted to buy into this property if it becomes available.
