    hi its my first time planing a trip and the first time to Disney the Caribbean Beach Resort does it have a free breakfast and does it have a place where we can do our laundry and do we have to give them our luggage at the airport?

    I'm here to walk you through all of your trip planning concerns.

    The WDW hotels do not offer free breakfasts as you would find at some off-site hotels. I've stayed at many hotels in my travels that do offer complimentary continental breakfasts but some of the only free food at WDW is in the concierge lounges at a deluxe hotel. And even then, I wouldn't consider it free since a guest has to pay a much larger room rate in order to enjoy the services on the concierge floor.

    So, no, the Caribbean Beach Resort does not have offer a free breakfast. Breakfast items will be for sale at the Old Port Royale Food Court. See for menus so that you can budget your breakfast costs. Sometimes our family brings granola bars too!

    Coin-operated washer and dryers are available in a laundry facility in each of the Caribbean Beach Resort's villages. They are located near the pools so that you can throw in a load of clothes and then relax by the pool.

    You do not have to utilize Disney's Magical Express luggage service. If you are using DME's bus service from the airport to CBR but want to pick up your bags at Baggage Claim, do not place the DME luggage tags on your bags. You'll go to Baggage Claim and then the DME Welcome desk to get your bus assignment.  Disney's Magical Express must be reserved in advance whether or not you are using the luggage service.

    Let me know if you need any further help!
