Villages with names like Martinique, Barbados and Trinidad surround a 42-acre lake at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. Tropical birds and colorful flowers give the moderately priced hotel an island flair. “We were challenged to create the character of famous islands that people could relate to,” Chao said. “The bright colors, landscaping, slopes and textures we used reflect the local traditions and architecture of the islands.” Jamaica’s British influence is noted by the yellow and blue color scheme and Victorian style architecture; Trinidad, the “bird island,” uses browns and yellows; and Barbados, the “island of flowers,” features pinks and greens.
