The lower cabanas are closer to the restrooms and cookies too. The ones about 11 and up are on a more private area of the beach. Across from about 1 through 10 there are chairs/loungers in front and you can wade/swim in the beach directly in front. The higher ones during low tide the water is low and there are not beach loungers directly in front, also to go out for a swim then you have to go a little to the left. It makes a difference if you are trying to watch kids from in front of your cabana. We have had 3,5, and 14/15 in the past. The lower mid numbers are perfect for us. I believe #1 is the only handicapped accessible one.

Certainly booking at midnight is a good option to ensure you get what you want. We have always just made this a shoreside request. And yes I believe they save some for concierge guests in addition to book onboard the first day.

This has been my experience. I attempted two cabanas, before I finally confirmed one. Yes, they go that quickly.

OP, do not login before midnight, otherwise you won't be able to make any reservations.

Awesome and Congrats. Did you see them disappear before you eyes as others have?

I failed/wanted to add prior, that once booked it shows up available still to you within the booking window and that confuses folks. It's like that with any ressies though.

Glad it worked out. Not to be a downer, but.. Hopefully you dock. We did not.
Good Luck.

Can you be logged in on two computers at once? We need two Cabanas (going to CC twice), I figure the hubby could do one day day while I do the other. Is that possible?

No, you can't log in together, even if you are in two separate rooms (if they are linked). I had to unlink our ressies, so DDil could book BibbiDo Bobbidi Boutique, while I snagged a cabana.

We booked 2 cabanas for our double dip. It was easier, than booking for one stop.
