Id love to see a front view.
As you are Concierge on your Cruise you can begin booking the same time as the Platinum Disney Castaway Club. The window opens to book for Concierge Guests 120days before the Sailing Date. You should get a Family Beach Cabana without any bother.

Me too! Where do you even find the cabanas on the website? Though I am able to book excursions at 90 days and am sure they will be out, it would be nice to know here to find them. Thank you!

AFAIK, it's under port excursions.

Yes, they are listed under Port Excursions.

If you don't see any listed at the top of the list, they are sold out and you will see them grayed out at the bottom of the list.

Keep checking though - they do open up as the date gets closer!

We are booked in one bedroom concierge in April 2013. This will be our third disney cruise and last time (July 2011) we were not concierge . I spent everyday from the first day possible trying to book a family cabana. Never got it. I have been told by a concierge cm that we are likely to get one this time due to 120 day out booking. Anyone have experience to know which of the family cabanas are most private?

The most private ones are the higher numbered ones, as they don't have a beach and therefore beach chairs and umbrellas out in front of them - which means fewer people out that way.

I'd say 17 will probably be the most private of all.

Sorry to be a pest but does that mean we wouldn't have a beach out in front? Also is 17 an adult only? We have a three year old so I think we would be kicked out

Thanks so much for your input

You're not being a pest at all!

No, 17 is the last one on the family beach; 18 - 20 are on Serenity Bay.

There is a beach, but it's not like a sandy swimming beach with chairs and umbrellas, it's more rocky and from what I've heard there's no swimming allowed as the life guards can't see out there. (The beach kinda curves around.)

If you have a 3 year old, your best choice would probably be 11 or 10. They are at the end of the beach with chairs and it's a skip and a jump down to the water from there.

If you look back in this thread, I've posted a picture that might help. Click on it and it'll open full size so you can see better. Cabana 17 is on the left, so count down going right and remember there is no cabana 13.

We had 17 on our cruise last year and it was very private. They are correct that you are not able to swim out there, but we put our chairs there and watched our daughter collect sea shells with the girl in the cabana next to ours.
