Back about 5 or 6 pages in this thread there's talk about the beverage packages you can pre-order to have waiting in your cabana when you arrive.

We've had a cabana twice (last in March 2012) and this wasn't offered either time.

Cabana-like atmosphere on a budget

While I certainly would love to be able to afford a cabana, it's just not in our budget. So, here are my tips for those in the same boat. We have been to CC twice, most recently on Sunday Mar 10 2013. If you head to the farthest part of the Family Beach, on the second crescent, and sit between the Sand Bar and the cabanas, it is less crowded. Fewer people make the trek down that far. It's not such a bad walk all the way, and of course you can take the tram to cut it further. All the chairs and umbrellas were open when we got there, about 9:15am, and even by lunchtime there were still many open chairs and plenty of room in the sand by the water. In this spot you are very close to restrooms and Cookies Too for lunch, as well as Spring a Leak and In Da Shade. You can also hear the same steel drum music as in the cabanas because they play it at the SandBar too. Enjoy, can't wait to get back there!

I believe that is exactly where the info was located previously.
Wonder if they pulled the info since so few could reserve and then shared their disappointment with DCL.
Even a Goggle search pulled up no details on DCL site, only a few references.

Weird.

The cabanas show up once your reservation window opens. They are just greyed out as booked unless available. They are not limited to concierge.

Yes. But I was trying to say they are not limited to concierge since they show up under port activities when you can reserve them - as that was a speculation for not having info on the site. Sorry to confuse.
