That would make sense with me, since the new family beach cabanas will have to be numbered later.

I'm thinking that they should "number" the Serenity Bay ones with the alphabet. And use numbers on the Family beach ones. That way, if there is any future expansion, they won't have this problem.

It would also make it clearer which location the cabana is located if it has a number or a letter.

Agreed. And I'll take Cabana A every time.

It's just a regular cabana on SB that's often held back but DCL have begun releasing it for on-line booking now.
Glad to hear this, I just saw it available for our Nov.1st cruise and grabbed it hoping it was SB, its just hubby and me this time no kids or grandkids.
I figured it was going to be the new big one with a huge price tag that will go along with it.

Thanks for the info.

I was able to book Cabana 21 SER when I checked in at 105 days as a gold member for our Nov 10th cruise. I was surprised to see that that was the ONLY cabana available, and after reading what had been posted here, wasn't sure if I'd be able to get it. But when I clicked on it, and selected "check availability" it came up as available for us so I booked it.

Where do the cabana options show up when it is your time to book? Are they under the port adventures link?

Current Wheelchair Accessible booking procedure

Hi,

Sorry about this I tried to skin the thread but there were quite a lot of posts to go through. Does anyone know what the current procedure is for booking the wheelchair accessible cabana (as I understand it only number one is wheelchair accessible, none of the ones on Serenity Bay?)

We are getting close to our booking window, and I don't know if I will be able to book online, or if I will have to book on board.

According to the Disney disabilities guidebook "Cabana #1 is accessible; please see Guest Services or Port Adventures onboard for availability." so it can't hurt to call up Port Adventures and see if there's an interest list before hand. Unless something has changed recently, it can't be booked online.

Under "Additional Accessibility Information" on the right are the Guidebooks for each ship, the Castaway Cay page is the same on all.

I am soooo confused. My 105 days was today at 12:01 am. All the cabanas (of course) were gone. However, this CAB21 SER was listed under the activities. I clicked it, added to cart and confirmed. It got approved -- with no price or description of whether it is on family or adult beach. HOWEVER, I went online this morning and, while it is confirmed in my activities, it is STILL listed under activities on the Castaway Cay as available!

I emailed Disney about it and am waiting for a reply.

Other posters have written this as well. Evidently you will see it as available since you booked it, but no one else will see it as available. So not to worry, hope it turns out that you have what you wanted! My guess is that it is the last cabana on Serenity Bay, the adult only beach.

If you have a Cabana booked, it will always show "available" for you. But not to others. I've read they do that so you can make changes to that reservation if you want.

So I pulled off the impossible -- I got a cabana !!!!!

I am stunned and beyond happy. After 9 Disney cruises, this was our big splurge and we felt we've earned it. Thanks for your responses.

Cabana 21SER is the last cabana on the adult beach. I checked with DCL and it is priced at $399 just like the other cabanas at Serenity Bay. It will show up as available only to you since
you booked it. It will NOT show as available to anyone else. Congratulations on getting a Cabana.

Congrats on your cabana. This is cruise #9 for us, but our first splurge at booking a cabana. We were invited to share with friends at their cabana last Sept and fell in love with "cabana life".
