I see the stairs leading up to the Cabanas. Any idea if any of the cabanas are wheelchair accessible (ie with a ramp instead)?

thanks.

Is it really a private beach? I assume you share the beach with other cabanas but other than that... its private?
Do you get alot of noise from the family beach? That is one thing we like about the adult beach.

Do you have to be concierge to book these?

Thanks for the great pics!
There are cabanas on the adult beach as well. As of now, only concierge can book in advance. Others can book onboard. The beach is private for the cabanas. As for noise, someone who has already been can answer that question.

I'm sure if you were further away, you could call your concierge cabana manager and he will drive you to the bathroom and back and to Cookies Too and back. Just press the button for 3 seconds.
Hi Deb, Thanks so much for the information. I didn't know if there was a better location to request or not. I'll just let DCL assign us the cabanas and see which ones we get.

Thanks so much for the information Sharon!

I was prepared to pay extra for the extra people but DCL is keeping the limit to 6. I don't know if they will change this over time, but this is what they are doing right now.
If it's 6 bodies regardless of age that kinda stinks. We have 6 adults and 2 kids, ages 3 years and 10 months.

I totally agree with you, that's why I tried everything I could think of but DCL stands firm on the limit of 6 people. Even though the ages in my traveling party are older (7 adults & one 14yo) it's not like we are all going to be in the cabana at one time, we just want to be in the same area on the beach. Not only do we want to try out the cabanas but my mom is undergoing treatment for cancer and can not sit in the sun so this is the best way for her to get off the ship at CC. If we don't book 2 cabanas then that means our family(which Disney is big on) will have to split up. I understand the cabanas are small but if the extra 1 or 2 people are part of your traveling party then I think you should be allowed to include them at an additional cost. JMO

I didn't see any cabanas with ramps, but that doesn't mean that there aren't any. I would ask DCL to be sure.

No noise, just peace and tranquility. You'll be amazed at how nice they are.

When I was there in July, I think I noticed that a few of them had ramps.

Were the pitchers of Planter Punch included or was the alcoholic one extra?

Thanks for sharing your pictures.

The pics have sealed the deal for us on this! Thanks for posting, but would love to read other reviews, too! We have two boys, 3 and 1, and I am hoping this will be a good choice to help keep them cool (although our last cruise in Feb was moderate temps) and offer a good nap location and home base for our family and my parents.
