When we booked our cabana for our upcoming cruise I asked about the cancellation policy and was told 3 days prior to cancel just like all other excursions. I would assume if you dock at CC even if the weather is not great you probably have to keep your cabana reservation. Look at it this way if it is rainy at least you have a dry comfy place to sit on CC and some planters punch

Right now, only concierge guests can book the cabanas in advance and even that time frame is up to DCL. We are on the Dec 18th cruise and they just opened up our booking on Friday, Nov 5th. I believe anyone else who would like to book a cabana can do so once they get on board.

Did you have to go to one end or the other to get around the hedge, to get to the water? Were there people on the lounges/chairs in front of you, between your cabana & the water??

Thanks!!
We had a path right behind our cabana but off to the side. We were in number 5 at the family beach. It really was a perfect spot. The lounges were between the bushes and the water. We took the ones directly in front of our cabana. Other cabanas had their own lounges in front of them that were next to ours. But they know you can only have six people in each cabana....so it doesn't get crowded and you have enough seating anywhere you want for your own group and each group next to you. For that reason alone, I think it's a good idea that they put limits on the number of people in each cabana. If your group is bigger than that....just get more than one. It keeps it under control and it doesn't get crowded or noisy. It truely is paradise.

Here's some pictures:

We were in number 5 so you'll be three down from where we were. We were close to the bathrooms and Cookies Too. It was a short walk over there. Three doors further down won't be that much. It's a good location.

We have #2 for our cruise. Is this a good location and would we still have a clear view to the beach or is the make shift barrier(to the left of your cabana) that is seen in the pictures in front of us?

I'm sure the barrier will be off to the side and you will have a beautiful view. Remember it's DISNEY!!!!!

Thank you for your response. It is probably just the angle of the picture that makes it look directly in front of cabanas(1-3)

DARN YOU ALL!!! You just cost me $499. We were thinking about a cabana since receiving the email from the concierge, but we were hesitant to book because we couldn't find any good pictures. The price is a bit steep (I had in my mind that they would be "worth" about $350), but I think it will let us enjoy the entire day at CC. It looks like a great place to call home for the day and will let the little one get a nap without going back to the ship. Last time, we ended up going back to the ship right after lunch and not getting back off.

Now, if we could only get an update on whether they will have chocolate chip cookie dough icecream...

You won't be sorry....in fact, quite the opposite. Like me, you won't ever want to do CC without a cabana again. I didn't go out on the beach. I stayed inside the cabana the whole time in the shade and the breeze that came through there was like heaven. I didn't want to leave. It was so relaxing.

We were there at CC on Oct 23rd and there was no chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. It was Mango flavor. I heard rumor that that cookie dough ice cream was clogging the new ice cream machines, but again that is only rumor.

Floats and tubes were on the beach already. Snorkel and bikes are picked up at the rental location and you just show them your wristband.

Yes, but you can press your 3 second button and they will drive you to the rental location and back.

About this golf cart transport...from reading this thread, you are driven to your Cabana from the ship and back to the ship from your Cabana? Are their specific set times or can you come and go as you please? From your quote above, it seems they will drive you other places through out the island... is that right?

The 3 second button, what else is it used for? Can you have food brought to the cabana from Cookies Too? What about other drinks and or snacks?

Sorry about all the questions, I'm considering booking a Cabana and I want to be clear on everything included... especially in terms of personal service. Thanks for humoring me.
