The warning is because even though my cruise plans confirms that I have cabana 19 booked for Oct. 29, it still appears as available to book. I waited overnight and then checked again, still there. I called DCL and the response was "oh, is that happening again...." It has been 2 days now and cabana 19 is still showing as available to book for the day I have it. DCL assured me that they are working on it and I have the cabana but I won't feel secure until it shows "no reservation available" like most of the other cabanas.

By the way, someone wanted to know about cabana 21, it wasn't listed. There was cabana 1-17 on the family beach $499 and only 3 listed, 18-20 on serenity bay $399 because no private beach and no free snorkling gear listed.
The cabana will show as available to you because you have it booked. It will show as unavailable to everyone else.

Hi, I did take some but I used my camera and not my iPhone. We are still in Florida on vacation and don't fly home to the UK until 28th and I can't upload them until then. Wish I could have helped! It was great - you will love it x

not sure if I can give the name here, but if you look online on a very popular site that shows video clips, there are several video tours of the cabanas

Because you have it booked it will show up under your reservation as available but will not under a different reservation. We have one booked for our cruise and it shows up as available under my reservation but if I look under a different reservation from our group it shows not available. I don't know why the DCL rep said what they did, but I think it has always done this.

We had cabana #2 on our Christmas cruise. I don't have a lot of pictures but here are a couple.


The Cabana



The view from the cabana. The path is shared with cabana #3.



View of the ship from our cabana.



In the background you can see cabanas 1, 2, 3, & 4. That's my parents in the photo.

It's a short walk. We walked it from Cabana #5 with no problem.

I was told there are some HA (accessible) cabanas - perhaps no. 21 is one of those and it has to be booked separately? (That came up when I didn't reserve one and asked if one would ever open up - the suggestion was to go to guest services and ask to be on the waiting list in case no one requested the accessible cabana - of course it was booked too.)

It is a very short walk. Actually the cabanas are right next to the beach that is in front of Pelican Plunge.

Here is a picture I have of PP from the beach area in front of our cabana.

Went online at midnight for my 90 mark and all of the family cabanas were already gone. I plan to keep checking daily, but not sure I will be successful. At the end of the day...it is still a DISNEY vacation
