When we wanted to swim, we walked just a bit (less than a minute's walk) to the water. We never wanted to use the loungers on the beach...just used the ones at the cabana. Anyone who has any qualms over #17 should feel re-assured... you will love it.
We have #17 for the Sept 4th Dream cruise. So happy to hear that you enjoyed it, makes me feel better about being at the end!

Do you get the snorkel gear with the adult beach cabanas? I know you don't get the sand toys, but I am confused about the snorkel gear.

Is there a recent trip report/picture of a Serenity Bay cabana that someone could direct me to (even earlier in this thread-- I read the beginning and the end but couldn't get through the whole middle). TIA!

In one of the pics I saw it looked like they had new sand toys. Are the sand toys for the kids to keep and bring back home?

At $499 for a cabana, I would think that the $2.99 sand toys could be kept!

It's the internal accounting that Disney is thinking about.

You're renting the cabana for one buck....it's the sand toys rental @ $ 498 per day that really makes the bottom line look good....

We have #19 on the Adult Beach reserved for our October sailing. I looked at a map and it seems to be close to the begining of the beach. Does anyone know how close to the restroom and the adult beach "Cookies" that cabana is?
