Do the King rooms all have the twin fold out sofa? Or is it a sofa bed. I'm hoping we can get a King for me & DH and have our 3 year old sleep on the fold out. We'll also have a crib for the baby, and seems like a King room would have more floor space than 2 queens.
There are three Cabana's near the monorail slide pool, the rest are down by the e ticket pool.

As for the rooms, every king we have had, has had a sofa bed and or day bed in it.

I can answer this one. The cabanas are on the opposite side of the kiddie pool and slides. You would not be able to see your kids from any cabana if they wanted to swim there.

The cabanas are around the main pool. Next to the main pool is a smaller pool, and next to that is the zero entry kiddie pool with fountains and several slides for kids of all ages and sizes. There are chairs around the kiddie pool but no cabanas.

Hope that helps a little

Do you have to be a guest at the DLH to rent one of the cabanas? At WDW, I can rent a cabana at the Poly but I don't have to be a guest there. We are thinking about staying at Paradise Pier. Thanks!

Hi Virgoinab, that is great! Did you happen to take any photos when you rented the cabana, and if so, are there any you could post in this thread? I'd love to add them to the front page...

Hi FoxyKendra,

Thanks for this question - as of right now we do not have any room reviews because no one has posted any. I just started this thread earlier this year and have made requests (in the thread) for folks staying at the DLH to leave photos and room reviews here when they return from their trips. For the most part, no one has taken me up on it - YET - but I'm still hopeful!!

Have fun on your trip and please feel free to post a room review and photos upon your return!

Sorry Opal, not this time but we are going back in oct and plan to rent another one, so I will endevour to take some for the thread.

I can you that when you rent a cabana you get a really nice fruit platter, plus in the fridge is water, and juices, and pop that are included. Extra food and adult drinks there is a charge, but again, really nice cabana with a tv, phone, comfortable furnature etc.

Also thinking of maybe surpirsing hubby with at two night stay in the fairytale suite, and will try and get some photo's for that one.

I am still amazed that of the 500 or so photos that we took during our wedding there last chirstmas, that we took no pictures of our three bedroom suite in the frontier tower! Can you imagine?

While the three cabana's that are on monorail level of the pool complex do not directly face the monorail sildes, they are right beside it, so you are not having to go up the stairs to use the slides from the other levels where the two other pools are, which do have the majority of the cabana's.

Our cabana was the last one/ or first one depending on how you look at it, on that level. Right next to the gate that takes you right to trader sams.

To reach the zero entry pool with the slides in it was about 15 ft from the front of our cabana, my mother loved it since she could go and cool her feet without having to go down the stairs to go into the other two pools.

That would be awesome!! All we have to date are the publicity stills released by Disney. Would love to get some more.

Yes I can imagine I think during your wedding you probably had a lot of other things that take priority over getting photos for a blog!!

Anyone have a photo of the cabanas? Do you book these directly with the hotel? How many people fit into one.

Sorry no photo * I will get one in Oct *

We booked ours at the front desk in the Fantasy tower, just to the right is a guest services counter.

I would say for it to be comfortable, between the inside, and the two lounger's you have just outside, about 5 adults could spend a relaxing time there by switching up seats, and of course not everyone will be there at the same if you are swimming.

They are not massive, but not tiny either. A family of four would have more then enough space.

The day we were there, in the next cabana they where celebrating a birthday, and had close to 8 ppl, it looked a little crowded to me.

Best Cabana Site

Aloha,

Of the six Cabanas (three by the Main Pool and three by the Slides), which location is considered best and why? My family of four (10 and 11 year old children included) will be spending a day relaxing at DLH before hitting the Parks. Cabana sounds sweet. Appreciate y'alls advice and recommendations.
