************************************/pools.html Not sure how current their info is but it's a start.

Hmmm... that's not cool. Ok, well here's some info on Poly & CR.

Try to Google "Grand Floridian Fan Site" & you should find specifically what you are looking for.

As mentioned the cabanna's are only at the GF, CR, and Poly. You have to be a resort guest at that resort to rent one. They are located at the pools, not on the beach area.

This info is from the GF thread:

Cabana Rental:

Rental Cabana amenities include:
. Two padded chaise lounge chairs
. Two padded straight-backed chairs
. Plush towels
. 22 inch LCD television with cable access and optional earphones
. Ceiling Fan
. Mini refrigerator stocked with complementary sodas and water
. Complementary fruit basket
. Private dining and poolside massages are available at an
additional cost.

A half day is $110.00+ tax, and is from 10am - 2pm OR 3pm - 7pm
A full day is $185+ tax for 10am - 7pm

Credit card needed to reserve; 24-hour cancellation policy; weather-related cancellation less than 24 hours, no fee, but any other reason and your CC will be charged.

Call 407 WDW-PLAY to reserve.

* I don't know the prices for the Poly or CR cabanna's but I would assume they are the same as the GF.

I rented a cabana at GF every day for 4th of July week. I paid every morning not long after I checked in at the cabana. I just charged it to my room key.

There were two padded loungers in front of the cabana with a small table in between the two. Inside there was 2 padded chairs and a padded loveseat plus a coffee table. The furniture was functional but not comfortable. Since there was only two of us we only sat inside while we ate.

There was a small refridgerator stocked with water and sodas. The fruit plate was brought out around 10:30-11:00 am and it was not that great. I've had much better fruit plates at other cabanas in other locations.

There was a TV but I never used it.

There was a telephone to call for private dining. I ordered something every day. The cabana attendant didn't handle this. The attendant did bring us a bucket of ice (we had our refillable mugs with us) and fresh towels. There was no one offering to bring drinks from the bar (every other cabana I've done has had this service).

The price is very reasonable. I wish the Epcot resorts had this service since that's where I normally stay. I think it's a good value for the cost.

Thanks for the info. I feel it is very reasonable as well compared to other cabanas we have rented at other places. Looking forward to trying it on our next trip. This will be our last family trip to WDW before oldest DD goes to college so I'm going all out and looking for lots of fun extras.

We rented a Cabana (Polar Patio) at BB in Sept 2011. It was not great at all, furniture uncomfortable, no sun, no button to hit for attendant. When we wanted to order lunch I had to go find him to order with 2 little ones with me I felt for what you get its VERY Overpriced ! We travel often and ALWAYS book a cabana, our kids are smaller and it just makes things easier. I did not feel like these cabanas helped make our lives easier at all.

We have also rented one at GF in May 2012, this was much better. The attendants were helpful, furniture was more comfortable than BB. The attendant did deliver drinks from the bar. I would definitly rent another GF Cabana.

I do also wish YC/BC did have cabanas.
