pool cabanas?

We are staying at AKL on DVC points. I see cabanas are available at Poly. The Disney site says they are only available to guests staying at Poly. I know as DVC members, we can pool hop. I'd love a cabana for the day - are DVC members able to rent the cabanas?

thanks!

The current Portable Perks offers a DVC discount for the cabanas at the CR, so that could be your back-up plan if you really want a cabana and aren't limited to the Poly. As for those cabanas, I would call and inquire as to whether DVC members "hopping" to the Poly pool could rent the cabanas as well. Keep in mind, you probably want to book ahead of time. We were staying at BLT and the cabanas were booked solid for our entire stay.

The cabanas at CR are for members staying at BLT using their DVC points or discount. They are not open to all DVC members. CR and BLT are both resorts that are not open to pool hopping so that is why the discount will only work for BLT guests.

I rented a cabana at the CR when staying at BLT and another time when staying at OKW. They asked where I was staying and I told them. Didn't seem to matter at all. Call them.

The cabanas are not only for dvc members.

Quoted directly from Portable Perks:

"For a special experience, try a luxurious poolside cabana at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Cabana amenities include: personalized service from an attentive Cast Member, 32" flat-screen television with DVD player, digital music docking station, mini refrigerator, fruit platter, chilled soft drinks, and bottled water. Members take 10% off with advance reservations! Call (407) WDW-PLAY (407-939-7529) to make reservations."

And from the pool hopping section:

"Pool hopping is not available at Bay Cove Pool at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Uzima Pool and Samawati Springs Pool at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Stormalong Bay at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, the leisure pool at Disney’s Beach Club Villas, and the pools at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. There are no exceptions to this policy."

Doesn't say anything about the CR pool being off limits - just the Bay Cove Pool at BLT. I couldn't imagine they would offer the Cabana rentals in the Portable Perks if it wasn't open to any DVC member.

That's how I've read it, too. Never was brave enough to ask here.

I can't see the whole thread, so I hope this pertains.
You can only rent a cabana if toy are staying at that resort.
I wanted one this summer but was told no. Imagine how aggravating it was when we went to that resort and they were all empty but I couldn't rent it!

Another cabana question for you experts- we have one booked at BLT for an upcoming trip. We always bring our own drinks/cocktails/snacks to the pools. Is it ok to do this in cabanas also? Asking due to the fact there is an attendant assigned and don't want to do anything non kosher. Thanks in advance!

Hi there! We had one in September during our honeymoon trip. The attendant was great and would have gotten anything we ordered but we did bring down a few snacks and a container of cocktails that we mixed in the room. The attendant didn't seem to mind and was very pleasant all day! Hope that helps.
