Midnight tonight - Cabana watch

I don't suppose there is any way to know ahead of time if there are any cabanas left?

If not, guess I'll be up til midnight trying to get one....

There is no way to check if there are some available. However are you a castaway club member or a fist time cruiser? Because that can defiantly affect your chances of getting one.

On my cruise, cabanas became available to concierge at 120 days out and they were gone by 119 days out...they are in high demand!

Yes, Castaway Club member (silver) - midnight will be when I can book excursions, etc. I'm trying for one of the four on the adult beach.....

You can ask someone else on your cruise who is a higher CC member than you (gold, platinum) or someone who is concierge to check for you. There was a couple of nice people who checked on cabanas and several excursions for those of us who were silver or new cruisers on my upcoming cruise.

Go on your Disney Cruise Meets page and if someone is Gold or Platinum they can check for you.

We are platinum and I logged on at midnight at 120 days and all the cabanas on the family beach were gone and all but 2 on the adult beach were gone.

Not sure if that is true of all cruises - but unless you were concierge, you weren't getting a cabana on my cruise (Eastern Caribbean/Fantasy)

I was told to keep checking back because sometimes people cancel. I'm hoping but definitely not expecting it.

Good Luck!

Good luck! Cabanas are one of our splurges from time to time. If you don't get one, though, keep checking because I read here they come back to availability from time to time. Also, check with the shore excursion desk as soon as you board.

Follow-up

Absolutely nothing available last night. I'll keep checking in case someone cancels. Thanks all.
