We were going in May so I knew it would be hot and needed a place in the shade. A Cabana was the answer!
The Cabanas at Typhoon Lagoon are called "Beachcomber Shacks" and are worth every penny.
If you are debating on if this is something you want to do here are the details:
The Beachcomber shacks provide your family with a comfortable place to hide from the sun, get away from the crowds and relax. When you arrive at the park you will head to High N Dry rentals and get in the cabana check in line. From there you will be checked in and everyone in your party is given a wrist band.
The cast member walks you to your cabana and explains the amenities.
Your cabana host will greet you and give you her number to text if you need anything.
She is there to bring you food, drinks, extra towels or anything you think you will need.
The cabanas will accommodate up to six guests and the cost is $351.56 for the full day plus park admission, it includes the following:
Cooler with bottled water refilled all day
All day drink mugs for everyone in the party
Lounge furniture-(ours had six Adirondack style chairs as well as a couple of ottomans and side tables)
When it's time for lunch head back to your cabana and text your order to the attendant, she will magically bring your food to you. No need to stand in line with the masses.
The cabana menu has the same items found at the counter service restaurants in the parks with offerings such as burgers, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, salads, wraps and several desserts.
There is also a drink menu for alcoholic beverages.
Our cabana was located right near the wave pool so it was a great centrally located spot in the park where everyone can meet back at during the day.
Cabanas can be booked 180 days ahead and payment is due in full at the time of booking. You can cancel and get a refund 24 hours in advance.
If you are looking for something special to do with your family and have some luxury added to your vacation this is a great add on.
Ask your agent to help you reserve a cabana for your next Disney vacation.
