Cabana at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

On Monday, my friends and I rented a pool cabana at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

You can rent for 4 hours or the whole day(10:00-2:00 is the first time slot) for $110 or $185 plus tax and we tipped as well. They had Cabanas by the main pool and then two out by Bay Lake by a quieter pool which is where we were located.

It was so great having the nice breeze blowing across the lake, and having a ceiling fan underneath. Our cabana host also closed one side of the tent for us to block out the sun.

The cabana comes with drinks in the refrigerator and a small fruit plate. There is also a television, and an iPod docking station with USB connector.

There were two padded lounge chairs, and two lounge beds that were big enough for two people each.

You can order drinks from the bar, food from the poolside counter service location, or even from private dining (takes more time). I had an amazing drink from the new bar menus you may see at the Disney resort pools.

You can have up to four people in your cabana, so it isn’t that expensive if you have some friends or another couple to share it with. We really enjoyed the quiet as well as the view from our cabana.

It was nice to be able to enjoy the sun then get in the shade under the fan when I needed a break. There is wi-fi at the pool so you can even bring your laptop.

  1. That sounds amazing! I would definitely do this if I lived anywhere nearby.

  2. How fun! You totally have me dreaming of sunshine! It’s starting to get colder here and I already miss the summer!

  3. I think it’d be great if I spent the whole day by the pool, especially for some post marathon time. But $110 is a lot and I’d rather spend it on dinner or lunch… or another night at the hotel!

  4. Great especially for all day Disney pool time I’m sure!

  5. Looks so nice and relaxing!

  6. Well like you said, if you are with a small group or another couple, it is actually a pretty good deal. Talk about doing the Contemporary in style!

  7. After a long run, I think that would be great, and $110 isn’t too bad if you’re splitting it between 4 people.

  8. Love it! You had me at lounge bed and that fun drink.

  9. Never rented one, but it looks like fun! :0)

  10. That looks relaxing! I like!!! 🙂

  11. Looks SO nice! I would love to do that someday 🙂

  12. We are in Vegas for 6 weeks, and I have been VERY tempted to rent a cabana at many of the hotels, minus – on the strip they are EXPENSIVE. Two of our friends out here got free tickets to supposedly one of the best – $4,000 cabana rental for a day. Turns out it was weird and not as fun as one would think for paying that.

    We might be renting at the old part of Vegas as their prices are much more doable and normal . I would jump on them if they were that price you paid! Hmm.. girls weekend during PHM 2014? ?
