    So, if someone purchases a cabana and leaves in the early afternoon, the cabana will remain vacant through the rest of the day and evening?

    I must add an addendum, the Express prices go higher in June/July than they are opening day... so these cabana prices for opening day aren't even the highest they'll be probably. If anyone wants to call and check prices for first week of July, that would be the best barometer for highest these will sell for. 877-489-8068

    At $29.99, the premium seating doesn't sound like a terrible deal. I am curious if even the open seating is padded- if so, that certainly doesn't make it as good of a deal. But if only the premium seating is padded, with a locker, $30 isn't terrible. But $45 just seems nuts to me for a couple of chairs... And I never understand the cabana people. I rarely spend money to enhance experiences- unless it saves me time (time is money). I get why- but it just seems so overpriced- I don't know, it's probably how I was raised. Even though I can afford certain things, I still can't bring myself to do it.

    Same as people who buy an Illumination Fireworks Cruise for two people. No better a view, but a bit of breathing space away from the crowds

    Ya- I get it. I'm just not a sitter- if I'm not moving and doing stuff I'm likely injured or dead :D

    The only time I ever rented a cabana was at Cabana Bay. It just seemed fitting.

    Also, it was cheaper, nice to have a shady spot all your own. And it had a TV. Can't beat that. Seriously though, it was nice having a fridge.

    My cabana is booked! :thumbsup: The girl that helped me was AWESOME but she said she's been on since 7am and every call back-to-back has been about booking a cabana. So if you're considering getting one, don't wait.

    Prices are going up due to "demand."

    $474 for a single Cabana on May 27th

    I assume they'll do exactly what they did at Wet n' Wild. If someone vacated the cabana, they would turn it over and resell it for the same value.

    I'd think if you paid for it for a whole day they'd leave it empty. Whats to say you aren't just going back to the room for a bit and coming back for the night show?

    Sounds like Super Bowl tickets syndrome. Scalpers in dark sunglasses lurking at VB and reselling Cabanas.

    Anybody else really surprised by the prices?

    At their lowest price, a single cabana is $26.66 a person and a family cabana is $18.75 a person (assuming full capacity).
    At their peak, a single cabana is $50 and a family cabana is $31.25 a person.

    I didn't expect the off-peak prices to be advertised as that low. I understand that they'll rarely be offered at that price, but that undercuts Disney significantly. I wonder if they'll fall into the airline trap, where airlines advertise 1 seat on 1 flight @ $1 and then people grow cynical about the offers when they can never take advantage of them.

    I like water parks in September right after kids go back to school, so I'll be the one taking advantage of the low prices.

    So where exactly are these family cabanas? Which structures are they? Are they the buildings over by CB?

    The cabanas seem to be scattered all around the park. My friend just booked one in the "rain forest" for July 15th and at the wave pool on July 16th (both 2nd floor). I didn't ask how much they spent, but they're Club 33 members so obviously they have no problem spending money.
