    Resort Recreation

    cabana bay resort pool and lazy river

    Cabana Bay has two large pools that are both absolutely amazing. If you are comparing Disney value resorts to Universal, this is one area where Universal comes out ahead.

    The first pool has a lazy river. You can either bring your own tube or you can purchase a tube at the pool. They will even inflate it for you.

    The other pool has a water slide themed after a dive tower.

    The pools offer cabanas to rent (head to the front desk to reserve)

    In the lobby area Game-O-Rama arcade is available for guests. The arcade offers a variety of games for all age ranges.

    The thing that makes this resort stand out above others is the bowling alley located on the second floor of the lobby area. Galaxy Bowl has ten bowling lanes and a full service restaurant. Reservations to bowl must be made in person, and they fill up fast. So if you plan on bowling, plan on heading to the bowling alley at open.

    Transportation at Cabana Bay

    Cars at Cabana Bay

    • Universal Buses: Buses can be taken to City Walk to get both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. The bus stop is located off the lobby.
    • Walking Path to Volcano Bay: Volcano Bay is located right next to Cabana Bay Beach Resort, and has a private entrance for resort guests. There is no bus that heads to Volcano Bay, so walking is your only option.

    Who is this is resort best for?

    This resort is an amazing value for families. Suites are available if you need more space or want a kitchenette. But even the standard rooms are fairly large. This resort is also great if Volcano Bay Waterpark is a priority for your group. The walking path is quick and easy, and there are no buses needed.

    The Downside?

    This resort does not offer Express Pass with your stay like the deluxe resorts do. Rooms with a view of Volcano Bay and the pool can get loud at times.
