Just a few weeks ago we gave you a peek into construction of cabanas at the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts’ shared pool, Stormalong Bay. This stellar pool (arguably one of the best on property) is a destination for guests at the resorts, and now a day poolside can be experienced in comfort! Rentals are now open for the cabanas for dates beginning March 17!
The cabanas will provide services and amenities such as padded furniture (including chairs and a couch), dedicated cast members, towels, a lockable cabinet, a mounted television with cable access, and charging outlets. All the creature comforts — and then some!
For cabana dwellers looking for snacks, services include a mini-fridge stocked with complimentary soda and water, cocktail service, and a complimentary fruit tray.
The cabanas are relatively neutral in design, the styling blending with the Yacht and Beach Club colors of sea blues and gray. Retractable curtains provide privacy and shade when needed.
Plenty of lounge chairs remain arranged around the deck for pool guests.
The cabanas are only available to guests of the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, and they can be rented by called 407-WDW-PLAY. Reservations can be half-day (with prices starting at $149 for 10 AM – 2 PM or 3 – 7 PM;) or full-day (with prices starting at $249 for 10 AM – 7 PM). Official info about Walt Disney World cabanas at select resorts can be found here.
Aaaaand now we want a pool day.

Can’t help but feel the cabanas will take away from the spacious open feeling of the pool. Not to mention blocking views because you know they will be situated in the most prime locations. Seems like Disney is taking a family affordable resort and turning it into a snooty hotel. I guess I will find out in September if we need to find another vacation resort.
@Tony- I am not sure I would call the Yatch and Beach an affordable family resort. It is one of the higher priced deluxe resorts. The high price of the cabanas certainly don’t make things cheaper, but it isn’t a cheap place to begin with. That said, I am sorry this addition has soured your view of what it sounds like used to be your go to place.
I’ve reserved my cabana for June! I’m so excited to not have to stalk beach chairs and have some built in shade for our sensitive skin…plus with a toddler it will help to have a cast member to help with ordering food. This will be awesome!
