Default Resort cabanas

Has anyone rented the cabanas at Contemporary or GF? Cost?

Are those the only two Disney resorts that have cabana rentals?

Thanks!

We have rented a Cabana at both resorts.

It use to be $110 for half day, $185 for a full day.

Polynesian has "Oasis Patio" rentals. They are shaded areas with lounge chairs and towels but food is extra. They are $25 for a half day and $40 for a full.

Just read a TR, may not have been here. They rented at the Poly and thoroughly enjoyed it. Especially the shade, in the hot summer months. Not sure what package they did, but beverages and snacks I believe were part of it.

We rented a cabana at the Oasis Pool at the Polynesian this past April. It was $63.90 for the full day. When we arrived there were pool towels on the chairs for us along with a placard with our name on it. There was an attendant who would wait on us, but not exclusively ours alone. It was quicker and more efficient to go to the bar/grille ourselves.

There may cabanas at the feature pool, but I'm not sure....

You mean 2017? I tried to google the prices and none had the updates ones, so thank you. Still a good deal IMO

If it's at the Poly DVC pool, those are not cabanas in my opinion... They are more like an open pergola with nice chairs and a table. Our same waitress waited on the family in the cabana so they waited for her just like we did. In addition, depending on the time of day, it may not be fully shaded (not enclosed like at other resorts).

Don't blame you, if I'm hungry or thirsty. Better to handle it myself if service is to slow.
