Time to take the “Way-back Time Machine” to the 1950’s and enjoy all of the fun at the Universal’s Cabana Bay Resort Orlando Fl. If you are familiar with the most recent editions of the “Disney World Value Resorts like the Art of Animation Resort, you will probably see a few similarities in the design and structure of the Universal Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Don’t get the wrong idea and think that you will be coming to a Disney resort though. Universal does a great job at creating their own unique resort masterpieces all by themselves. I think the main thing to notice is the fact that this resort is aimed at giving its guests a great experience while keeping the cost down over the other Themed Resorts.

Oh how I love the Universal Water Taxi system

Well, that could be a little bit of a problem. The Water Canal that normally transports guests back and forth to the other Universal Resorts, did not get extended to accommodate the guests at the Cabana Bay Resort in Orlando. In order to get to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, your best bet is to take the Complimentary Shuttle Bus or head out on foot. Although it is a little further away, you are only looking at about 0.7 walking miles to the entrance of Islands of Adventure or 0.8 miles to the arches of Universal Studios. Considering you will be walking many additional miles around the parks and City Walk each day, you will have to determine if this is the best mode of transportation for you.

What are the rooms like?

There are two different types or sizes of rooms at the Loews Cabana Bay to fit the different price points and families that visit. There are Standard rooms but if you need more space to spread out, you can move up to the more spacious Family Suite with additional living space and a small Kitchenette. Get more detail on the Rooms and Suites at Cabana Bay Beach Resort Rooms.

Pools, Lazy River and Water Slide

After you leave the main building after check in, you will notice that you have an option to head in one of two directions. This resort is broken up in to a North and South Courtyard area. To the North, you will have access to the Cabana Courtyard Pool with Zero Entry, large Water Slide and a Sandy Beach. On the other side of the resort, another Pool awaits with Zero-Entry, and a fun Lazy River. There is plenty to read on this at the Cabana Bay Beach Resort Pool.

That’s not all

I know, you would think that this was enough already but there is so much more to explore and find at the Orlando Fl Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Things like, a 10 lane neon spectacular bowling alley, a very large Game Room and even a Fitness Center.


The largest dining available on the resort would be the Bayliner Diner where you have many different options layed out in a Food Court setting. If you are looking for something a little lighter and away from the crowds, there is additional dining in the Bowling Alley as well as both of the pool areas. Dining options can be found at the Cabana Bay Beach Resort Quick Facts.
