Now available for 10/23/2010 Eastern

I was just able to reserve a cabana on CC through shoreside concierge. She said something about a presale so I don't know if they are open to everyone or just to suites at this point. They were just opened up for our cruise and one other cruise.

Pricing is $499 as widely speculated. Includes food, snacks, water, snorkel equipment, floats, sand toys, bike rental, and private shower.

Are you in a concierge cabin? I'm on that same cruise and would seriously think about this!

DCL accepting reservations for concierge guests

Hi, I had been reading this forum to learn more about the private cabanas. I have a 10/31/10 cruise reserved in a concierge suite and I called the concierge service today with a few questions. To my delight, I was able to reserve a cabana. They are currently taking reservations for concierge only but if space is available, they will open it up to other guests once onboard. There is currently only one tier of service available, and they are calling this their 'soft opening' time so things could change over time.

The price is $499 and includes the host, fruit, snacks, water, soft drinks, sunscreen, fluffy towels, fresh water shower, beach toys, tube and float rental, snorkel gear and a 1hr bike rental. Good for up to 6 people.

I hope this information is helpful to some of you! I'm excited to know I have some guaranteed shade for our day at Castaway Cay with my family!

Thank you so much for the information. We are in the Roy O Disney suite on the October 23, 2010 eastern cruise and were able to book one too. They did also mention to me that this was a presale as well.

Yes, I booked through the concierge, not sure of they are available to non-suite guests yet.

They just opened them today. I contacted them yesterday to ask about them and they said they had no information but suggested that I call back today. Today I was able to reserve one. It appears they are only taking reservations for a couple of cruises at this point.

For $499 the list includes some things that cost extra anyway. The Castaway Getaway package includes the bike, floats and snorkel gear. That, along with water, toys and sunscreen, could easily cost a group of six people around $200. The other items pretty much look like things you can get for free - you just have to go get them yourself. So the extra $300 (or $50 per person) is for the convenience of having a host bring it all to you, and for having your reserved area for the day. Actually, what might sell it for me... is having that shower all to ourselves. I hate waiting in line for one.

We will have 9 people in our party next year. Is there a maximum amount of people it can hold?
