    Hey Panelists! I have a family trip coming up in April, and was thinking of renting a poolside cabana at the Grand Floridian Resort for a half day. Do you know what are the hours of a half-day rental for the afternoon? Thanks!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Douglas! 

    Douglas, when we see a returning guest my fellow panelists and I are more excited than Bert when he spied Mary Poppins floating down from the trees. Now, let’s talk about how to make your vacation SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS! 

    Douglas, I love spending time lounging by the pool at my Disney Resort Hotel and renting a cabana is the perfect way to ensure your family’s comfort in between laps. You are correct that cabanas are available for either a full or half day rental. The times of these will fluctuate based on the hours of the pool. Currently the pool hours listed for April at the feature pool at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are 10 AM- 10 PM. A full day cabana rental would cover this entire time frame whereas a half day rental would either be from 10 AM- 4 PM or 4 PM- 10 PM (times are approximate).  Douglas, please keep in mind that as you’re planning, the ability to rent a cabana is subject to availability and may be cancelled due to inclement weather. To secure your booking, please call (407) WDW-PLAY.

    Douglas, I’ll be crossing my fingers for you that your day by the pool is “practically perfect in every way.” If, like my family, swimming works up an appetite, Beaches Pool Bar & Grill is only a few steps away and will certainly help restore your energy for splashing or even jumping into a chalk painting if you find a Magical opportunity.

    Please come on back to see us here at planDisney with any additional questions you might have. Like Mary Poppins, we love to provide guests with "a spoon full of sugar."
