    We are going to be staying at the Beach Club Resort this summer, and we want to rent a cabana by the pool. Would we be allowed to use a cabana on the day of check-in, while we wait for our room to be ready? Thanks!

    Hey there, Courtney! Welcome back to planDisney, my friend! I'm so excited to see you here with another great planning question.

    You are someone after my own Disney planning heart, Courtney! One of my very favorite things to do on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is to spend the day relaxing in a poolside cabana, and the cabanas at Stormalong Bay are some of the best. Nothing beats having super comfy seating, shade, privacy, cold drinks, snacks and more to relax in style in between all the fun, splashing and sliding at the pool. Cabana days are the best days, and I'm more than happy to answer your question to help you have the BEST. DAY. EVER!

    I think you will be happy to hear that as long as there is availability, you can absolutely rent a poolside cabana and have a blast at Stormalong Bay, arguably the best pool at Walt Disney World Resort, on your check-in day. My family and I love doing split stays (staying at more than one Resort), and we love renting a cabana at our new Resort on check-in day. There is no better way to enjoy your Resort while waiting for your room to be ready. Let the magic begin!

    Since the cabanas at Stormalong Bay are so fabulous and popular, I recommend calling (407) WDW-PLAY to book yours as soon as your reservation window opens 60 days before your arrival. I also must recommend ordering cocktails and lunch from Hurricane Hanna's Waterside Bar and Grill. A server will come to take your order from your cabana, so keep your feet kicked up and enjoy!

    I hope this helps, Courtney, and I hope you have the best cabana day and summer vacation! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    Blue skies and sunshine,
