    Hiya, Denise!

    Welcome Home and welcome back to planDisney! How exciting that you have an upcoming Disney vacation at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Like you, I love spending at least one day enjoying our Disney Vacation Club Resort pool during our vacation.  We often enjoy a home-style meal that day while taking advantage of our Disney Vacation Club Resort Villa amenities like our full-size kitchen or the onsite grills. It's such a wonderful way to enjoy Disney magic outside the theme parks.

    Denise, a cabana rental is a great way to enjoy your pool day.  There aren't cabanas at Bay Lake Tower; however, there are cabanas for rent at the main pool at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  I can't find any mention of a Guest limit, but Member Services informed me that typically, they can accommodate around 8 people. 

    But if your family is like mine, some of your Guests may be in the pool while others are relaxing in the cabana, enjoying the padded chairs and couch, fruit tray, complimentary non-alcoholic beverages or TV.  So, it is possible that 9 people could take advantage of the cabana. There is no capacity listed that limits the number of Guests, but it may just be that not all 9 Guests can sit at the same time in one cabana.

    In addition to the features I mentioned, your cabana will also include a mini fridge, a telephone for internal Resort calls, a Bluetooth speaker, a ceiling fan, and a safe.  So it will be a great place to enjoy your relaxing day and a great home base for your fun pool day.

    Denise, I do have a little extra pixie dust to share!  Eligible Disney Vacation Club Members DO receive a discount currently on cabanas at Disney's Contemporary Resort, though this is subject to change.  So, that is another great perk of Membership. 

    One final detail I just want to share is that to check in to your cabana rental, one Guest in the party must be 18 years old and you will need a MagicBand or Key to the World Card.  Also, I recommend booking this in advance, as reservations do fill up.  You can reach out to Member Services who can book this for you.

    I hope this helps you, Denise.  If you have any further Disney Vacation Club or Disney vacation planning questions, stop back and see me here. I'll be most happy to help you!

    Magically yours,
