This picture was taken just days ago at the Cabana Bay Beach Resort in Orlando, Florida. It was designed to resemble a hotel from the 1950’s not just on the outside, but also on the inside with details including retro style lighting and furniture. Even the soap and shampoo in the bathrooms have vintage style labeling. Despite the old style design, the rooms are cozy and the beds extremely comfortable for sleeping.
There’s enough to do here to keep the entire family entertained, including floating in the lazy river of the swimming pool, shopping, dining and even some bowling at the bowling lanes on the second floor.
The best part is that the hotel is so close to the Universal theme parks that you can leave your car in the parking lot, take the resort’s bus and arrive at CityWalk just minutes later. I got to enjoy an additional perk by being allowed to enter Islands of Adventure one hour before it opened and go on the rides at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter before the crowds came pouring in. That was awesome.
Everything about this resort is a treat. It may be a little more expensive than some of the other motels in the Orlando area but my stay there has been the most enjoyable lodging experience I ever had. I can’t wait to visit this resort again.
