Cabana Bay Beach Resort, 6550 Adventure Way, Orlando, FL, is a new place to stay right near Universal Studios. It is no more than a quarter mile from my studio and I watched as it was built up on a huge dirt lot next to the theme park. The lobby has retro themed 1950s TV commercials running all day. The pool area is expansive with a large lazy river around the perimeter. I walked in to see how the of he half lives. Tourists have it made in Orlando. Yet this retreat is far removed from the culture that can be found in Orlando every day.
This central a rest o the resort has all possible amenities lit restaurants, movie screenings, and constant watery bliss. Why would tourists brave the hot parks when they can relax here. Tickets were purchased and commitments made so most of these people were probable recovering from the sweat and heat stroke they endured in the parks. Guests benefits include, early Universal Studios Park admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, one hour before the theme park opens (valid theme park admission required) and complimentary shuttle buses and walking paths to both Universal Orlando theme parks and Universal City Walk.
