Quick stay before a cruise

Columbus, Georgia

We stayed at Cabana Bay for one night before a Disney Cruise. The resort was well-themed. The two pools, plus water slide and lazy river offer great options. I think it's silly they make you buy floats for the lazy river. (Rent them instead?) Food on-site was good and comparable to Disney resorts. Some of it better. The prices were definitely a little better. The free soda refills for 3 hours after purchase at the pool dining areas was a great thing. We stayed in a Family Suite because my son had a friend on the trip with us and we didn't want them to have to share a bed. The mini kitchen was nice to have if you were staying longer than we were. Our room was on the back side of the Starlight building, which is noisy because it backs up to a road. (I am a light sleeper and could hear sirens and horns.) As far as the room, it's a little tight. I would say that if you are expecting the divided room to keep out noise and light - it doesn't. My son's friend slept on the pull-out couch and kept the TV on. I could hear it through the divider and the light from the TV flashed and you could see it as well. (Again - light sleeper and I did get him to cut it off after a bit.) We didn't try to walk to City Walk on advice from reviews I read here. We took the resort bus and it was 2 stops away and a very quick ride. Was very convenient if you want drinks at City Walk! No driving! Also - there is a gas station right around the corner from Cabana Bay. We figured that out the day we were leaving. It's small, but if you want gas, maybe ice and beer - it's right there. Otherwise, I would absolutely stay here again and I would definitely recommend it to folks.

Great family vacation especially for Adult children

Grand Island, New York

We planned to spend 3 and half days at Universal and the same at Disney. We had a much better experience at the Universal part of our Holiday. Great ability to do your own thing, meet up for family join meals or rides and decompress in the beautiful pool. I really appreciated there were non Universal brand clothing boutique for adding clothing for the trip.
