    Update: I called Cabana Bay hotel and spoke to the gift shop. They do not sell floats in the gift shop. I thought I saw floats in the gift shop on our last trip, but wasn't 100% sure. Well according to the gift shop employee they do not.

    My son is going to sleep on the sofa with a blanket and pillow from home, without opening it into a sofa bed. This way the air mattress will fit on the living room floor. He isn't tall and the sofa will be fine. We have stayed in the family suites at Cabana Bay twice now so we are aware of the space and set up. If we could get a cot I would leave the air mattress at home. Called Cabana Bay and they do not offer cots at Cabana Bay at all, no matter which room is booked.

    Also, 2 bedroom suites are not available during our trip. Otherwise I may have switched us to that.

    We have stayed at most of the hotels, fortunately, as my daughter is a CM. Cabana Bay, is by far, our favorite. We like the layout of the rooms and the privacy afforded by the little living area/kitchenette.

    We've stayed at several of the Deluxe resorts and they are nice, but we love the laid back family atmosphere at CB. However, that being said, the key word is "family" so if you are looking for romantic, quiet or adult, you might want to look elsewhere.

    The only issue we have had is PARKING. DH drives a quadcab F150 and parking it is a nightmare. Very limited parking (IMO) and several nights we had to park a long way from our room.

    Just got back from another GREAT week at Cabana Bay! It's an absolute STEAL for Volcano Bay entry and is just our favorite place to stay period right now!

    I made a fun little youtube video for the resort. Click and enjoy. Really puts you in that Cabana Bay mood!

    I have a question on the s'mores (love them and it looks like a fun thing to do). They sell the kits at the hotel, correct? Is there usually a wait to get to the fire pits or can you just walk up and make yours?

    Saw it being done, but haven't done it or looked it up myself. We are Scouters and smore-making is a sacred art. LOL! I think they sell kits, not 100% positive though....
