Evoking the spirit of road trips c 1957, Cabana Bay Beach Resort has a beautifully themed, hip, retro-Florida vintage vibe. It offers moderate and good-value accommodation. Family suites have kitchenettes and sleep six; and there are two pools, a bowling alley, a food court and a lazy river.
While guests can enjoy early admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (a huge plus), they do not benefit from perks afforded to guests at the other Universal Resorts, including Unlimited Express Pass, priority dining status and boat transportation to the parks. You must either walk the 20 minutes or take a Universal bus to the theme parks.
