If you are going to any of the theme parks, staying at this resort is the way to go. Load of fun, great pools (nicely heated in winter), easy access to food, an overall fun vibe, early admission to the parks, and shuttle buses which means no parking or traffic hassles. We loved

Went to Orlando to visit Universal Studios with my daughter. Great shuttle to the park. Loved the retro theme of the hotel. Best gym I’ve ever seen in a hotel. Only thing I wish they had was a free shuttle to the airport.

You will love this 1950's era styled hotel! We loved it. The rooms are so retro yet up to date and beautifully appointed, right down to the 50's era toiletries provided! Dining area was fun with big screens showing 1950's commercials. Food choices are plentiful and decent.

I received an email on Black Friday for a discount on Cabana Bay. We usually choose to stay at Royal Pacific mainly for the Expeess Passes. We were not disappointed with Cabana Bay. Beautiful colors, great theme and family atmosphere. This hotel is huge. Plenty of elevators so

Can anyone tell me if Glutien free food is offered at Cabana Bay and in the park?
You can ask any of the Chef's at Bayliner Diner for a gluten free menu, and they'll accommodate you. As far as the park goes I know several things there are gluten free. The Texas Cajun Chicken Sandwich at Bubba Gumps and the Cheeseburger in Paradise at Margaritaville in City Walk are GF. Butterbeer and the soft serve ice cream in the Wizarding World/Diagon Alley. The chicken taco's at Bumblebee Man's in Springfield. I'm sure you can ask the chef's there too or call ahead and speak to customer service. Those were just things we found when someone in a party had a gluten intolerance.
