universal orlandoIconic Dive Tower Slide at Cabana Bay Beach Resort

Universal Orlando Cabana Bay Beach Resort offers more fun and food opportunities than you can dream of!  Galaxy Bowl, a 10-lane bowling alley has its own table service restaurant featuring burgers, chicken wings, and quesadillas.  There is a complimentary Jack Lalanne Physical Fitness Studio and Game-O-Rama; an arcade for the entire family.  Shop at the Universal Orlando retail store with retro-themed resort gifts and apparel. The true hallmarks of the Resort are two spectacular swimming pool courtyards.

Lazy River Courtyard features an 8,000 sq. ft. zero-entry pool leading to a sand beach and Universal Orlando’s first ever lazy river where guests can float their cares away.  It is complete with waterfalls and water cannons and is surrounded by botanical gardens.  If you get hungry here, hit The Hideaway Bar & Grill – it has a tropical vibe and features a simple grill menu, signature frozen and non-frozen drinks, smoothies, beer, and wine.

The Cabana Courtyard has a 10,000 sq. ft. zero-entry pool with an iconic dive tower water-slide, and an interactive kid’s play area.  There are cabanas for rent and you can stop by the Atomic Tonic for a quick snack or signature frozen drink.  The resort staff will offer activities to get the kids involved such as a hula hoop contest, bingo, poolside movies and ping pong.  Different local food trucks will be featured at the pool each day.

Still hungry?  Dine at Bayliner Diner, the 600-seat food court which features several food stations including burgers and milkshakes, pizza and pasta, a bakery, sandwiches and grab and go items. If you need a perk throughout your day, stop by Starbucks or Swizzle Lounge right in the resort lobby.  Too tired after your day at the parks to head to a restaurant?  Delicioso will deliver pizza right to your room!  Universal Orlando’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort has got your family fun and food covered from every angle with its amazing amenities and eateries!
