Splashback: Family Fun, 1960s Style
The centerpiece of the Cabana Bay Beach Resort is the pair of courtyards with enormous zero-entry swimming pools. The 8,000-square-foot zero-entry Lazy River Courtyard pool has a sand beach and a lazy river with waterfalls and water cannons.
Dive On In
The 10,000-square-foot Cabana Courtyard pool features a sand beach with a dive tower and waterslide, interactive kids' play area, and cabanas for rent.
