I’m going to let you all in on a secret…. ready?
My family and I went to universal Studios Orlando for the first time ever this summer! EEK! Don’t tell Mickey!
Our kids are getting older, and we are all huge Harry Potter fans, so we bit the bullet and went to Disney’s competitor…. And it was AMAZING!
We stayed at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, and it was one if the highlights of our Universal/Disney Vacation!
Our family of 5 stayed in a Cabana Bay family suite, and it was roomy, clean, and perfect for us.
Of course I figured out some ways to save money while at Cabana Bay, and I would love to share those tips with my readers today:
BUY FLOATIES BEFORE YOU GO:
Cabana Bay has 2 amazing pools, and an awesome lazy river. You can buy pool floaties (inner tubes) at Cabana Bay, or save money and bring your own from the Dollar Store like we did. They will blow them up for you for free too!
GET FREE STARBUCKS IN THE HOTEL LOBBY:
Cabana Bay has a Starbucks in it’s lobby, and you all know that I never pay for Starbucks when I can use my SWAGBUCKS to pay for it! Get a FREE iced latte on your way to the parks or the pool, or get free breakfast with your Swagbucks Starbucks gift cards!
BUY GROCERIES FOR YOUR ROOM:
Cabana Bay offers a pretty nice sized fridge, and a microwave in their rooms. USE THEM! We went to a local grocery store and stocked up on food to eat in our room, but you can also have groceries delivered if you don’t have a car. Use Garden Grocers, we have used them in the past, and they are awesome!
Cabana bay has a bunch of Coke Freestyle machines, and for $17.99 you can have as much as you want for the length of your stay. They offer the mugs for $8.99 a day if you just want one day’s worth of pop. (or soda, for all you non-Michiganders). They also offer Alcoholic Drink refillable cups by the pools for a cheaper price!
CHECK UNDERCOVER TOURIST FOR DEALS:
Undercover tourist offers cheap deals on Disney and Universal tickets, and often have cheap hotel/ticket deals too!
