PHOTOS, VIDEO: Tour a Volcano Bay View Room at Cabana Bay Beach Resort at Universal Orlando
Have you stayed in any hotels at Universal Orlando Resort? If not, we have you covered with our latest room tour. We spent a few nights in a Volcano Bay view room at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, so let’s see how we liked it.
Before even getting to the room, Cabana Bay’s hallways gives you an idea of what the room might look like, with brightly colored carpeting and stylized lighting fixtures.
This Volcano Bay view room is located in Beachside, one of the two towers added later to the resort. These towers are also very close to Volcano Bay and have an entrance reserved just for Cabana Bay resort guests.
Sure enough, the rooms have the same color scheme as the exterior carpet. The entire resort is themed after 1950’s & 60’s beach resorts, a rather charming aesthetic. Maybe this is what Disney’s Pop Century should’ve been.
Our room had two double beds.
The bedside table has a shelf and drawer, along with the vintage-style alarm clock and room phone. 4 standard outlets can be found above.
It’s not the fanciest, but it’s thematic.
There’s a small table and two chairs in the corner with a hanging light above them.
A majority of the outlets are near the table, with 3 standard and 2 USB available.
The dresser drawers are a vibrant red, white, and blue.
The closet has a sliding door.
The safe is on the wall inside the closet.
The closet features hangers, an ironing board and iron, and a luggage rack.
There’s a full-length mirror on the front of the bathroom door.
A toilet sits in a lonely corner of the strangely shaped, yet spacious bathroom.
The bathroom isn’t as colorful as the main room, but there’s another splash of blue in the shower.
We obviously had a view of Volcano Bay, but also the backstage area of a restaurant. Employees would occasionally come out and take a break by the large air conditioning unit, which was kind of awkward. Most Volcano Bay views will be pleasant, but we happened to get what is likely the worst one. The higher views are quite nice.
Still, we had a view of Krakatau and some of the rest of the park.

Overall, I’m a big fan of Cabana Bay, especially when I plan on going to Volcano Bay. Plenty of discounts are available on rooms to both Florida Residents and Annual Passholders alike. Volcano Bay view rooms are typically $15-25 more a night than a standard room, and $10 more a night than a poolside standard room. If you’re going to Volcano Bay or just prefer something pretty to look at, the upgrade is a no brainer. Rates at the Cabana Bay Beach Resort, in general, are reasonable.
