A Beachcomber Shack is a splurge for your day at Typhoon Lagoon. But starting September 11, cabana pricing returns to “regular” season pricing rather than peak season. That’s a savings of $115/day on the Standard Beachcomber Shack and $150 on the Premium Plus shack. With daily temperatures in September still hitting the upper 80s and lower 90s, September is a great month to visit Typhoon Lagoon – so why not plan it after September 10 to plus your visit at a lower cost?
What Do You Get with a Beachcomber Shack at Typhoon Lagoon?
The standard shack comes with some pretty great amenities. You get a private space to relax in, including:
- Room for up to 10 people (seats for 6)
- A safe to store your valuables
- An attendant to take care of your needs
- Souvenir refillable mugs
- Unlimited cold water all day in a cooler box
If you upgrade to a Deluxe shack, you also get:
- Umbrella space
- room for up to 12 people (seats for 8)
The Premium Plus shack, which holds up to 10 people (seats for 6) comes with all of the above, plus:
- Dining table and mini fridge
- Electric fan
- Flatscreen TV and 4 electrical outlets
How much is a Cabana at Typhoon Lagoon in 2022?
Pricing varies based on season and the type of Beachcomber Shack. There are two seasons for Typhoon Lagoon cabana pricing. Regular and Peak. Peak season in 2022 is March 27 to September 10.
*that price doesn’t make sense to us either, but it’s from Disney.
To put that in perspective, based on an 8-hour visit to the park, rounding up, a regular season Standard shack is $29 per hour. An additional $9 per hour will get you into a Premium Plus. In peak season, that’s $43 per hour increasing to $57 an hour.
Or in terms of ticket prices, for a party of 4 adults, that’s $276 for 4 tickets ($69 each) and an additional $56.25 per person for the Standard Shack in regular season or $85 in Peak Season. Obviously, the more people in your shack, the lower the per person cost. Note that while you can add up to the maximum number of guests to your reservation, there is an incremental cost for each person beyond the number of seats.
Is It Worth It?
We think so! The cabana service is a great way to relax and escape the crowds at Typhoon Lagoon. It also offers conveniences that really enhance your day. Having a locker where you’re sitting is a big plus. Yes, you can rent a locker close to the front of the park for $10 to 15 a day, but that means schlepping back and forth every time you want access to your phone, tablet, or wallet. Or it means leaving your stuff under your beach chair covered up and hoping for the best. Easy and secure storage of your valuables helps you enjoy your day at the park.
Anyone can rent a towel at Typhoon Lagoon at $2 per towel, but again you have to pick them up, get enough for everyone, and carry them to your seating area. Or you could get them at your seats, as many as your need, and even get more during the day if you want when you book a cabana.
Finding the perfect place to sit at Typhoon Lagoon is another thing you have to do on arrival. Is there seating for everyone? Does it have any shade? Are you surrounded by people? A Beachcomber Shack solves that problem. There is comfortable seating, shade, and some privacy. And if there is a sudden rain, you have a place to wait it out while others are running for the park exit.
Beachcomber Shacks can order from a special menu of platters for large groups for an extra charge. And if soda is your thing, every person on your reservation will receive a refillable mug for use at the park that day. That would cost $12 each otherwise.
|1 medium locker||<$10|
|4 refillable mugs||$48|
If you were going to spend that anyway, that’s definitely something to think about when considering a Beachcomber Shack. But beyond the quantifiable amenities, you’re really purchasing comfort and convenience during your visit to Typhoon Lagoon.
