It’s been several months since we last stopped by our new favorite retro-modern hotel, Universal Orlando‘s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, so the other afternoon I took a stroll around property for a Cabana Bay Garden Bridge construction photo update.

 

Ever since the moderately priced property opened this past summer, Cabana Bay guests’ transportation options have consisted of buses to the parking hub, or a 10 minute walk along the unglamorous north side of Hollywood Way.

 

Soon, the final element of Cabana Bay’s amenities will open, as the long-awaited garden bridge and walking path is nearing completion. This heavily landscaped and ADA-compliant pathway passes the future site of Sapphire Falls, Universal’s recently announced 5th hotel, before joining up with Royal Pacific‘s walking path.

 

When complete, the new walking path may actually take more time to traverse than the current sidewalks, but the journey will be safer and more scenic. No opening date has been announced, but as soon as the garden bridge is available we’ll have a POV video of the walk.

    So, for now the best plan is to use the bus to get there at opening? What time do the buses start rolling in the morning? Or, would you recommend just walking?
