I'd love to get a kids suite. Did you request it?

I was upgraded from adjoining club level rooms to the jurassic park suite and another room with two queens because right before we left denver on January 28th they announced they were closing Jurassic Park and Jaws while we were there starting on Jan 29th through feb 12th. I wrote them a letter stating how idiotic it was to have zero notice of these closures. they offered me free fastpasses.........duh...id already have them. then when we got there, the manager at RPR offered us this upgrade and they filled the kids room with dinosaur souvenirs from the park. it was really great of them to do for us, they made loyal customers for life..

Room 1725 - Tower 1, Seventh Floor IOA view!! We just returned last Friday (3/6/09) from 5 days at RPR.

A week prior to our arrival, I called and requested an upper level room with a park view. I was so excited when checking in and the TM told us our room number. I knew is was great before we entered the room from all the pics on this thread! It was quite a walk from the elevators, but that is not a problem for us.

It was wonderful! We are already planning next year's trip!

thanks for this info--just starting to think about our trip in October 2010 and DS would love the Jurassic suite. Do you (or anyone) know if they are all located in Tower 3 with this same general view, or are they in different places?

We just got back from 8 days in Orlando, the last 2 at the RPR, room 1522, we got the single King bed we wanted and used one of the AP specials and were upgraded to a water view (you could see the water and pool, but mainly trees, no biggie, I have to look through my pics for a shot from our window. Which didn't really matter to me, I was there for FOTL, and the good AP price of $169 for a Saturday night. Now I am counting the days until our HHN19 trip!!!

1729 water view or garden?

I'm curious if the rooms you're talking about (1729,1727) are water view or garden? They don't overlook the pool, but do overlook the waterway between the hotel and parks. I have garden view booked for Aug. and would like one of those good park-view rooms, but I'm wondering if I need to switch to water view. Also, I'm curious how they know which specific rooms are available two weeks in advance. thanks.
