thank you...........and here i just thought no one reads my crap....



i signed up for each website of cars that are offered on or near the airport,
different search sites, airline sites that have partner offers on cars, yapta, etc.

for the last few years, i use car service but still keep up on the car rentals in case i want to rent a car for a few days while in orlando.

Hi,
Staying at RP in November. Does anyone know what time the pool closes? I read somewhere 6:00! That sounds crazy to me since I know some of the parks close at 6:00 also. Thought we could enjoy the pool when we got back.

HRH Deluxe Room or Kids Suite

Does anyone know if the Deluxe Rooms or the Kids Suite at the HRH include Club Level? If not, can we request it when we arrive at the hotel? TIA

We've been there in Feb and the pool didn't close until around 10 o'clock.

On club level there are four deluxe rooms. However, you cannot book them, you can only request them. I would call a few days in advance and request one. I don't think there are any kids suites on club level.

Thanks damo. We are leaning towards the kids suite especially with two teenage boys. Just trying to figure out all of the options. We have visited the HRH many times for dinner but have never really explored. Is there a place to grab a quick breakfast? We have eaten at the Kitchen many times for dinner but never breakfast. We are definitely going to do breakfast there next year. When we were there in March, I was almost positive I saw a "Starbucks" sign.

shuttle from the airport to the resort hotel?

I will be at the Royal Pacific in May. I got the "stay more, save more" rate because I booked Jan 1st (only $186/night). I am also pleased that I purchased my park tickets at $99 each for 7-day 2-park hopper pass, right before they increated the rate! WooHoo!

Questions:
(1) Is there a shuttle from the Airport to the Universal Hotel resorts?
(2) Do they offer the Baggage Check like at Disney? That is an awesome perk. But if they don't do (1), then I guess they wouldn't do (2).

Thanks for all the great comments.

What car service do you use? Looking to find a way 2 and from RPR in August. Thinking we may want to do a grocery stop, nothing major just snacks, drinks, breakfast items

Coolers/Fridge

Does anyone know if they allow small coolers in RPR? I just want to have snack foods on hand in the evening if we want and also cold water. I'm not sure if I read it on here, but someone said there weren't refrigerators in the rooms, but for a nightly rate you could get one, price? Also, do they have mini-bars in the rooms and has anyone just used that to keep their stuff chilled?

Thanks for any information!

They charge $25/n for the fridge and I know I have seen someone talk about using the wet bar for their things, but honestly cannot remember what they said exactly.

Yes you can bring your own cooler, We do it every time we stay.

FYI, we bring a 48 quart cooler with no problems.
