We fly into MCO and then use a town car service that offers a grocery stop on the way to the hotel. Initially, we'd buy a styrofoam cooler at the store when purchasing our grocery items. Now we have fold-up cooler with a plastic liner that we can pack into our luggage, and use when we purchase our groceries.

Long time between visits

It's been so many years between visits that I forget everything. I just booked my room at the RPR for 1/4. I see others mentioning AAA rates but I didn't see such an option when I made the online reservation. Is there a trick to getting it? I am a member. Thanks.

I believe that you have to call them and ask what the AAA rate is.

HRH Loews First

Signed up for Loews First (now called YouFirst) then found out that stays at HRH Universal Orlando are excluded from receiving benefits. Maybe someone should change the webpage info.

I am planning to go to Universal in June and plan to go to Royal Pacific and was reading on this board that you get FOTL privileges to any ride that has Express privileges. Does anybody know which rides don't have that? Does Forbidden Journey, Spiderman ride have it?

Thanks!

Island of Adventure: Forbidden Journey does not have the Express Pass


Universal Studios: Rip Ride Rockit does not have the Express Pass


There are a few other things that do not have the EP but that is because it'a a kids play area or a street show of some type so there is no need for an EP.

Spiderman was AWESOME by the way and does have the EP.

Quick question:

We're doing 1 night at HRH (before moving to AKV, over at Disney) so we can do IOA on check out day.

What's the most efficient way to go from HRH to IOA? Walking? And what do they offer for transportation service (water taxi or shuttle bus) from HRH to IOA?

walking will take you about 6 minutes.

if you take the water taxi, you are let out at the dock in city walk and still have a walk up the stairs to over the bridge to the entrance of IOA.


i would go with the walking

I had been to the hard rock hotel a few years back. And the experience was great. The ambiance and the service are good.

A couple of questions

I have been searching for a while now so I thought I would just go ahead and ask you smart people.

So, even if I have an annual pass - I still have to pay to park at the hotels (HRH) if I am staying there?
I saw somewhere that you can get this validated at a restaurant, is that correct?
How would that work?

Come to think of it - do you mind going over my plans with me to see if I my plans are good and cost-effective?

This trip is me, DH and DS (23) - we have never been.
We will be there 12/7-12/11.
1) AP Preferred
2) 3 day 1 park passes (from Costco possibly?)
4) nights @ HRH 2 Queen GV
1) AA pass - hoping for an upgrade to pool view.

Eating at a sit down once a day and a fast food once a day, I have allowed $200 per day for food.

I hope I put this in the right thread - thanks so much in advance!
Kelley
