We haven't been to US/IOA since 2006 so forgive me if this question is common knowledge to everyone but me!

We are doing a room only reservation to RPR as we can get our tickets with our AMEX points. Is the Harry Potter breakfast only available if you book a package? Also I just recently saw on the Universal website about a dinner/guaranteed seating at Lombards for the new nighttime show. Does this have to be booke through a package too?

One more question - since we are getting our tickets through AMEX member points would we be allowed to use the AMEX lounge?

Thanks so much - this thread has been so helpful!

It used to be but now the three broomsticks is open to anyone for breakfast - its about 15.00 per person.

Also I just recently saw on the Universal website about a dinner/guaranteed seating at Lombards for the new nighttime show. Does this have to be book through a package too?

You can book separately and it is worth it - I have seen the show - its spectacular!

Not sure - call universal to ask.

You can make reservations by calling (877) 801-9720 but it doesn't start until June 1st.

I found information on the website:

http://www.universalorlando.com/Rest...er-Dining.aspx

It's near the bottom of the page.

You can book these at Guest Services at the hotel. Yes, you can just show your card to use the AMEX lounge.

How do you get reservations without the package. I called this morning and no on at Universal seems to know anything about this! I got transferred to packages then reservations then dining then guest services. The last girl I talked to said that it has just changed but she has no information on it and that the only way to do it is to walk up to guest services and book it the day of! I might as well go to the concierge then!

On the packages page it still says you can book the Harry Potter package with breakfast for use up to Dec. 2012 but you have to book by July 31. Wonder what the scoop is.

Payment Types Accepted?

OK so I see lots of good choices to eat. Does anyone know how to find out what places accept Universal Gift Cards?

The countdown commences with only 16 days to go! Holy Cow I am not even close to prepared for this
