Royal Pacific Full

Tried to book the RPH for the week of Jan. 28 to 30, but no rooms avaiable. Does any one know why. There are rooms avaiable the next week Feb. 4-6. Which week would be better? Thanks

I'm not sure why but I would recommend that you keep trying. I've looked up rates for my dates 11/9-11/14 many times to see if the price might go down. Some of the times I checked it showed no rooms available. Then, I'd check again a couple days later and there were many room types available at all the resorts.

go during the time period that they do have available rooms.
you can always try to switch your dates if you are within the cancellation time period.



for some time periods, travel companies will book a block of rooms for their packages.
they do release the rooms back to the hotel if they can't book them.

that could be anywhere to a month or couple of weeks out, it can vary.

Conventions

Do Conventions usually effect crowd levels at the parks? Citywalk at night?

In all my stays, Conventions have never effected the parks or Citywalk, and esp the hotel pool aarea can be quiet aas they are usually at their meetings during the day, although can be more than usual at the pool in the evenings

I second this. I normally see them walking around dressed in suits and badges. You might see more in the lounges and restaurants at night.

I have a reservation 1/26-1/28. I was going to add a day (the 29th) but it showed no availability. Maybe if you move your dates just a little, you might find an availability.
