all 3 onsite hotels are good.

not sure what you are asking........are you stating you have a package with UO? Are you asking if the package is a good deal?
if that is your question, i find booking everything separate is better.
better cancellation policy, easier to purchase park tickets outside of UO, etc.

my opinion is IOA and the Studios are great!

Just wondering about how good the hotel is and is it worth the package price when you stay in one of the inside hotels for the park tickets and how is the weather in Florida Round that time

TRU DAT!!!
One of the BEST sandwiches I ever ate!

Hard Rock is awesome!-(as are all of the Universal On sites!)

We don't "bundle" our trips, seems better to go with individual purchases...at least for us.

The Hard Rock has a great pool. We discovered that because you can pool hop if you stay at one of the three resorts.

We stayed @ HRH Thanksgiving night last year & went to the parks for 1 1/2 days. We liked it so much, we decided to return. We're here right now with my husband's family & are staying for 5 nights. We're all having a great time! The in-laws are very impressed with the hotel & we all love how close it is to the parks & City Walk. My 10 yr old niece was amazed at how fancy the bathroom near the lobby was. It has couches & tables in it. The kids love the pool & my mother-in-law commented on how beautiful the landscaping is.

It is difficult to choose when it isn't going to rain. Early December is very nice for low crowds.

Both the Hard Rock and Royal Pacific are within easy walking distance.

We never purchase a package. Purchasing individually is cheaper and you can make changes without any fees.

I stayed at HRH last Thanksgiving and just this past week. The weather was beautiful both times. During our 5 night stay this past week, it only rained for about 20 minutes our whole trip and then it rained when we were at the airport about to return home. The temperature each day was very comfortable (highs in the 70s, lows in the 60s). As far as crowds go, even last Thanksgiving, we didn't think it was that bad (especially compared to Disney World which we visited before our stay at HRH). Since we stayed onsite, we had the express pass and didn't have to wait long for the rides.

You should be fine weather and crowd wise whether you go in November or December. Keep in mind if you are interested in seeing the Christmas Parade, you should plan on going in December since it doesn't begin until then. I wish we could have gone then for that reason.
