budget hotel and Loews should never be used in the same sentence.

If they did allow pool hopping that could be a crowd issue at the other hotels.

For instance, say the new hotel is 3/4 booked
thats 1350 rooms
4 people to a room-5,400
say only 1/2 them pool hop, thats 2,700 pool hoppers.

of course that is just a speculation. Maybe they can build
such a awesome pool area(s) at the new hotel that guests
from the other 3 will pool hop over there.

Since the hotel appears to be quite a ways from the other hotels, I doubt many people will bother to pool hop.

A new hotel that does not offer EP?? Not worth it in my book! I do not even stay at the Hard Rock anymore since it does not allow Lowes First! It would stink if they stared EMH instead of the EP..we'll have to wait and see!

Not gonna happen. They are simply responding to market demand for a "value" resort.

Did I miss when the hotel will be complete? We're planning a 2014 trip and would like to get an idea when we can book and if this will be open.

We're also planning on doing a 3 or 4 day cruise afterwards and will mostly donut during the off season.

We considered staying off site anyway, so this is a great option for us.

i was able to get pictures of the construction site while i was at RPH.


I'm guessing the value hotels will be under construction for this coming year.
don't know if they will be open in 2014, haven't heard a projected date yet for when they will open.


they won't have express or early entry from what i have heard.

And from what I remember reading someplace....

They won't have express (As obviously the increased guest capacity would break the system).... But there is a good chance they will have Early Entry.

My personal hypothesis is that Universal, upon the completion of this hotel, Will end up eliminating the existing Partner Hotel program which allows Early Entry with certain nearby off-site properties. They will then offer the Early entry and the new hotel as the likely net increase in guest capacity will likely be nothing between the new hotel and the removal of the partner hotels.

As what i heard about the new hotels, early entry was not in the picture.

One of the hotels, as rumors go, will be similar to the extended stay set ups, which would be good for larger families.

That would be my guess as well. And with the new rides going in at USF, there would be early admission to both parks.

I think in order to make this hotel a go, it needs to have at least the EE perk.

I did not read that you could pool hop if staying at the Value resort, or maybe i missed it, but why allow pool hopping from a Value resort to deluxe resort. If this was the case i might consider staying there, and booking into RPR or 1 of the others when we decided to do the parks for the FOTL passes for 1 or 2 nights

The new Universal Cabana Bay Resort

Does anyone know what the new resort will look like? Is it going to be a value hotel or more of the really nicer upscale like the 3 in existence?

Its supposed to be value/moderate prcing and family suites.It is supposed to look like the old fashioned motorcourt style motels..It supposedly will NOT come with the Express pass for resort guest perks but will likely have early entry

We already have a thread on this subject.

I'm going to combine the two.

Time to re-stick this thread.

I won't be staying at this resort either but I'm not their target guest.

I just hope they have some cool pools and we can hop to them!
Yep HP themed hotel at Hogwarts would be super cool. I would love to see a Jurassic Park one too. I really don't get the whole not including fast passes, it better be way cheaper if that's the case.
