Free appy/dessert still at Tchoup?

Anybody know if they are still doing this with your Universal ticket? Universal's RPH site still shows it, but when you click on the link it shows a expiration date of 12/31/12. Anybody recently been? We'll be eating there in a few weeks...

Well, I certainly hope it's the same. I love fruit trays and salads.

Meal Plan

Is it worth getting the meal plan in Universal? We r going for 3 days and was thinking about getting the meal plan for 2 and not the third because we want to go do the Harry Potter thing.

The meal plan is very limited. There are three counter serve restaurants in each park that you are allowed to eat from and they have entrees that you are allowed to order. Breakfast is not included.

What you need to do is check out the entree menus from those restaurants (they are all on the first page of this thread) and see if that will do you. I would only get it for one day to start and then decide from there if you like it.

It doesn't include any of the Citywalk restaurants or any sit down restaurants in the parks.

Thank you ~ is the food good from those places? We figured we'd do quick stuff so we have more time for the rides and such and then do a sit down thing at Harry Potter.

They are basic fast food, not bad for fast food, but think wendys or mcdonalds more or less, although they are probably better than mcdonalds, but basic burger places. I personally wouldn't recommend it, but as for me a big part of visiting Universal is eating at the nice restaurants such as Mythos, awesome place, that is a big part of it for me. And there are many more top notch restaurants at Universal. Universal has probably the best sit down restaurants for any theme park, unless you are on a super tight budget I would highly recommend checking out the nice restaurants.

I agree. There are better counter service restaurants than the ones offered. Places like Three Broomsticks, Thunder Falls Terrace and Boulangerie are very good and aren't offered. Nothing wrong with trying it for a day though. The stuff you like might be very good!

Meal Deal a good value?

I'm planning a trip for May for a family of 4 and wanted to get feedback on whether the Meal Deal was a good value or not. There's me, my wife, son age 12, and daughter age 9. Depending on the size of the kids meals, we may purchase an adult Deal for my daughter.

Any thoughts? Suggestions?

Is it necessary to make reservations at the restaurants in September? We're going the second week of Sept. and thinking of going to a restaurant inside of Portofino Hotel (where we're staying) on a Thursday night and a restaurant in CityWalk on Friday. Am I reading that right that by showing your hotel key you get seated quicker if you don't have a reservation?

going after labor day weekend will be a slow time in the parks.


if you have 6 or more in your group, you might want to think about ressies for city walk.

your hotel key will give you priority for any waits at some of the restaurants in CW.


you won't have a worry eating at pbh without a ressie for the weekday.
