I haven't been able to dig up this information, can you ship a box ahead of time to HRH like you can to Disney hotels?

Thanks!

Question about charging to hotel key card

So I am coming down for our first PBH stay. We usually do Disney, and have not done US in several years. I do know we can use our room key to charge meals (which is awesome as I paid in full at booking and have since got a APH rate-so resort credit ). Is there a list somewhere of quick service/fast food spots at the hotels/parks/CityWalk that do or do not accept credit cards/hotel charging?

Thanks in advance for any and all info!

Does anyone know what is the earliest time you can stop by the front desk on your check in day to receive your room key? I remember going a few years ago and i arrived around 9 A.M. and while my room wasn't ready yet, I was still able to get a room key to use in the parks for that day. I will be arriving earlier this time...around 7 A.M. to be exact. I am wondering if they will issue me a room key that early so I can use it for the fast pass

i know you can check in at 6 am as i have done that before.

why don't you call the day before you are going to do an early check in so the documents can be ready for you when you arrive.


i answered differently on this question than i did on the other same post you had in another thread.

that's because i remembered i called prior to make sure someone could have my info all set up when i arrived.

the front desk always has someone available for you to check in.

there are many guests that check in way after midnight.

The pool is normally open until 11:00pm. Yes, there is a pool side bar and grill, Bula Bar and Grill.

If you can't book online, you can try giving them a call.

I would call them, but I don't reside in the States. So, the long distance phone charges would be really, really high. I'll just have to wait till Universal opens their booking dates for Dec 2012. Sigh... Hopefully, it won't be too long a wait.

i don't know the answer to this question.

one of my friends stayed at hrh 6 years ago and had to pay a charge on something that was delivered and held for her.

i don't know if it was the policy then or that if it was held for a week before her arrival.
i tend to think this might have been the issue.

i read what others have said but if it were me, i would call and ask to speak to the front end manager to find the correct answer.

for the two Loews hotels, no hotel charges to have something sent ahead to wait for your arrival.

Thinking about getting an AP to get the rate at HRH. (RPH is sold out of standard rooms for AP and SMSM rates.) We arrive at MCO about 11:30. Will they let me check in with the online voucher? If not, any suggestions? I don't want to pay to park at the parks and the hotel. Also, do you think RPH will open up? I really am gritting my teeth at Universal's hotel rates. Not use to high class hotel rates. TIA!

Yes, they will let you check in with the voucher. Sometimes more rates open up, it is tough to tell. For September for quite a while there were no standard room at PBH with the AP rate and now there seem to be lots for our dates. The RPR had quite a few at $139 and now I see that those are gone.

Thanks. We are looking 10/17 - 20, so I know HHN are an issue. I was looking at RPR and all of a sudden, it disappeared, so I thought I better book HRH. (I am a total Universal newbie, in case you didn't guess....)
