Lemme think....I have a pic from our group on Spidey....a pic of some of us on MIB, on Dudley, some of us on Jaws, Poseidon, from the queue and instructional part of Simpsons.... Oh...have lots of pix from being ON Popeye....

I'd have to skim back thru my TRs to see all what I have.

I keep my camera in my pocket so it's always handy

Thumbs up Awesome!

Thank you Bubba's Mom for taking the time to help us newbies navigate our way. This thread should be a sticky.

nah...doesn't deserve a sticky.

but i remember being a noobie around here. To this day, I'm still very good friends with the first few ppl who really helped me.

I always try to remember to put pictures in my TR or mention things I see people posting about.

I will never forget how helpful people were to me...I'm just stickin around and paying it forward.

besides....all the pix & info help US remember our trips in greater detail too.

Bubba's Mom, I want to thank you again for taking the time to post the pictures. Even though we ended up staying in HRH, it turned out to be a very useful shortcut for us as well. It definitely cut 2-3 minutes off the standard scenic path. One time we went for dinner off site after leaving Universal Studios. We headed straight to our car and we estimated it was short 4 minutes walk. Awesome!

My DH was impressed. I don't think I will hear any more complains about spending too much time on disboards .

Ty. That was helpful! I'm putting my DD 12 in charge of the directions. I get lost in the mall.

We just returned from Portofino yesterday. We always took the Water Taxi. We stayed in the West wing. I don't think we ever waited longer than 5 minutes for the taxi. It was very well organized. They always had 2 taxis going and it was very convenient.

Thanks for the great post! We are going in December and will be staying onsite. Question for the OP - how did you get a AAA rate? I can't seem to get that rate when I try online. Thanks!

You can't book it online from the Universal or Loews site. You either have to call the hotel or AAA or book online at AAA.

Great shortcut tip

Does the shortcut work well for people staying at HRH too, or is it no quicker than the regular walkway from HRH.

Is there a quicker internal access to the side car parks, than from the lobby at the HRH

it's no quicker because you can exit the hotel thru the pool area...you wouldn't go out the lobby door and then walk around the outside of the hotel

There used to be a gate behind the pool slide that we always took. I think they closed that gate though.

That was dumb if they did... You used to need a key for it, so why close it?

I know we tried to use it and couldn't but can't remember the exact reason.
