We always buy a disposable cooler, milk, beer, juice, water and couple pops. Ice is free so we restock ice daily and add additional beer, juice etc. It's like camping and it's our vacation ritual to find the ice The cooler is small so remember when you buy your milk - you may be only able to add one or two additional items and just keep rotating. Ahhhh happy times

I´d like to know if anyone who has recently stayed at Club Level can tell me if they have added anything to their breakfast offerings ( the info on this thread posted about CL breakfast was from awhile back).

Thanks!

Kim

The same for us. We stayed at HR for two nights this past June and not having the fridge was the tricky situation. I know another poster suggested a disposable cooler and that would very well indeed. We however used a cold/freezer bag like you would get from Sam's. It folded up nicely into the luggage and was easy for transport. We didn't use it for more than milk and water bottles. We did put some ice into the bag as well to keep it colder but it worked like a charm. Not sure I would want to do this for more than a couple of days after that a cooler might be better. For just a short time this worked out well.

Enjoy your trip!

We usually take our plug in cooler. But since this year, I am on a preventative medication and my husband is on Humira and both require a frig, we will just get a fridge at the hotel. I am told they waive the fee when it is require for medical reasons. We LOVE our cooler that plugs in...it is like have a frig with a door on top! But hauling it on the train going down is not a fun idea.

we use a collapsable cooler all the time. it flattens to the bottom of our suitcase and wen we get there we fill it with ice and usually milk and some water and just replenish the ice for the whole week...it works perfectly.

Booking meals

Hi

We'll be at HRH next year before our 2 weeks at Disney! Can you reserve a table in any of the City Walk eateries? I know can't at Bubba Gump, but what about others?

Thanks!

We stayed at HRH in 2004 and 2006.
I think we are going back next summer.
In 2004 we had a deluxe room and in 2006 a deluxe cl room.

I remember when we had the cl room there was a discount for
renting a cabana. Is that still the case? What are the prices
for cabana rentals these days?

Thanks!

you can't reserve a year out for the restaurants.
30 days out i know you can reserve.

if you are going in a holiday time period, maybe you can book prior to the 30 days out.

call and you can get the rates. no idea if rates for 2012 will increase at this point.

yes, there is a discount on the cabanas when you are staying club level.

US/IOA Resort Newbie here....

First off Hello to All,

Thank you for the great information in this thread. I have a few questions about the HRH. Hoping I can get some help here. We are planning to visit US/IOA and have decided early entry and FOTL is more than worth the resort cost for your short 2 night stay.
My questions are:

1. What meal options are available @ HRH. Are there any quick service places on the property?

2. Are there any resort maps (simlar to what Disney give at check in) to see the layout of the resort?

3. Are there gift shops?

4. Is there a HRH photo thread somoeone could point me in the direction of?

Thanks so much in advance,

We're going to be arriving right around dinner time at the Hard Rock.

Any suggestions for good, family friendly (2 adults, 3 kids) places to eat around the area, but not in the parks? The Hard Rock Cafe, itself, might be a bit too high energy (ie: LOUD) after a 20 hour drive.

Thinking about doing Bubba Gumps at Citiwalk....but wondering if there are better suggestions in the area.

I find the HR restaurant relaxing, but the music can be loud at times. The HR hotel has the Kitchen restaurant that we loved, it's nice and quiet.
