jama, RPR does have a gift shop. They do have snacks and drinks, I'm not sure about milk. The manager of that place used to post on this board, if he is still around maybe he can tell you for sure.

The RPR gift shops carried plenty of snacks, drinks, meds., etc. when we were there in July.......but no milk. We solved the problem by buying individual bottles of milk at the many cafeteria-style restaurants throughout both parks. We just took one of those little soft lunch packs and the milk stayed cold enough to bring back to the hotel and put on ice in the room for later. If I remember correctly, white, choc., and strawberry were available in the parks.

I want the suitcase bag with the RPR logo from the gift shop. I was too scared to even look at the price.

2004 Entertainment rates (December)

I booked two days in December (3rd and 4th) this past Saturday (2/7) and got an Entertainment rate of $152. I was disappointed that it was this high - I had been hoping for something in the $110 - $120 range based upon posts on this board.

Do these rates fluctuate throughout the year? The reservationist let me know that I could call in and get the lower rate if it was available. Any idea on when rates may change?

TIA.

Pool

Is the RP pool heated? I was there when it was warm, so I do not know. Also are there any fireworks this weekend?

Cool What tower to stay, upgrading ?

Set to go in June 2004 (7th to 11th) at the RPR. This is our first time there. (Stayed HR last year)
Looking for comments on what tower you stayed in, and any other comments that might be of use to a first-timer.
I also have a Lowe's card (from last years stay). Has anyone received a "free" upgrade if rooms were plentyful ??

Thanks !!

p.s. Need to spread the word on this thread. No postings for weeks (between Dec and Feb) ??

Hopefully I can answer some questions I see posted here:

If you reserved a garden view room at RPR and would like a theme park view, request Tower 1. You aren't guaranteed to get the view but your view from Tower 1 will be better than some of the views (I-4, parking lots,etc...) from the other 2 towers. One drawback to Tower 1 is that it is the farthest away from the Water Taxi. Tower 3 is closest to the dock.

On our last stay, we requested a room upgrade and were offered one for part of our stay but the hotel was booked for our last night so we would have had to change rooms, therefore we declined. Do ask if there are upgrades available. It can't hurt. We are Loews Blue by the way.

The pool was nice and warm in January! The temps were in the upper 60's- mid 70's during our stay and the kids and hubby really enjoyed the pool.

Hope that helps ya'll!

Talking Thank you, thank you!!

Hi posters!

I've been trying to organize a trip to Universal for my husband and I for our 5th anniversary. The Universal hotels looked beautfiul but were a little out of our price range for the trip. I thought for sure that we would stay offsite, but the buzz about the front of the line access made the Loews hotels look pretty good!

Thanks to all of your tips, we were able to book a great room at the Royal Pacific for only $119/night under the entertainment rate - and the card only cost me $15!! So thanks again for saving me $70 a night!

Stephanie

Question Club room

We will be staying at RPR for the first time July 1-3, at club level. I was just wondering if there is a club room in each tower or just one, and if so which tower? Thanks.

Club

Club is in the Royal Tower or Tower 3 closest to the water taxi and close to the pool. The rooms are on the top floor with various views. They have std, king suite and Presidential type suites. The lounge in at end of the hall where it splits and is wonderful.
