As of today!!!

I just checked on this today. The best rate is the Entertainment Rate $110 and next is the AP rate of $129 with an automatic upgrade to water view. The $99 rate ends on the 10th!

You may also want to try the internet web site for universal studios. I think they are running a special also.

DANO1182,It's yes to all your questions.Resort pools are around 4 feet- 5 feet at the deep end. They do have outside bars and eating.When im at the hard rock i lay in the water with my drink.They are loose in what you do.Remember they are trying not to be like disney.

We just stayed there on Friday night. It was wonderful - much better than the WDW resorts. All the staff were very helpful to us. Of course it might have helped to be two old ladies. Everyone was very friendly - Spicey (my cat) got to stay in the room and he LOVED it. We had a wonderful view of the main pool room 1624 - it was GREAT!

he liked walking around (I carried him through the pool area - I don't know what people who have big pets do). He could walk along the path to IOA behind the resort. and he almost did -

We did not go to the parks (raining) - so I don't know if I would have to drive him to their kennel or what? Some people actually left their pets in their rooms. at the front desk they give you a pager to contact you if they need to get in your room or if your pet is causing problems.

Anyway it was GREAT!!!

That's great. We used to travel with our cat before we had kids and did not have any family around to babysit him. He stayed in Chicago at the Omni and other places. He was not too fond of it. I love Loews and had no idea they accepted pets. They are great. I am glad you enjoyed it and I can't wait.

they are great hotels for pets - no extra charge (sometimes I have paid more for his stay than ours) - and they encourage you to bring your animals - he had a blast - he really enjoyed looking out of the window - we were on the 6th floor - so he got a great view of the pool and the birds flying over head.

Since we had come from WDW - where he stayed in the FW kennel - this was quite a change for him - but he really like people (I know strange cat) and unless they don't like him (you know I am sure that some people are afraid of cats) - he will go up to them. So he got alot of petting from strangers (well they were strangers to me). He is on a leash - but he is a very friendly cat.

i also would like to know

I have a ressie for last week in june at rph with entertainment card discount. Can anyone tell me specifics about reasturants at the universal properties. Would it be better to eat off property, bring food from home, or eat at resorts?

Also what's the deal with parking.. Am I correct in the understanding that you pay to park at the HOTEL.

Last question, how was security at the park entrance. Do they check you for snack( chips, crackers, juice, etc.)?

Thanks for the help

steph

Cool Transfers to RPH?

Two questions:

Does the RPH van pick up at the Amtrak station in Orlando or just from the airport?

After staying at Universal for three days we will be moving over to a Disney hotel for the remaindr of our vacation, will the RPH transfer us over there?
Thanks, Terriann

I don't think RPH will transfer you to Disney - I would call the hotel and check.

the restuarant were similar to WDW restuarants - a little less expensive - but the wait was horrible - if it was not raining we would have definitely left - I will try to remember to post the menus on my yahoo and then link here.

Our Easter Stay

We stayed at PP for easter weekend.Overall We loved the hotel.
It was very nice and the staff was very helpful.
The kids loved the necklaces and pails and shovels given at check in.
I will opt for something other than fruit platter as welcome gift next time.

The kids loved the pool and boat .(I like a little deeper water).
The priority passes for the attractions was Great.The only way to go.
Tchop Tchop was one of the best meals we have ever had.Excellent.

The room was a bit tight for us but not unbearable we will get 2 rooms next time.

The only bad experiece was the sevice poolside.It was Terrible.We were informed by our waiter that he "Just put our order in "at least a half hour after we first placed it.The food and drinks came about 30-45 minutes later and you guesssed it the order was incomplete.The rest of the order came in another half hour.This was for burgers ,cokes and a couple of beers.
To make matters worse I waiter was not happy that I went to the bar poolside and got drinks myself during the wait.
The staff at the bar were very good.

We will stay here again next time.

P.S.Best rate was entertainment rate 125 easter weekend not bad

Yes, Muffy. RPR does have Club Level rooms. I haven't stayed, but we did have a Club room booked. We cancelled and rebooked at the HRH Club Level.

I got a brochure from getawaytoday.com that has the RP listed for $569 for 2 nights including tickets!! Up to 3 kids stay free, as do other adults in the room...They say the price is per room, not per person...has anyone used them before? We're thinking of trying this in Sept. I would love to hear from anyone who has used them.
