I had booked directly with Univ if I recall correctly with an entertainment rate.

room request question

I booked a king deluxe at Portofino directly through universal. When I requested West side with balcony they told me they would make a note but couldn't guarantee it and that it would depend on whether it was available when we arrive. Does anyone have any tips on how I can increase my chances? Also, do all balconies face the bay or pools? Thanks!

Some say at the Disney hotels to fax your room requests 4 days before your arrival. If I remember correctly the wing faces both sides because it runs between the beach pool and the bay(boatdock area). You may want to check me on this one and make sure I'm not thinking of the villa wing. Don't get your hopes up for a balcony there are very few. Either way you can't go wrong at this hotel. All views seem lovely and there are many outdoor places to sit if you don't get one of those "cherished" balconies.

I've tried the fax route at PBH at least 4 times without any luck. The best bet is at check in and I haven't done well there either!

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knew the best way for a discount during August.

We stayed at the HRH two years ago and got an awesome rate with the Entertainment card. My wife would really like to try the Portofino Bay. I called Universal and they told me they don't do Entertainment book discounts anymore. The best they could do was AAA for about $255 for a Garden View.

Any suggestions.

Thanks

Jim

Call and ask what the Preferred Annual Passholders rate is. It is usually a pretty substantial discount. If you find a great rate, buy the PAP online before you go. Then you can also get discounts with the PAP on park tickets for the rest of your family, 20% off all merchandise, food discounts, free parking, etc., etc.

Room recommendations

Hi! My husband and I will be staying at the Portofino end of May. I requested a Deluxe King on the West Side after reading many helpful posts here. Just wondering if any of you have stayed in a particular room that you really loved and would reccomend. Something romantic - maybe had a view of water with balcony. I know these are few and far in between but I figure it never hurts to ask right? Thanks!

Someone on this thread mentioned a king room with a bay view room 2333(not sure if its a deluxe). You can check with PBH by calling them directly and ask about bay view rooms and numbers.
