HRH club - What time does it open?

I can see it says 7.30 on the website, but I'm sure I read somewhere they unlock the lounge at 7.00?

I'm thinking about early entry into WWoHP. We're going at Easter and we really need to make that early entry if we can.

My kids are 16, 14 and 12 so will happily do a grab and go breakfast, so I'm hoping we can cover all bases and get breakfast early, get into the parks early and get Harry done early.

Is it doable do you think?

they can open it early at 7 but the foods would not be out necessarily.

each hotel can handle it differently.
open at 7:30 and have all the foods out and ready
or
open at 7:00 and set up the food counters by 7:30.


suggest you call and talk to concierge to get the correct information from them.



i have stayed at club and always by passed the breakfast offerings due to early entry.

We were there last week, and the club lounge was not open in time to eat before leaving for early access to Harry Potter. And since getting the Express Pass and early entry were a key part of wanting to stay on-site, it turned out that paying for club level offerings was not a very good deal for us at all.

In fact, we were hugely disappointed with the price-value of what we received. The room was only average, and the food offerings in the lounge were mediocre at best (the evening spread was crackers and cheese, a large heated pan of rice, taco chips and salsa, and a veggie tray).

i have enjoyed the evening foods at rph better than the ones at hrh.
i found more of a variety and better sweet hour period.

sorry you were disappointed in the evening foods at club.


both have a nice breakfast lay out but the 5-7 food offerings for me, are better at rph.
maybe it was due to the dates i went, dunno........

i have not done club at portofina so no comments on how their spread is.

Thanks for the replies folks.

Club just isn't worth it for us if that's the case. Breakfast was the number one reason for doing it.

The more I think about it the more I feel we'll be slaves to it.

We'll spend our money on a bigger room instead
