Faxing RPR

Hey everyone, I just read through this thread. It's great and very helpful! I especially liked Bubba's Mom's pic of her room location.

A few quick questions: Does Universal still accept faxes with room requests? WDW stopped accepting them a few years back, so I was wondering if Universal still does.

Also, how far in advance can you fax? I'm taking DD13 on a Disneycruise first, then we're going to Universal for a little mother-daughter roller coaster bonding time (which is difficult to find when her 2 younger sibs are around, lol). Can I fax before we leave for the cruise (which would be a little more than a week ahead of time) or would that be too early?

Finally, do all the park view rooms in Tower 1 also have good fireworks views? Do they have fireworks every night? Although we've had many trips to WDW, this will be our first time at Universal, so it's all new to us!

yes, they do, but I would call instead of fax. the faxed requests go to the business center, not the front desk

you can call and add the request to your res anytime...today if you want

no...not all are a good view of the parks. fireworks are few and limited to the 360 show at the Studios. you won't see them from the RPR

Thanks for the info. Some of the older threads talk about seeing fireworks from their rooms in Tower 1. I wondered if that was still the case. Guess not.

They really cut back the fireworks because of Harry Potter and RRR construction....I don't know how anyone could see them anyhows...I didn't think they were all THAT high to begin with

I was in tower 3 a few years ago and loved the pool view. It must have been on the 6th floor.

from reading this thread, I thought a great view of the hulk and Dr Doom would be way cooler so I opted for tower 1 for this last trip 8/3-8/9/08

RP did not get my fax with my requests, but I brought the page and the confirmation of receipt with me. I requested tower 1, 7th floor, and was able to get 1652.

Yes, one side of tower one gives you a view of a few of the rides, but it is not like how previous posters had presented it, at least to me. I did not feel like I could "Lay in bed and look at the hulk".. You really have to stretch to see the rides still.

You also have a view of the street with these tower one rooms and I am not so fond of that.

I just thought I would throw that out there, and let people know that myself I will stick with tower three because I can get a tranquil view of the pool, plus be closer to the water taxi.

I appreciate all of the tips that I read before my trip!

First visit to RPR .. Not a good impression but here goes

First room assigenment was room 1232 ( I believe this is the right number) well we got to the room to find the "pool /water" view is a view of over grown plants and trees. Also to find a puddle of water soaking the run in front of our door. I was very unhappy.

Went to the front desk to voice my displeasure and they moved us to 3525 . This is our view ...
cheap WebHosting

Not the worst view at all and much better then room number one. I am still favoring the HRH though ..

Stayed at RPR 8/16-8/22 (during tropical storm Fay )

Tower #1, Room #1327(lobby level), Room Type std view, 2 queens

Checked in at 11:30am. Asked for room upgrade but they had no water view room for 8/20 and we didn't want to keep moving rooms. Also didn't want to wait until 4:00 for a higher floor, so took a room that was ready then.

Turned our room was great. We like being on lobby level, less elevators to deal with. We liked Tower 1 as we walked to the park each morning. I think we had the only room on the third floor whose view was not blocked by a tree. We had an open view of the Hulk and the waterway, so we could tell each day if the rollercoaster's were working and the water taxis were running (because of Fay). Luckily there was no lightning, so the rides were running, and the wind was only bad enough one day to stop the water taxis.

Are all the club level rooms on the same floor/in the same tower? What views do they have?
Has anyone ever been lucky enough to get an up-grade of any description at RPR? Do they do anything special for b'days/anniversary etc?
This will be our first stay, so want it to be good!!!

Tower 2 has the pet rooms (that's all I know). Request you be put NOT in Tower 2 due to your son's reaction to them (may as well call it an allergy)....they should note it on your reservation and you should not end up in Tower 2.
