1733, 1731, 1729, 1727 etc....are all facing the park (IOA). View of the Hulk from your room. If you look down, you can see the waterway the boats take to the parks... Pool view is other side of the hall.

I had a question about the room numbers you just mentioned. The numbers (1733, 1731, 1729, 1727) are they from a standard room? Do you recommend a room with a good view from a standard room? I guess I need to soon put my request in. Also, how much in advance do we need to put in a request for a good room. Is the standard rooms overlooking the park the best view ??? Thanks for some room number suggestions.

They are standard. Ours (1729) was 2 queens.

I prefer park/garden view over pool view...but, that's me.

As for a request, I faxed it a few weeks before we went, but I was told they never got it...the fax went to the business center. I asked for 1733 when I checked in, and was told n/a. So, I asked her to keep checking along those lines. Explained it was our first visit and I was trying to impress my family She came up with 2 doors down = 1729.

yeah...I was a pita to her, I'm sure....but, I work hard and save for my vacations and I was going to get as close to what I wanted as I could.

Question Want a view of IOA but need the convenience of tower 3 I think!

1st timer to US. We are going to stay at the Royal pacific. I see the majority of the posts saying that tower 1 has all the view of IOA. I have read that tower three is closest to bus transportation and water taxi and due to a recent medical problem I am limited with walking. Is there a great view from tower 3 and IOA and how long exactly is the walk from tower 1 to the water taxi or bus. Thank you very much.

I have another quick question. Are the rooms you mentioned(1733, 1731, 1729, 1727) close to the water boat taxi? I know that you said it was park view. If not, what room would you suggest for park view closest to the boat taxi? (standard room) Thanks again for the suggestions.

I believe Tower 3 is closest to the boat dock, but we always walk and have always stayed in Tower 1...so, anything regarding Tower 3, I can't help...sorry. I do know you can cut thru the pool to get to the boat...it's really not that far. Matter of fact, any Tower at RPR really isn't that far from the boat dock...it's all very close.

I need some advice for my upcoming trip and our 1st time to US. We got a standard room and we wanted a park view (preferably a view of the Hulk) and a tower closest to the water taxi. I was just wondering if room 1729 or around there is my best bet? If not what would be my best choice? Thanks for any suggestions.

We just returned from our CL stay in room 3705. It was a short walk from the elevators and the club. It did not have a tub but a nice walk in shower. Our view was of the Luau area, lush greenery and the highways. Tower 3 was very convenient to everything. RPR is a beautiful resort.

This was our view from room 1531. The exact view we wanted, so we were happy bunnies

Loved looking out to this first thing in the morning, and it was lovely lit up at night.

Fantastic room and view, will be asking for this room next year if we can

We have stayed at Club Level in Tower 3 for our vacation (before our visit to Disney)for the past 4 years. We have always had a fabulous pool/park view and enjoyed it very much. The selection of choices for breakfast is wonderful as well as the items that we were offered in the early evening, salads, crackers, cheeses, dips, fresh vegetables ( wonderful) as well as a choice of beer and wine. I heard a rumor that the evening offerings has been eliminated--anyone know if its true or not? We will be there on the 10 through the 12 of October.

We had 1529 (right next door) last summer and loved the view there too. We have been all over in tower 1 and 3 and they have all been fine. We really don't spend too much time in the rooms.

We stayed in September this year in room 1719. Two beds and a lovely view of the Hulk. Below the window we could see the boats docked in their berths overnight and then see them chug out in the mornings to start work. One minute to the lifts, straight down to ground floor then about a two and a half minute stroll past the pool to the boat or another 30 seconds to the bus. Loved this hotel, clean all through, friendly staff, good food.
