Do you know if they will do anything special for Birthday's (18th) and/or
20th wedding anniversary, should we mention this to them? we already have a kids suite reserved so not sure there is much upgrading possible.

at the hotel:
you can order a cake in advance.
contact the hotel and pay for it in advance.

you can tell them what day and time you want it brought to your room.

at the parks:

go to guest services and request a birthday sticker to wear.
you never know what will happen be letting it be known of your special day.

probably not.


i have stayed in king suites for the past 5 years at rph.

last year on the upper floor, they changed one suite to a regular room.

i had the suite near the elevators.


for the lower floors,
maybe they were untouched....?

so to answer your question, maybe it depends on the tower you are staying if the king suites will be close to each other.

i stayed in tower 3 last year and the suites were not close to each other.

Ok so let me get this straight because I just booked a waterview room which is more expensive....I am paying extra for a view of a pool and won't see the park? So I am better off switching to a standard for a better view? I am so confused,lol. HELP!!!!

Some are saying that the rooms in the 1700's are water and park views and some say they are just park views. Are they standard or upgraded water views?

I may need to call and switch my rate! I don't want to request a room on that floor but pay for an upgrade. Good thing I am not going until November!

We are booked in a Waterview room which says: Gaze out at the spectacular lagoon pool or catch the breathtaking sunset over the waterways that connect the resort to the theme parks. So I am really hoping for the theme park view.
Does anyone know which rooms DO have a view of the waterways that connect the resort to the theme parks as opposed to a pool view?

Thanks!

if you requested a water view:

if you are in tower 2, you can get a view of the water canal.
if you are in towers 1 or 3, you have a variety of water views.

the pools or the water canal that you are transported on or the water taxi dock.

let me find the chart that will show you the location of the rooms at rph.
it might take me a few minutes to pull it up.

i'll pm it to you when i find it.

could be part of the view of the park, the highway, the grounds, the canal, the pool, parking garage, front entrance, etc, really depends on which tower you are in.


there could be more highway views in tower 2.

even numbers in T3 stretching down the hallway from the elevators, usually have the better views in my opinion.
maybe i shouldn't say that as the hotel does have different wings to it.
