I booked our family at the imperial palms and my SIL booked her family at royal palms and if things work as planed her son will book his fam at royal palms also. I looked that the maps and imperial and royal look to share the same parking lots. Can anyone tell me if they share the same checkin desk? Share the same express market and main pool? It looks like we will be staying across the parking lot from each other, am I correct in that assumption? Also any feed back on the place, is the shuttle really that much of a pain to get to the world center? I don't mind shelling out a few bucks for a cab, can I get liqured up and take a cab from the hotel to my villa? Are there cabs waiting? I'd assume so as I'd expect it to be like any other Marriott hotel. I know there are a few of yeahs that have been here, Dick Taylor, I'd really like your feed back on this if you'd be so kind. How is the golf course there? I have not played hawks yet and plan to. What about fishing the ponds on the course? Anyone done that? How did you do? Thanks in advance for any info .
