    Hi. I'm a Loews Gold member also. I was always told that you couldn't lock in your free upgrade when you reserve your room. It is supposed to be subject to availability upon arrival. How did you lock in your upgrade?

    EDITED: Nevermind. I just called and secured a water view. WHOOP!

    pencil me in your calendar tricky.
    don't want to wait until the day you check out to see you at the rph lobby like last year.

    Just got off of the phone. I was able to book another room at a substantial savings over the King Suite rate. We are now booked into the Portofino Bay Hotel for the same five nights (May 12 through 17), but in a standard Garden View two-queen bed room. The rate is $231.75 per night and is the SM-SM rate. That's a savings of $300 over the length of the reservation, so I consider that to be substantial. I do understand that the PBH is located a little bit further from the parks, but they also offer the water transportation like the RPH. In fact, on our arrival day we plan to ride the water taxi over to RPH where it looks to be closer to jump across the street to the Walgreens to buy "essentials" - like beer and toothpaste.

    The nice lady helping to change the reservations constantly reminded me that this was considered their most luxurious resort. I am sure that we will like it - although I suspect that we might have preferred the South Pacific theme offered by the RPH.

    Actually Walgreens is alot closer to PbH than RPR.

    If you used google map it shows PBH, but says it RPR.

    Well, by golly, this seems to be getting better and better then. I still want to go and check out the RPH on our first day (no park time scheduled) and take in the atmosphere.

    So, the Walgreens is walkable from the PBH then?

    ETA - yup, looking at Google Maps, it does seem closer. I take it though that we can't just head out through the foliage and emerge on Kirkman, can we?

    the labeling of Universal's hotels on googlemaps is all off. At some point I should put in a correction to them. (they accept them! it's really neat)
