    Does anyone know if the Deluxe Rooms or the Kids Suite at the HRH include Club Level? If not, can we request it when we arrive at the hotel? TIA:flower3:

    We've been there in Feb and the pool didn't close until around 10 o'clock.

    On club level there are four deluxe rooms. However, you cannot book them, you can only request them. I would call a few days in advance and request one. I don't think there are any kids suites on club level.

    Thanks damo. We are leaning towards the kids suite especially with two teenage boys. Just trying to figure out all of the options. We have visited the HRH many times for dinner but have never really explored. Is there a place to grab a quick breakfast? We have eaten at the Kitchen many times for dinner:cloud9: but never breakfast. We are definitely going to do breakfast there next year. When we were there in March, I was almost positive I saw a "Starbucks" sign.:banana: :worship:

    I will be at the Royal Pacific in May. I got the "stay more, save more" rate because I booked Jan 1st (only $186/night). I am also pleased that I purchased my park tickets at $99 each for 7-day 2-park hopper pass, right before they increated the rate! WooHoo!

    Questions:
    (1) Is there a shuttle from the Airport to the Universal Hotel resorts?
    (2) Do they offer the Baggage Check like at Disney? That is an awesome perk. But if they don't do (1), then I guess they wouldn't do (2).

    Thanks for all the great comments.

    Does anyone know if they allow small coolers in RPR? I just want to have snack foods on hand in the evening if we want and also cold water. I'm not sure if I read it on here, but someone said there weren't refrigerators in the rooms, but for a nightly rate you could get one, price? Also, do they have mini-bars in the rooms and has anyone just used that to keep their stuff chilled?

    Thanks for any information!

    They charge $25/n for the fridge and I know I have seen someone talk about using the wet bar for their things, but honestly cannot remember what they said exactly.

    Yes you can bring your own cooler, We do it every time we stay.

    FYI, we bring a 48 quart cooler with no problems.

    We fly into MCO and then use a town car service that offers a grocery stop on the way to the hotel. Initially, we'd buy a styrofoam cooler at the store when purchasing our grocery items. Now we have fold-up cooler with a plastic liner that we can pack into our luggage, and use when we purchase our groceries.

    It's been so many years between visits that I forget everything. I just booked my room at the RPR for 1/4. I see others mentioning AAA rates but I didn't see such an option when I made the online reservation. Is there a trick to getting it? I am a member. Thanks.

    I believe that you have to call them and ask what the AAA rate is.

    Signed up for Loews First (now called YouFirst) then found out that stays at HRH Universal Orlando are excluded from receiving benefits. Maybe someone should change the webpage info.

    I am planning to go to Universal in June and plan to go to Royal Pacific and was reading on this board that you get FOTL privileges to any ride that has Express privileges. Does anybody know which rides don't have that? Does Forbidden Journey, Spiderman ride have it?

    Thanks!:dance3:
