I recently booked a Nov. trip to Universal. We have rooms at the Royal Pacific. Only problem? My cousin and her husband work for Universal and they said that if we stay on site they can't be seen with us! If we stay off-site they can go to the parks with us, but if we stay on-site they are not allowed to "fraternize with the guests." When I first booked my cousin didn't work there but her husband already did. She found all this out in orientation - don't know why he didn't tell her. All I've been hearing about for months is how great the hotels are, how beautiful, and how much fun we'd have. So I go and book and now I have to give it up. Anyone out there know if Universal is likely to give a dispensation for family? I'm not staying in the Hotel my cousin's husband works for, and my cousin doesn't work on-site. This stinks! I understand the policy - no fraternization so that other guests don't get upset, and no special privileges, but I wasn't looking for that. I just wanted to stay on-site so I could have an easy time going to the parks and I would have a chance to enjoy the ambiance.
