Okay,calling all experts... we arrive at HRH tomorrow at 11 a.m., what to do 1st? Which park? (arriving Thurs. if this helps)What kind of room should I try to "upgrade" to? 2 adults and 13 yr. old son. How "busy" was it the last couple of days? How was the weather? Thanks and hopefully someone will have some advice for us! :rolleyes:
 
After a cold front moves through today (Wednesday), the weather is predicted to be ideal for the weekend.

I would suggest bringing hats for everybody. The sun is starting to get stronger now and a day bareheaded in the Florida sun can really take it out of you.

Hi Lori,
I've read your posts, it's been fun!
HAVE A GREAT VACATION! Relax and just enjoy. If you want to check Orlando's weather, go to www.weather.com. They give you the 7 day forecast, it was very accurate while we were there.
You must go to IOA first, since you will not be able to resist. Let everyone know what you think of Spiderman. Wear your bathing suit one day and hit all the water rides. They are a blast!
HRH: Lunch poolside from the Sunset Grill was so nice, the Cobb salad is excellent. Frozen dacquiri's are yummy!
Don't forget your camera. Have fun!!! Patti :)
 
Yes, I will have a good time... the whole planning process has been horrific....(husband losing job due to downsizing, then getting a job, but now knowing for awhile the official "start date", so had to cancel ressies 3 times at HRH!!! What a nightmare...( they still won't refund my money from Jan.)They are "working on it" , gee whiz... Disney returned my monies right away... hmmmm... who will get our vacation money next year??? I know... DISNEY!!! haha!! :D
 
Hi, be sure to get a room key for your boy, too, so he can flash it for FOTL. I would suggest going to Universal to do MIB first. He will probably like that. Use the free lockers (for 90 min.) to store stuff in.

I hope you get an upgrade, but if you don't you will still enjoy the room. Remember you can have park purchases sent to the room just like at disney. Also, the front desk/lobby area is on the third floor (it takes a few minutes to orient yourself to HRH because it is on a hill). Have fun.

Bring AAA card for discounts on everyting
 
Lori,

Have a WONDERFUL time! You've earned it!

We arrived Sunday before Easter at 11:30 and our room was ready. Went up and checked it out and then walked over to Universal. I was advised to do this first due to the time we arrived and it was great advise. FOTL saved the day. My daughter is 15 and thought this was the greatest hotel we ever stayed in (And she's stayed in a lot). Your son is just going to love it!
