    As of yet, as the hotel isn't open yet, we don't have a lot of knowledge other than what has been released but as time we goes on we should have more pictures and hopefully when folks begin to stay there we will have more to show.

    As always comments and questions are welcome...…...

    Very interested - 3 queen beds for same price point as Sapphire Falls. Hmmm...does getting 6 in one room override the value of the boat transportation? Worth pondering

    I have seen some Brits mentioned they had booked or were about to book.....I know they were spot on with dates with Aventura so hopefully this one will be the same and open as planed.

    Thank you! Have been waiting for a new thread for this :-) Staying here 14-28 August next year. Really pleased that we can walk to some offsite restaurants on I'Drive as we won't have a car.

    You`re welcome...…..:)

    There`s not much to say right now or add really, but we wanted to get it up and running as soon as possible.....folks are booking already and it`s always interesting to discuss rumours and possibilities as well as what updates they are making and folks opinions of them...……

    It is handy for many restaurants, and cabs will be convenient too with no car...….

    I have to say I'm torn between CBBR and Surfside Inn now. I have booked both until we make up our minds. The suite at Surfside Inn looks so much more appealing to me. Especially the number of beds! I love that hubby & I can be in the small room and each kid can have their own bed in the other room. The room decor is more appealing to me as well. The pools are more appealing at CBBR but I'm not sure how much time we would spend there as it is.

    What I have not been able to figure out so far is CAN we walk to the parks? CBBR has the pathway. When I check out google maps, I don't think we can, but then on other boards people seem to be saying it will be walkable - just a bit longer of walk.

    Based on the pics above and common sense (I think, lol), the I-trolley stop that was at Wet n Wild should be unaffected. So, for a few bucks a day, the eating options increase exponentially! Along with evening options since the park closing time(s) are often thought to be too early.

    Nearly free transportation to Sea World parks on I trolley (not sure how long it will take with all the stops along the way).

    It is walkable.........you have crossings on the main roads and sidewalks all the way along to where you can turn in to the car park area of the parks.....

    Whether you would want to walk is another story........you could do it in 20 minutes or so.....maybe longer with little kids, but there’s no shade whatsoever from the hotel till you reach the bus/car area........then the rest of the way into Citywalk and the parks.

    There will be a regular bus service to take you back and forward........I imagine it’ll be very reliable and regular.

    Reserved here from Nov 22-Nov 28! Truthfully, it was the price that drew me in.

    I booked for September for hopeful return to HHN, so unless a better AP rate comes up somewhere else...
    Oh and my confirmation email said parking is $14/day.

    My impression is over night car parking will be $27 a night to hotel overnight parking aT $27 for the deluxe hotel I am booked at

    It will be cheaper for me to fly and not drive to the deluxe hotel

    If I stayed at the bargain hotel, it is cheaper for car parking

    Yep, it’s showing $14 for overnight guests and $45 for day guests......

    I thought it would be $17 overnight.

    Good morning. This is probably a stupid question, but...We go to Universal in November coming from Michigan. I've always gotten an AP for the hotel discount (among other things). The families that go with us looked at this hotel, Endless Summer and really want to stay here this year. I priced out a week and the prices are actually very reasonable even without an AP. I'm assuming that it's the SMSM kicking in and I understand it's a Value Resort. But it just looks so nice! So my question is do I even need to get an AP this year? Any insight will be much appreciated.

    You posted you are going one week

    Compare what it would cost for 7 days of tickets vs the basic ap cost

    Go with what will be the better deal for you

    No idea at this point what ap room rates will be 11 months from now
