    My wife and I are in our upper 30's. No Kids, we will be at Disney for 6 days in early August, then we will spend 5 days going to Universal, Sea World Discovery Cove, etc. Our travel agent recommends staying at PBH for those 5 nights. It looks nice. What can anyone tell me? The Royal Pacific looks nice, too, but our agent doesn't know much about it since it's new.

    Bottom line: Which is better and why?

    Royal Pacific hasn't opened yet, so no one can give you first hand experience. Didn't your agent mention the Hard Rock Hotel? It is the other Universal hotel. By staying at any of the three hotels, you get express access. Just show your room key at the attractions and go right into the express line. It's a priceless perk! Both the Hard Rock and Portofino are fine hotels. The Portofino is more laid back. There is a thread on this board giving a description of the Royal Pacific that sounds great. You might want to book these hotels yourself to see if you can get one of their discounts. The offer the Entertainment Discount, AAA, and Fan Club discounts.
