    We Stayed at Aventura. It was a nice hotel. We loved the rooftop bar.

    The rooms were on the small size but very efficient. Food Court was okay but they need to refine it and have more Team members in the morning. We saw a few empty stations and no one to cash us out.

    We went to Universal studios on day and Volcano the next. For Volcano bay we took advantage of the early entry also offered to passholders the day we went. My sister wanted to get a Cabana but it was $300.00 bucks. So she got premium seating for $100. There are two areas for this. One Located at the Wave pool and one in the middle of the park near the lazy river. We chose this one. It was quieter and I am sure the other near the Wave pool filled up quickly.

    We really liked that the food and water came to us. The TMs were so friendly and great. We are rangling up some friends to do the cabana next time. Hopefully it will happen. We will do premium again. It was quiet day at Volcano and we enjoyed it.

    We also went to two restaurants we haven't been too before. Lombardos and Pat O'Brien. We really liked both. But Pat O's came out the winner. It was a nice night and we sat out in the courtyard. So Lovely and the food was good.

    Thanks for your review. Staying at Aventura one night, looking forward to it, 3 adults, no kiddies, so should be a good fit. For all of our past trips we have stayed onsite at one of three with EP, so feel "spoiled" with the EP, but mid December we should be fine at Aventura. Looking forward to the rooftop bar and the views. HOPING to do VB, younger adult DS really is eager to go; we all love water parks, but will depend on weather, maybe we'll get lucky with warm weather!:sunny: Read consistently good reviews about Urban Pantry, so we'll try that as well. Will enjoy the 1 hour early entry with our Aventura stay. EXCITED!:-):yay:
