We originally were booked to go to Sapphire Falls in October for a few nights to do two nights of Halloween Horror nights thanks to the buy 1/get 1 free deal they offered earlier this year. However, I live in Myrtle Beach, SC and our governor declared a mandatory evacuation for the zone I live in, so plans changed! We have a ten year old cat who is our baby, and many hotels in SC do not allow pets even during hurricane evacuations. Local newscasters were recommending going as far away as Atlanta, but we are not familiar with that area and I was afraid of booking something unsafe. I knew that the universal hotels that allow pets welcome cats, so I was pleased to find a pretty good rate for RPR and later that night, we were on our way! We left around 1 a.m. and made it to Universal around 11 with a few stops for gas, caffeine and breakfast. Room was not ready until about 2 p.m. We were in the pet floor with mostly guests with dogs, but noise was not bothersome at all. Very few barks, just happy pets and pet owners : ) After we got to our room, they brought a bag with items for Bella (my cat). Mostly dog things, but I appreciated the placemat and larger water bowl than what I had packed. More to follow on our time at the hotel and the Halloween Horror Nights we attended (and of course food).
