    So happy to hear that......I know you`ll love it!!! Half the price of RPR!!!! Wow that is a good deal...….

    It is so much nicer than Aventura....it`s a warm and welcoming hotel, we felt Aventura a bit cold feeling.

    Everything about Sapphire we love.....and the pool is such a fun atmosphere too......I know a lot of folks don't like it for some reason, but we did like it.....not sure of your son`s age but the slide may appeal to him.....but the food options we enjoy too, especially Strong Water :thumbsup2

    So, yes, like RP it`s an easy resort to spend time in for us too...….::yes::

    Wow! I didn’t know about the connected part. The one time we went from RPR to SF, we took the outside path alongside the waterway.

    Yep, they sure are...…

    From RP walk past what was Tchoup Chop, turn into the doors into the convention ballroom area and follow the path......you go up a couple of sets of escalators and a few turns, but it`s more or less a straight walk.....and it`s air conditioned...….::yes::

    Takes you to behind the Universal store and lobby in Sapphire...…..

    Unless an APH rate pops up for a room at RPR (Just Suites at the moment) I will be staying at Sapphire Falls in August. Any room location recommendations for something convenient to the pool?

    Thanks!

    There are a few images online.....

    It`s quite a compact resort.....some of the corridors can feel long if you are right at the end of one, but everything is off the central lobby area.....

    Nothing is very far away from anything...….:thumbsup2

    Guest House 2 is probably the closest for pool access.

    But, again, everything is easily accessed through the central lobby area.....corridors again can be quite long if you are at the furthest end of them...….:thumbsup2

    It is really easy......I haven’t seen an image of the way you can walk......not to say there isn’t one......but it’s signposted along the way and you really can’t go wrong......:thumbsup2

    Thank Shumi- one more thing. When staying at a deluxe then moving to a moderate, does it matter if you check into the mod before or after going to the parks regarding the ep from the deluxe? If you check into the mod, you can still use the ep from the deluxe you just checked out of for the day? I hope what I’m trying to ask makes sense lol.

    I completely agree.

    The outside path follows the waterway between RPR and SF. Walk past the Despicable Me Character Breakfast place (where Tchoup Chop used to be), and the doorway to the convention rooms. You’ll see a path that heads towards the waterway. That path is the outside path between the two resorts.

    For the inside path, I believe you’ll enter through the convention rooms doorway and go down some corridors to locate it. I haven’t taken the indoor walkway yet and just became aware of it recently thanks to these boards.

    No, it does not matter. You keep your room keys when you check out, so just continue showing your deluxe hotel room key to access the EP for the remainder of your checkout day.

    Hello! Just booked the Kid Suite with an adjoining queen on an APH rate for our group of 6ppl in August :sunny::crazy2::sunny:...Have I read correctly that the kid suites are all in buildings 1 & 2? My reservation says pool view so I am assuming it has to be one of the buildings around the pool. This will be our first time staying at SF. We have previously stayed at CBBR and Adventura, but we found ourselves using the water taxi almost exclusively and we always walk through SF and admire the decor so we booked it this time! The extra bathroom in the connecting queen should be a great addition as well! Now to start planning where to eat! :P
