Post Question

I am wanting to stay on site Dec 20 to 23rd and then off to Disney. My question is if I buy an AP booked on site do I still get the FOTL as I am staying on site or do I have to buy them seperatley?

I figure the lines are going to be crazy so thinking the express tickets are worth but at $89 for 4 for 2 days that is over $700...

Cheers

unlimited usage of the express lines in the park are a hotel perk.
if you stay onsite, you have a photo express card made in the lobby once you check in.

there is no charge for express for the hotel guests.

To get the AP rate does everyone in the room have to have annual pass or just the one that is booking the room?

the adult needs the ap when booking the room.

if it is a couple, the wife might have the ap but the husband books the room.
they can book with the aph rate with no problem.

(everyone in the room does not need to have the ap.)

you don't need the ap at the time of booking but will need to purchase it after you check into the hotel in order to keep the ap rate.

Okay here is what I am thinking

Buy 2 AP for DH and me and a ticket deal for the other two are family only so they wont be back in the next year

then book the meal deal add on for 3 days which is 12 meal deals

and then book a HR room

So it should be a savings of at least $200 I would think

Cheers

check the menus for that meal deal.
i am assuming you are talking about the old one.


see if you would want to eat 12 of those meals before buying them.


the only place i would be using it at is Louie's.



i find that there are plenty of places in the parks that have food i really like.
the 6 places on the list wouldn't work for me except for Louie's.

you can buy it online in advance, or when you are in the park.

You can buy your Universal Meal Deal** tickets online, at front gate of either theme park, and at participating Meal Deal restaurant locations.

We've stayed at the RPR three times so far. For our 4th trip, we were considering Hard Rock. We love RPR but hubby was thinking that it might be fun to try somewhere different. It does cost more, but not a lot more. However, once I pointed out to him that pool hopping is allowed for Universal, he changed his mind so we'll be at RPR.

We did get a great rate without an AP, but we're going in the off-season and got a PIN. Also, we already had tickets that we purchased at the start of 2010 that we figure we should finally use!

We did the meal deal once, but just for the kids. When I figured out the cost of the meals and what I would eat, we would have wasted a lot of money on the meal deal for the adults. Since we were in the off-season, the parks closed at 6pm - and we found that we had to be at quick service by 5:30. So, that was a lot of rushing just to get two meals in. It was only $10 per a child when we did it then so it did work out to save us money for them. We're not doing it this next time since the best eater is now 10, putting him in the expensive category. (And the other two aren't huge eaters). Also, it wasn't stellar food. It saved us money on the kids that one day, but we had to rush to get dinner in. The parks don't close until 7pm this time around, but I don't think it's worth it to us this time.

I checked the AP rates for my upcoming trip in March, and their were none
There are not always discounts for AP?
Am I doing it right?
I just put in my dates, and put "aph" in the spot for a promo code?

We stayed at RPH last May and really enjoyed the hotel. It's such a short walk to US and IOA. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We are going for graduation trip the year and staying there again.

I have some new question if anyone has the answers?

1} If I have a annual pass do I still pay to park at the RP? I see where you can park at the garage for free with a AP?

2} Do you have to book a room through SeaWorld with one of their preferred hotels or can you just book directly through the hotel to receive the benefits of early entry?

Thanks!!

everyone pays to park at the onsite hotels.
you get free parking at the garage with the AP but no over night parking allowed there.

We just got back a couple weeks ago from PBH, and LOVED the resort. The room size is the biggest we've had at our Disney/Orlando hotels, and the theming was excellent. I had a rate of $185/night, so I felt like we got a 'Disney Deluxe' hotel for the price of a moderate.

We were in the West Wing, and literally minutes from the boat dock. Boat ride was beautiful, and only about 10min--and we never waited more than 5min for a boat.

Very happy with this hotel!
