Disneyworld - day 2

Hollywood studios was up first. We had originally planned to go to Animal Kingdom but found that there weren't many attractions we wanted to go to. Because we had such a long day the day before, we decided to take the opportunity to sleep in a little bit. Our first fast pass wasn't scheduled until 9:45-10:45 so we figured we'd get there near the …

Today we got up really early in the morning and drove to the Pacific Resort to get a special pass that lets you in to WWOHP (Wizarding World of Harry Potter) an hour early and gives you unlimited fastpasses (to skip the queues at the rides).

We walked to Islands of Adventure and went straight to WWOHP. We went straight to Ollivander's, a …

Other than allot of time in the resort pool we spent all Saturday at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure; the express pass made visiting both parks possible.

... the panic only makes the sweat pour quicker! I wander up and down the platform a few times with people staring at me like I'm a crazy tourist (which, of course, I am). I knew this would happen. I had it all perfectly mapped out in my head (and iPhone!) - and now this!! Deep breaths and I make one last chance decision to go downstairs (knowing if it's wrong I'll have to haul my ridiculously heavy suitcase back up 3 flight of stairs :|) but hey what do you know! It IS the ...

    Great pool, rooms and location

    The hotel is beautiful and really made me taking notes to visit again. The hotel lobby is crisp and clean, the rooms were conveniently located and the pool was super fun. On our second day, my nephew played in the water as we sat poolside eating nachos and enjoying some beverages (my husband and my brother enjoyed getting some adult drinks during this opportunity). The hotel is also very conveniently located to the parks and so we just walked back and forth to the Islands of Adventure park and then took the complimentary water taxi the next day back and forth to Universal Studios. Also, with the express passes that we had booked with the hotel we had gotten early entry which was great to avoid some of the line ups. And the express pass which was fantastic to have so we could really explore more of the park and utilize our day more.

    The rooms at the Royal Pacific are nice. They are a little on the small size but have everything you need on vacation. The hotel and grounds are beautiful. I would definitely recommend this hotel for people visiting Universal.

    Heaven on Earth

    from

    The Royal Pacific was great. Front of the line on the park rides was great, also. Only had one problem with front of the line at MIB II ride. Spent happy hour at the Hard Rock Cafe. Eat at the bar, no waiting. Nascar Cafe was a good for lunch. Not priced too high. The pool was great. People were as nice as I have ever seen. Water taxi was great. If I had to look for something, Checkin could have been faster. This resort was booked full. Priced right. At times, a lot of kids around, but great. I would go back every year.

    A great experience!

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Royal Pacific during the first week of September, 2002. We found the room to be clean, well-stocked, and maintained. Watch out for those $7 evain bottles though! I broke down one night and opened it. It comes to $7 and change on the bill after tax. It's cheaper to just use the vending machines in the park. The staff was excellent. On our last day, I forgot to book a taxi to the airport (I thought it was included in the package). One of the valets outside noticed us waiting and informed us of the error. He quickly directed us to a (free) phone and helped us connect to a cab company. He really went the extra mile to help us out. The waitstaff in the restaurant (can't recall the name but it had a great breakfast buffet) were friendly and courteous as well. A few people in other reviews complained about the prices. And it's true that things in the park and it's hotels can get a bit steep. But I didn't find them any more expensive than anywherer else. Certainly not more than Disney. Anyway, you're on vacation so enjoy! One thing to keep in mind though; City Walk stays open until 2, but the hotel grounds close at 10. We got stuck out there one night walking down strange paths among palm trees. Yes the paths were nicely landcaped but there were roaches (or palmetto beetles) big enough to strap a saddle on and ride! Another helpful employee saw us struggling with the locked gates and let us into the hotel. I think this had more to do with us getting lost on the winding paths around the hotel pool than with a hotel defect. We had a blast. You should go.

    Wow!

    from

    I couldn't believe how this hotel actually made you feel you were in the South Pacific. Everything was thought out to the highest detail, and service was executed to the highest level. Universal Express Pass was priceless, allowing us to "skip" everyone in the park-- that was a priceless amenity when you only have one day in the park.

    Dissapointed in Royal Pacific

    We spent 6 days at Disney and then went on to Universal...

    Had a great time

    from

    Just spent a week at this hotel and I am very glad that I chose to stay there. As several have stated before, the grounds are beautiful and a good amount of detail has been put into the south pacific theme, right down to a "beach" area at the back of the hotel where the water taxi picks up (to go to CityWalk, Universal Studios, and Islands of Adventure) complete with an amphibious plane out in the water to add to the look. Swimming is limited to the pool, which is very large and a great place to pass an afternoon or evening. Towels can be checked out at the pool at no charge. There is a kids play area at one side of the pool that is designed to look like part of the top deck of an old steamship from the 30's. Water sprays down for the kids to play in. There are also several small cabanas that can be rented around the pool as well. They are canvas sided with a wood frame and have a ceiling fan, tv, phone and hot tub.

    Commendable Experience!

    Universal Studio's new Royal Pacific Resort has a few wrinkles to be ironed out, but is overall a wonderful place to stay.

    A nice resort with good value

    from

    My girlfriend and I just returned from spending one (1) week (July 29 - Aug 4) at the newest resort in Universal Studios. It is a very nice resort with a South Pacific theme. The resort contains three (3) tower and each tower has about 7 floors. We were in tower 3, on the fourth floor and our room faced towards the rear of the resort. When you walk into the resort, you are actually on the third floor of the resort.

    Nice place to visit and beautiful landscaping.

    But ...

    poor housekeeping, no hot water, very expensive restaurants with moderate food, no space to park for $6.00 a day, and new - inexperienced staff.

    Royal Pacific Resort, Brand new, not the greatest

    from

    I stayed at the Royal Pacific Resort for a week, the last week of july into august. When first arriving my family and I immedietly had trouble. We were guaranteed 3 rooms on the same floor, 2 of those rooms were to be connected. When we got there it was 3:30pm (check-in is at 4:00pm) we were informed the rooms were all seperated, after talking with the extremely friendly staff for about 40min. we got our rooms. When I went into my room located on the 5th floor of tower one I noticed a large bottle of evion wateron the drawer, I thought thats really nice of them to give free water, when I went to open it I noticed a tag that said 7$, not so free, one thing I noticed is this hotel has many hidded fees. The hotels resteraunt is great, very nice with themed dinners and character dinners, the food is great but very expensive. Great pool, the largest in Orlando, very warm, the life gaurds are also very friendly. For kids they have a water play area wih water guns. The watertaxi is very convienient it'll take you directly to City Walk from there the two parks are just a short walk away. The hotel overcharges you for everything, for example a bottle of coke normally costn $1.25 costs $2.50. One night at 1:30am th fire alarm went off and the hotel was evacuated, we were let n after 40 minutes of standing outside but the alarm continued to sound for over an hour, than at 6:00am it wen off again for 5 inutes just long enough to wake my whole family up, we were first told it was a group of kids that pulledth alarm but later found out from a bell boy it was a planed drill which was supposed to go off during the afternoon but did not we were given a 50$ refund. The hotel is beutiful, huge, with a beach and putting greens. The pool is open from 8am till 11pm and the water taxi runs until 2:30am besides te room mix-up, the many hidden fees, the annoyance of getting to the disney area, and the fire alarm, it was an ok hotel, I recomend it hopeing you'll have better luck, but I will not

    Great Resort and Value

    from

    We just completed our Orlando vacation July 12-16, 2002.We had heard about the Royal Pacific Resort and read a few review’s via the internet that really made the Resort sound inviting so we decided to give it a try and boy am I glad we did! It is within walking distance to the Universal Parks and City Walk. This hotel captures the charm of the South Pacific down to the last detail. The guest rooms were nicely decorated with the South Pacific theme. We found our stay to be very enjoyable the staff was very helpful and accommodating. You can’t beat the Express Pass. A benefit of staying at a Universal Property, we bypassed most of waiting lines at each park.
