    Friend in training sent me pics of the bar and its view, looks amazing. Apparently there is a "banana brown sugar old fashioned" that is a must-try.

    Sounds like a great way to ruin a good Bourbon. But I'll try anything once.

    Once you get the buds anesthetized its all good!

    ETA: Just got my UAOP summer mailer and it shows concept for Bar17. It has wire legged, plastic molded seats. I give those one week before they are trashed if they ever are installed.

    This sounds like my daily routine, not just hotel. Except for the cigarette. However, it is typically IU, Screamscape, and then Magic and I usually get dressed before heading to the lobby.

    ^Thats interesting, I’ve always thought this looked über sterilized since the day it was announced. Out of curiosity what kind of glitz were you hoping for?

    So, this is to be the least expensive of all the hotels thus far?

    Yes.

    Prices are actually higher than Cabana Bay when it opened though.

    I heard Universal is using 3rd-party bus companies to ferry visitors to and from the resorts. Is that common? I thought they had a sufficient fleet.

    They moved from internal shuttles to external company a bit ago. It’s why the cool ass OG Cabana shuttles went away.

    It is Mears. They do all of Universal's busses. And They do Disney's Magical Express and the Disney Cruise line Busses
