    Correct. But, I was comparing the Universal Value to a much more expensive Disney Moderate. Almost the same size.

    Disney Moderate is a luxury hotel price with a Holiday Inn room :D

    That's an impressively sized room for the price and location (plus having UOR hotel perks). It was always going to be a value and on the smaller side, but compare this to a Disney value or even a moderate and it's a damn steal. If you're complaining about this hotel, you obviously aren't their target demographic.

    EDIT:
    My only negative thoughts on the rooms is, very similar to Aventura, the lack of color on the walls.

    No argument there, I wholeheartedly agree. All of my points , bottom line, are that WDW hotels are way overpriced compared to Universal. ....And WDW locations are not as advantageous, in most cases.

    The clean white on the walls speaks to me, Aventura rooms actually have some grey and purple worked in

    The pool looks a lot of less vaginay from the ground.

    So was reading today that guests staying at ES are not permitted to use other onsite pools and vice versa. Any confirmation on that?

    With VB now, I don’t know why you’d want to.

    It’s always been a nice perk but I just found it to be a little pointless.

    We were under the impression at the media rounds that the benefit would remain, but OI is saying Universal confirmed that will not be the case. I can understand that peeving off some people.

    Because one requires a park ticket, and one doesn't?
