    Weird, because the official account on Twitter confirmed in at least one reply that the benefit still existed... but maybe there's been a change in policy since.

    I do enjoy the CB lazy river, but with VB right next to it it won't be missed.

    Also, it's nice to see a fellow Weegie here :grin:

    I’m not sure how they plan to enforce that. I go to the pools as a local sometimes and no one says a thing.

    Yeah, that’s like saying people who stay at a WDW resort shouldn’t care about their pool or pool hopping because there’s two water parks to choose from.

    I wonder if it's some sort of measure to prevent people from walking to and from Endless. The Uni Blvd and I-Drive intersection can be very dangerous.

    Doubtful. No one is going to walk the distance for a pool when 1. One's on property. 2. Busses are offered.

    Maybe it's just me but I wouldn't be staying onsite if I didn't have a ticket.

    They can care about their own pool but Disney don't do resort to resort buses and it sounds like a pain to drive about just for a pool.

    I feel like we will eventually see a walking bridge similar to the one that’s going in over Kirkman installed here though. It is a very dangerous intersection and these hotels will only increase that danger.

    There's a bunch of people who take breaks from the parks, the so-called "Hotel/Pool Day". In addition, some people don't like to do slides and stuff so a ticket to VB seems silly.

    To CityWalk, it’s probably not much further than CBBR is.

    I always do a pool day but it’s the pool in the hotel.

    This could be a U.K. thing but I think all the tickets we buy now are all 3 parks for 14 days.

    Definitely a UK thing.

    Many families here in the US save up for years just to do a 7 day vacation. To add, most here don't do longer than 7 day vacations because most people here don't get all that much paid time off throughout the year.

    Not everyone likes waterparks but are fine with the hotel pools

    Also, you can't have too many lazy rivers

    I'm expecting a bridge to occur very very soon...The media would jump on a story that someone got hit "just outside" of "Universal's newest resort"....The headline is basically written

    Y'all, these are beautiful. Just what International Drive North needed. IMG_20190623_150050.jpg IMG_20190623_144509.jpg

    When the landscaping is completed on both sides, this will really bring up the look of I-Drive. As it is they look pretty amazing.

    I wonder if they'll implement anything to keep people from neighboring hotels from using any of the perks of this hotel (ie buses to the parks, the pool, etc).

    Am I the only one having issues with booking online? I'll likely call today, but I tried booking online this weekend and nothing went through and the site kept failing after choosing how many people I am booking to stay. Not sure if its site glitches, but I tried probably 5-6 times yesterday and failed everytime. Not sure if anyone else has had this issue.
