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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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

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.

I booked online when ressies opened for hhn and had no problems. Have dropped that now so no recent experience
