WE HAD THE BEST TIME! Rain forgotten,put on the ponchos and go!
Got out of the car at the Hard Rock Hotel and heard the music. New I was at the right place!
Check-in was a snap. 5 min. at most. They have a great program for kids. Show a recent report card with an A on it and you get a bottomless cup, pen pencil, and braclet( Great Kid). My son was thrilled.
Spent the 200 a nite and stayed on the club level. It was great! the Conceirge service was all we wanted and more. The rooms were Beautiful, the beds were soooooooooooo comfortable, great TV and ( yes) STEREO. They give you a cd to keep when you check -in. Also a libary ( cd) in the Club room. It was Great! The pool and slide were almost as good as the one at yacht and beach at Disney. VERY CLEAN pool area.
The best was, because we stayed at a on site hotel, we got free express pass. We zoomed ahead of the line. kinda like fast pass with NO WAIT AT ALL to go on the rides .
The parks were so much fun! Island of Adveture is everybit as good as Disney. I was so surprised. Lots of rollar coasters, Cat in the hat land is sooooo sweet! and Lots of fun.Water rides were really wet. I mean...you had no chance! Spiderman was our family fav. It's a must and thats all I will say. Don't want to ruin the surprise.
Universal is a once every 6 yrs. park . MIB is great!!!!!!! Twister was good ...once. Terminator is pretty good too.I hate the back to the future ride. Everyone I know gets a head ache from banging their head on the back of the car. Need to fix that.
I will say this. the park prices are cheaper than Disney but the merchandise is higher. ( can u believe it) I was shocked! I found it hard to believe that a place would mark there STUFF up more than Disney does! Now I've seen it all ( LOL )
