My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!
Loews Royal Pacific Resort photographed in November 2008:
The three resorts on the Universal Orlando property are linked by a river-like waterway and water taxis that go to the Universal Citywalk lake from which both theme parks are entered. This resort is themed to the Italian resort town, and is a large complex of piazzas and three pools surrounded by hotel wings that successfully appear to be a panorama of connected antique town buildings.
The fountain in front has a collection of Italian cars and scooters parked in front to complete the theme.
