My wife and I were planning on going to Universal for our anniversary. Their website stated that rooms started at 129 a night for the Royal Pacific which seems to be a nice hotel, and with the monthly payment plan on the annual pass we could visit and go to the parks and citywalk for not very expensive.
So I called to book yesterday and found out that, unlike disney, the price on their rooms during the week fluctuate and that it would actually be 159 a night for most of the nights we'd be there and only 129 one night. They also neglected to tell me until I asked that they also charge 12 dollars a day for you to park even if you're an AP holder with free parking. So that comes out to about 130 dollars more than I was anticipating paying.
So I was very grrrd.
So now our plans are up in the air. I just thought it was bad show. If you're going to be connected to a resort, make your rates as simple as possible like Disney does. Enough of this fluctuating rates based on days.
If anybody can answer for me. We're now considering staying at the French Quarter resort at Disney property which would be slightly cheaper. I doubt we'll do any parks while we're there. So we'll basically be relaxing at the resorts and taking in the clubs, restaurants, and stores at both DTD and Citywalk. How does The French Quarter compare to Royal Pacific?
