Loews Royal Pacific Resort

Loews Royal Pacific Resort is one of three Premier level accommodations at Universal Orlando Resort.  With wonderful amenities and a South Pacific feel, it's almost a vacation in and of itself! 

 
Accommodations

Loews Royal Pacific has three main types of rooms; Standard, Club Level, and Suites.  The most common room type is the Standard which can vary in view and location but otherwise comes with everything you need for an enjoyable and relaxing stay.

Dining

There is something for everyone at this resort, from Polynesian-inspired fare at Islands Dining Room, American favorites at Jake's American Bar to sushi at Orchid Court Lounge.  In addition to three full service restaurants, there is also a quick service option by the pool and a grab and go/coffee shop off the lobby.  If that wasn't enough options for you, they also offer 24-hour room service!

Amenities

It's hard to miss the beautiful lagoon-style pool at the resort. It is serene and relaxing while also fun for all ages.  There is a water play area for kids, and a pool bar for adults which also serves delicious food for the family. There is also a fitness center nearby located on the ground floor to keep up your fitness routine while on your trip.

There are of course hotel basics like Concierge, Bell Services, and a Gift Shop off the lobby. Additionally, there is conference and meeting space if you'd like to hold an event at the resort. 
Perks

First up, location: When you stay at Royal Pacific you are never more than 10 minutes from anything at Universal Orlando Resort.  You can utilize all the transportation options (more information below) including water taxis and a walking path.  What could be more convenient than that?

Staying on-site at a Universal Orlando resort hotel also comes with complimentary perks, what could be better?  For staying at a Premier Level hotel, you will gain not only early park access (30 mins to an hour before other guests for select parks) but you will also get the Universal Express Unlimited Pass. This allows you to skip the line for almost every attraction at Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure.  This could easily save you hundreds of dollars, but also gives you plenty of time back in your day to either do more attractions or enjoy some R&R at the resort. 

Transportation

There are four different ways you can get to the Universal Orlando Resort attractions from this hotel.  To Universal CityWalk (which you can then reach Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure) you can take a quick water taxi ride, a 10-15 minute walk along a beautiful path, or grab a pedi-cab (they are free but the drivers work for tips, so it's best if you have cash.)  For Volcano Bay, there is a shuttle bus that runs regularly throughout the day.

Pros of the Disney Skyliner

Disney’s Skyliner, a gondola system connecting several resorts and two theme parks, opened a little over a year ago in September 2019. Before its opening, resorts on the Disney World Monorail, which connects three deluxe resorts and their related villas with two theme parks, were considered the most coveted accommodations … but has that changed now that the Skyliner is here? I recently stayed at Disney’s Riviera Resort, which features a Skyliner station with direct access to the back entrance of Epcot as well as the BoardWalk area and the Yacht & Beach Club. In the other direction, passing through the hub next door at Caribbean Beach Resort allows for access to the front entrance of Hollywood Studios in minutes. Other resorts with Skyliner stations include Art of Animation and Pop Century, which in my opinion raises the value of these Value Resorts. The ability to get to so many resort areas for shopping and dining is a bonus. The continuous cycle of Skyliner gondolas means the lin

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details. As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner. Photo courtesy of WDWMagic.com Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals. There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each
