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.

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso.

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs is one of my go-to spots for a great meal.  The restaurant itself is beautiful and I've had so many great meals there over the years. Chef Morimoto is a relatively well-known chef after appearing on Iron Chef America as one of the original Iron Chefs, so when he opened a restaurant at Disney Springs I was so excited to give it a try being a fan of the show and of Chef Morimoto.  This restaurant brings his masterful Asian cuisine to Florida in his first "Pan-Asian" concept.  With 20-foot chandeliers and glass walls giving a peek into the kitchen and a sushi bar upstairs, there is something to catch everyone's eye here. In October, they had specialty spooky cocktails on the menu that we just couldn't resist trying! One was pumpkin and lychee based and the other was grapefruit and rose and they were both good but the black magic was definitely our favorite.  Twisted Pumpkin: absolut elyx, pumpkin spiced liqueur, lychee, liqueur, house
