    I have been a member and a constant visitor since the day you opened in 1990 and have watched you grow from the Universal Globe at the entrance of the Parking lot with the Psycho House as a Prime exhibit. Through today with all the growth of the Parks, and I’ve stayed in Every one of your hotels and we fell in love with the Royal Pacific Resort even though the Portofino has always tempted us to return we’ve stayed in the Portofino a dozen times, the Hard Rock about the same and each of the others a minimum of twice each but we have stayed in the Royal Pacific well over 25X. My point is with all the money I’ve spent there over the years I’ve Never received even a minor Thank You gift? Even Disney as big as they are give us vouchers for Collectors pins and Sea World and Busch Gardens give us Christmas Ornaments and other specials during the year like Free admission for guests during certain months. I’ve also received free meals BUT FROM UNIVERSAL NOTHING I also used to get like $20 discount via a coke or pepsi can reimbursement when renewing our passes. For YEARS the cost of renewing was $79-$99 dollars for Annual Passholders which worked very well so as to renew ALL our Park Passes but since Disney decided their parks were lined with Gold and took away our Grandfather clause last year. When those passes expire this month we will NO LONGER be a Disney Passholders! Even Busch Gardens allowed us to stay Grandfathered in and have kept our
    3 Park Annual Passes (Busch, Sea World, Aquatica) at our $20 per month since forever. I’m so very displeased that from my Original pass price of $79 per person all the way up to $300+ and don’t receive anything additional? I understand you’ve added some great rides BUT you’ve also removed some of my Favorites like King Kong, Jaws, Twister, Jurassic Park water ride etc. Again just an extremely disappointed Long Term Annual Passholders.

    Hello,I would like to ask several questions.I have read you have a no pet policy so are service dogs welcome if you have documents.Secondly do you have handicapped parking like WDW where the hotel parking is waived.Lastly does this resort have its own shuttle service and how often and how late does it run.I am a Florida annual pass holder so very interested in this hotel.

      We allow Service dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities and provide Handicap Parking. At this time, parking is at $14 plus tax per night, per vehicle (subject to change). We do provide transportation from/to the park, which usually runs every 20 minutes.

      Hi! Yes, as long as you book your stay as a Vacation Package, then you can purchase trips on the Superstar Shuttle as well.
