Preferred Resorts at Universal Orlando
A stay at the Universal Studios Preferred Hotels will make you never want to leave. What a NEAT Stay! The more Moderate Universal Resorts have many of the same benefits as the Universal Orlando Premier Hotels. As a matter of fact, the Loews Royal Pacific Resort has the same advantages as the more expensive, Premier Properties. The only thing you are really missing with the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is the Express Passes and Priority seating when dining. Let us take a deeper look at what you do get with the Preferred Universal Orlando Hotels.
Excitement at the Moderate Orlando Universal Hotels
A great family adventure awaits at any of the Preferred Universal Orlando Resorts with on site Restaurants, Water Taxi Transportation to the Parks and City Walk as well as having some amazing themes, features and fun. The adults will really like the poolside bars with full cafe’s where you can order items off the menu and dine right by the pool. The kids are going to have a blast at the pools, with Sapphire Falls having a lengthy water slide and the Royal Pacific having a kids splash area complete with water cannons.
Universal Orlando Express Pass?
This is where things can get a little confusing! The Universal Unlimited Express Pass allows guests to have front of the line access at many of the attractions and rides in Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Here is the confusing part, it only comes with one of the Preferred properites, the Loews Royal Pacific Resort. There is a cost difference when staying at these locations but weigh the benefits of the Express passes before making your final decision.
Note: Although the Express Pass is not included with your stay at the Sapphire Falls Resort you can head over to the ticket counter and it can be added to your daily trips to the parks for an additional fee.
Dining Priority Seating
All of the Preferred Resorts at Universal in Orlando have great restaurants and amazing options to choose from on the menu. The Loews Royal Pacific Resort also comes with Priority Seating options for dining getting you in faster to your favorite Restaurants when the crowds are a bit heavy.
The Preferred Hotels at Universal Orlando offer Water Taxi service to and from City Walk, Universal Studios and Islands of adventure. Walking is not out of the question but it does add a bit of added stress on your feet, especially if you have spent the entire day in the parks. Buses are available if the water taxi is not running due to the weather.
Access to the Parks Earlier
Preferred guests enjoy some extra time, early in the morning at Universal Studios and Islands of adventure. This is only for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the moment but it is wonderful being in this section of the park without all of the larger crowds.
