The Marshs Marvellous Mousecation- Day 5 - Thursday 11th April


We just about managed to get the kids up after their late night last night.
Fortunately we were packed & ready to go after breakfast ( in the villa) to Loews Royal Pacific Resort for a 1 night stay (but 2 days of ‘front of line' pass benefits.
Found the hotel easily, got checked in, left bags with bell services & headed to the parks.
The kids were looking forward to Minions & Simpson's rides and we were all merrily walking along & chatting that we didn't realise we'd made a bit of an error & entered the wrong park!
However, eldest DD & DS both wanted to do Hulk ride while we were there (neither DH or I could stomach it). They seemed to be gone ages, and after realised it was because they'd opted for the front row line!
While we were there, youngest DD spotted Dr Seuss area, so we let her on the carousel & we all went on the train ride.
Then over to Minions & Simpson's rides (twice each) before getting some foot long hot dogs & crisps to share for lunch.
After lunch we did the Fast'n'Furious ride & kids then decided they wanted to use the hotel pool, so we caught the lovely water taxi back, took our bags up to our rooms (which incidentally were ready really early- like 10 mins after 1st entering park), and headed down to the pool to cool off. Despite re-applying sun cream regularly , we realised we've all caught the sun a bit.

After swimming we showered & got dressed, then back on the water taxi to the Sports Bar place for dinner. We hadn't booked & had to wait for a table (not too long), but by the time we'd finished, it was too late to catch the lazer show round the lake. We may come back another day as we have 14 day tickets.
So, as we are all feeling exhausted now, it was back on the water taxi again & in bed now as I type! Good night!

Love RPR 😍 its the only way to do Universal with the FOLP. I dont think I could go it without those now.

Well done on having everyone up and out despite your late night. Cant have been easy. X

Like RPR better than Hard Rock. You really benefit from FPs and is well worth booking a room for that alone.

Yes, Im very grateful to The Dibb for info re FOLP with Universal hotels. DH commented how lovely it was - and said the cost was worth it with FOL passes & no faffing with booking FP, just turn up & go. Is it just me who feels a tiny bit guilt walking past huge standby lines though?! 😃
Its probably been mentioned on here (my head can only hold limited information), but we even asked concierge if we can park at RPR on our non hotel Universal days & use water taxis. They confirmed we can (obviously still have to pay for parking), but DH feels itll be quicker to exit hotel car park at the end of the day rather exiting the main Universal car park, so thats what we plan to do next week.
