Mobile Details on Universal hotels Reopening.

Just been reading this.
Sounds good to me.

BREAKING: here are the details on the reopening of Universal Orlando's hotels.

📷 Most hotels will reopen June 2; Portofino and Dockside will remain closed.

📷 There will be temperature checks and masks required in public areas.

📷 Guests staying at Universal's hotels between June 2-4 with a valid park ticket will be invited to visit the parks on June 3 and 4.

📷 If the theme parks reach capacity, hotel guests will NOT be impacted because Universal accounts for hotel guests when setting capacity limits.

📷 Early Park Admission will still be available for hotel guests. It will be scheduled for 8:00-9:00 am for Universal Studios Florida and 9:30-10:00 am at Universal’s Volcano Bay.

📷 Guests can purchase Universal Express for dates starting on June 8. Those staying at Hard Rock Hotel & Royal Pacific Resort can use complimentary Express access on any day of their visit. Premier Passholders will be able to use their after-4 pm Express benefit beginning June 5.

Feels like universal are treating onsite guests bettter than Disney...
And Disney is my favourite place.

This is good to hear as Universal is my Plan B if I'm not happy with what Disney offer. I've done a couple of dummy bookings today and am impressed with the cost of their hotels. Sapphire Falls is the one I'm interested in.

I’ll still hold off to see what Disney will offer for September. But if not happy then I think we’ll just do universal as we’ve already 4 nights at Cabana bay so will just increase our nights there.

We've stayed at 3 US hotels so far, Royal Pacific, Portofino Bay and Cabana Bay. The first 2 were because we wanted front of line passes - expensive hotels, but worth it for the p[asses. However, last year we just needed 1 night as my husband and daughter were doing the Halloween Horror Night so we decided to try one of the 'value' hotels and we were so impressed with it! Absolutely blew the socks off Disney's value resorts (and we LOVE Disney), and we got a family suite for the fraction of the cost that Disney charge. Sapphire Falls looks lovely too, but we went for Cabana Bay as the pool has a lazy river and our son loves a lazy river. I'd happily stay at any though

Also, you can pool hop at Universal, unlike Disney, but not sure if they might restrict this under the current circumstance.

I've got 7 nights at POFQ and 5 nights at the Polynesian. The Poly nights are complimentary. So I'm thinking about ditching POFQ for Sapphire Falls then I'll do my 5 nights at the Poly. I won't have Disney tickets then but I won't mind mooching around the resort and Disney Springs.

Great reviews! So pleased to hear about Cabana Bay! I absolutely love the theming in it! Very retro so up my street! We’ve booked a Volcano view room & it looks amazing!

Honestly, we were so impressed with it. The food court was pretty good too - lots of variety and not too badly priced. I'd happily spend a week there again

Cabana Bay has great pools too. We could easily have spent the day in the resort rather than the parks.

The views are pretty good too. Thunderstorms are amazing in the tower rooms
