Universal does not have a resort fee but does have a parking charge.

I could be wrong, but I thought the Universal prices don't include all the add on cost. Disney was the opposite, but now they also don't include the parking add on that they didn't used to have. Please correct me if I am wrong. I seem to remember this on our last stay at Universal. For instance, the resort fee wasn't included on the online price

Also crazy is the "Value" stripped down motels are $189-$238... I just stayed at the Dolphin last weekend for $160. The Value Resorts are a horrible deal...funny that they were meant to be a value option and the prices are just outlandish...especially for the quality of the accomodations.

Just picking a random week October 4th- 11th... some price comparisons from Undercover Tourists Hotel Price (nightly rate for cheapest room at resort) Value Level Resorts $189 - $238 Moderate Level Resorts $268-$342 Deluxe Resorts $522-$710 Disney Springs (non-Disney) $76 - $159 Swalphin $231-244 ($265-$284 on the Marriott Website) Swan Reserve $294 (not listed on Undercover Tourist Yet) Universal Hotels (no express pass) $98-$157 Universal hotels (with express pass) $230-$264 FOUR SEASONS RESORT ORLANDO AT WALT DISNEY WORLD $862 (not cheapest on UT) I find it crazy I can stay at the Swalphin (with EMH, 60 day FP plus, walk or boat to EPCOT and DHS, and free bus to MK and AK) for ~$260 a night ($30 resort fee I believe). OR Go to USO and never wait in line and walk to the parks for $230. That is crazy compared to anything Disney is offering at similar prices (All star music, POP and AOA)

Seriously. I wish we could make upper management watch that ending. Not that it would change anything, but awareness never hurts.

Better yet, skip to 37:42 (through the end, which that almost is) and tell me current management hasn't lost their way... ... BTW, thank you for this. I'd never seen it before.

My point I suppose is that it doesn't matter that its a cat 5, the price is basically the same as the Swan and Dolphin, dollars and points. This is just another option for the conference/convention clientele that will be newer and s bit more modern.

mgf13 days ago

Because it is the under-developed, poorly thought out, across the parking lot, across the street, overflow venue for a nicer set of hotels? This should have been a cat 5 to pull the non-convention stays out of the S&D so that their conference room blocks wouldn't sell out any more (and they did sell out frequently pre-covid). And no, executives will not stay at this downgraded hotel.

Thank you. Looks nice... Not terribly unique, but nice. Modern. Then all the guests will have to run the Death Race 2021 Gauntlet to get to across the street to the park When we were there last weekend we saw a few people scatter crossing the road...which is curved...So the sightlines are not great for a pedestrian crossing...

They are not. I posted this a few pages ago that they had intended to build the bridge but pulled that plan. It will be a mess on Epcot Resorts Drive.

Are there mock up images of the interior of this hotel out there? I don't recall seeing any. We stayed at the Dolphin last weekend and had a great view of the construction... It looks far away from a June 1st opening still... but it can happen I suppose... I hope they plan on putting a pedestrian bridge in...

I really like the graphics on the building and the interior.. very nice, and the balloons in the previous picture are for my birthday in less than an hour. Thank you much. I say its my birthday. Wed,

Understood. I think for the most part, in the near future, prices are still in that $200 range (just checked a few weekends in March and April). I think they would be doing themselves a disservice if they priced them that way in the Fall, knowing that personal and business travel will hopefully pick up by then.
