Interesting I see PBH Garden view king for $369/nt ($394 on weekends) from the 12th to 19t, but no Hard Rock and only the Captains Presidential suite at RPR. Maybe a big convention?We are booked at Portofino August 12-19. I was checking sites because I’m neurotic about new rates opening up and looks like Portofino, HRH and RP are booked solid! Thank goodness we will have EP!
Not a big fan of the heat, but Florida isn't that much different than Maryland in summer... but the time period is when we usually go (has been Disney for last few years) and pick the time because crowds drop a little (not a lot, but some) as some schools go back. Why not thrilled to hear/see hotels selling out. Guess good will have EP.Best way to predict crowds is to look at when the parks normally close. They go to 9 pm towards the end of August, so weekdays, will not be as busy until the local schools let out. And locals come on weekends too.
And have to say, love it when it is hot. Water rides are fun and feel good when you are hot, and nice, warm nights.
That is good to know, we'll be there Wednesday... hopefully too hot for the regulars and nobody's skipping school!My daughter is there now and says crowds aren't that bad. This is her first time without EP (Mommy didn't pay for the trip) and isn't complaining about lines at all. She says the heat is horrid and we are from Alabama so it's got to be bad for her to complain
We like VB at night, especially while raining or just after a rain. Lower crowds and love the lights in the park. I would think Monday morning would be okay too, as local kids are back to school, and there may be some late risers after a party Sunday, that may not get to the park until later. I'm not sure what we are doing, but we may be doing Aquadica, since we have passes for that park, mainly because it does not open until 10 that morning.We are heading for our first trip tomorrow (Thursday) and I was also surprised to see that no more rooms are available. I'm super glad that we booked the Portofino. I wonder if it is so booked because of the "Annual Passholder's Night" on Sunday night? US closes at 8, and I'm wondering if it would be better to head to Volcano Bay that afternoon, and spend the evening there. We had been planning on Monday morning, but wondering if all the passholders will get up, tired, and decide that Volcano Bay is just the place to hang out Monday morning. Any advice on that?
