    Forgive me if this has been asked before or if it's in the wrong section.

    I'm trying to find out the list of benefits this pass offers and a list of restaurants it get's a discount at to make it justifiable.

    Would anyone know how much the discounts are when booking a on-site resort, in the parks and in the restaurants ?

    Thank you! :)

    We have our hotel booked with the Royal Pacific, staying there on their club level this August. We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel last October / November at club level and found the breakfast and snacks through-out the day was beneficial to us, specially as we have a 4 year old daughter.

    We also got married at the Portofino last November :wiggle:

    we loved it, and would recommend it to anyone.

    Im definitely swaying to get atleast one annual pass. what would be the best way to aquire one? through the hotel? or online and pick up when we get there? or would the prices be the same on the gate, at the hotel as it is online?

    If you don't want to pay for the entire thing up front you can sign up for the flex pay option. We've done that several times

    Not sure that option is open to outsiders, the other problem I see is that there is no shipment to the United kingdom, which is why I wanted to find out the best way to get one.

    I ordered mine online and then paid for the Fed Ex International delivery, it took less than a week to get here. I'm in the UK as well.

    Gave royal pacific a call and the price was the same as the website. Minus the postage. I think I'll buy it at the resort to save the hassle. :-D thanks everyone
