Universal's Royal Pacific Pool

Our trip is booked for the end of June, so I am expecting it to be HOT HOT HOT!

I do not really care for the heat, but that's when my sons b-day is!

How do you like the pool at RPR?

Does it have room for a lot of people? Heat + Busy season = Crowds!

Are there areas with shade?

Do people claim their loungers at the crack of dawn? I really hate that!

Are there activities for 12 and 13 year olds? Last year at Disney, POR's pool activities were really just for the 6 and under crowd. My kids weren't interested.

Should we consider a pool hop day over to the hard rock?

Not sure you are allowed to "pool hop" at the Universal resorts, so be sure to find out for sure before you try it.

It will be plenty hot enough at the end of June for pools anywhere. Can anyone comment on the RP's pool area?

It has been a few years since I was there, but the pool area at the RP is huge, so I don't think pool hopping should be considered even if it is allowed. I was always there in the fall, so there was not a shortage of loungers, but I can't speak for the summer months.

See this for pictures of the pool area, so you can see how big it is:

Thanks..the pool area does look large and very nice.

Yes pool hopping is not only allowed but encouraged according to some on the disboards. You can get pool towels at any pool with your resort key.

The hard rock has a slide, so the kids may want to go there one day.

Anyone else have any summer experience?
