Resort Arrival Dining Rec

We’re going on a multi-gen family trip to Universal and WDW. For Universal, we’re doing 2 nights at LRP and one park day. I had everything planned and now my brother’s family decided to join us at Universal (they were originally just meeting us at WDW). They have 4 kids so now the group dynamic is changing and I am wondering if I should revise my plans.

We arrive at MCO at 2 PM. I have reservations for Toothsome at 6 PM that I successfully changes to 15 (10+5). Now that we’re so kid-heavy, I think the kids aren’t going to want to leave the resort to get dinner. Is there a good resort dining option at LRP? I think the kids are just going to want to be at the pool. I know the pool at LRP doesn’t have a slide but it does have a kids play area. Should we head to a better pool and/or resort dining option?

The kids are 9,9,8,7,7,4 and 3. I’m probably over-thinking this. Planning for this many people is stressful!

I’d stick with your plans. RP restaurants are so-so. The kids will LOVE Toothsome.

Tell them it’s time for a boat ride.

That may be a little too much commotion for a big group on arrival day.


Royal Pacific is so close to CityWalk it’s insane, it’s barely a 10-minute walk to Toothsome from the hotel pool.


Oh, I hadn’t thought about the water taxi option! Should we get off at CityWalk or HRH? It looks like Toothsome is closer the HRH.

Yes, CityWalk drop off is closer even though Toothsome is across the water.

The water taxis are direct, not a loop like at Cresent Lake.
