    Talk to me about renting DVC points vs paying for a regular room

    Specifically Wilderness Lodge, but in general too. I know you do not get Mousekeeping every day, but we would be ok with that. How many towels would be in a studio? Are the toiletries in the rooms the same? Is there a major difference in the views from the rooms? Is there a difference...

    Dolphin interaction

    When my husband and I went to SeaWorld in 1998 for our honeymoon, we were able to feed and touch the dolphins. Are you still able to do that without paying extra? The website makes it seem like you have to pay $15 to be able to do this at Dolphin Cove. Thanks!

    Bags on rides

    Autographs

    Is it a big thing at Universal like it is at Disney for the kids to get autographs? Or is it more just photo ops? I just don't want to lug around autograph books if they don't sign, but don't want to be without if they do sign. Thanks!
