That would suck for everyone if it happened. The FL+ lines at CP are already jam packed without including every guest staying on the Peninsula. It's already been said that Breakers is a great value considering all of the factors and it offers a ton of conveniences. That, and you're going to take away FL+ sales considering at least two factors. 1) You'll get less revenue from the guests who were going to stay at the hotel and also buy the FL+ passes, but now they get it for free. 2) You're going to jam even more people into the FL+ lines, which will make it less appealing and less of a value for everyone else who purchased it.
I guess it just really irritates me to read comments like this, because I just feel like where do you draw the line? I think Hyatt hotels should give me a free lunch and free dinner to go along with the already provided good quality breakfast. After that, I think Hyatt should give me a free car to drive around during my stay. After that, I think Hyatt should give me a free massage with a happy ending.
Eventually, you have to stop wanting more for your money and realize that in order for awesome places like Cedar Point and Breakers to keep staying awesome they have to have a hefty profit margin to go along with it. Maybe I'm just being too reasonable with my concept of the business/consumer relationship...

Dude. It's never ever going to be Las Vegas. Breakers is located in between a beach and a world renowned amusement park. No, it doesn't have Broadway shows, but it has quite a few things to offer. It even included a hint of night life that you assumed it lacked.
I really hope you've stayed there before to back up your comments with some experience. I say that not to be a smartass, but I genuinely don't know if you've stayed at Breakers. If you haven't stayed there, maybe you should. I think you'd be surprised and then you'd actually have some experience for comparison. If you have stayed there within the last couple of years, I'm not sure what wasn't up to your standards.
I think realistic expectations are long gone. If everyone got what they wished for out of Hotel Breakers, just as an example, they would be outraged at the cost. You wouldn't hear the end of it.
I have to drive an hour to a park like SFSTL and I'm still thankful for it. And then I read posts like these...
