Kate Bus - Kansai Airport to Universal City Hotel

Hi there

I'm planning to either take a Kate Bus from Kansai International Airport to Universal Port Hotel in Universal City Station on my arrival on 10 Dec afternoon or my departure on 17 Dec morning.

I need to know if I can make any advance booking and to secure a seat as there will be 5 of us traveling with young kids and 2 big luggages & 2 hand luggages.

Otherwise, would appreciate if you could advise other bus companies which can prebook the seat & make advance booking.

Thanks again for your help!
