Just booked PBH Bay view room for July 19-23 with APH rate.

July 19,20 - $269 night
July 21,22 - $249 night

I was originally booked at RPR on a AAA rate for the same days, but the APH rate at PBH turned out to be a better deal. I called universal to make these changes. Now I may consider changing back to RPR or even try HRH if APH rates come out for those hotels, but PBH is fine with us.

ultimate_ed, when walking from PBH to the parks, there is a shortcut you can take through the HRH parking lot that cuts a good 5-10 minutes off the trip. Someone in the past posted the route here in the forums, I will try and find it, or you can use google maps and kind of figure out the route that way as well. I remember walking across the street down the main entrance to the HRH, then turning right where the gates are leading to the parking lot, walking to the end of the parking lot behind the hotel to a "secret path" that led us right to the entrance point where security performs bag checking.

Is it possible to find out what the rate would be on the hotels website IF you have APH/AAA ? (ie to see whether it would be worth getting an APH or AAA)

call the reservation number on the UO website.
The TM you speak with can give you the total costs per discounted cards.

i do this each time when i decide to book.

Well, I went ahead and did it. Switched from Royal Pacific to Portifino Bay. Had to give up the "Black Friday" free wifi, but, net cost increast to switch has come to $90 total for our four nights. And, I expect to offset some of that with the 10% discounts on dining and shopping. So, all in all, the AP is definitely going to be worthwhile for our trip. I even found a discount code for the annual pass that took $25 off the pass. Win all around thanks to the OP!
