    We haven't cruised for almost a year and a half and am a little rusty! Has anyone tried to get the Hyatt recently that remembers the icons that helps to identify the hotel as they Hyatt MCO?

    Thanks so much!

    It's the only 4 star hotel near MCO with a 95% approval rating.

    I've see it come up many times but not at a great price. I played around with hotwire checking various dates for almost 10 months just to see if it ever came up at the $59 dollar quote I have seen here and it only happened once.

    Be sure to enter 2 adults/2 kids to make it show up. Anything less and it will allow the Renaissance to pop up. Lately, it seems to only show up maybe 1-2 weeks prior and price is outrageous ($175) except for Sunday nights. That's must be their slowest night. I used to get it often but lately I've given up.

    My parents will be cruising with us in Nov & they can get the senior rate which is like $129 + tax. I think that's the best we'll do besides the Stay Certificates.

    I saw it pop up today for 4/13 but at $177. Passed it up. Would have to be a lot cheaper than that for me to give up my $52 /night at the Wingate by Wyndam.

    Not to mention you could simply book direct from Hyatt.com at that rate or sometimes better with AAA, and have the opportunity to cancel if necessary. I don't know who on earth would buy at that rate.

    I have one booked for 2-25 at aAAA rate of $302! I know that's outrageous, but we get in late. Hoping to get it cheaper.

    I'm seeing $294 for a special hypo allergenic room and includes breakfast for 2. Did you get that deal?

    Wow, I've never seen it so high. :guilty:

    It varies. There have been times when it shows on my date 3 mos in advance and other times it doesn't show until a week prior.

    Lately though, every time I see it, the price is the same as what I can book directly through Hyatt or even higher. :headache:

    I've seen it show up on lastminuetravel.com frequently for $113 and $114.
    Lastminutetravel is like Hotwire where they do not tell you the hotel until after you book. But unlike the guessing game with Hotwire, I've learned how to positively identify the hotel on lastminutetravel.

    On the results page, if you hover your cursor over the Description or Maps & Directions hotlink, you will see a link in the bottom of your browswer. Take note of the numbers following the left parenthesis (

    On a 2nd browser, open the following link
    http://www.touricoholidays.com/en/PageHotelDetail.aspx?hotelId=3037&provider=localTgsProvider

    Then replace the 3037 with the number that you received from lastminutetravel. That will then open the page to the hotel that you would 'win' if you purchase through lastminutetravel.

    The Hyatt MCO is 2825.

    I have used lastminutetravel for several Disneyland trips and always know exactly what hotel I'm getting.

    Try through Costco as well.

    For less than that you can buy a Stay Certificate directly through Hyatt.

    The availability through Hyatt directly for my dates was limited to more expensive rooms. For some reason Priceline had a regular ole room on their site. I assumed the stay certificate wouldn't be valid for the upgraded rooms through Hyatt.

    Yes, I believe the stay cert is only for standard rooms. :thumbsup2

    Thank you sooooo much. I just did this and was able to book the Hyatt for $91 plus taxes (total $103) for September 21, 2012 for my son and I. Thank you so very very much!

    Wow! It's great to hear that the Hyatt is still with LMT. :cool1: I checked so many times over the past year, without seeing it, that I gave up. Last time we got it was this time last year for our Nov 2011 trip for my parents.

    Thanks!

    THANK YOU!!! I just got this for our August cruise!!! At LMT for 102! Woo Hoo!!! Oh darn, I realized I didn't put in that we had 3 people. Yikes. Will this be a problem?! Can I just call the hotel?

    Also...how do you figure out what the hotel numbers are. LOVE the fact that you can figure out which hotel they are for sure! You gotta tell us the secret! ;)
