So I have finally committed to taking the trip to Universal from May 11 to May 15. We're planning on staying at the RPR, with an average night at $207. This sounds pretty fantastic to me. I know the general recommendation is to stay away from the packages, since you can't alter your hotel reservation prices, but would it be worth it with the $50 gift card they are now offering as a promotion? I don't know how much lower the RPR would get, so I'm just curious. The gift card would easily be spent in full on food while at the parks.
