I wonder if RPR APR rates are gone by now. I usually see PBH and RPR come up before HRH. I don't usually see HRH until like a couple of months. PBH is nice. It's my favorite. We usually stay at HRH, even if it's more expensive, because my son and husband prefer it, mostly for proximity and room size compared to RPR.
I've been checking every day since before Xmas. The only APH dates for rpr that have come up for June have been for suites with lowest price at 926 per night. Nothing less, but lots more. I'm hoping for portofino bay/garden view double queen rooms. They have them for 3 of the 5 nights, but only king for the other 2 I need

I’m wondering if they have taken rooms out of inventory at RPR doesn’t seem like much availability even with no discount for the first week June.

I know they are going to be remodeling the lobby, but I haven't heard of any room refurbs. Plus, they did a massive refurb back in 2015 or 2016.

    Does anyone know if/when AP discounts come out for Dec.? Looking at RPR this time, kids don't care much for HRH. Also, do the bathrooms at PBR have the sinks inside the bathroom with the toilet and shower? I was told this was the case years ago, that's why we never stayed there (I'm the only female, can't get ready w/o mirror and sink if everyone else is in the bathroom). TIA!

    I just changed our SMSM rate to AP rate. I was able to upgrade from a Bay View room at Portofino to a deluxe room for a difference of $17 for 5 nights! Only deluxe rooms available for our dates August 14-19.

    I see you have the answer to your other questions - so I will answer this one for you. :teeth: Yes, the sinks are inside the bathroom with the toilet and shower. That is the only negative I have with the PBH rooms. Like you, I am the only female and need the mirror to put my makeup on so it holds everyone up. Luckily, I can do it in 5 minutes flat. :p

    I've been patiently [heck no] waiting for APH rates to come out for Memorial Day weekend. Last year they came out on April 12th - so far this year, nothing. We are staying 3 nights May 25 - 28. I was able to get an APH rate at PBH [$234] for the night of May 27th but it looks like we'll be paying rack rate for the first 2 nights. :scared: I'm seriously thinking about just staying at WDW for all 10 nights, but my son loves Universal before WDW . . . and I do, too.

    Have been obsessively checking APH rates for my August dates and they just popped up but they are more than what I have already booked. Bummer!

    You’ll love the deluxe room at PBH! We had one last time, and it was a bay View in the West Wing. Loved it.

    Oh my gosh, thanks! Today was crazy busy and I forgot to check this morning! Thanks so much for posting!

    Yay, our RPR one night stay has been reduced from $319 (pre-tax) to $224 (pre-tax) for 3 adults and one 15 year old.

    However our CBBR stay would actually increase $52 using the APH rate instead of the SMSM rate we booked.

    Now I just need Air Miles to post the new Universal Studio tickets. Wish they would hurry up!

    Ditto. I booked both Endless Summer and Caribbean Beach (because I can't decide) and both are over $100 more with the APH as opposed to the SMSM rate. I'll keep my eyes open though, things could change.

    That's too funny. I'm in the same boat. I can't decide either. I like the cheaper rate at Endless Summer and I LOVE the look/color of the 2 bdrm suite much better than CBBR (I'm not a big fan of red/orange)... but I like the pool/activity area at CBBR better and the idea of being able to walk to the parks or take the boat from Sapphire or RPR

    I'm just waiting for the reviews to come in on Endless Summer. We don't go till October so I'm sure I'll see and hear lots before then. After that the big decision will be made. Time will tell.

    FYI, I'm staying 7 nights starting that same weekend and have also been checking regularly since June 2018. I only ever saw APH rates for Mon through Thurs nights which matches what you saw for May 27, and the rates were higher overall than the SMSM rates I had so I didn't book them.

    Now that the AP rate is out for my dates Aug 21-25, is it worth it to pay $35 more total for a pool view at CBBR? Thanks!

    Same! I guess this means we can stop checking now? Or do they sometimes add more later?
