For those looking at the end of August, RPR has APH rate for Aug 27-30 for $189. It unfortunately doesn’t cover my first two nights so switching my $213/night rate wouldn’t make sense but I hope it’ll help someone!
The APH rate at SF is mind bogglingy cheap for my September dates, but considering the influx of visitors that will be descending upon Orlando this year in September, I’m just not willing to stay without EP’s.Yeah, for my close to end of August PBH, no AP rate I've seen, but decent enough SMSM rate so far.
Did get an AP rate for beginning of October, at SF, better than SMSM rate.
Have a very bizarre trip coming up in August (can go in to more detail if ppl like) where I'm doing the following:
APH rate for Thursday 8/15 at cabana bay: 124
Hotwire deal rate for Royal Pacific Friday 8/16: 291
APH rate for Saturday 8/17 Aventura: 144
APH rate for Sunday 8/25 and Monday 8/26 at Portofino Bay: 284 for deluxe room
Not sure how I ended up hotel hopping to 4 different hotels in one trip but there you have it.
APH discounts are available Thursday and Sunday nights at HRH. Check each night separately. Weekends are harder to find. Keep checking, more may become available. Like Disney they have a limited # of rooms for the discount and weekends go quicker. These rates came out a couple of weeks ago and filled up quickly especially weekends.November 14-18, 2019 is lacking in all discount rates for the premier resorts (no APH, no SMSM). I'm hoping something is released eventually.... If not, I might have to do a split stay which I'd rather avoid.
Does this time of year usually not offer APH discounts?
We are booked Oct 24th- Oct 28th at HRH for the future rock star suites paying something like $640 a night im starting to think i can get a pool view with double beds for me, husband and my 12 yr old twins. And have money left over for souvenirs trying to think which way to go before all the rooms disappear. If i go the pool view room i have to cut my rooms by one day because the 24th have no rooms left that i can see the hotel doesnt even list when i choose that day.Does anyone know if they ever offer the Future Rock Star Suites for AP rates?
I currently have a SMSM rate of $336 for Club King booked Sept 3-8 but am hoping for something better but it seems all Club Kings are sold out for these dates as they aren't showing as available anymore so my hopes are dwindling.
We would love a suite so the kids can sleep in a different room but I can't justify the cost difference as $336 is already a high rate.
I think they would subtract the cost of a base-level two day pass and subtract if from the base-level AP. My experience is that they don't take into account what you paid UT they look at the ticket value.I'm hoping someone could verify if I'm understanding Universal's AP rates and upgrading tickets. I have purchased a buy 2 get 3 free ticket from Undercover Tourist, for $276. Can I now upgrade this ticket when I arrive at Cabana Bay to an AP for the difference of an additional $28 ($304.99 for the pass) and then use that for the AP hotel rate? Also, if that's the case, do I cancel my first reservation and book a new one, or call to change the original reservation? Thanks for any help.
Your time period is including the Columbus Day weekendI need AP rates for October. Specifically the 2nd week. Normally discounts are available with the SMSM but nothing thus far.
Thanks Mac raven! It’s really the 3rd week. My dates are 10/16-1/20. We’ve gone this time frame for the past 3yrs now and normally rates/discounts have been released for my dates by now. Then I could upgrade my standard to a water view but this year it’s looking bleak. How do you know when AP rates are released? Is there a special website or something?Your time period is including the Columbus Day weekend
Huge crowds during that time period and hotel rates affect it
Weekends are packed
I booked my room over 11 months out for this fall
Smsm was at the lower rate back then
But many peeps change plans and cancel their reservation which could open up more chances for you to book
Ap rate could open up for you then
If you plan on staying M-T-W onsite, might be able find a room
Deluxe hotels stay quite full
Not sure how full the others ones will be this far out
Hope you do find a room with a decent rate for UO
