OK, I read the first and last few pages. I have never been to Universal before but planning a trip for first week of June 2020. It looks like the possibility of APH rates will not be released until Feb most likely. Am I correct in this thinking?

    I have a one night stay booked at HRH for mid Dec. will we have express pass for the day we check in as well as the day we check out? I know I booked it with an APH discount back in June but the site isn’t showing our room level as even being available anymore.

    Yes. You need to stop by the hotel before entering the park to checkin even though room likely won’t be ready

    Sounds like the night is currently sold out, inventory changes often

    MY APH rate at CBBR just dropped for November! Went from $104/$129 weekends to $94/$114 weekend. Saved me $70 plus tax. It wouldn't let me modify online at first because it said I wasn't changing anything, so I added a non-existent child to my reservation and then it let me save the change to the lower rate.

    Has anyone ever seen an APH rate come out after Christmas/through New Years? Currently debating a (MUCH) cheaper three day trip first week of December vs the 29th-2nd. Would love to experience New Years Eve there, but hotel prices and flights are double and triple what I’m finding for early December. Mostly want to see all the Christmas decorations, so unless there’s any chance of an APH rate coming out that week in between the two holidays we’ll probably go for the earlier dates.

    I'm another example that you have to keep on checking the rates. We are only staying one night after our cruise on Saturday September 28th, a Saturday night stay during HHN. Wanted to stay at SF, but all rates were high. Ended up booking off property and resigned to the fact that we wouldn't be going. Fast forward to yesterday. An APH rate popped up for SF that was $60 cheaper than the previous Seasonal rate that had been the only one available for months. :cool1:Keep checking everyone!!

    Do you just call the regular reservations number to check for AP rates or do you need to call the passholder number? Do I need to purchase it first or as long as I have the voucher/pass when I get there I am OK? It must have been a while but I seem to recall being able to book online with the APH code but I guess not anymore.

    There's a link in the first post that you can use to check rates. You don't have to have an AP to book - we haven't bought ours yet despite having booked an AP rate. We're not purchasing until a couple of weeks out from our stay. From what I understand you need to have the AP at check in but also read you may not even need it at check in so long as you show it to the front desk staff at some point in your stay.

    I'm not seeing where I can click to add the AP code for the rate. Now, I'm looking at dates that may not have an AP rate which could easily be the issue. is it already in when you use the link on the first page? I've tried the Loews site, and the universal site and can't see where it says to click to put in the code.

    Keeping in mind I'm often wrong, yet never uncertain, can someone direct me?
    Thanks

    Yes, it is already in when you use the link on the first page. Keep in mind that AP rates get added at different times for both hotels and types of rooms so may need to keep checking. Good luck!

    yeah, we've got our return trip for next year already booked but i'm hoping to score a FP hotel for a night at an AP rate. Well, the FP hotel and the regular hotel at that rate but I know i'm early. I just remember seeing a note that said we don't have that rate available right now on top over the dates once you put them in. I'm not seeing that anymore which is what threw me off.

    Did Loews change their booking site? It looks like it’s just redirecting to the USO booking page vs. using Loews direct. Can’t use it to check aPH rates.

    So how does it work if I purchase an AP and book the hotel at an AP rate before traveling to Orlando? Do I have to go somewhere to process the AP at the parks? Can I enter the parks on my voucher in the morning and then get it processed?
