Annual Pass Holder (APH) rates are currently available through:

2/13/20



APH rate availability and the new release days tend to be rather random and unannounced.

This thread is a community based one, designed to help Universal Annual Pass Holders secure any discounted rates that may apply to their dates of stay. Please report your dates/findings of APH rates here, in order to help others secure their discounted lodging rates.


Who is eligible to book an APH rate?:

*APH rates are a perk & limited to those who have a valid APH at the time of arrival.

*Be prepared to produce an APH at checkin for validation or you risk being charged the current rack rate.

*If you need to upgrade existing tickets to an APH or plan on purchasing one when at the parks, you are required to return to the hotel’s checkin desk that day to show proof.


How do I search for and book an APH rate?:

Direct Loews Hotels link to book APH rates at the Loews Universal hotels:

    Is this the thread to watch for new 2020 APH discount releases? It looks like discounts are out through Feb 13th, and I'm waiting on the weekend of the 14th. :crazy2:

    I’ll take your word for it, thanks!

    this is a community driven info type of thread.

    please post your findings as to date. What APH rate would also be helpful

    For the week of 1/13/20, the best "APH" rate I see for four people is $324 at HRH. Is that as good as it will get? That's not much different from what I've always paid without the AP. I thought this was a slowish time and rates would be down.

    Thanks,

    It looks like that's a deluxe 2 queen room? Personally, I'd book that, because I love that room type! But I'd keep an eye out for a lower rate room, because inventory does come and go. My guess is that you had a lower room category if you booked a similar rate without AP.

    Thank you for all this information! Looking at our trip, we can pay only $48 more for me to buy the AP instead of our 2-day 2-park ticket and I can change from the Surfside Inn to the Royal Pacific for only $259 total for our whole stay!

    Do you know if I can book two rooms with the AP rate since we are traveling with my in-laws? If so, that makes it an even better deal!

    We have only tried this once with the AP and were told that you need 1 AP per room. My wife and I each had one, but none of our adult daughters do. The person that checked us in said my wife had to go in one room and I had to go in the other. So that's the way we checked in. We had no intention of actually splitting the rooms that way.

    I didn't think about it until later, but that would have caused issues with our room keys opening the proper door. When we returned to get our room assignment (after they called us and said the room was ready), I explained to the person giving us our room and she had no issues moving us around to the proper rooms and still applying the discount.

    Does anyone know when Universal will open up the Marsh APH discounts?
    From the top post

    That's pretty accurate. The best advice is to just keep checking.

    Here's what I do: I use the windsurfers link in the first post and set my dates and room capacity, then save that link. Then I just have to click that link every few days and see if an AP rate pops up. Takes a few seconds to check.

    ETA: you can also just edit this part of that windsurfers URL: checkin=1/22/2018&nights=1&rooms=1&adults=2&children=0&promo=aph&iata=&group=&hotels=&ada=

    change the check in date, nights, rooms, adults, and children number as appropriate, then save that as your link to check monthly, weekly, daily, hourly, etc. ;)

    It doesn’t seem to be advertised but I just managed to get an AP rate at HRH for 20 December 2019 of US$ 254.

    To add to cshaaf's suggestion, if you create a folder of bookmarks in your browser (I use Chrome but assume other browsers are similar), you can then right-click on the folder and click "Open All" to open each bookmark in a separate tab. I save each date I'm potentially interested in and open them all up at once. Save tons of time vs changing the dates around in a single window.

    I booked two rooms with my AP pass last year at Royal Pacific. It was no problem. They actually gave me a key to both rooms and everyone else was assigned to a particular room.

    HTH!

    I guess like any answer when any level of customer service is involved, the answer is "It depends" ;)
    The site will let me book two rooms under my name both at the AP rate. I figure I will buy my AP direct from Universal and the rest will get two day tickets from UT. If I end up needing a second AP for the second room, I’ll just have my husband or sister-in-law upgrade their ticket to an AP that day.

    Thanks all!
