    how far in advance are rooms usually released for APH rate; looking to stay from Nov 26 to 28

    called and don't have any rooms available at the 3 hotels that have express pass included

    thanks for the help
    No rooms available or no rooms with an AP rate? That's around Thanksgiving, and they may not release a discount. I never got one for HRH last Thanksgiving.

    limited rooms available, no AP rate rooms at all

    probably smarter to just book what I can now

    didn't realize American Thanksgiving was so late this year, it has messed with my plans a bit

    It's usually better to just go ahead and book at a rate that you like. You can always change if a discount comes out. That's what I always do. US Thanksgiving is always the 4th Thursday of the month, I believe.

    Does anyone have a guess when they will release AP rates for January? Do they tend to release AP rates for all the hotels at the same time?
    If you look back through this thread, people mention getting AP rates for Jan-Feb in early October. I think they announce rates for all the resorts at once, but definitely not all categories of rooms come out at the same time. I always find myself booking a more expensive category then checking frequently until the cheaper rooms become available at the rate. Last year the first rooms I could get an AP rate for at CB were family suites, but standard rooms eventually came out.

    I have a room for Feb booked at the Stay More, Save More rate which I will cancel and rebook when the AP rates come out.

    Thanks, that's very helpful! I haven't been looking for January AP rates since my 2012 trip, so I'm really rusty. :)

    Booked a 2 queen at HRH for $234 11/17-11/21. Was hoping for a king, but we can squeeze for the location and price.

    Congrats. I'm hoping they open up the following week; we're going Nov 23-27. Currently only have SMSM for those dates (I've looked every day for the last 3 weeks or so). I've got an APH room at PBH in case HRH falls through...

    do they ever open up weekends? seems like it's always sun-thurs
    I’m seeing the thurs & fri i need, just not at ‘the right’ property :) Only values. Opposite when a few dates popped up for our Oct trip. it was all suites at the FOTL hotels then offered, now, nothing

    DH has been pestering me to try CB for years for a short visit, he’s all about the pools. Now, Aventura is on his radar too. Both are on PH rate. May just book one of them to have a placeholder for upcoming trip

    My Dad has gotten used to us staying a few nights at a Universal Deluxe whenever my DH and I visit. So he asked if we were doing it this Christmas. Two years ago we stayed at Portofino. Three years ago we did Hard Rock. A week or so ago, I was able to get 1 night @ $219 at RPH, but days on either side were $319. So I just booked the one, and could tell both DH and my Dad were bummed it was only 1 night. I had a bit of a brainstorm overnight that we could stay the 2nd night at a lower tier hotel and not really miss out on Express.

    So we are checking in bright and early 12/17 to RPH, using Express on 12/17, 12/18. Staying at Sapphire Falls 12/18, then we will do breakfast on 12/19 at one of the buffets before heading back to my Dad's.

    I checked rates for my mid-November stay at CBBR tonight and not only had my rates dropped but I also saw this at the top of the screen:

    Receive a $50 Food & Beverage Credit when you stay 3 nights or more at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort between 11/3/19 – 12/25/19. Must be booked by 8/31/19* *Minimum of three (3) night stay required. Promotional offer is valid for travel between 11/03/19 – 12/25/19. Offer must be booked by 8/31/19.

    You do have to cancel and rebook to get the food/beverage credit.

    Did you book it? Have read a few comments as to those that did but didn’t see the FBC appearing anywhere on their confirmation.

    Nothing shows on my confirmation, either. I took a screen shot of the offer just in case - hopefully everything will be good on their end and it shows at check-in.
