Just a head’s up: I happened to recheck the AP rates for the week of July 4th, and they went down across the board, dropping RPR from $465 to $430/night, and Aventura as well. HRH also dropped by an equal amount. I rebooked both RPR and Aventura and saved another $96. Since I advance paid for the crazy high Express Passes for Volcano Bay for our last day, I’ll take savings wherever I can get them.
If you’re planning a trip around then, you should check back to see if rates got better. It didn’t look like the regular seasonal rates had moved that much, they were still above $700/night.
I guess I should just continue to keep checking back.
Oh. Actually, weird. The TM on the phone wasn’t able to find a better AP discount for our Dockside room (the 2-bedroom suite). But after I hung up and I looked on-line for the same room using the AP discount, it was $200 cheaper. So I just booked it as a new reservation, and then cancelled the original. Not sure why she couldn’t do it over the phone.
So, all said, this new AP rate saves us a combined $280. And that doesn’t include whatever savings my DS and DDIL can get on their room.
