    So I see. Missed the "H"

    Generally if you stay 3 nights it is less than the APH rate in any case.

    Will be 5 nights if the price is right. I've checked the stay more rates and still above budget for universal section of our trip - had to increase the budget Disney part due to to changes in Disney free dining, so staying at SSR now instead of CSR. I'm checking Loews site daily....

    The stay more will be the best rate then, you can book now to ensure a room (they take one night as deposit) and if the rate changes up to 5 days before your stay you can rebook at the lower rate. At 5 days the deposit is non-refundable if you cancel, up to then it is fully refundable

    I actually checked the stay more rate and it came out average $257 per night for Portofino, HRH about the same. The budget is going to be $200 per night max, and RPR was not available. If I can't get any cheaper I am considering staying offsite at a town home in Vista Cay, rather than Cabana bay. We will have a hire car.

    Are you factoring in the express pass that would be included with HRH or Portofino? If you don't care about that Sapphire Falls might be what you want. You do have to pay for parking if you have a car and if you stay onsite you may not need one.
