I was really surprised by the prices coming up when I was searching the Universal resorts trying to figure out when we could sneak in another trip with our APs. SO expensive!!! I'm glad they were able to get you an AP price and for the Portofino, at that! It's a gorgeous resort, and the one that got us hooked on the water taxi. lol Hopefully Beach Club comes through for you. DD should have a great time with her friend able to come along.
