Portofino can still land some really nice AP discounts now and then, been seeing some good ones around Horror Nights. An agreed about the value, even with PB still being the most expensive hotel at the resort (so far), it's still more affordable than most Deluxe hotels at WDW.Portofino used to be much more reasonable price wise, especially if you got the 6 or 7 day booked discount. But it's prices have jumped more than the other Universal resorts the past few years. That said,
it's still a much better value than any of the Disney deluxe resorts....and you can't beat the Hotel unlimited Express pass. Portofino is a really wonderful resort overall.
