Loews is extending a discounted rate for extended stays to Family Forward guests, which is good 3 days before and 3 days after the retreat. The rate is $179 plus taxes and fees. This rate is also good for additional rooms booked during the event.

 

Attendees who want to stay in a room type other than what comes standard with this package will have the option to upgrade at their own cost for a discounted rate and subject to availability. Only those who stay at the event hotel before or after the event will be able to take advantage of Universal's Unlimited Express Passes (no exceptions).
