It’s the most wonderful time of the year, friends! It’s Halloween Horror Nights!

The one time a year you can visit Universal Studios Florida and see 8 brand-new attractions for a limited time. I’m a HUGE fan of the event. This is my 8th year attending and the event has evolved quite a bit since my first visit. The use of properties like the Walking Dead have brought in higher amounts of crowds than usual. So what happens when you have only one night at the event but you wanna see everything? It’s hard, but it can be done. Here’s some tips!

5. Early Entry/Stay & Scream

*please note that these options require a separate day admission to Universal Orlando*

The earlier you arrive, the better. So why not arrive really early and enjoy the attractions that both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure have to offer? Both parks offer a “Stay & Scream” early admission for park guests with tickets for Halloween Horror Nights. The benefit of Stay & Scream is that you can jump start your Horror Night experience before the event officially opens.

This year, guests inside The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley are also being offered this privilege. Just proceed to the gateway on the London waterfront nearest Fear Factor Live. Diagon Alley/London are NOT open to guests of Halloween Horror Nights.
