We have 28 days until we arrive at Disney. We will be at Universal on Sept 17th.
I keep wondering if 1 week will be enough time. I suppose if it's not, I'll have another good reason to go back next year. I'm already thinking of trying to include 2 weekends of HHN.

As for being a pro about giving out advice

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO. what a ride!

1 week for the entire vacation or 1 week at the darkside?

refresh my memory, i forgot and i'm relaxed with a jack and coke right now.....




hhn virgins usually get sucked into repeat trips and longer stays.....

you'll be back, as arnold would say.

when you start planning for vacation 2013, you'll know you're hooked.


i always schedule to hitting hhn 4 nights in a row.

thinking about adding more to my hhn adventure this year.



hopefully the blood bags will be at hhn this year.
be sure to buy at least 3 of them.
it will prevent you from being scared.

1 month in all. 3 weeks at Disney and 1 week at Universal.
hhmmmm..jack and coke sounds tasty.

4 nights in a row for hhn sounds awesome. That will be us next year.

So what are you thinking of adding this year?

Blood bags?!
So I'll need 3 and DH will need 3?
How do they prevent you from being scared?

The houses, years, themes all run together for me.

However, have to say that I loved the year with the Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th House, etc. Of all of them, that is the one I remember most. Maybe because someone, who shall remain nameless, told Jason to breathe in my ear when we were in the Friday the 13th house. I turned around fully expecting to see my husband, but instead saw Jason in full costume right in my face .....

Not only did I almost pee my pants and scream bloody murder, but let's just say it wasn't made any better by my (nameless, instigator) friend who tried to say, "Jodie! Jason was just going to tell you everything is OK. It's just fake!!"

Yeah, you know who you are ....

I know Saturday is the busiest day for HHN, but which is the busiest between Friday and Sunday? We are trying to make it mid October. We went on Sunday last year, which was our first time, and it wasn't too bad. We bought express passes

Saturdays are always the busiest night...Fridays aren't a lot better but go Friday night if you can.

Blood bags are an alcoholic concoction they sell during HHN. It's a gelatin type substance served in a bag and looks like blood.

We went on Fri, Sat, Sun over a weekend last year. Friday was packed with high school and middle school kids. Same on saturday. Sunday was glorious. It was like adult swim. I'm going to try to hit up two sundays this year.

for me, thursdays are better than sundays for non peak night crowds.

sundays are better crowdwise than fridays.

I've heard from a very reliable source the first weekend is not too bad for crowds. Is Friday better than Saturday on this first weekend? What are the crowds like?

Where do you purchase them? From a street vendor? A ghost? A zombie?
