HHN Plans and Tickets

I have booked a package though a travel agent. Staying S-W at WDW and transferring to Universal Hard Rock on Thurs. I purchased Express tickets for HHN and plan to be at Finnegans at 4:30 pm. Last year I received my daytime park tickets at the hotel kiosk. Where would I get my HHN Express tickets?

Also I want to book a tour on Friday night. Hope they are made available soon to complete my package

Are there any benefits to AP nights? Other than a holding area? We're going to be there for 2 of them.

I just went looking and found this from last years event. 5P is earlier than S&S would allow entrance. Looking forwad to more details on this.

And on September 23, 24, 30, and October 1, Premier and Preferred passholders for Universal Orlando can get early admission for the passholder and one guest through an exclusive passholder-only entrance at Universal Studios. Inside, passholders will be able to access The In Between and The Forsaken haunted houses from 5-6:30pm and the Nevermore house as early as 5:45pm – 6:30pm, before the general public is admitted. These houses will be located near the back of the park, by Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone.

Passholders will also receive early access on those dates for the first showing of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure, on a first come, first served basis. It’s recommended passholders show up at 30 minutes prior to show time.

I don't recall anything other than maybe a free lanyard.

Yes, I seem to remember them escorting us to the houses about 30 min before they let the S&S area out.

Thanks! I'm thinking we'll check it out one night and do S&S another.

Really? So it would be better to be in that line then? Does the line start outside the park? TIA

No, they have a specific holding area inside the park. As far as being better, eh, we still ended up doing about the same number of houses before the crowds got in as we do for S&S. The downside is - nowhere to get a drink or a bite to eat. It was cool to do it once, but we skipped it on the remaining nights and opted for Finnegan's instead.

Try it on the first night you're there and see how you like it. Then you can either do it again or hang out at Finnegan's.

Yeah, that's what we did. Tried it the first night to see how it was.
