It looks to me like the APH price for HHN is the same as the Stay and Scream price. Am I looking at that correctly?

Yes. Makes sense when you figure that you technically already have admission and could do either ticket type.

[QUOTE=Metro West;45182815] Wait...are you buying single night tickets and wanting to upgrade to the ROF or am I not understanding your question?

Yes, for the first Friday event. Not sure if we want to do Friday and Saturday or just the one. If I bought them before we left would I be able to exchange that ticket for the ROF? Thanks Metro.......you know everything.

I believe last year the ROF with express was exactly the same price as the FFP with express.

I think so but I do S & S so we're in the park ready to go before the hotel people come in. The S & S holding area is released around 6pm you head for a house that's open early. The hotel guests entrance is only good if you don't have theme park tickets and would have to wait ouside. S & S is much better.
Wasn't that the crowd we saw coming in from the entrance last year?

Cheers!

You should be able to upgrade. Just make sure you aren't spending a lot of extra money. You might be better off just doing the ROF to begin with.

That sounds about right. I thought about doing the ROF but I like to go late in the month so that wouldn't work.

Tickets

If I already have a hotel and ticket package through AAA do I get my travel agent to add HHN tickets to my package or do I purchase tickets myself from the Website?

I want S & S for both nights Oct 25 and 26 and the a RIP tour for the 26th

i just did a quoting of 7 homies here and about to enter it and safari quit on me.

i hate when that happens.


briefly this is what i was posting,
hotel guests had the private entrance last year for hhn at a separate gate.
show the hotel key and your hhn tix and could enter at 6:00.
if the park is not officially opened yet, you are sent to the holding area/s&s.

rof w/ ff was promoted last year.
i bought it and it worked for the 4 nights i was there.
didn't need it for the night i booked the rip tour but still money ahead with it.
the rof w/ex was valid for the first 10 nights of hhn.
it's that way again.
did see the plus on the list for frequent fear pass.



the ap rates, ah........
last year the prices dropped a week or so after it was first published.
i always wait weeks before buying my pass.
over the years, i have seen it drop after it was posted online.
maybe prior sales months out from the event are low...?

the regular rof and FF/w+have a $15 discount w/ap.



upgrading from tickets to the promo passes?
if you bought them before leaving home and have not used them for hhn yet, you can upgrade at guest services when you get to the park.
don't know if that is possible to upgrade once you have used a night on them prior...
been doing hhn since '99 but haven't read of others experiences of upgrading.
i know you can switch the dates on pre ordered tickets.
if someone has done so, hopefully they will share here with their experience.

did read about the 'rumor' last month of no ep w/ the FF.
don't know if this is etched in stone but if it is, i'm sure those FF will still sell.

stay and scream or otherwise known as "add on" tickets are for those that have day tickets (or multiday passes).
in past years, those have been really cheap tickets.

disney 2 4, have your AAA agent tell you the order number of the UO tickets.
you can call and buy the s & s tickets then.
or if your agent can buy those discounted s & s hhn tix, let her.
stay and scream tickets are for those that have a day ticket to the park already.

You can go ahead and add the regular tickets if you'd like or you could do the HHN tickets at a later date...it's up to you. But you'll have to do the RIP Tour separately. I'm not sure if they've set up anything for the RIP Tour yet. Macraven would know for sure since she does it every year.

all RIP tours info have not been released yet.

they usually come out later after hhn dates and prices have been published.

Last year it was the first week of July when bookings began for tours.


you do have to have a hhn ticket in order to do the rip tours.

i have been doing the tours a long time.
it's the one thing newbies complain about having to buy the hhn ticket and rip tour price.

HHN Help Thanks

Thanks for the quick answers about tickets. I will see what AAA can do about adding the S&S tickets to my current daytime park tickets. Once the RIP tours are scheduled I will call about those. I know that there are going to be added cost to my current ticket but I got a bonus at work and just tagged it my Disney/universal money!

Hi
Could you please give some information on what the RIP tour is? Or what you've done in the past? I've never been to Universal or to a HHN. So, I'm trying to gather as much info as I can before making any decisons or purchases. Thanks

Sent you another PM.

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!
