Two nights w/o would be OK. I usually buy the Frequent Fear Pass and depending on the budget may get Express added. But if not...no biggie. Multiple visits will insure seeing everything instead of a single night with Express.

Hey guys quick couple of questions; My DBF and I are going to Disney September 20-25 and were planning on going to HHN the night of the 20th. That being the opening night, how crazy busy is it? Think we will be able to do all houses? I've been several times, but usually later in October. Also, any prices on Florida resident one day passes? Thanks!

No prices will be released until summer. I go every opening night and it's pretty busy. Last year it was a monsoon for most of the evening. Lots of people left but I managed to do all but two houses. You will need to spend the entire evening if you want to do all the houses w/o Express. I think it might be a little better this year with lines because the construction of Transformers is finished and I can bet it will be open during HHN. That will help with the lines.

I noticed that the HHN express pass also includes some of the rides. If you're an onsite resort guest do you need this particular pass for the rides during HHN? I know you need the HHN express pass for the houses, but will your regular resort express pass work for the rides during the event?

I figured that was probably the case. But it never hurts to ask.

Your hotel EP does not work but the EP for HHN is good for once through each house AND all open attractions.

Any word on Walking Dead returning this year? I have read rumors, and I always love the idea of new things each year at HHN...but I love TWD and was unable to go last year.

There won't be any official word for a while yet.

A question about tickets. I'm planning to attend on Oct 31 and will definitely want an express pass. Can I purchase the express passes when they become available and then purchase a stay and scream ticket at the park on the night of the event? I plan on purchasing 14 day 3 park tickets from Undercover Tourist since we will be in the parks from 5 to 7 days.

Yes...you can purchase EPs for HHN anytime they are available.

you can purchase the stay and scream ticket the day you are in the park.
show your multipass day ticket at guest services and buy the discounted hhn ticket.

you can do this on any day you are in the park.
it does not have to be done on the actual day of the hhn event.

but, if you wait until that oct 31st to buy the hhn tix, don't want until 4:00 to do so.
that line for ticket buying will be long the hour prior to park closing.

It might also be worth mentioning that you may not even really need the Express if you are doing rides.

For the MOST part, Everybody is in the park to do the houses, so the ride lines are very short compared to what they tend to be during the day.


Which also goes to say.... Why waste your HHN riding the rides when you can do them during a regular park day? The only ride (I personally) felt was a "must do" during HHN was Jaws. just because it was an entirely different experience after dark, and it was so rare that the park was still open that late during my normal trips. Now, I can't think of anything that would be a must-do after dark and therefor worth the wasted house time. [Most US attractions are indoors, so day/night, no real different in the experience. Rip/Ride/Rocket's Lights are cool at night.... but I feel they are better enjoyed from the ground than on the coaster]

It was a curiosity question more than anything. We've never been before so I wasn't quite sure how things worked. We're going to do 2 HHN nights back to back. One with express and one without. Nice to know that we probably won't need express for the rides. We'll save our riding for the night we don't have the express pass in case we choose to ride.
