    I see the dates for HHN have been listed here on the DIS, are these final, as the official site just has the date range rather than the individual nights listed?

    Does that now mean ticket options won't be far behind?

    As a UK res I think there's only the APH rate I'd be eligible for, so is this discount available on things such as stay & scream and frequent fear? (haven't yet decided whether to do one night with Express or two without)

    If you have an AP the discount for the Frequent Fear Pass makes it well worth the cost of the AP...that's why I keep mine current. You would not need anything other than the FFP (if you have an AP) and the AP would allow for S & S since you are able to enter the park prior to closing.

    Still weighing up whether to get an AP as we'd only be in the parks 3 days at most this year (hoping to do LA next year), but it'd probably be worth it if I could get a discount on our HRH stay. Not sure how likely this is with our dates of 28/29 September though? Anyone know what sort of discount might be likely, if any?
    And what discount does it give you in the restaurants? Sorry, slightly off topic, but it's all for the good of my HHN plans :)

    I have no idea what discounts will be available or what they will be. I can tell you the AP discount is better than the FL resident discount. Premiere APs is 15% discount on food and Preferred is 10% at most places.

    Cool, thanks for this. Any idea when the hotel discount would be out by if there was to be one?

    Most of the time they have weekend packages called Gory Getaways. I don't know if there are discounts for room only during that time or not. Hotel discounts should become available...if there are any...during late summer.

    Thank you, it helps to know when to keep an eye out for things.
    One last question, what's included in a gory getaway? Hotel, normal park admission and HHN admission? For how many nights?
    Ok that was sort of 3 questions, no more now I promise ;)

    This is a link to a webpage from 2010 that mentions the hotel packages. Ignore the prices since this was several years ago but it will give you an idea of what's included:

    Hotel discounts are the same during HHN as any other time of year (AP, AAA, Stay More/Save More). However, as HHN is very popular, those rates tend to sell out quickly.

    The AAA rate is usually available when those dates are released, but can only be obtained by calling the hotel reservation number or using AAA's website. The AAA rate usually doesn't display on the Loew's website.

    APH rates might be available when dates are released for booking, but usually only become available 3 to 6 months in advance. If available, it will display on the Loew's website, but you have to request with the APH code.

    Stay More/Save More (SMSM) is the wildcard. For long stays (at least 5 nights), it will beat both the APH and AAA rate. For shorter days, the other rates are better. If the rate is available, it will typically display on the Loew's website without any special code.

    My advice is if you're sure that you're staying on property and you know your dates, book as early as you can, even if the rate you want isn't available. Then keep checking rates and if the rate becomes available, contact the reservation center and get the cheaper rate applied to your reservation.

    Oh no...not again! I don't think I could take the abuse since I'm so much older than last time. I might even need a wheelchair this year. :eek:

    Thanks for the hotel advice. I booked our 2 night stay as soon as I could, so just need to keep looking now to see if any discounts come out I could use, probably the APH if anything, then see if the discount on offer makes it worth getting the AP!
