Which ticket is best for Halloween Horror Nights? My Complete Guide to HHN Tickets and Passes

Halloween Horror Nights is marketed as the “nation’s premier Halloween event.” I’m not one to always share out a company’s media tag on a whim, but in this case, I believe that is 100% true.

HHN at Universal Orlando is the best theme park event I’ve ever been to. They have the best haunted houses I’ve ever seen (and I’m counting scare zones in that). And you get many of the regular theme park attractions for your price of admission. You can’t beat this deal.

Tickets for HHN may seem straightforward to some. They have single night tickets that you can buy online or in-person at the gate. But if you do either of those options, you’re probably losing money and/or you’re not getting much done.

Like with any theme park vacation these days, you have to do a bit of research to make sure you are are being the most effective and planning ahead to make best use of your time. Fortunately, this guide will break down all the prices and help you start to do the math for your own trip.

Surf’s Up: Typhoon Lagoon H2O Glow Nights Review

Perhaps one of the best hidden gems, that isn’t really hidden at all, are Disney’s water parks. Before this summer, I had never been to either and didn’t see much of a reason to go.

I thought: I can stay on site and use the pool at my hotel. Or ride a water ride in the parks. Why do I need to pay more money to go to a water park?

Typhoon Lagoon far exceeded my expectations and experiencing at night during a special event made it even better. How did it do that? Keep reading.

How to Make Disney Solo Trips Less Scary and Why You Should Do One

Disney vacations are perfect for making family memories, right? So who would think that a Disney trip would also be perfect for solo travelers?

Actually, solo trips to Disney are easier and more enjoyable than ones at most other places.

I do a lot of solo travel (as a single, young adult) to both Disney and other destinations, and often get a lot of questions about how I do it from people saying they are scared or nervous to do a solo trip.

There’s no reason to be nervous – it actually is really nice!

A Totally Awesome Stay: Disney’s Pop Century Resort Review

Before April of this year, I was a strong advocate of staying off site to save money. Staying off property wasn’t a priority or focus for me, because I spend most of my time in the parks and the price point was just too much higher compared to some place off site.

That all changed after I stayed at Pop Century at the end of April.

What was different, how I justify the extra cost, and what I loved about Pop Century is all included in this post, so let’s get started!

Only One Day at Disney World? Here’s How to Create Your Game Plan

The most common question I see posted on social media and that gets asked to me in person is “I’m going to Disney for just one day, how do I make the most of it? What should I do?” The reason for only having one day is not so relevant, but it’s usually do having other trip plans, only being in the area for a short time, or cost.

The first thing to do is accept that you will not see everything, even in one park, during your one-day visit to the happiest and most magical place on Earth. You can come close, and you can see the most important/highlight attractions in a park and even in multiple parks.

Here’s how I would approach a game plan and what I advise others when they ask this common question.
