TheMouseForLess Tips

  • Arrive early. Due to the massive popularity of the event, the earlier you arrive, the more you will have the opportunity to experience the thrills and chills!
  • Crowds for this event are large. Purchasing Universal Express may be your only option if you are looking to experience every single house in one night.
  • Make sure to purchase tickets ahead of time. Not only do you get to save a little money, but the lines for ticket purchases are extremely long, delaying your ability to enjoy the haunts.
  • Halloween Horror Nights has a pretty active social media presence. Make sure to follow along for all the latest details
  •  Looking for a break from the scares? Diagon Alley is open to Guests and doesn’t feature any event overlays.
  • Masks and costumes are not allowed.
  • Universal Orlando Resort’s app offers real-time wait times of each haunted house. In-park wait time boards are found throughout the park, if you have not downloaded the app.
  • Universal CityWalk is a great place to grab dinner and drinks before the event begins.
  • You get free admission to select CityWalk clubs with your event ticket, so head over after to keep the night going.
  • We know that these events are scary, but don’t attack scareactors.
