    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Disney's Hollywood Studios)

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions! We had a blast and he totally shed a couple tears. The lightsaber experience was really cool (though when he bought a lighter colored crystal we discovered the blade had a rogue reddish orange band in it and had to go back today on our way out of town to...

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Disney's Hollywood Studios)

    Going to Galaxy's Edge for the first time Saturday--very excited. I booked Savi's for my husband for our anniversary and he is geeking out. We haven't been to Disney lately with Hagrid's and HHN happening at Universal, so should be a nice change of pace! Any particular drinks ya'll recommend at...

    HHN Tips & Tricks

    Seconding the umbrella. We had it for rain but it came in handy to keep the sun at bay a little. I felt like I was going to pass out until I sat under it for a little. That area is in direct impact from the sun--ruthless.

    Halloween Horror Nights 29 General Discussion

    I didn't have any issues in the houses (that I noticed) but I did see more than one scareactor speaking to friends in the streets. In particular, one scareactor with a mask had the mask pulled up and was just chatting as if they had run into a friend at the grocery store. I had never seen...

    HHN 29: Ticket, RIP Tours, and Pass Information

    My husband and I always have a pretty tight budget for HHN (I'm a PhD student sooo) so I thought I'd share some of my tips :) I know a "small" budget can be subjective, but here are some of my go-to budget-conscious ideas. For souvenirs I like to look ahead of time. Since you're on the forum...

    HHN Tips & Tricks

    I did not purchase, but I saw a kiosk selling them right in front of the Fallon ride, before the Zombieland scarezone began. There are probably other areas as well, though.

    HHN Tips & Tricks

    Unsure if they'll honor it, but when I was there Saturday evening for S&S my husband and I grabbed an appetizer and drinks around 4:15 and it looked to be the full menu. Others around us were ordering normal Finn's fare.

    HHN Tips & Tricks

    1. Finnegan's will be the place you'll want to be. That lets out into Ghostbusters and ST, with Yeti opening with (or later? someone else may be able to confirm) event open but still being in the general area. KK is the furthest from Finn's of the houses you listed, but not far by any means. You...

    HHN 29: Academy of Villains - Altered States

    Absolutely loved the show this year. Perfect music choices and the cast was on fire both times I saw the show.

    Halloween Horror Nights 29 (UO): Reviews & Photos

    Wanted to pop on and do an updated review after a second full night. We were there Fri-Sun, though Friday we had only intended to grab our tickets and eat dinner. Instead we ended up doing one house, AoV, and getting a drink and chilling in zones. We didn't do all houses more than once since our...

    Halloween Horror Nights 29 General Discussion

    Just got back home from our HHN trip. We had a great time (though we are exhausted as is expected, and may be coming down with something--eep!). Thanks to all for all the conversation over the last few months--it made for great build up and hype! Houses were pretty solid overall and we loved...

    Halloween Horror Nights 29 (UO): Reviews & Photos

    Will be going again tomorrow night, so this is subject to change (though tomorrow we're going with a friend who has certain houses she doesn't want to do for sure). We got to Stay & Scream at 4 and had drinks and a snack in Finnegan's before getting in line for Ghostbusters. All said and done...

    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Just got off at 10:15! Got to the park at 8:30, opened at 9 despite a quoted delay. I finally had my first run without a breakdown/stall in the forest! Everything ran smoothly! Sign said at capacity once we got off.

    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Went to the middle check in and was told to leave. They ended up letting people in that way anyways. Not too jazzed on that but we're in and waiting in Sinbad. Was told it would have a delayed opening but I can hear bikes cycling frequently. Moving steadily.

    Thank you! That makes sense, and is what I assumed. I'm definitely more of a cocktail person, but the specialty drinks are too sickeningly sweet usually!

    HHN Tips & Tricks

    Hoping this hasn't been posted about--I read here just about every day, so if I missed it I apologize! I've been going for about seven years now but I just can't quite remember something about the blinky cups. I know if you buy a blinky cup it comes with cheaper refills on the specialty drinks...
