    I’ll be there week of October 15th and look EXACTLY like Ryan Reynolds. Can’t miss me.

    So after rewatching IT last night, I’m definitely excited for the house assuming it happens. Wondering how much of the actual Pennywise clown will be in the house since his other forms(Flute Lady, Leper, Zombie Kids, Headless Boy, Beverly’s Dad if they use him) seem more fitting in the environments they’ll most likely use. Also, incredibly excited to see the sewers and bloody bathroom

    Question for the pros: historically, has the first night of HHN been crazy? My vacation plans got all out of whack this year (a wedding forced the dates for Florida to be shifted), so the BF and I will only get Sept. 14 to enjoy.

    We’ve did S&S at Finnegan’s last year (our first and only year) and we’re pretty successful at moving through the houses, but that was also mid October.

    Historically, as in over 27 years, no.

    Past 5 years or so, ridiculously busy. Doesn't help that there are a ton of RIP tours--bloggers, corporate bigwigs--who randomly hold the lines up for 4 minutes. More than any other night I'd wager.

    Opening night can be pretty busy, but not as bad as other nights like hell week. If it were my only night I would get Express or RIP. That being said opening night is my second favorite night of the whole event. There’s a little more excitement and everything is new.

    As expected, haha. Thank you Captain Obvious! :)

    I guess that's not too surprising, but probably not the end of the world with EP/RIP.

    Never really considered RIP from price alone, but Express pass for sure would be in the cards. RIP would definitely be a solid option if we want to get through everything, though. When we went last time we bowed out about 10PM (I may or may not have forced everyone out of bed at 6AM to get into the parks - one thing I will never do again!!!), and we got through five of the houses and both shows. I'd think if we stayed the whole night, we could have gotten through everything, but you never can tell.

    Speaking of tours, I'd almost rather do Unmasking if it was available, just to be able to appreciate the sets. I'm pretty sure they won't do that opening day though.

    I've heard closing weekend is normally pretty empty, but man, it was CRAZY this past year. Probably because B&T.

    I expect record crowds this year.

    The B&T fanbase definitely showed up in numbers last year. The show wasn't for me, but even I could tell from the montage how much that show meant to some HHN goers.

    It wasn’t B&T, it was the UCF students. They did a very good job last year of filling the park on the days that would have traditionally been slow with different groups.

    Closing night last year was PACKED. I won't be surprised if they do the UCF deal the same time this year.

    It was stupid packed. I had friends who went that night thinking it would be dead and boy were they shocked.

    That probably will not be the case. They weren’t anticipating that turn out. They had UCF Night plus it was a TM night.

    Opening nights are usually busy, but my opinion is that last year's opening was dead because it was only 3 or 4 days after Hurricane Irma. I know I enjoyed having power in the hotel since my house didn't.

    thinking of going this year. it's been several years. Is Gringotts Bank open during HHN? Is Diagon a "scare zone", or do they leave it alone?

    The official Hollywood account just poSTed that they'll be announcing the first HHN maze tomorrow morning at 8:00am PST. Chances are it will be shared with Orlando as well.

    Kind of STRANGE that they're pre-announcing this year.

    It was open last year until about 11 pm. Assuming you mean the Escape from Gringotts ride.
