9. Hotel Concierge
If you’re in town for a business conference and want to enjoy some free time, then connecting with your hotel or resort concierge can get you a last minute ticket to one of the Universal Orlando theme parks and HHN for a possible discount.
So always check with your resort staff to see if they have any special ticket deals going on during your trip.
10. Watch a Presentation
Now I know this is a controversial way to get tickets to Halloween Horror Nights.
If you stay at a vacation villa, they may offer a presentation for you to view for possibly purchasing a timeshare with their organization.
After you complete the presentation, you’re sometimes offered free tickets to Universal Studios Florida or their special events like Halloween Horror Nights.
Be aware that these sales pitches are intense, but if you’re able to stay strong, you’ll be able to claim your free ticket.
What to Know Before You Go to Halloween Horror Nights

When do Halloween Horror Nights Tickets Go on Sale?
Your Universal Orlando HHN tickets are on sale now! You can get them from any of the ticket sellers that I mentioned in this guide.
Are Halloween Horror Nights tickets refundable?
HHN is a great event that happens rain or shine, unfortunately no refunds or rain checks are given.
Can you buy Halloween Horror Nights Tickets at the gate?
You can buy HHN tickets at the gate; however, you may be at risk for coming in on a sold out night.
You’ll also risk not being able to take advantage of the discounts that are offered when you purchase your tickets to Halloween Horror Nights online.
Is Halloween Horror Nights a separate ticket?
Halloween Horror Nights is a separately ticketed event that takes place on select nights starting at 6:30 p.m.
So you don’t need a park ticket to Universal Studios for Halloween Horror Nights unless you want to do Stay and Scream.
This year’s event features several terrifying attractions, including an array of haunted houses and scare zones!
