Halloween Horror Nights are coming! Universal doesn’t begin spooky Season quite as early as Disney does but you’ll still have plenty of opportunity to celebrate all things horror with Universal’s take on Halloween.  You’ll have the chance to be terrified beginning September 1, 2023. Universal has been slow with news about the event. So far only one house has been officially announced. Unlike Disney’s “not so scary” celebration, Halloween Horror Night “are so scary” and not recommended for children.

New this year, Frequent Fear Pass purchases require guests to select the date their pass will start. This new policy  has caused more questions than answers “what happens if you can’t attend the first night you selected? Do you lose that night?” So far Universal has not provided any answers to these questions but stay tuned right here at Disney Dining. As soon as Universal provides clarification we will be sure to let you know! Click here to purchase your Halloween Horror Nights Frequent Fear Pass.
