“If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” -Dale Carnegie

Hello readers! I hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did. I had the one to go to Universal Studios Hollywood for their Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) with Victoria. That is what this post will be about.

The best part of it? Returning “home” after 9+ months. We had early entry, meaning we were able to go in two hours early, but they let us in an extra half hour early. So, we HHN starts at 7pn, our tickets said we could enter at 5pm, but the gates opened at 4:30pm. With that extra time, we went straight to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I miss it every day and I wanted to see what was new and say hi to old friends.

We were able to get through 6 of the 8 mazes and they were great. Unfortunately, the Stranger Things maze had us in line for well over an hour so it delayed us a bit. We could have fit in one more maze but my feet were killing me so we went back to our hotel.

If you are planning on going to HHN this year, or any year, I recommend getting the early entry because it is so worth it. You can start on a couple mazes earlier, which we should have done, but you could also get in a bit of other park stuff as well.

Thank you all of posting and I know this is super short and late but I’m feeling a bit under the weather. An update on washing my face, I haven’t gotten the face wash I want yet but I am using a clay mask every Sunday evening and so far my skin loves it. Also, check out the photos below!

Since I wasn’t able to write anything on Tuesday, I had to push my Mexico trip post to yesterday and the post I was going to write yesterday was cast away. That post is important, though.

Since it is already April, I needed to write about Universal Studios in March. Sadly, I was not able to go Universal very much throughout the month but I made sure to go a couple times and keep up with all of the events going on.

Overall, the crowds were still light though one of the times that we went to CityWalk, there were a lot of students from local high schools everywhere. The weather was nice, also, so that’s always a plus. They were also still working on the globe so visitors were unable to get good pictures with the iconic piece.

The only event, either through Universal or from a third-party, is the following:

Sadly I was unable to keep up with the Universal Studios calendar but I hope to do better this month.

If you didn’t know, there is a section in the park devoted to The Simpsons. This is includes a ride, areas for meet and greets with The Simpsons characters, a couple of restaurants, and a fair games. The Krusty Burger had televisions that played parts of episodes and kept you entertained while waiting in line. Thankfully the line wasn’t long, though. The menu was easy to read and had a great selection. We both chose the Legendary Krusty Burger, shown in the picture. This meal included the burger (with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and pickle), fries, cole slaw (that I didn’t particularly enjoy) and a drink. The only issue I have seen is with the cups. There is a sensor on the bottom and the machine knows if you’ve already had soda and while we were there it didn’t work for one of the customers at all. She had paid before us and they had to give her a new cup.

The rides that we went on were Jurassic Park and The Mummy. It is said that the Jurassic Park ride is a whole foot taller (for the big drop) in Orlando but I can’t tell the difference. Both were fun and we really enjoyed our time. The lines weren’t terrible for either ride, though we did ride The Mummy shortly before the park was due to close.

I hope that you found this helpful. Please feel free to comment with your March experiences for Universal Hollywood. What did you do? Where did you eat? If you’d like to see more content, please subscribe. As always, thank you for reading!
