Visiting SoCal in early October. Need a few pointers

Edited: July 7, 2018, 11:14 AM

We've visited SoCal before but this will be our first time visiting during Halloween season. We've already bought special tickets for Disneyland's Halloween party but I wanted to ask you if Universal's Halloween Horror Nights also require a special ticket or will the normal everyday ticket work?

Yes, you need a separate ticket for Halloween Horror Nights, just like in Orlando.

However, unlike Disneyland with its Halloween Party, Universal Studios Hollywood typically sells a combo ticket that includes a partial day admission to the park in addition to the HHN event that night. So you can get a ticket that covers both. But a regular park ticket or AP won't cover it.

Tickets are not on sale yet for the USH HHN.

Robert basically has summed it up! Let us all know if you need other recommendations!

I have heard that Knotts does a pretty good event and I believe they were the first theme park to do a Halloween event

Thanks for the info. Any guesstimates as to when will the USH HHN special tickets will go on sale?

Knotts hadn´t crossed my mind yet! We actually have never been to Knotts for one reason or another (not enough days, mostly).

I´d love to go to Knotts but I´m already going to skip 1 or 2 days at work to make this trip. Feel like 3 days would be pushing it.

I´m a teacher. That´s one of the reasons We´ve never visited on Halloween before. Unfortunately my vacations are kind of fixed but we´ve always wanted to visit on Halloween season. This is going to be the first year that I´m going to build the nerve to say "To heck with work. I only live once and I want to go to Disneyland in Halloween".
