I haven't been to BGT in maybe 15 years. I really need to go there. I went to seaworld two years ago and orlando last year and the year before that, but had to skip my trip this summer. :( I've had a great time at both of those places though. I hear really good things about the new Manta ride at seaworld. Also the Clyde and Seamore show is great, make sure you get there early. There's a mime or something that makes fun of people. I heard the trainers aren't allowed to get in the water at the moment with the whales and such, so I'm not sure how that changes the big shows. For Universal, make sure you hit up both parks. Each one could take about a day or a day and a half if you take your time. Make sure you try the butterbeer in the wizarding world.

How long are you going for?

I have been to IoA in Universal and was not overly impressed with it. Now, that was prior to the opening of Harry Potter World. I have never been a huge Universal fan.

Disney is expensive and they get you with the one or two day admissions. When you buy 6+ with a no expiration option then it becomes worth it. But outside of going to a park they have some great restaurants in downtown with an awesome atmosphere. That is something to check out and kill time. You can still boat hop and ride around to the different resorts just to check it out. ....I spend way too much time there

I only did IoA but the water rides there were amazing! Spiderman was a rough as crap version of Darkastle. Dueling Dragons was FUN! We did that over and over again. Hulk jerked me around a lot but then again my head was already pounding.

Hey guys, I had a couple questions I need answered if possible. From sept 22-26 my family is planning to go to Universal and IOA but also plan on heading to HHN, we are having a bit of trouble figuring out like tickets and how we should pay, are we supposed to do 2 day 2 park tickets and a single HHN ticket for the night we plan to go, because we plan to be at the park from morning till close so were trying to find the cheapest options available.

Please let me know what you guys could recommend for me to purchase.

from what i remember, the 2 day 2 park tickets worked fine for me when i went. Since you'll be in the park all day, I'd also reccomend getting stay and scream tickets to go along with that, just so you can get through one or two of the houses before it gets crowded. depending on what day you go (with wednesdays being the slowest and saturdays the busiest), you might need to get an express pass just so you can get through all of the houses in one night.

Yea my only issue is how do I add the stay and scream and whats the price, I cant seem to find it anywhere including the extras when I go to buy the tickets and I'm a bit confused as to where it may be

They changed the name this year - its called 'Scream Early'. Its $35, and is like towards the middle of the page when you are buying your tickets.

So stay and scream basically allows you to get into one or two houses before the event actually opens. at like 5-ish you'll go to one of three specific stay and scream areas (if they do it the same as last year, those areas would be new york, springfield, and part of hollywood). You'd wait there until like 5:45-ish, and then you'd be released into the nearest houses. So, essentially, instead of waiting at the front gate for the event to start, you'd wait next to a house. If you don't want to pay for express and get the most out of your night, this is probably your best option.

So that means that I paid for a one day ticket and the extra 35 dollars allows me to stay for HHN or I still need to purchase a HHN standalone ticket?

You still need a separate HHN ticket. You're visiting in Sept so crowds should be lighter. Many houses will be walk through in the last couple hours when the park is open super late and the crowds aren't insane. I would advise going on a day other than Friday or Saturday and skipping on express, unless you really don't want to wait in lines. 35 a head for a quick way through a couple houses isn't a great deal either. Make sure to be in the park at opening and you should be ok, just don't forget that it might take 30 mins+ to get into the park from the time the gps says you'll be there due to the massive walk from parking to the front gates, and any lines you have to get through. USO are pretty good at having lanes open for getting through all the checkpoints, but better be safe than sorry as that first hour will be a good thime to knock out 3 houses or so before it all gets bogged.
