*Disclaimer* Performance Hospitality Management invited the team to spend one (1) night at Holiday Inn and Suites Across From Universal.
As we start our coverage of hotels off-site but nearby Universal Orlando, we made our way to Holiday Inn and Suites. The official title of this hotel is the Holiday Inn and Suites Across From Univeral Orlando. As the name indicates, this hotel resides within a reasonable walking distance. This Holiday Inn classifies as a small to mid-sized hotel with 390 rooms. The hotel has a modern look and feel. Also, the hotel has a unique feature, being connected via an indoor walkway to a TGI Friday. We’ll talk about that more soon. In addition, this Holiday Inn and Suites offers 13,000 square feet of event space for around 400 eventgoers.
âGuests must be 21 years or older to consume alcoholic beverages. Please drink responsibly.
We are into week three of Halloween Horror Nights 2022 Orlando. We can't wait to experience The Weeknd house again. This year, Universal has incorporated most of the food booths into the storylines for the houses or scare zones. The efforts of Universal's Culinary Team will fully immerse guests into the storytelling of the Universal Creative Team. Join us as we talk about the best eats at Halloween Horror Nights 31. â
Universal Orlando Resort has cooked up a "killer" menu this fall featuring more than 75 items. This year's food is inspired by the season by the horrifying lineup of terror guests will brave at Halloween Horror Nights 2022. Guests will be able to sink their teeth into some new treats and fan favorites. Guest will also be able to find some tasty offerings with a horrifying twist at select CityWalk locations. Universal Orlando's award-winning executive chefs and culinary team have delivered the most expansive selection in Halloween Horror Nights history this year.
As Guests navigate this year's event, they will be able to try highlights like "Save Your Tears," a signature cocktail inspired by "The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare," the "Maggot Covered Cheese Dog" inspired by the "Bugs: Eaten Alive" original haunted house, and Halloween Horror Nights staples like Pizza Fries, Twisted Taters and more.
Grab your flashlights and trick or treat bags cause it's time to get spooky. With Halloween Horror Nights less than seven days away, we'll discuss the “need-to-knows” for the event.
1. Buy your tickets in advance. One overlook detail that most Guest seems to miss when purchasing products online is that it can take 24 hours to process. That means if you purchase your ticket online while walking in from CityWalk, you may not have a ticket by the time you reach the gate. Here's our recommendation to entering into the park with no issues. First, Guest should purchase their admission tickets online. This will save them from paying at-gate pricing, which can be up to $25 more expensive than the online price. It also keeps you out of the long lines of other people buying tickets. Secondly, you want to make you purchase your tickets 24 hours before your visit. This ensures that your tickets have been sent to you by email, or you can call Universal if you may have selected the wrong date to fix the issue. Thirdly, make sure you have picked the correct date before purchasing your tickets. The amount of people we see waiting in line at Guest Services because they picked the wrong Thursday is unbelievable. Pro Tip- Make sure you use the Universal Orlando website, not the Hollywood site when purchasing your HHN products.
If you have been following the recipes this week, you'll notice that many of them are from one year. That would be the great year of 2019(HHN29). We're continuing this with another recipe from the HHN vault. Today we'll be trying to make Nachos. Join us if you dare.
During the cancellation of Halloween Horror Nights in 2020, the spooky mixologists at Universal created some spooky cocktails to help us all cope with such a mental monumental loss. Today we share one of their recipes from their HHNForever series. This is the Chance Cocktail, inspired by the Jack the Clowns head Maniac.
Just like me, Michelle Westfall enjoys pumpkin spice. So Westfall was kind enough to share the recipe for the Pumpkins Spiced Log Cake from Loews Pacific Resort. And, of course, I had to add it to my list of Universal Recipes when I'm trying to impress at a dinner party. So I will share the recipe with you so you can add it to your recipe book. Then, be sure to share with me what you thought of it. Happy spooky season!
You need a healthy and nutritious Halloween snack when you're running in fear. If you didn't know, let me be the first to tell you that street corn will always be there for you. Today we present the recipe for street corn from the 2020 Halloween Season.
One of the things that kept me coming back to suffer through the terror of Halloween Horror Nights during HHN 29 was Merrill's Mini Pumpkin Donuts. These sweet little dough balls were absolutely delicious, and I'm begging Universal to bring them back one more year. Until then, we have the recipe for them, so you can try to make them. Have fun and let me know what you think.
