Important question - Were the crepes being freshly made, or just reheated?

This is the first time I cant wait to try a restaurant at the resort. I saw the pork belly sliders topped with chocolate bacon . . . almost licked the screen!

I want to take a relative to USO & IOA in Orlando who has a bad back. According to their website only the Harry Potter train is listed as safe to ride. Even the new King Kong attraction has a symbol it's bad for back and says sudden movements. I thought I read it's mild and a jeep ride? Oh, and minions has a non motion seat to watch the film. It don't appear they have much without sudden movements. I think ET is mild enough. :(

Yeah, how long as Universal been selling tickets with displays at Publix stores anyway? It wasn't until a month or so ago that I started noticing but it must be working well enough...

I am guessing at least 8-10 years now. Quite a long time.

Being a Floridian, this is the only way I can tell Halloween is almost upon us. :lol:

Just moved down to the area for college and have a few questions about HHN.

-What are the ride lines usually like during HHN Friday nights? (October 21 is when I plan to go)
-How much of Diagon Alley will be open?
-How early should I plan to arrive before a Bill & Ted show? What are the odds of getting a selfie with them after the show?
-How willing are the scare zone characters to take selfies?
-I've heard about the conga line nature of the mazes, but how are the scare zone guest crowds?
-Cheap food/booze recommendations?
-How are the IOA crowds at this time?
-I plan to do few mazes (Chance), mainly sticking to the scare zones, Bill & Ted, and rides
