Halloween Horror Nights is returning for its 32nd year at Universal Orlando Resort on September 1st 2023. The full lineup of haunted houses, scare zones and entertainment has now been announced, with popular franchises such as The Last of Us, Stranger Things and The Exorcist heading up the list. 

If you’re planning your visit to the World’s Premier Halloween Event* you’ll want to make sure you schedule some time for a break between all those scares to stop for a bite to eat - you’ll definitely need to keep your energy up if you’re going to be facing demons, yetis and killer dolls. But if you don’t want to waste any time going through menus on the night, we’ve got you covered with some of this year’s standout food and beverage options. 


Cordyceps Corndog 

Where? New York 

Don't fear becoming a Clicker; cordyceps fungi topping this giant Korean corndog are delicious when paired with crispy potato sticks, daikon sprouts, mozzarella and a truffle cream sauce.

Plus there will be plenty of Universal Studios Florida dining locations open with their regular menus, including The Leaky Cauldron, Krusty Burger, and the newly-opened Minion Cafe! There are also some speciality items to try in Universal CityWalk, at Voodoo Doughnut, The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen, and the Revenge of the Dead Coconut Club.
