Halloween Horror Nights debuted its scareactor dining experience back in 2015, and it was so popular that Universal Studios Florida is bringing it back this year. Better yet, the schedule has expanded to 20 dates.

A frightening feast.

The scareactor dining experience is an extra-cost experience that requires you to have a Halloween Horror Nights 26 ticket and to pay $49.99 for the added dinner experience. In addition to a sumptuous meal, you have the pleasure of dodging some scary characters while you dine. If you're used to pleasant visits from the likes of Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World, be prepared.

At this type of meal, you're more likely to face a knife blade than to get a hug.

No details released yet.

Universal Orlando Resort hasn't released any details about this year's scareactor dining experience yet, other than the date and price, but it's likely to be very similar to last year's offerings. In 2015, you had access to a buffet brimming with a wide variety of choices for salad, main course, and dessert. Once you piled up your plate and took a seat, various creatures and characters descended on the tables.

Bring a camera.

There's no word yet on what characters you might see while you're dining. Last year, event icon Jack the Clown wasn't there, but there was more than enough variety in scareactors to make up for his absence.

Bring your camera or have your phone ready because the photo ops come fast and furious.

Choose your scareactor dining date early.

The dates to dine with the scareactors before your night of Halloween Horror Nights terror are September 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 29, and 30 and October 1, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, and 29.

Book the dinner is advance on the official website.

Head into the scarezones.

Once you finish your dinner, the event should be open so you can head right off to the scarezones or haunted houses. In the meantime, rather than waiting out in the massive lines at the front of the park or the holding pens inside Universal Studios Florida, you wait inside a comfortable restaurant enjoying one more slide of cake while trying to grab just a few more photos of the lurking ghouls.
