To open doors I have to stand adjacent to one and reveal or unlock it right. Lets say I reveal an unlocked door so I remove the marker, do I get to move into the door square to explore or do I have to stay in place and draw an encounter since Im not on an unexplored edge??

I was having that very same question playing the game with a 4.75-year-old. Since we aren't using the Encounter cards (yet) I wasn't worrying about it, but I'm pretty sure that there wouldn't be an Explore phase since you are not right next to the edge of the tile. Not unless that's a secret power you've got. In this case, yes, you WOULD automatically get an encounter card, which is kinda what you'd expect opening a door into an unknown section of the dungeon.

That being said, I'd need to re-read the rule book to find out if it says that doors STOP movement or if they are PART of movement.

p. 15:

Quote:
A Hero that is in a square adjacent to a Closed Door token can try to open the door. Reveal what type of door it is by turning over the token. There are 3 types of doors:
✦ Unlocked: When you reveal an Unlocked Door, discard the Closed Door token.
✦ Trapped: When you reveal a Trapped Door, each Hero adjacent to the Closed Door token immediately takes 1 damage. Then discard the Closed Door token.
✦ Locked: When you reveal a Locked Door, place the face-up token back on the Dungeon Tile. While a Hero is adjacent to a Locked Door, he or she can attempt to unlock the door instead of attacking. If you roll a 10 or higher, you unlock the door. Discard the Closed Door token.
From reading this, trying to open a door does not require an action, but unlocking a locked door does. So as long as the door is not locked you can open it during the middle of your movement as well as before or after.
