The Crowd Calendar Is Based On Wait Times
Our Unofficial Guide researchers have collected wait times in Universal Orlando Resort for over three years. With this dataset, Fred Hazelton, our professional statistician, updates this calendar every week.
How We Rank Crowds
There are three Crowd Levels listed above, each is based on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being the least crowded conditions and 10 being most crowded. The Resort Crowd Level scale represents the combined wait times at all the standby lines in both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure. The per-park crowd levels are predictions of the relative crowd level for attractions in those parks, respectively.
The Crowd Levels are on a relative scale--an '8' is more crowded than '7' which is more crowded than '6'. The crowd level tells you how each day compares to all other days we have on record. Read more on Crowd Levels.
