How Crowded is Universal Orlando Resort?
How Crowded is Universal Orlando Resort?

The middle of September is typically a great week to visit the Universal Orlando Resort. Crowds are lighter with most schools in session and summer vacations concluded for most families. The opportunity to experience low crowds is dwindling however, with early Fall crowds making way for the slightly busier crowds of October and November.
