Universal Crowd Calendar Report – June 7 to 13, 2015

Share This!

History shows us that wait times at Universal Orlando Resort in mid-June should fall somewhere in the highest portion of the Universal Crowd Calendar’s ‘1’ to ’10’ scale. Last week, crowds at Universal fell short (in some cases, well short) of what the Universal Crowd Calendar expected. We expected lots of ‘8’s and ‘9’s but saw mostly ‘6’s and ‘7’s.

Let’s look at how the crowd levels stacked up each day last week on the TouringPlans.com Universal Crowd Calendar Report:

June is typically a shoulder season that bridges the gap between May and the busy summer season. Although wait times were down last week, it is likely that waits will increase as we approach to official start of summer break.
