Welcome back! I’d like to take a second to say that I hope all that were directly affected by Hurricane Irma are safe. If your trip was interrupted or rescheduled due to the storm, or you are just needing an escape, let’s see how you can unwind at Universal Orlando this week!
Weekly Crowd Level
Please note these are the projected crowd levels at the time of publication. Due to many guests needing to change vacation plans at the last minute due to Irma, crowd levels may fluctuate. Detailed crowd level information can be found here.
