Today, we’re covering an update to the Universal Orlando Crowd Calendar.
Crowd Patterns at Universal
As a general rule, wait times at Universal Orlando parks are low during the week and very high on weekends, especially at Universal Studios Park. Guests seem to be taking advantage of Universal’s generous promotion that allows those who purchased a 1-day ticket to visit multiple times until December 24.
Update for October and Beyond
There are no real surprises in this update. Crowd levels are going up on weekends and down during the week. However it is important to remember that the Crowd Calendar is based on posted times. If you are using the Lines app you will see a prediction for both the posted time and the actual time you should expect to wait in line. Often the latter is significantly less than the former.
You should avoid weekends at Universal this fall (if you can) but if you can’t, try Islands of Adventure on Sundays – that is by far the lowest crowd you are likely to experience.
This predictions in this update assume that health recommendations for theme parks will remain in place for the foreseeable future and that guests will continue to visit in similar fashion as they have since Labor Day. We will continue to review the daily crowd numbers at Universal Orlando and we expect to publish another update in early November.
