Universal Orlando Resort Crowd Report – November 16 to 22, 2014

Share This!

To say last week was a slow one at Universal Orlando Resort is an understatement. Wait times at both parks stayed in the lowest levels of the year all week, exactly as we predicted. Even the weekend crowds could not muster a crowd level above ‘2’ on our scale.

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

Despite the slow week last week we expect that Thanksgiving Week will be a different story. The parks will see heavy crowds but not at Christmas-like levels.

    I was at the early opening of the Studios on Thursday and, at opening, there were less than 100 people waiting to enter. Everything was a walk on that day. While at Magic Kingdom on Saturday, the crowd level was 7 compared to 1’s and 2’s at Universal.
