We're committed to bringing you the best Universal Orlando planning tools to help you save time and money on your trip.
Each year we receive more than 1,000 e-mails and letters inquiring about crowd conditions on specific dates throughout the year. Readers also want to know which park is best to visit on each day of their stay. To make things easier for you (and us!), we've created a calendar covering the next three months. For each date, we offer a crowd-level index based on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being least crowded and 10 being most crowded. Our calendar takes into account all holidays, special events, and more.
Helping you avoid bottlenecks is what this website is about. Bottlenecks are caused by crowd concentrations and/or faulty crowd management. Avoiding bottlenecks involves being able to predict where, when, and why they occur. Concentrations of hungry people create bottlenecks at restaurants during lunch and dinner; concentrations of people moving toward the exit near closing time create bottlenecks in gift shops en route; concentrations of visitors at new and popular rides, and at rides slow to load and unload, create bottlenecks and long lines.
Lines is our mobile application that displays current and future wait times for every attraction in the Universal Orlando Resort. We currently support the iPhone and Android mobile platforms, with most content also available via any mobile web browser.
