With over 20 million visitors visiting the wonderful Universal Studios Orlando each year there is no surprise that crowding becomes an issue. While many people will go in the school holidays, that only allocates a small percentage of the year.
Not to mention that everyone in the world has different holidays, time off and different school calendars. With that in mind here is the 2019 Universal Studios Orlando Crowd Calendar.
Universal Studios Orlando Crowd Calendar Key
Very Busy – Expect wait times to be 60-90 + minutes.
Busy – Expect wait times to be 40 – 60 + minutes.
Moderate – Expect wait times to be 20 – 30 + minutes.
Quiet – Expect wait times to be 5 – 15 + minutes.
The Busy and Very Busy times are due to high crowd numbers, this is mostly caused by school holidays in the UK, USA and the rest of the world at the same time. Spring break is usually in March which bumps up the numbers then, then there are school holidays for both the USA and the UK from June to August.
Other times of the year such as December can be busier due to people spending Christmas at the parks, also events such as Halloween Horror Nights and Independence Day on 4th of July. These are all events the USA have that can considerably bump up crowd numbers over those dates and times.
You can also get an Express Pass to cut down wait times in conjunction with your standard ticket. The express pass is a great way to hit the big rides and cut down on wait times. Meaning you can get to see more, do more and go on more rides. It is great to use in Busy and Very Busy time periods as this will help free up time in your day.
Universal Studios is a great family-friendly attraction, along with plenty to see there is plenty to do for all ages. Universal also has a great nightlife scene that features bars, restaurants and more things to do over at CityWalk. There is also an amazing range of on-site hotels to explore, stay at and dine at while you are at Universal Studios.
That is everything for our Universal Studios Orlando crowd calendar. I hope this has been useful for planning your next trip to Orlando. If you have any tips or tricks to make for a better holiday let us know in the comments.
