    Light Crowds?

    Short Lines?

    Universal isn’t as crowded as Disneyland, but the lines can be worse because they move so slow. Buy the Universal Express ticket if you are going on a weekend during a peak season.

  6. 4.5
    Light Crowds?

    Weekdays in late April are amazing. Lines are short and it’s not crowded at all.

  8. 2.5
    Light Crowds?

    Short Lines?

    Avoid going on Saturdays, it’s the most crowded day of the week. You will need FOL if you’re going on a “Yup, It’s Packed” or “Forget About It” day.

  9. 4.0
    Light Crowds?

    Short Lines?

    Sundays are way better than Saturdays. Not too crowded and the lines aren’t too bad.

  10. 2.0
    Light Crowds?

    Short Lines?

    The park isn’t too crowded, but the lines can be ridiculous sometimes. Front of Line is a must during peak season, otherwise you are going to be spending hours waiting.
