    Short Lines?

    It’s way too crowded during the summer season, even on weekdays. Universal Express is a must to skip the long lines.

    Light Crowds?

    Short Lines?

    Way too crowded! The lines for everything are over an hour during the summer. You won’t be able to get everything done in one day without Universal Express.

    Light Crowds?

    Short Lines?

    Universal Express lets you skip the lines. It’s a lifesaver on crowded days! Expensive, but definitely worth it sometimes.

    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.
