Filed under: Crowd Blog, Universal Orlando Resort

The end of June is historically a busy time at Universal Orlando with the end of school bringing an influx of teens and ‘tweens to experience Universals thrills but this year’s crowds fell well short of what have seen in year’s past. The Universal Crowd Calendar predictions for the second half of the week were close to what we observed but not so much on Monday through Wednesday.

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

June is coming to a close next week so that usually means summer crowds will begin. However, it appears that Universal crowds during the early part of the week may be better than usual, a trend to watch out for in the coming months.
