Hello again! It looks like a great week to hit the parks, so let’s see what is in store!

Weekly Crowd Level

Oh so slowly, the kids are going back to school and summer is fading, as will the crowds by the end of the week.

Weekly Weather Report

What won’t be fading this week are the temperatures. Like a good scout, always be prepared and check out the most up-to-date forecast here.

Weekly Park Hours and Admission

CityWalk is open until 2am daily, and self parking is free after 6pm.

Single-day park tickets will be at Value pricing all week. One-day base tickets to Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure will run you $110 per adult, and $105 per child (plus tax). 2-Park 1-Day tickets are $165 per adult and $160 per child (plus tax). A one-day ticket for Volcano Bay will be $67 per adult and $62 per child (plus tax).

Don’t forget: park-to-park tickets are required if you’d like to go for a ride on the Hogwarts Express. It’s definitely not a ride to miss. ProTip: Make sure you ride in both directions, as the experience is different each way!

Notable Highlights

There are no planned closures or refurbishments scheduled for this week. Dragon Challenge days are numbered – get your last ride in before it is gone forever on September 5.

Summer is fading fast, and Labor Day weekend is almost upon us – be sure to check back next week if you’re planning a visit over the holiday weekend!

See you next week!
