Universal crowds?

Universal Orlando: What are the crowds like at Universal Orlando during this time? I am going this weekend for four days, thinking the crowds wouldn't be THAT bad. However, I recently heard the crowds are indeed pretty bad this time of year. Any help/advice?

To be honest, at weekends the crowds are horrible. Go to Universal parks at morning weekdays. Try to be used to the crowds though.

We're entering the "Spring Break" season when all the Orlando parks will be packed. Universal is especially popular with the teen and college crowds during this time of year. Best to wait for early May, or late August/September. Or plan on staying on property where your room "key" can be used as an unlimited Universal Express pass (which allows quicker entry to 90% of the attractions).

Yeah, its just Spring Break season so it will be crowded everywhere. Easter is worse because people in the South get a three day weekend around Easter.

Best advice: go early in the day!
