Harry Potter later in the day?

Universal Orlando: My parents were told to visit Harry later to get in to the land quicker...

I tried to post this a few hours ago, and it never showed up, so if it double posts, sorry.

My parents are in Universal Studios today, going to IOA tomorrow. An employee at the Studios mentioned to them today to head to WWoHP later in the day, at around 6 PM, and the line will be much shorter. Anyone who has been there know anything about this? Since they are there, I am their researcher, so any information would be helpful!
Thanks!

Universal posted the same thing on their Facebook page. Some of the responses to it seem to indicate that later may be the best option.

We went Monday, and the lines were horrendous up until about 5/6 PM, so yes. We were able to walk right into Potterland around 6 for another ride on FJ. The crowds were still heavy inside Potterland, but no-one stopped us from walking in.

Only problem with going in at six is that you've only got four hours to wait in lines. ;)

I went Tuesday around 10am and there was a 15 minute wait to get in to the land. Then there was a 90 minute wait on Forbidden Journey, but they had single rider and I basically walked on. All the stores and restaurant had huge lines the whole day. The rain did not shorten the lines at all. I left and returned at 8pm and the lines were still huge everywhere so I went on Dragons then went to FJ again, this time I waited in the regular line (90 minutes but it kept breaking so more like 2 hours, rode at 10:15pm) so at 10:30 got some butterbeer from the cart since there was only 5 people in line instead of 500. I highly suggest the regular line at FJ if you want the full experience. It was well worth waiting to see all the rooms and effects, with single rider you only see one room with talking paintings and thats it. The ride is very well done, but the queue makes it just so much better.
