Best Day for Universal/without HHNUniversal Orlando: Trying to find out which day would be the best for us to visit, when we dont want to do HHN
From Sandra CreeveyWe will be visiting Universal/Islands of Adventure sometime between 17 - 29 October. We will not be doing Halloween Horror Nights, so do you think it would be better to visit on a day that HHN is not on, will it be quieter those days?

From Carrie HoodIt can go either way really. Some days can be more busy but your still looking at the parks winter hours with or without HHN running. If you want to fully avoid the "Stay and Scream" passes that will show up more and more closer to Halloween. The only nights it doesn't run are Monday and Tuesday, if you do plan on going to HHN avoid Friday and Saturday as their always the most busy.

Personally we always go to HHN on Thursdays, we'll normally go to the park the same day. Granted this was before WWoHP opened but we never ran into huge crowds, the longest line last year was Rip Ride and Rockit at 1 hour. Even on Friday last year we didn't have much in the way of crowds but we went Sept24-Oct12th last year.
From Hermione PotterI agree with Carrie. Also - if you go Monday or Tuesday you might avoid a whole bunch of people coming over from Disney who usually go to Magic Kingdom those days ;)
