How busy is Universal Orlando on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day?

Universal Orlando: How long will the lines be?

I don't think the actual attendance number is what I need, since they have the ablilty to use more "cars" for many rides. Does anyone know what the lines are like on those days?

Thanks.

Trust me, the lines are insane right now and christmas week is the busiest week of the year. If you're trying to decide whether or not to go, pick another week. If you've already got all your plans in place and are trying to decide about express - the express passes are completely NEEDED (not wanted, needed) to enjoy the parks that week.

Expect lines throughout the parks to all be longer than an hour and most to exceed 2 hours. Expect there to be a 2-3 hour wait just to get into wizarding world and another 2+ hours to get on any of the rides and 1+ hours to get into the shops there. (Tip: don't wait in line to see the shops. You can buy HP stuff at the big store at the front of Islands)
