Is it a good idea to visit Harry Potter's world at Christmas? Too Crowded?

Took the family and some cousins in December 2010 to Universal and one of the days we went it rained, so every ride was basically a walk on. The other however, required a 45 minute wait to enter the Wizarding World and another 90 for Forbidden Journey. My suggestion is to go on a rainy day if you're okay with forgoing nightime shows for rides.

On Christmas Day everyone is usually at WDW, so Christmas Day is a little quieter. Other days, unless you go early, Universal will be ussing a FASTPASS like system with a return time to get in.
