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

Universal Orlando: Just want to have an idea on the best places to go to during Christmas week and if the crowd is manageable or a nightmare...

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.
