From Rob PastorOrlando Informer has a crowd size calendar for the Universal parks on their web site. They have projections for Jan. 2013.

From Dominick D^YES. Orlando Informer has the best UO crowd calendar (there's also Undercover Tourist but that's very inaccurate). I haven't tried their touring plans because I'm a local.

From Doug JenkinsJanuary / February are GREAT time to go to Universal, not so much Disney as they usually start doing a low price 5 month Florida resident ticket Jan 1. Best way to check crowd sizes is to go to Universals 3 hotels and see when the least expensive room rates occur. Good indicator.

From Dominick DWhat are you talking about Doug? I've been to Disney when the Floridians have those passes and crowds were low.
