Universal appears to be gearing up for a crowded Spring Break that they believe will be longer than previous years. Could “pandemic fatigue” be the reason? Let’s talk about it!
According to a report by Orlando Weekly, Universal blocked out their Team Members comp passes from March 13 through April 10. Orlando Weekly states that Universal made the announcement to their Team Members that they expect this season’s spring break to last for “multiple weeks”.
We have seen Universal theme parks reach capacity on the weekends during this past holiday season as well as seen them hit capacity when Universal hosts special events. With this information from Orlando Weekly, it appears that we can expect the same this spring for the Orlando theme park resort.
Could a busy spring break season lead Universal to reopen Volcano Bay before March? Well, Universal has stated that it could reopen the popular water theme park before the anticipated opening date that is currently scheduled.
During previous anticipated busy times for UO, Universal has asked their Passholders to move their plans to weekdays instead of weekends as the parks can get so crowded on Saturdays and Sundays. Perhaps we will see Universal do that again this spring.
Why is that? Of course with many schools doing virtual learning, or changing their schedule due to the ongoing pandemic, some spring breaks may be changed from their originally intended dates. It could also be “pandemic fatigue” from 2020 as many people had their vacation plans canceled or pushed into 2021. We cannot be certain, but we will be keeping an eye on the crowd levels at Universal this spring!
What do you think? Will you be going to Universal for your Spring Break?
