With spring break approaching (and has already began for some), it is easy to assume that large crowds will be arriving in Central Florida. With both Disney World and Universal Orlando open to Guests, there is no better place to put a smile on your face than in Florida!
With Disney World, we are able to see what kinds of crowds to expect at the parks because of Disney’s Park Pass reservation system that allows Guests to see when a park has hit its 35% capacity. At Universal Orlando Resort, however, entry into the park is on a first-come first-serve basis, so it is harder to tell what days will hit capacity in advance, and even which will be less busy, as we continue to navigate attending theme parks during the ongoing pandemic.
Well, it looks like Universal is getting ready to expect large crowds in the coming days as Universal has just sent out emails to their Annual Passholders letting them know that Universal Orlando is expecting Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay to hit capacity over the next few weeks.
As you can see in the above email, Universal is encouraging Guests and Universal Annual Passholders to continue to check their capacity updates as the day progresses to avoid disappointment.
Bioreconstruct (@bioreconstruct) also took to Twitter to show that barricades have been implemented into the theme parks to have more crowd control as spring break approaches.
Barricades up at IOA entrance in preparation for a busy Friday. It’s possible that UOR parks will reach capacity often during next few weeks of Spring Break.

If we take a look at Universal’s previous busy season, which was during the holidays, we can see that the theme parks were hitting capacity before the parks were even technically opened up. With this news in mind, Guests should expect to experience full limited capacity days when visiting Universal over the next few weeks.
Do you plan on visiting Universal Orlando Resort during spring break?
