Park Hours Extended to 9:00 PM on Select Weekends Through October at Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Orlando Resort has once again quietly changed hours at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure. With modified Halloween offerings now available at both parks through Nov. 1—including HHN-style haunted houses that proved to be quite popular over the testing period—Universal is maximizing hours at the parks on select weekends, with the parks closing as late as 9:00 PM, which is now later than most Walt Disney World theme parks.

You can view updated Park Hour calendars for both parks below. Keep in mind that hours have been changing fairly rapidly, so we may see another change in the coming weeks.

Universal Studios Florida

At Universal Studios Florida, park hours are 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, with the exception of select weekends. For the return of Halloween (Horror Nights) haunted houses this weekend, park hours have been extended through 9:00 PM on Saturday and 8:00 PM on Sunday.

Starting in October, we’re seeing the first Saturday also showing a 9:00 PM close, with 8:00 PM close times for the next two weekends. We expect the 9:00 PM closure time to be extended to all weekends through the month (so long as the crowds are there for it.)

At Universal’s Islands of Adventure, park hours are 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, with the exception of select weekends. For the return of Halloween trick-or-treating this weekend, park hours have been extended to 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM on Saturday and 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM on Sunday.

Universal’s Volcano Bay & CityWalk Orlando

As a reminder, Universal’s Volcano Bay will now be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays through the end of the year. The park typically operates from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, however we’re also seeing some weekend extensions, with the park open through 6:00 PM every weekend throughout the month.
