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.
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.)
Universal’s Islands of Adventure
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.
In October, we’re seeing the first Saturday also showing 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM park hours, with 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM hours on the next two weekends. We expect the expanded hours to be extended to all weekends through the month as well here.
