PHOTOS: Large Holiday Weekend Crowds Descend on Universal Orlando Resort, Both Theme Parks Reach Capacity
Some United States workers have Monday off for the Columbus Day holiday. That long weekend is likely a factor in the increased crowds at Universal Orland Resort. Both Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure reached capacity before noon Saturday and Sunday.
At Universal Studios Florida, guests queued for attractions, lined up for food, and jammed paths and common areas.
