The sun is shining and the crowds are back at the Universal Orlando Resort. The parks were much busier today than the last few days, and both parks would reach capacity before noon.

The wait times around the park were some of the longest we’ve seen in a while. Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit was open and at a 180 minute wait.

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts queue was at capacity. Guests with Express Passes could still get in line, but the standby was full.

The crowds around the park didn’t feel too bad, but all the attractions had high wait times.

Over in Jurassic Park, we spotted the osprey making a nest along the track, again, despite the construction workers nearby.

Jurassic Park River Adventure had a long line and a 100 minute wait and the line for Pteranodon Flyers was creeping out of Camp Jurassic.

This would be a great time to have an Express Pass.
