PHOTO REPORT: Universal Orlando Resort 12/5/20 (Parks Reach Capacity, Hogwarts House Mini-Backpacks, UOAP Christmas Ornaments Restocked, and More)

It’s another busy Saturday at the Universal Orlando Resort. The crowds didn’t seem too bad as we arrived, but both parks would reach capacity just before noon.

First line of the day! Temperature check and security were quick, but the lines to get in the parks moved slowly.

This is our sign to get out of here. Thanks for joining us around the parks today and be sure to stay tuned for more updates from Universal Parks News Today.

  1. I was there on the 5th and it was busy but not dreadful. Not sure what the allowed capacity is for the parks. Lines weren’t too bad either IMO. Same with Disney the following weekend. Busy but definitely not at normal holiday level crowds of people.
