BREAKING: Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure Have Reached Capacity

Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure have both reached capacity today as of 12:00 PM. It is unclear if they will reopen to all guests later today.

This week marks spring break for many students and Universal Orlando Resort continues to celebrate Mardi Gras. A few days ago, Universal warned Annual Passholders that the theme parks would be likely to reach capacity.

  1. What does capacity mean? Maximum? We were there at 8 am and rode 2 rides with reasonable wait time of 30-50 minutes. Then by 10 am lines all over 1 hour and many 2 hours. Popular rides breaking down. Cue unavailable, fast passes unavailable. Long lines for food and drinks…1 hour. Staff appeared very frustrated. The walkways were very crowded. This is our 3rd time here and we have come during spring break before and this is the largest crowd I’ve ever seen. It was miserable! Masks are only Covid protocols followed as no way to social distance w this many people allowed in the park. My teenage boys who have come twice before w great experiences were so disappointed with the chaos and unreasonable long lines.

    1. I’m very frustrated as we have 4 day park to park passes and in no way will we be able to get our moneys worth! Very sad. We haven’t even been able to get into the park at all!

  2. Um, it’s Spring Break. BOTH franchise companies are/will be at limits. Anyone going should expect long lines and lots of people. 35% capacity means a lot including less employees. Staying on property to get the extra hour is key during these times and the front of the line passes too.
