Slowest: These periods tend to have the lowest crowd levels, but sometimes this means that one or two rides will be down for maintenance, which can be common over the winter/non-holiday periods usually found within September-March. Wait times should be under an hour for even the most popular rides.

Moderate: Also common over the winter months, wait times are generally under an hour, but the one or two most popular attractions can be over an hour wait, nights and early mornings are still calm and easy to get a lot of rides in.

Busy: Top tier attractions will have over an hour wait, paths start to feel crowded, but doing all the rides in one park in one day is still possible.

Busier: Paths are very crowded, it gets hard to move around in the most popular areas of the parks, in the early morning the most popular rides' queues may overflow out into the pathways. Best to arrive an hour early if planning to ride the most popular attractions first. Less popular attractions start to see waits around an hour long. Express passes are suggested.

Busiest: Usually unable to do everything in the park in a single day, it's best to have a plan in place or express passes. Arriving at the park at least an hour early is needed to go on the most popular rides. Some rides may have queues overflowing into the pathways. 2 or 3+ hour waits can occur on the most sought after attractions.

Universal Studios Crowd Levels 2020, Islands of Adventure

After the New Years' crowds die down, January is one of the best months to visit the Orlando area, as many people are back to work or school. The weather may be cooler on some days which could close the water park. During this time, it's not unusual to see one water attraction at Islands of Adventure down for maintenance. February is another great month to visit the theme parks. Watch out for the middle weeks where some northern schools have vacation. March brings crowds and will be busy for most of the month, go early or late to try and avoid the large school vacation crowds.

Spring Break continues in April for some schools, but you'll find that crowds are lower than March outside of those weeks. May is a good time to visit the parks as some schools are still in session and the weather isn't scorching yet. June is the beginning of Summer peak crowds and will see increases throughout the month.

October through December are quite slow in Orlando when it's not a holiday. Halloween Horror Nights bring crowds to the area in October, which make the park a bit busier than November. As the holiday nears closer in December, crowds will rise. During this time, it's not unusual to see one water attraction at Islands of Adventure down for annual maintenance.
