Once again*, Universal Orlando has changed hours at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
With high crowd levels so far on weekends this month, both parks will be closing an hour later for the next two Saturdays.
Park hours will remain the same on Sundays and throughout the week. Yesterday afternoon, the parks implemented a “soft close”, where attractions and shows operated an hour past official close times.
The “soft close” period allowed guests to make the most of their park day despite high crowd levels.
Park hour calendars for both parks can be found below. However, please keep in mind that hours have been changing fairly swiftly, so another change in the coming weeks is very likely.
