We went to Universal Studios today, Saturday, arriving at the gate for US around 8:10 a.m. We were some of the first people there. You see, only Islands of Adventure/ HP offer Early Adm, so that’s where the crowd was. They all want HP!
They let us in right at 9 a.m., and by then there was quite a crowd behind us, but not overwhelming. Of course, it all depends upon when you go. This is the first time we arrived for rope drop, so I’m only guessing when I say if you get there before 8:30 a.m., you should be ok. Best of all to you!
