We are visiting Universal for just one day the last weekend in April. The posted park hours now show 8am-6pm! I understand that the early closing is for their Grad Bash. We are really only going for to The Wizarding Worlds, so I was planning to be finished by 4pm, anyway. But I have two questions for the experts here…
We are staying onsite specifically to get the early entry. Does this mean we will be entering at 7am? Ugh!
The crowd predictions for Saturday, which is when we intended to go, are a 5/6. Friday has a 2/4. How crowded are Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade going to feel with a 5/6? Would it be worth changing our plans around to visit on Friday? (We are doing Disney the days prior, but could switch and then finish with Disney on Saturday.)
Any advice is welcome! Thanks!
