Hi again. I have all the answers to your questions today! We are going to Universal during spring break (Fri-Sun after Easter) and are not worried a bit with crowd levels 7-8. We were there April 2-4 last year, with crowd levels 4-7. This was before Diagon Alley opened, but with express passes everything was pretty much walk on. It was easy, crowds were no issue at all. There were plenty of people waiting in lines, but we weren’t! Our previous trip was Thanksgiving 2011, with crowd levels 7-8. Every ride had long standby lines it seemed, and Hogsmeade got pretty crowded mid-day. But other than that, it was just as easy. No real waits for anything, maybe 5 minutes at the most. Universal during busy times is not like WDW, it is very manageable (assuming you have express). I would definitely pick spring break over June, but we are allergic to the heat . Not really, but Florida in the summer is very unpleasant for us, unless in the pool all afternoon. Spring break weather was amazing last year. We were at UOR/WDW for 11 days plus travel days, and only had rain 1 day. The humidity was fairly low and the temperatures were perfect.
