Universal Orlando Resort has once again quietly changed hours at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure. With peak crowd levels experienced over Labor Day weekend, many expect the parks to be relatively empty with no Halloween Horror Nights to draw in the Fall crowds. However, it seems Universal is tinkering with park hours on select weekends, with the parks closing as late as 8:00 PM, which is now later than most Walt Disney World theme parks.
You can view updated Park Hour calendars for both parks below. Keep in mind that hours have been changing fairly rapidly, so we may see another change in the coming weeks.
At Universal Studios Florida, park hours are 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, with the exception of select weekends. On Sept. 12-13, we’re seeing a two-hour extension in the evening, with the park closing at 7:00 PM. On Saturday, Sept. 19, the park is scheduled to close at 8:00 PM, with a 7:00 PM closure that Sunday as well.
Hours throughout October are currently standard, with the park open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
At Universal’s Islands of Adventure, park hours are 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, with the exception of select weekends. On Sept. 12-13, we’re seeing a two-hour extension, with the park opening at 9:00 AM and closing at 7:00 PM. On Saturday, Sept. 19, the park is also scheduled to open at 9:00 AM and close at 8:00 PM, with a 7:00 PM closure that Sunday as well.
Hours throughout October are currently standard, with the park open from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
As a reminder, Universal’s Volcano Bay will now be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays through the end of the year. The park typically operates from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, however we’re also seeing some weekend extensions, with the park open until 7:00 PM on Sept. 12 and through 6:00 PM on every other weekend throughout the month.
Hours for CityWalk remain unchanged at this time, with the shopping and dining district open daily from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM.
