We were just there October 13-18, first time we've ever been there but it seemed pretty slow to us. We were two of the very few people speaking English!

Yes and last year too. It is a new Harry Potter phenomenon.

We were there Oct. 14-16th and it was dead on the Sunday and Monday. Tuesday had more of a crowd, but was still very light.

With our Express Passes from Hard Rock Hotel, we barely waited in line for anything.

We were there at the end of september and we didn't wait more than 5-10 mins for any ride. Even in Harry potterland. The most we Waited for was for that rip ride rock it roller coaster... Which was the worst experience of my life. Just saying lol. We waited for a hour and they made my brother run onto the ride as it was moving and he didn't even get to pick a song. Like wth?

I just went today and did 15 rides in 7 1/2 hours and that included lunch. The longest we waited was probably 30 min. Forbidden Jouney at 4pm was only a 20 min wait and I don't think it really took that long. The crowds seemed big while walking, but the wait times begged to differ!

My Wife and I went last spring 2nd week of March and Mardi Gras was going on. I was very surprised how few people were there. We're going again this next March or early April again.

except in the summer, sundays usually have lower crowds in the park.

families usually travel on the weekends, making sunday a day of departure for them.

Poster said this was true in October.

I am hoping that since Halloween Horror Nights are over that it will be ok this Tue. I really only have Tue or Wed. as my options to go. I am assuming there won't be much difference between those two days.
