This will be our first trip to UOA/IOA and there will be 7 of us going. The dates we will be in Orlando are June 8-15. We have 3 day tickets but are hoping to spend only 2 in the parks. Is it as importnat to figure out which days are busiets like when we go to Disney? I am at a loss for planning this trip...but super excited!! Thanks for any help!

Early June isn't too bad crowd wise so try to hit IoA on a Sunday since it seems to be slower...and try the Studios just about any other day except Fridays and Saturdays.

I have heard (of course) rumors that Transformers might soft open in June so if that becomes true then expect more crowds at US, I would think mainly locals since most people would plan trips for after transformers official opening

I wouldn't worry too much about crowds for soft openings...no one knows when/if they will happen. I don't think many people are going to visit just to maybe get a chance to ride if Transformers does a soft opening on that particular day. Crowds will be up but that's because it will be summer and the busy travel period will be upon us again.
