Best day to visit Universal

We will be visiting US for 2 days between June 5-16. Are there better days of the week to visit? Is there a crowd calendar like there is for WDW? We have never been to US before.

I have never seen a crowd calendar but was told on these boards that Sundays were the best. We have gone twice on Sunday's and they were indeed better than the other day we visited.

Thanks..now we need to pick our second day. I wonder if Fri June June 7 would be a good choice? I wonder if crowds will just get heavier the following week (more kids getting out of school)?

June 6th (Thursday) is the last day when the crowd level is moderate...the rest of your dates are all marked as busy. In terms of a Disney crowd calendar, I would say moderate would be 5 or 6 and busy would be a 7 or 8. Whichever dates you choose, make sure you get there before opening and plan to spend the entire day to make sure you can do everything you want.

BTW...there will be a good chance you might be able to ride Transformers during a soft opening but of course its all chance. You'd definitely want to hang around the attraction when you visit the Studios.

I'm wondering if Sunday, June 2 and Monday June 3rd will be crowded. We are a group of 5. One will be using an EVC and another on oxygen.
