Best Times to Visit Universal Studios Hollywood in 2021 and 2022

by Leap on July 29, 2021 603 Los Angeles

You long-time frog fans know Tad as our official frog family videographer. While he toadally enjoys making ride videos for our YouTube channel, he really has set his sights on becoming the next Spielberg. For him, it doesn't get any better than Universal Studios Hollywood. It's a thrill for him to be "on location" inside the theme park that just so hoppens to be where "Back to the Future" and "Psycho" were filmed. And we know he's not the only one who's excited to visit! With the addition of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and more family-friendly attractions, this theme park/working studio sure is more hopping than ever!

Whether you have a filmmaker in your family or you're just a bunch of fun-seekers, it helps to know not only what to expect when visiting Universal Studios Hollywood after its recent reopening, but also, when to plan your trip. And, action!

When to Visit Universal Studios Hollywood in 2021 and 2022

Best Time to Visit Universal Studios Hollywood - Family in Front of Globe

First thing's first: We are toadally glad to be out of 2020, but it's important to note that 2021 is still very different than years' past. In order to reopen safely, Universal Studios Hollywood has some important health and safety guidelines in place, which you can read all about in our full reopening post.

While there is no reservation system in place at Universal Studios Hollywood, tickets are date-based, effectively limiting capacity each day through the number of tickets sold. That means it's more important than ever to purchase your tickets ahead of time so that your preferred dates aren't sold out. And one other piece of advice: During our recent trips, Express Passes have become more useful than ever in maximizing our time at the parks. Much like admission, it's best to purchase your Express Passes in advance (they can sell out, and more so, the advance, online price is usually the lowest).

That's right: While capacity is limited at Universal Studios Hollywood, the demand is still very much there! Visitors were happy to hop back into the action, and with summer break fast approaching, we don't see that trend changing any time soon. While this year is different in many ways, some things stay pretty consistent year after year, including attendance trends.

Best Time to Visit Universal Studios Hollywood - Mystery Machine

Our Los Angeles Crowd Calendar is the best tool to help you get a day-by-day look at expected crowds a full year in advance. If your particular dates are not listed, jump down to the comments below and ask. We frogs will be hoppy to answer. We've got a similar post devoted to the best and worst times to visit Disneyland if you hoppen to be planning visits to both. (Now, if only we could predict travel times on those SoCal highways!)

It's probably a good time to talk about Avengers Campus. While it is opening in an entirely different park (Disney California Adventure), it has and will continue to influence crowds at Universal Studios Hollywood for some time. While crowds aren't impacted as much by Avengers Campus at Universal Studios Hollywood as they are at Disneyland, they do have some impact. This is because many of the people who are making the trek to LA to experience Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure will also decide to hop over to Universal Studios Hollywood.

How Locals Influence the Best Times to Visit Universal Studios Hollywood in 2021 and 2022

Best Time to Visit Universal Studios Hollywood - Secret Life of Pets

If you’re used to visiting Universal Orlando Resort rather than the Hollywood original, know that there are some differences. The best times to visit Universal Studios Hollywood in 2021 and 2022 aren't necessarily the same ones at Universal Orlando. The biggest difference is the locals. Universal Orlando has locals, but not nearly as many as those in the Los Angeles regional area. More and more of these locals are annual passholders, who think nothing of popping in for a pint of Butterbeer after the end of a long week. A lot of passholders visit on Saturdays, so that may influence you to visit during the week if you can.

While the regional passholders have a large influence on crowds, it's not all doom and gloom. Many passholders have blackout times during the times most popular with tourists — mostly summer, spring break and the holidays, but also a few weekends here and there. Looking at Universal's Silver Annual Pass available days calendar gives you a fairly good idea of the very busiest dates of the year. This is because these are the times when most of the passholders are not allowed to enter.

Now let's hop into the key topic at hand — the dates of the best and worst times for crowds at Universal Studios Hollywood. We'll start with the bad news first (depending on how you look at it).

Expected Busiest Days at Universal Studios Hollywood in 2021

Best Time to Visit Universal Studios Hollywood - Guests in House Robes in Front of Hogwarts Castle

  • Most of May
  • June 3 to Aug. 11, 2021
  • Oct. 1-16, 2021
  • The week of Thanksgiving - Nov. 21-28, 2021
  • Christmas week through the second week of the New Year - Dec. 18, 2021, to Jan. 4, 2022

Expected Busiest Days at Universal Studios Hollywood in 2022

  • Jan. 1-9, 2022
  • MLK Jr. Day - Jan. 14-17, 2022
  • Presidents' Day - Feb. 18-21, 2022
  • Spring break and Easter - March 13 to April 17, 2022 (elevated crowds March 5 to April 24, 2022)
  • Weekends and Grad Nite dates in May
  • June 3 - Aug. 21, 2022
  • The week of Thanksgiving - Nov. 19-28, 2022
  • Christmas week through the second week of the New Year - Dec. 17, 2022 - Jan. 8, 2023

*The fall of Easter impacts Disneyland crowds in the spring. Some school districts base their spring break around Easter; others do not. When Easter falls earlier in the season, March or early April, it has the effect of making a more intense, but shorter spring break season. When Easter falls later, as it does in 2022, the effect is a longer but less intense spring break season. Many California universities consistently have spring break at the end of March, which can affect crowds then.

Other Dates That Might See Higher Crowds

Best Time to Visit Universal Studios Hollywood - Jurassic World

We've pulled together other days that see higher crowds, but not as high as the absolute worst days. Some of the dates listed are isolated, with the days around them generally fine. These dates do bring in more locals. Anyone out there in La-La-Land aware of other dates that are popular with locals? Share in the comments below!

  • Labor Day - Sept. 6, 2021, and Sept. 5, 2022
  • Yom Kippur (when it falls on a weekday) - Sept. 16, 2021, and Oct. 5, 2022
  • Columbus Day (elevated crowds that week) - Oct. 11, 2021, and Oct. 10, 2022

Hi Valerie!

You can check our Crowd Calendar for details. It's tough to predict what this means in terms of lines; it depends on the time of day, ride and so much more! We would guess at least an hour wait for each ride. An express pass is perfect for times like these!

Hello!

I was curious does UVSH do "wheelchair passes" my oldest son can't stand in long lines due to rhemotologic issues. So other parks we just present our doctors note and we're given a piece of paper that allows us to come back to the ride at a certain time.

Also what's the best food (price doesn't matter but quality does) inside the park? Thank you so much!

Reply
Jan 30, 2018 at 9:16 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Brittney!

You should definitely swing by Guest Relations to speak with a Team Member and see what accommodations could be made for you. You can also call ahead to see if you will be eligible. Typically, a doctor's note is not needed ... but it can't hurt!

Our favorite restaurant is The Three Broomsticks in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This is a yummy spot and especially fun for Harry Potter fans!

Hi Valerie,

Are you visiting Universal Orlando Resort in Florida or Universal Studios Hollywood in California? If you're visiting Universal Orlando Resort, Loews Sapphire Resort is a wonderful hotel! If you are interested in getting Express Passes and have flexibility on which hotel to choose, we recommend also considering Loews Portofino Bay, Hard Rock Hotel or Loews Royal Pacific Resort; when you stay at one of these resorts, you'll receive complimentary Universal Express Unlimited passes! Your trip is during a busy time at the parks since it's summer vacation, so Express Passes can certainly help minimize wait times.

Hi there, we are from Oregon and went to Universal last year on our spring break which is the last week in March. The park was definitely busy, but was bearable. We were thinking about going again this year, but everything seems to indicate that it will be very busy that week. Is there any reason to think it will be busier this year than last? An alternate time would be the end of Frebruary. I know it's not typically as warm then. Do you know if the water play area by Minions closes down at any point because of weather? Thanks for all the great info!

We will be visiting Universal Studios the day after Tbanksgiving. Are non peak tickets ok to purchase or is this a black out day?

Hi AB,

Looking at our Los Angeles Crowd Calendar, we're expecting average crowds at Universal on that day. You should be fine without FOL. As for hotels, The Hilton Los Angeles is right next door to the park!

Hi Katie,

You'll be fine with Non-Peak tickets for Universal Studios Hollywood on those days. You will not need date-specific tickets.

Hello.

We are planning a trip on the 26 or 27 of October. Is Thursday going to be that much slower? We will not be staying for the late night scary part, so plan for 8:00am entry. We are also driving from Palm Springs area, what should we add to our map trip for traffic conditions.

Thank you

Hi Lesile,

On our Los Angeles Crowd Calendar, we're forecasting average crowds for both those days. We rely on Google Maps for our traffic needs. Perhaps our SoCal readers can chime in with another recommendation!

I'm planning for Sunday Oct. 29th 2017. I'm sure there will be stuff going on due to Halloween, but I plan for early entry (8am). How well will I fare?

Hi Zen,

You should be able to see much of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with that early entry. Have fun!

Hi!

We have season passes for Universal and want to visit one last time for Xmas season to see the Wizarding world and also Grinchmas. It looks like they just released dates for those events and based on our blackout days the only two days we could go to Grinchmas would be Sunday 12/10 or Friday 12/15. We would be at the park also several other full days that week, but aren't sure which day would be a better bet for crowds. Sunday you get an extra hour but it is a weekend, Friday you get less time and it is the Friday just before winter break - do you have any recommendations?

Thanks!

Jessica

Hi Jessica,

Looking at our Crowd Calendar, we're forecasting average crowds both those days. Granted, it's hard to know what kinds of crowds the Wizarding World Holidays will bring. We recommend going with the day that works for your family.

Keep hopping!
