October < November > December

Events:

Sandwiched between two huge holiday events, October's Halloween Horror Nights and December's Grinchmas, November does not have many scheduled events. Visitors to Universal Orlando this month are free to take advantage of the low crowd levels and explore the parks and attractions with little waiting.

Weather:

It will be warm and sunny during the day, but temperatures will drop in the evenings, so pack a sweater or light jacket if you head to Universal Orlando at night. November is the end of hurricane season in Florida, so keep an eye on the tropics and the weather forecast in the days leading up to your trip.

Crowds:

The beginning of November is one of the least busy times of year to visit Universal Orlando, but crowds will pick up as both Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season approaches. Plan your trip for early in the month if you want to visit during a quiet and relatively calm time of year.

Tips:

  • Save watery rides like the Jurassic Park River Adventure for the warmest part of the day to avoid getting a chill when you visit Universal Orlando in November.
  • Early November is one of the best times of year to visit busy attractions like the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, thanks to low crowd levels and moderate weather.
