in 2016, attendance was 19.300.000 ( 2 parks together)

that's roughly 52.900 visitors inside both parks on average every day

that's 26.450 visitors on average, per park, per day

that's 66% of capacity on average.

so even with *close to capacity* days, it's easy to see that there is still room for a few thousand people, in the current state of the parks

with, let's say, 30 days of 40.000 visitors per park (highly exagerated assumption), and if we draw the average in both parks, that's 2.400.000 guests in 30 days, leaving an average of 25.200 guests per park per day, on the 335 non capacity days (365 - random example of 30 capacity days)

anyway you look at it, 5000 additional guests per park and per day will not make much of a difference on most days. Most days would be below 30.000 guests on a 40.000 capacity cap. Still manageable for anyone.

Days that are aleady busy would be overly busy, and the rest of the year would just be slightly busier.

but nothing to call the cops about

That seems rather low. Where did you get the capacity of Universal's parks from?

I know some forums from a few years ago mentioned a number around that figure (35k to 40k) but they also said the same of the Disney parks. And clearly that's wrong! For example this site says, "IOA's capacity is 40 thousand to my knowledge (as is WDW's Magic Kingdom)" but we know that MK's capacity is just under 100k. MK's average daily attendance is 55k so the capacity must be more than this.

Magic Kingdom is approximately the same size as Universal Studios - about 108 acres. If 55,000 people can reasonably easily fit inside MK then I'd expect 55,000 to fit inside Universal Studios without reaching capacity.

I think they are honestly planning for the third park, that's down by convention centre I think with all the land they bought.
These hotels will be perfect for transporting to all the Universal parks, as it will most probably be a 20-30 min bus journey to the new park. I think they are planning a longer game, they space is going unused and the hotels might not even hit capacity for a while but when the third park opens and they offer an incentive to stay at their hotel I think it will be very popular.
I never drive when staying in Orlando so the benefit of having the free transport to the parks and reliable shuttle service that has regular intervals is appealing.
I loved staying at Cabana Bay and being able to get the transport back whenever I wanted instead of set times was brilliant.

These hotels are catering for the budget option and not necessarily visiting Universal every day therefore not significantly impacting on visitor numbers to Universal.
Its like the Seaworld hotels arent just for those visiting Seaworld. They basically have the spare land due to wet n wild closing and they have decided to build hotels on them and as they will be new and sparkly-more competition for the current I-drive hotels 😄👍

And bring people into city walk and isnt there a new universal mall rumoured like Disney springs? At least they are thinking of the value market rather than squeezing every cent out of you like Disney .
