We usually go end of Aug. Id always express pass it...if i can save even just couple of hours a day queuing by staying in a good quality walking distance hotel then its a no brainer for me. 👍

The last week of August is noticeably less busy than the week before.

I got around everything pretty easily on the last Sunday in August last year

Would you be able to update me on how it is? We have used the busy day guide but not sure if that will be much help as I imagine Orlando will be busier next Summer with Galaxies Edge being open etc.
Our last day was today and we have been here 5 days. It was fine in all three Universal parks until today, when it became very busy. As I mentioned above, a Universal employee said it was because seasonal pass holders became eligible today... so perhaps temporary.

We always go at the end of August (except this year when we went in June as the kids have finished school) and we always stay onsite for the Express passes.

It is quieter but it can still be busy. Some rides (Despicable Me / Kong / Dudley Do Right in particular) have long queues most of the day and a lot of the headline rides like Hulk, Rip Ride Rocket, Gringotts vary a lot and can get up to 50 mins or longer.

If you plan your day (get up early for opening, do the busier rides early or late) then it is manageable. Once you have tried Express though it is difficult to go back
