    Apparently crowds were so light that Star Tours was a walk on the entire day practically. Crowds started to form for the fireworks show.

    Blockouts and having a reputation for being busy. If locals think it's going to be miserable crowded they'll stay away. Now word of mouth will be that it really isn't so bad, so I'll guess next year will be busy again.

    I've been there on Thanksgiving weekends where it isn't very crowded, but they anticipated heavy crowds.

    Just a wild guess.

    This, people don't like being in an over crowded park, hence why most of my friends prefer Universal in the "off season" because most of the attractions are walk on.

    Yep. That coupled with price increases.

    I know it has for our family. Not going to pay all the money to travel from out of state, tickets and hotels just to be jammed into an overcrowded park.

    With the "off-season" becoming smaller and smaller, our visits are getting fewer and farther between.

    Because it's so crowded, nobody goes there anymore?

    I think it's due to the economy and the fact that the 4th fell on a Monday that made a difference. Most people I knew didn't end up traveling because it was on a Monday, or were traveling back home on that day rather than celebrating.
    "Up" is a relative concept. It has no intrinsic value.

    It has been really, really, hot here lately. I would say the "local crowd" (myself included) avoided it because of how terrible the weather was.

    I would vote for it was because the 4th was on a Monday and people didn't take Tuesday off.
