22 May Universal Orlando Announces Tentative Plans to Reopen Beginning of June
Great news for Universal Orlando lovers! The amusement park has introduced a plan which would allow reopening to the public on June 5. The Orange County reopening task force unanimously approved the plan. It must now be approved by the Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
An Overview of Universal Orlando’s Reopening Plan
The plan would begin on June 1, with only team members allowed into the parks on June 1 and June 2. Some passholders would then be allowed to enter the parks on June 3 and June 4. When and if the parks reopen to the public on June 5, capacity will be limited.
Universal Orlando is the first of the city’s theme parks to announce a target reopening date amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Extra precautions would be taken when it is open, including temperature checks upon arrival. In addition, visitors must wear face masks. The park will have face masks available for purchase at the entrance. Cashless payment options and staggered parking will also be the new norm.
In addition, Universal’s interactive play areas, water and mist elements in attractions, parking valet operations and single rider lines will all be closed.
This reopening is an expansion plan on the limited reopening of Universal’s CityWalk entertainment district. This area reopened last week.
