Universal Orlando Resort Officially Opening June 5 – What You Need To Know

Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay will welcome guests beginning June 5th.

This carefully managed reopening comes with stringent new health, safety and hygiene procedures in place.  Everyone will need to follow CDC guidelines and the recommendations of health officials, and Universal Orlando’s policies.

In accordance with CDC guidelines, enhanced sanitation procedures have been implemented along with additional measures for distance spacing and screening.

Universal Orlando is asking that all guests and Team Members continue to comply with the following:

Face covering required

Everyone is required to wear a face covering during their visit.

Temperature check required

Temperature checks will be required upon arrival, and guests with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater will not be admitted.

Wash hands often

Wash your hands with soap and water often for at least 20 seconds.

Social distancing

Practice social distancing and keep at least 6 feet (2 meters) between your travel party and others.

Floor markings

When present, please stand on the floor markings until the group in front of you moves forward.

Avoid contact with people who are sick

Use hand sanitizer when required

At select locations including prior to boarding ride vehicles, guests will be required to use hand sanitizer.

Follow Team Member direction

Please follow directions from our team members and have patience as we work through these new operational procedures.

Please note the CDC advises that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Guests should evaluate their risk in determining whether to attend. People who show no symptoms can spread COVID-19 if they are infected, any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19, and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your visit.

We appreciate your cooperation during this unprecedented time. Visit the CDC website for the latest guidelines.
