This carefully managed reopening comes with stringent new health, safety and hygiene procedures in place. So, as we enjoy our parks together again, everyone will need to follow CDC guidelines and the recommendations of health officials, and Universal Orlando’s policies. Note that any public location where people are present provides an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your visit.

Important Information For Your Visit

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

Therefore we ask that all guests and Team Members comply with 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.

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.

Other Guidelines

We continue to work closely with local health officials and our own health and safety experts and reference CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of our Team Members and guests during this limited opening of Universal Orlando Resort.

  • Limiting capacity and following social distancing guidelines throughout all attractions, restaurants and shops throughout the destination
  • Increasing our already-aggressive cleaning and disinfection procedures, and frequently cleaning all high-touch surfaces
  • All team members will undergo temperature checks and wear face coverings
  • All team members will participate in extensive training on our new 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.

Due to the evolving nature of this situation, details are subject to change without notice.

It seems like they have gotten the go-ahead to move forward for the June 5th public reopening.
