Universal Parks & Resorts has unveiled details of its plans to begin a phased reopening of Universal Orlando Resort beginning June 5. The reopening will be carefully managed and include a wide range of new and enhanced best-practice health, safety and hygiene procedures based on guidelines from the CDC and health officials.
With support from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Universal officials shared details of their reopening plan Thursday with Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings’ Economic Recovery Task Force. Mayor Demings recommended approval of Universal’s plans to Gov. DeSantis on Friday. Universal Orlando will move toward its phased reopening while continuing to monitor local conditions and work with health officials.
Universal Orlando has been closed since March 16. Universal CityWalk Orlando began reopening May 14 with new health, safety and hygiene procedures – giving Universal experience it will put into practice as it reopens its theme parks.
The reopening will include Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay.
Attendance during this time will be carefully managed and controlled. Universal will soon schedule team members for training on its new procedures.
It will conduct a team-member-preview on June 1 and June 2 so the new procedures can be practiced and refined.
A limited number of guests will be invited to visit on June 3 and June 4 as Universal continues to prepare for its phased opening.
The public opening will be on June 5, with Universal continuing to manage daily attendance.
