[News] Universal Orlando Resort plans to reopen with "soft-open" on June 1

Yesterday was marked a historic event in the history of the theme park.

Universal Orlando Resort presented its reopening plans to the group from Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force and is the first to do so in front of the Walt Disney World Resort and the SeaWorld Orlando.

Universal Orlando Resort plans to reopen its theme parks on June 5 to the public, with a smooth reopening for team members from June 1st.

From June 3 to 4, only guests (as holders of the annual pass) will have access.

Universal Orlando plans to reopen just in time for its 30th birthday on June 7.

See some preventive measures that will be taken when Universal Orlando theme parks reopen. Universal will implement a system of the three “S” - Screening, Sanitization and Spacing:


Universal will provide free disposable facial coverage for guests who have not brought their own.

As we saw in the reopening of the CityWalk, masks will also be available for sale.

The recreation areas will remain closed and the 3D glasses will be distributed individually.

There will also be a reduction and / or elimination of water and fog elements in the parks.

At dining locations, menus will be converted to single use with individually packaged condiments and pre-packaged cutlery.

No buffet or self-service options in restaurants will be available.

The mobile food order will be activated for direct table seating and food delivery.

Contactless payments will be encouraged by using Apple Pay, Google Wallet and Virtual Wallet in the Universal Orlando app.

Volcano bay will be moving forward with the reopening now that the CDC has declared that well-maintained pools using chlorine and bromine are known to inactivate the COVID-19 virus.

Passenger vehicles, rafts and life jackets will be cleaned continuously.

The number of tubes in the lazy river and life jackets will be reduced.

For rafts, the number of guests will be reduced to the size of the party, without grouping unknown parts. The sun loungers will be placed in clusters to support the seats of the travel parties, with each cluster separated 6 feet apart.

As we saw throughout the CityWalk, several signs and demarcations of social distance align the reasons:


Virtual lines will be used at the most frequented attractions, with Single Rider eliminated everywhere. The attraction queues will also be modified:


All tourniquets will have row spacing and spacing, with a reduced tourniquet count.

Universal is known for the use of lockers.

During the phased reopening, 50% of the lockers will be deactivated and Team Members will monitor the guests' access to the lockers area to be interleaved.

Groups will be spaced as appropriate for the distance

Post-show meet & greets with the characters will be eliminated and the characters will remain on stage for the photos.

The parades will not be carried out during the phased reopening.

Stands for maps will be removed, with team members distributing maps and warnings individually.

Guests will be encouraged to use the park's mobile app instead of paper maps.

The following “Important Information” booklet will be distributed with information on masks, temperature checks and more.


Rich Costales, executive vice president of resort operations at Universal Orlando Resort and John Sprouls, executive vice president and managing director of Universal Parks & Resorts made the announcement at the Orange County meeting today.

The reopening of plans will require endorsement by the Mayor of Orange County before they can be sent to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

You can see the full Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force meeting as of yesterday:

At the moment, all parks and hotels Walt Disney World remain closed and no reopening date has been announced or identified.

THE Disney springs began its phased reopening yesterday, with restaurants and third-party stores now able to meet the new increased capacity limits.

Beginning May 27, Disney stores and restaurants will also reopen under new guidelines.

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets arriving in Orlando or even on the day of the park.

We do not in any way recommend that you do this for a variety of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MAINLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!

Access our sale site to buy your tickets or request a free consultation to find out exactly which tickets are the best to buy.
