Universal Orlando Will Reopen June 5

Universal Studios theme park plans to reopen to the public at reduced capacity on June 5, the company said on Thursday. The announcement was made during an Orange County, Florida Economic Recovery Task Force meeting attended by county, health department experts, and community leaders. The Economic Recovery Task Force approved Universal’s plans to restart on June 5.

John Sprouls, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer for Universal said that Universal that staggered parking lots, temperature checks, mobile food ordering will be implemented. Staff and guests will be required to wear face coverings. In an effort to reduce physical contact between visitors, interactive play areas for children will remain closed, added Sprouls.

On June 1, team members will be invited to preview the new process as the park practices its protocol. Then on June 3 and 4, a “limited number of guests” will be invited to the park. And finally, on June 5 the parks will be open.

Universal is the first of the major theme parks in Orlando to announce its reopening plans. Walt Disney reopened the Disney Springs shopping area but the park remains closed.

According to a press release, all three parks – Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and the Volcano Bay – will open on the same date, though which rides and restaurants will be available remains unknown.
