UPDATE (5/22/20 4:00pm):
It has happened. Universal Studios Orlando Resort has been approved by local and state authority to open on June 5th. They will be limiting the amount of guests, BUT it will fill up first come, first serve.
Just to remind everyone, we are only in Full Phase 1 of Governor Ron DeSantis’ plan to reopen Florida. In just a few short weeks a theme park might reopen its gates. According to ABC Action News: On Thursday afternoon, the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force approved Universal Orlando Resort’s reopening plan, WFTV reports. Next, the approved plan will go to Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings’ desk for him to endorse before it heads to Gov. DeSantis’ desk.
Universal Orlando employees could enter the park as soon as June 1st and 2nd, Annual Passholders and invited guessts can possibly return June 3rd and 4th and on June 5th to the public. Here is what you can most likely expect according to their plan:
- Mask required for employees and guests
- Contactless payment with the Universal Orlando app
- Virtual lines
Things seem to be moving very quickly. It seems like forever since I-4 had any tourists.
