Fact Sheet – Phased Reopening of Universal Orlando Resort beginning June 5 

From new protocols to park hours, here’s an overview of the most pertinent information for the phased reopening of Universal Orlando Resort that begins June 5, 2020.

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


The health and safety of our guests and team members remain our top priority – and we need everyone’s help to adhere to CDC’s guidelines.

As a reminder, here’s what we’re doing:

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

And here’s what we need from our guests:

  • Everyone will be required to wear a face covering during their visit. If a guest doesn’t have a facecovering, we’ll have them available for purchase.
  • We encourage guests to follow CDC guidelines and conduct temperature checks prior toarrival. We will also implement temperature checks for each guest prior to their arrival to the theme parks and Universal CityWalk. If a guest has a temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater, they will not be able to enter.

*Guests are urged to follow CDC guidelines and conduct temperature checks prior to their arrival. Guests should evaluate their own risk as they determine whether to visit, and – in line with CDC guidelines – we specifically do not recommend older adults or individuals at high-risk with serious underlying medical conditions visit the destination. People who show no symptoms can still spread COVID-19 if they are infected. Any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19 and Universal cannot guarantee guests will not be exposed during their visit.


  • Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay will open* to the public beginning June 5 with limited attendance
  • Universal CityWalk will continue its limited operation with additional venues* and extended hours *Available attractions, experiences and venues will be shared soon.

HOURS OF OPERATION (subject to change) 
Universal Studios Florida:
• 9a.m.–6p.m.

Universal’s Islands of Adventure
• 9a.m.–6p.m.

Universal’s Volcano Bay
• 10a.m.–5p.m.

Universal CityWalk Orlando
• 8a.m.–10p.m.


  • We strongly encourage all guests to download and utilize the Official Universal Orlando Resort App for their visit. With the app, they’ll be able to make cashless transactions, order food and beverage from select dining venues, utilize Virtual Line for select attractions, and more.
  • We will convert all menus to single-use in our dining venues.
  • Mobile Food & Drink Ordering will be available for select venues in the parks and Universal CityWalk as we work to make contactless options available for guests. Mobile Food & Drink Ordering and available venues can be accessed through the Official Universal Orlando Resort App.
  • Select rides and attractions will utilize Virtual Line – which allows guests to select a time to experience an attraction via the Official Universal Orlando Resort App so they’re minimizing the time they’re actually waiting in line. Guests can access Virtual Line while onsite at the theme parks and can view available attractions through the app.
  • Guests will be required to use hand sanitizer before boarding ride vehicles. For any 3-D attraction, Universal Orlando team members will individually hand out 3-D glasses instead of guests having to pick them up themselves.
  • There will be staggered spacing on ride vehicles and in queue lines to help place distance between groups. Please note that this may cause wait times to be longer than usual.
