Universal Orlando Adds Social-Distancing Markers as It Prepares to Reopen

Universal Orlando Resort added social-distancing markers to its park entrances to prepare for reopening.

The Orlando Informer shared a photo from the entrance of Universal’s Islands of Adventure showcasing the markers on the ground. Aside from the social-distancing measures, Universal is expected to require masks and gloves and will provide hand sanitizer throughout the park.

Universal closed its parks in Florida and California in mid-March for an expected period of two weeks. This was then extended to mid-April and then the end of May. There is currently no official reopening date set for any of the parks. Universal CityWalk, however, just reopened this past Thursday with limited stores and hours.

While American theme parks remain closed, other regions are allowing some to reopen. Shanghai Disneyland is entering its second week of operations since reopening. It is only allowed to operate at 30 percent capacity and has instituted strict social distancing guidelines. Sections of the Shanghai Disney Resort, including Disneytown, Wishing Star Park and Shanghai Disney Hotel, have been open since early March.

While the parks remain closed, Disneyland Resorts is now allowing guests to make hotel reservations for July 1 and onward. Disney also plans to begin its phased opening of Walt Disney World Resort’s Disney Springs on May 20.
