Universal Studios to reopen CityWalk on May 14th

Following Shanghai Disneyland, Universal Orlando Resort is set to reopen with limited venues and guests on May 14th. The updated attraction will strictly adhere to CDC guidelines, as officially tweeted by Universal Orlando.

Several CityWalk venues reopen on May 14th, but theme park and hotels will remain closed at least till May 31st

In this regard, Universal Orlando has released a set of guidelines that reads —

  • Select CityWalk venues, including Hollywood Drive-In Golf and Universal Studios Store, will be open to visitors from 4 pm – 10 pm daily.
  • Valet parking is not available so as to follow social distancing. Self-parking is mandatory.
  • Theme park rides and many venues will stay closed until further notice — including Universal Cinemark and nightclubs.
  • Many restaurants and food outlets will operate but with capped attendance and limited menus.
  • Additional attractions may come into/go out of operation over time and the guidelines are subject to change.

Along with this, Universal Orlando enforces the need to follow the usual CDC guidelines, such as wearing a protective mask, following 6ft distance and complying with health screenings. Virtual payments and floor markings also will become a norm throughout the venue.
