Universal Orlando is Opening June 5th and Here are the Safety Guidelines for Guests
Orlando theme parks are beginning to open as early as next week. After the local and state government approved park plans, guests have opening dates for Seaworld, Legoland, Universal and Walt Disney World parks. Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay will open to the public on June 5th, but there are some safety guidelines guests will have to abide by in order to enjoy the parks.
Important Information from Universal
Here is important information to know if you are visiting the parks directly from Universal’s website.
Guests and Team Members must comply with the following:
Everyone must wear a face covering during their visit.
Temperature checks will be required upon arrival and any guest with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater will not be admitted.
Wash hands often and for at least 20 seconds.
