Universal Studios Orlando is taking its tentative first steps to welcome eager guests back to one of their favorite parks, starting with their CityWalk. Starting this Thursday, May 14, certain shops and dining areas will be opening with limited hours, occupancy, and restrictions for guests. Social distancing guidelines and some restrictions will apply to both visitors and employees — even requirements for temperature checks.\nUpon arrival, both guests and employees can expect to have their temperatures checked; those with a temp of 100.4 degrees or more will not be allowed in.\nFace masks will be mandatory for employees and guests, too. Visible floor markings, as well as reduced capacity, will help promote social distancing.\nCityWalk's will be open daily from 4:00 p.m to 10:00 p.m. with free self-parking; however, valet parking will not be available at this time.\nWhile the Universal Cinemark, Blue Man Group, and all its nightclubs will remain closed for the time being, you can still look forward to revisiting Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, Red Oven Pizza Bakery, and Voodoo Doughnuts.\nUpdate! Starting 5/14 select #UniversalCityWalk venues will open from 4-10pm w/ limited menus and guidelines for Team Members and guests.See full details at https://t.co/1yjxKst7OT pic.twitter.com/6cfxN215JR— Universal Orlando Resort (@UniversalORL) May 12, 2020\nRestaurants will be offering limited menus at this time, as well as have spaced out tables to comply with social distancing guidelines.\nThe option of cashless payments will be available at all venues, as well as the opportunity to order food and drinks via the Universal Orlando Resort app.\nView this post on Instagram We miss you THIS much!
