Looking for a good evening activity in Orlando? You're in luck: After a two-month closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, Universal Orlando Resort announced that it's reopening select CityWalk venues starting May 14. Universal Orlando's theme parks and hotels, however, will remain closed at least until the end of the month.
CityWalk will be open daily from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. with limited operations. Guests can choose from a variety of full-service restaurants and quick-service food locations, including Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Red Oven Pizza Bakery, and Voodoo Doughnut. These restaurants will have limited menus and seating.
Guests can shop at Airbrush, Hart & Huntington Tattoo Company, the Universal Studios Store, and some merchandise carts. Hollywood Drive-In Golf, which has two interactive mini-golf courses, is also reopening. The venues that will remain temporarily closed include Blue Man Group, all nightclubs, and Universal Cinemark.
Both guests and employees will be required to comply with safety measures based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. This means they'll have to wear face coverings and practice social distancing, staying at least six feet apart from others. Additionally, temperature checks will be required upon arrival, and guests and employees with temperatures of 100.4 degrees or higher won't be admitted.
Other safety measures Universal Orlando is putting in place? To help with social distancing, there will be limited capacity at all venues as well as signage to help map out physical distancing guidelines. Additionally, high touch surfaces will continuously be cleaned and all venues will offer cashless payments.
