There will be floor markings throughout the park to help guests maintain social distancing. Guests will be required to use hand sanitizer at select locations including prior to boarding ride vehicles. Universal will also limit capacity at each park to ensure social distancing.

Cashless payments will be available at all areas (guests can use mobile ordering at select locations). Parking will be staggered in garages to maintain distance.

The hours of operation beginning June 5th are:

Universal Studios Florida:
9am-6pm Daily

Universal’s Islands of Adventure
9am-6pm Daily

Universal’s Volcano Bay
10am-5pm Daily

Universal CityWalk Orlando

Guests should evaluate their risk in determining whether to visit. Any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19, and there’s no guarantee that guests will not be exposed during their visit.
