Here is the notcie of capacity seen on the Universal Studios App-
It is not just Universal; we have also been covering the attendance spike for Walt Disney World over the weekend.
Both Orlando resorts have seen more visitors this weekend, however it is important to note that currently both Universal and Disney are operating their parks at a reduced capacity due to the corona virus.
The Universal app does not indicated if City Walk has reached capacity. If you plan to visit be sure the check out the official Universal website for details.
Yestereday we reported on Disney Springs, the shopping and dining district on Disney World property, had also hit its limited capacity for the evening. Not just in Orlando though, California also saw Disneyland’s shopping and dining distrcit, Downtown Disney, hit its modified capacity yesterday as well.

Seeing the Orlando tourisim pick up pace over a long weekend raises the question, will the parks be able to raise their capacity to meet demand? The number of COVID-19 cases in Orange County, FL, is trending down. You can continue to follow the corona virus trends on the official @OrangeCoFL Twitter page.
