There are a number of changes that have been happening recently at the Universal Orlando Resort. Universal recently eliminated mandatory temperature checks and also decreased social distancing measures from six feet to three feet.

All of this could possibly be signaling that the Universal Orlando Resort could soon be increasing capacity — although a capacity increase has not been confirmed at this time. But either way, more and more travelers are visiting Orlando and wanting to head to the theme parks.

The theme parks are not the only places continuing their reopening efforts. Universal Orlando is also opening more of its hotels as demand for its theme parks increases. So far, the following Universal Orlando hotels are open and taking reservations:
