Lately, it has seemed as if  Universal Orlando Resort has been on a full-speed train back to normalcy.

From reducing physical distancing to 3 ft from 6 ft to removing temperature checks, it truly does feel that the parks are trying to return to a more normal state, as Guests were able to experience before the pandemic. That being said, all of the changes that Universal has made to their health and safety protocols are CDC approved, so Guests and Team Members continue to remain in safe hands.

Universal has also recently reopened single rider queues, began seating every row in their theaters and reopened all children’s play areas, so this next step is not a huge surprise, but rather an addition to the ongoing trajectory of the parks phased reopening. Amusement Insider (@AmusementInside) too to Twitter to share the interactive exhibits are returning to Universal, specifically, in the Discovery Center which houses the exit for VelociCoaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Of course, all of these interactive exhibits are high touch areas that during the early stages of the pandemic, would have remained closed. Now, it seems that Universal is trying to ensure all aspects of their park are fully operational as the summer months approach, and tourism picks up.

Although Universal is reopening, all Universal attractions require Guests to sanitize before boarding, and mask wear is still mandatory unless stationary and actively eating or drinking. The theme park has also just announced its Summer Bites festival, which will surely continue to bring in Guests, just as the Mardi Gras festival did, as it was extended this year due to its success.
