Universal Orlando Resort is home to two world-class theme parks in Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and one water park in Universal’s Volcano Bay.

Over the course of the pandemic, Universal Orlando has held similar policies to Walt Disney World Resort and has also done things differently from time to time.

One thing that has been different the entire time compared to Walt Disney World Resort has been the fact that Universal Orlando has never required a Park Reservation to get into any of its theme parks.

Universal reached capacity at several points during the pandemic but still did not require Park Reservations for entry. As capacity increased, more Guests were able to enter to enjoy the Parks.

However, it seems that Universal Orlando might at least be considering a change to that system.

Twitter account Attractions Magazine (@Attractions) shared that Universal Orlando recently sent out a survey to annual pass holders asking their opinions on potentially requiring reservations.

Universal Orlando seems to be thinking about requiring reservations to go to their parks. A recent survey sent to annual passholders asked them how they feel about it.

Many Guests have complained about the Disney Park Reservation system, but it has allowed Disney to maintain its capacity restraints and the Resort has even introduced park-hopping into the system, as well.

At this point, Universal has not confirmed whether it is considering making this change or what the change would look like if it did implement a Park Reservation system.
