While the Universal theme parks still remain closed, CityWalk at Universal Orlando has reopened today with limited hours, limited offerings, and new health and safety measures. One of the safety measures they have implemented is required temperature checks for both employees and guests. Here was our team’s experience with the CityWalk temperature check screening!
As of May 14th, select venues at CityWalk at Universal Orlando will be open from 4PM-10PM. In order to reopen safely, a number of new health measures have been implemented including required face coverings for guests and employees, limited seating, social distancing, and temperature checks for both guests and employees. Those with a fever above 100.4 will not be allowed to enter CityWalk.
Today, our team visited CityWalk on reopening day to get a feel for the new procedures. Let’s take a look at their experience with the temperature check process!
When we arrived at CityWalk today, the very first thing we had to do on our way from the parking lot to the complex was to go through a temperature check. Security Cast Members taking temperatures wore gloves, masks, and face shields.
When it comes to getting your temps checked, you’ll walk up to the employees, and they’ll aim a no-contact forehead thermometer at your head (hats off for this!). As long as your temperature is below 100.4 degrees, you’ll be free to enter Universal CityWalk. Overall, we were actually impressed by the simplicity of the process. Employees were very friendly and helped us feel comfortable with the new procedures.
After your temperature is checked you’re good to move on to bag check. Employees are sanitizing the bins that are used to store guests’ items during the bag check.
We also noticed hand-sanitizer locations before and after the temperature check stop.
Honestly, the experience reminded us of when we have to get scanned by a metal detector at security. It wasn’t super disruptive to our entrance as it only slows you down a little bit. Share your experiences and thoughts on this new process with us!
