While we love a good fine-dining experience, sometimes we just need to snack on a cheeseburger or munch on some french fries. Sure, Disney World has plenty of quick-service restaurants with typical theme park foods, but today we’re going OUTSIDE of Disney World (that’s right, we’re venturing out into the real world) to shout out some local Orlando restaurants.
Major aspects of the theme parks and attractions in California are beginning to reopen! We recently went on a trip to Universal Studios Hollywood to see what was up at CityWalk, which reopened to the public on June 10!
After our first trip to CityWalk in Orlando, we were eager to see how the two shopping and dining districts compared! Much of what we saw was the same, but there were a couple of major differences!
While Universal Orlando’s CityWalk reopened last month and Florida’s Univeral Orlando’s theme parks reopened on June 5th, the same can’t be said for Universal Hollywood which has remained closed in California since mid-March.
But now Universal Hollywood’s CityWalk has just announced that they’ll begin a phased reopening of several shops and restaurants TODAY!
Universal Orlando plans to open its theme parks this week and Disney World will follow next month. Earlier today, we learned that Disneyland Resort is now only accepting reservations beginning July 15th. But according to recent reports, Universal Studios Hollywood is already considering opening the theme parks in July.
Although Disney Springs is set to begin a phased re-opening tomorrow, May 20th, and Universal Orlando’s CityWalk has re-opened to the public, Florida’s major theme parks still remain closed.
No opening dates have been announced for Disney World, Universal Orlando, or SeaWorld Orlando, but SeaWorld appears to already be prepping for guests to return.
In its first step towards resuming operations, CityWalk at Universal Orlando began a phased reopening on May 14th.
Our team was on-site to check out the reopening of CityWalk on May 14th; and with Disney Springs scheduled to begin its own phased reopening on May 20th, we want to share our most important takeaways from our experience to help you prepare! Here are some things we learned at CityWalk that we need you to know before you visit Disney Springs!
Oooh, ya’ll, we’re in for a real TREAT!!
We took you with us LIVE to the re-opening of Universal Orlando’s CityWalk on Thursday to see the new health and safety protocols, retail offerings, Hollywood Drive In Golf, and dining locations that are currently greeting guests.
