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.
We’ve been hard at work scoping out all the latest news for you this week. Today we have all the details on what’s happening that affects the Disney Parks.
See all of our coverage on Disney park closures and reopenings HERE. We still have a LOT to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in… .
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!
In case ya missed it, Universal Studios in Orlando is OFFICIALLY open for Annual Passholders.
Currently, guests traveling to Universal are required to wear face masks throughout the parks and CityWalk. When Disney World reopens July 11th, they will require fact coverings as well. We know that wearing is a bit of an adjustment, but why not add a little Universal flair to your new required accessory?
Universal Orlando’s CityWalk has officially re-opened back up to guests! And, the Universal Orlando theme parks plan to reopen on June 5th.
Now while the east coast edition of Universal is well on its way to reopening, Universal Hollywood has not announced a reopening date for their theme park, shopping, or dining locations. But, we might have just spotted a hint.
Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, and SeaWorld have been closed since March due to the current global health situation.
The state of Florida is currently in “Full Phase One” of reopening its economy. It’s within this phase that both Universal Orlando’s CityWalk and Disney Springs have started a phased reopening while the theme parks have remained closed until further notice. Today, however, in a meeting of the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force, Universal Orlando Resort has presented a plan for its reopening, including a proposed reopening date. [Read more…]
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.
While Florida has started to re-open places like Disney Springs and Universal CityWalk, Texas is in talks about opening its own theme parks to guests again.
And, now another state is making plans to re-open its larger tourist locations.
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.
