The Universal Orlando Resort announced today that it will begin reopening select restaurants and retail locations at its CityWalk shopping and dining district on May 14.
Select locations will be open from 4-10pm each day, starting Thursday. For dining, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Red Oven Pizza Bakery, Voodoo Doughnut, and Auntie Anne’s Pretzels will reopen. On the retail front, Universal Studios Store and select merchandise carts will reopen, as will the retail section of Hart & Huntington Tattoo Company and Airbrush.
Hollywood Drive-In Golf also will reopen to guests. Parking will be free at the Universal garages, though valet parking will not be available.
Face coverings will be required of all visitors, as will a temperature check upon arrival. If you test 100.4F or higher, you will not be admitted to Universal CityWalk. Universal also is insisting that people follow social distancing guidelines by remaining six feet away from other parties. Universal will provide floor markings in waiting areas and queues to help people with that.
In addition, Universal will encourage people to use mobile ordering for Red Oven and Voodoo Doughnut through the official Universal Orlando app. More details are available on Universal's website.
Previously, Walt Disney World announced that it will begin a first phase reopening of its Disney Springs shopping and dining district on May 20. All Florida theme parks remain closed for the time being, however.Tweet
