We’re LIVE at the Reopening of Universal Orlando’s Theme Parks

Yesterday, we showed you a sneak peek at a semi-reopened Universal Studios.

Universal Studios Resort

Well, today Universal has officially reopened to Annual Passholders and we’re reporting LIVE to see how some of the new health and safety regulations will work in a theme park! 

Be sure to keep checking back as we will be updating this post throughout the day! 

We previously shared our experience when it comes to parking at temperature checks when we visited CityWalk a few weeks ago.

Temperature Check

Since we were hotel guests, our temperatures were checked at the hotel and we were given a wristband.

Once you have this wristband, you don’t have to get checked again throughout the day (at hotels, CityWalk, and parks). The color of the wristband changes daily.

Entering the Park

Today is an Annual Passholder preview but those Annual Passholders who chose to stay at a Universal hotel were allowed into the park an hour before everyone else (8AM).


Since hotel guests were allowed early access, prior to entering the park, team members were checking to make sure you were a hotel guest. From there you would go through normal park entry

Wristband Check

They did not scan our finger when entering the park. We simply scanned our tickets and went inside!
