News: Universal Orlando Debuts URest Areas Where Guests Can Remove Masks

We’re reporting LIVE from the Annual Passholder preview in Universal Studios today to see how a theme park operates with all of the new health and safety features that have been put into place.


While we were here, we learned that Universal has debuted URest Areas (similar to the “relaxation zones” Disney World mentioned in their reopening proposal).

These areas are where guests can rest while social distancing without masks. Currently, two URest locations can be found in each park.

In Universal Studios, these stations can be found at Central Park Lagoon and at Fear Factor. In Island of Adventure, URest Areas have been set up at Port of Entry Landing and Voyage of Sinbad.

While the seating inside these venues aren’t equipped with social distancing markers, signs posted around the URest Areas inform guests they are required to perform social distancing when removing their face coverings.

We’ll continue to provide you with more updates regarding Universal Studios’ new health and safety measures, but for now, check out our stay last night at one of Universal’s newly reopened hotels!
