They’ve issued many of the same health and safety measures we’ve already seen implemented at Universal Orlando’s CityWalk including all guests and employees must undergo temperature screenings and wear face masks for the duration of their visit except while eating or drinking.

Universal Studios Hollywood hasn’t announced when their theme park will be reopening at this time, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything! Of course, we’re curious if Downtown Disney will be reopening soon in light of this development, so we’ll be on the lookout for any news pertaining to Disneyland Resort too!

News! Legoland Is The First California Theme Park to Propose a Reopening Date

Now that California Governor Gavin Newsom says theme parks may reopen in Phase Three, Legoland has just proposed its reopening date.


The theme park located in Carlsbad, California is hoping to reopen on July 1st.

Legoland Florida is set to reopen on June 1st, along with several other Orlando-based theme parks, have announced June reopenings including Universal Studios and potentially SeaWorld. But in California, theme parks aren’t allowed to reopen until at least Stage Three, a phase the state’s health officials are anticipating will happen until June at the earliest.


As reported by The Orange County Register, California’s Legoland and SeaWorld were scheduled to meet yesterday, May 27th with San Diego County health officials to discuss what health and safety measures they would be implementing upon reopening (social distancing for guests and staff, increased sanitization, contactless payments, limited capacity, and employee training, etc.), but so far only Legoland has submitted a reopening date.

BREAKING NEWS! Universal Orlando Resort Proposes Reopening Date

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.

Universal Orlando Resort has proposed a reopening date of June 5th, 2020 to the general public. John Sprouls proposed a gradual capacity reopening for team members beginning June 1st and 2nd and to AP’s June 3rd and 4th. The proposed June 5th opening would be for the rest of the public.

Details about what a reopening would look like are being shared at this time and will be updating you with all the info — stay tuned!

The task force approved the proposal. Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings must sign off on Universal’s proposed plans before they will be presented to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Demings has said that he will need 24-48 hours to review the plans before submitting them to DeSantis.

Walt Disney World and SeaWorld have not yet presented reopening plans to the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force. Amanda Dukes, a reporter at WESH TV, NBC Orlando, said that Disney World is “not submitting a plan to the Orange County Economic Recover Taskforce yet and does not have a date to do so.” When they do, they will be required to submit a proposed reopening date within their plans.
