Orange County must endorse the reopening plans prior to submitting to the state for a final decision on reopening.

Similar methods for entry, queues and notices that are currently being employed at Universal’s City Walk will be implemented along with additional measures that will impact rides and attractions.

Some of the changes..

  • Interactive play areas will remain closed.
  • 3D Glasses will be individually handed out rather than being picked out of a bin.
  • Water and mist effects on rides and queues will be disabled.
  • Single rider lines will remain closed.
  • Virtual queue system to be used for the more popular rides.
  • Character meet and greets will not be available.
  • Characters that do appear will do so at a distance.
  • No Parades.
  • There will be no Buffets or Self Service.
  • individually wrapped condiments.
  • individually wrapped cutlery.
  • Contactless payments to be encouraged, cash as a last resort.
  • Menus will be single use disposable type.
