No more temperature controls at Universal Orlando Resort.
Starting this Thursday, it will no longer be necessary to take your temperature to enter Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay, according to the Universal website. You can also be three feet away from others instead of six.
Walt Disney World Resort also posted on its website that it will stop taking the temperature of employees, nicknamed “cast members”On Saturday, May 8, and attendees on May 16 at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Blizzard Beach. Typhoon Lagoon is still closed.
The changes come just days after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis suspended all COVID-19-related orders in the state, including mask-wearing mandates. Businesses can continue to require people to wear masks or follow other COVID safety guidelines.
And for now, Orlando’s theme parks continue to operate at reduced capacity and uphold most of their COVID rules, including face masks.
Disney theme parks continue to require visitors to purchase their tickets and make a theme park reservation through their online system. You don’t need to book at the theme parks to go to Blizzard Beach. You don’t need a reservation to visit Universal’s theme parks, either.
