Theme park news out of Florida has been ramping up lately as Disney Springs and Universal Citywalk Orlando have reopened. Today Universal Orlando announced a phased reopening beginning June 1st-June 5th. It has also been reported that Disney will make their reopening presentation to the Orange County Task Force on May 27th!
Just as I mentioned on my livestream yesterday, I was hearing that Disney Springs and Universal Citywalk would begin reopening this month. I keep hearing Citywalk is slated to partially reopen May 11th and it is now confirmed that Disney Springs will partially reopen May 20th.
The shopping district will reopen with limited capacity for dining and parking as well as reduced operating hours. I encourage you to check disneysprings.com as the date nears for more information on hours and what stores and restaurants will be open. Guests will be required to wear a face covering when dining or shopping.
