Universal Orlando Resort, the Second Theme Park to Close Due to the Coronavirus

Today, March 12, 2020, Universal Orlando Resort followed suit with closing for an estimated two weeks in hopes of curbing the spread of the coronavirus. In a press release it was said:

Out of an abundance of caution and to assist with our nation’s preventive efforts, Universal Orlando Resort will temporarily close its theme parks.  The closure is effective at the close of business on Sunday, March 15.  We anticipate remaining closed through the end of March – but will continue to evaluate the situation. 

Universal Orlando’s hotels and Universal CityWalk will remain open.

We have created flexible programs for those guests who have booked travel packages or tickets with us. Guests can call this number for more information:  877-801-9720.   A core group of team members will continue to work on site.  Hourly team members will be paid for any work scheduled through the end of March.
