BREAKING: Universal Orlando Extending Temporary Closure Through April 19, 2020

Universal Orlando just confirmed that its theme parks, water park, hotels, and CityWalk will continue to remain closed to Guests through April 19, 2020. Further updates regarding a possible reopening will be shared as we get closer to that date.

Here's the official statement, as seen on the official website of the Universal Orlando Resort:

We know Coronavirus (COVID-19) has impacted many parts of your life – including your travel and vacation plans and we will be eager to welcome you back to our theme parks and destinations when the time comes. For now, we must make the health and safety of our guests and team members our top priority and we will continue to take guidance from health agencies and government officials.

This means we are extending the closure of Universal Orlando Resort through April 19. This includes our theme parks and Universal CityWalk. The Universal Orlando Resort hotels have also temporarily suspended operations.

We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as needed. You can continue to check here for updates.

Please stay safe and take care of yourself and your family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a refund?
Unexpired single-day tickets that have already been purchased will be valid on any day for 365 days from the purchase date. Unexpired multi-day tickets that have already been purchased will also be valid for first use on any day from 365 days from purchase – but, as always, must be used within seven days of first use.
