On Thursday afternoon, Universal Orlando Resort gave its reopening presentation, and they are planning on reopening in the first week of June. The Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force listened to the entire presentation, and Mayor Jerry Demings has already approved their plans. A letter is en route to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for review and final approval.

If all goes through as Universal is planning, they will have a phased reopening consisting of three date ranges. As reported by CNN, Universal Orlando employees would go back on June 1-2, some annual pass holders and invited guests would go on June 3-4, and the general public would be allowed in on June 5.

Along with the reopening dates, Universal did state that numerous guidelines would be in place. Here are some of the new health regulations that will be enforced when the parks open again.

John Sprouls, chief administrative officer of Universal Orlando Resort Operations, detailed its plans from both the guest and employee sides. He revealed that employees would return to the parks next week to begin training on the new measures and methods.

Walt Disney World and SeaWorld have not yet revealed when they will give their reopening presentations. Disney has canceled resort reservations at all of their on-property hotels through June 13.

LegoLand Florida announced on Thursday that they are planning on reopening on June 1. The city of Winter Haven has approved their proposal, and they are now waiting for the state to approve as well.
