Our entire family loves LEGOS! When we heard Legoland Florida reopened after months of quarantine for COVID-19, we were excited to get back to one of our favorite parks. Even at 16, this is still my son’s favorite park in Florida.

We know the biggest questions in regards to Legoland Florida Resort reopening is what is different? What are the new guidelines for Legoland Park and Legoland Water Park due to coronavirus?

What is Different at Legoland Florida for Reopening

Social Distancing at Legoland Florida

One of the biggest changes at Legoland is social distancing.

As we left Legoland Pirate Island Hotel next to Legoland Hotel, we were just steps to Legoland Park. We could almost immediately see the social distancing lines. Legoland has the cutest floor marketing reminding guests to continue social distancing.

legoland florida
Floor Markers for Social Distancing

They even provide floor markings in areas that may cause clusters of people. This included security, temperature checks, park entrance, queue lines, restaurants, and stores.

Temperature Checks at Legoland Florida

You will find a lot of opportunities to use hand sanitizer. Legoland does have hand sanitizer at the front entrance of every ride. In addition, you will find it throughout the park even the water park.

Touchless Tickets at Legoland Florida

They have touchless tickets at Legoland Park. The Model Citizens (employees) at Legoland use a scanner at the front entrance. You will just print your ticket or show your ticket with the bar code. The Model Citizens will scan the barcode to check-in to the park. Super simple and touchless.

You can also pay with cashless options. This helps eliminate those extra touch points.

Face Coverings or Masks

One of the big changes at Legoland Park is face coverings or masks. When we filmed this video at Legoland, face coverings or masks were not required.

legoland florida
Cute Face Masks in Merchandise Stores (Perfect for Kids)

Since then the City of Winter Haven created an ordinance. Anyone over the age of 8 is now required to wear a face mask or face covering indoors. This includes on rides at the theme park, too.

One Direction

Besides the social distancing with floor marketings, restaurants and merchandise stores moved guests in one direction. There was one entrance and one exit. This keeps visitors moving in one direction and eliminates clusters.

Closures at Legoland Park

We had so much fun at Legoland Park. There were a lot of the rides, restaurants, merchandise stores, and even carnival games open. However, there were a few things closed. These included water fountains and play areas. Since these both have a lot of extra touch points, they were closed for our safety.

Closed Play Areas

Rides at Legoland

Let’s talk about our favorite part of Legoland (well besides the Legos of course). It is the RIDES! Legoland Park has so many fun rides. There are a few safety updates in regards to the rides.

Social Distancing

The first big one is social distancing. You will find social distancing in the queue lines. Those cute Lego floor markers remind us to keep 6 feet from other guests. There are even signage reminding us of these requirements.

legoland florida
Ride Line with Social Distancing

On the ride vehicles, the Model Citizens make sure you are socially distant from other guests on the ride. This may mean there are 2-3 empty rows in front or behind you on a roller coaster or you may have your own ride vehicle for an indoor ride.

Cleaning

During our visit, Legoland employees sanitized the ride vehicles and queue. Legoland sanitized the rides and lines, more than any other theme park. It was quite impressive.

legoland florida
@Legoland Florida

Limited Capacity at Legoland Florida

Legoland Park did limit capacity into the park. We felt completely safe walking around Legoland, waiting in the queue lines, and ordering treats. We loved the limited capacity in regards to wait times. The longest wait was 30 minutes on a roller coaster. Every other ride was 5-10 minutes.

Did We Feel Safe at Legoland?

This is the biggest question we are getting again and again and again with our travels. For Legoland Park, the answer is YES!

Legoland Florida did a great job with their reopening procedures. Our family felt completely safe. Even with the limited requirement in regards to face coverings, we felt completely safe. Legoland is a big park and it is not very crowded. We always felt like we had plenty of space without any crowds around us (even indoors).

Legoland did an even better job in regards to sanitizing the ride vehicles. They did an excellent job. Way better than any other Orlando Theme Park.

Our entire family felt safe and would go back to Legoland tomorrow (if we could).

Just like all of the Orlando Theme Parks, Legoland has a temperature check (before entering the park). As you walk through security, you will get a temperature check. Security also has paper masks (for free) if you need a mask. They even have youth sizes for the smaller friends.

Everyone will be tested. If your temperature is 100.4 or higher, you and your party will be asked to leave.

The process of temperature testing was simple and quick. The thermometer was held close to the side of your neck to check our temperature. The thermometer never touched our skin.

Hand Sanitizer Everywhere

You will find a lot of opportunities to use hand sanitizer. Legoland does have hand sanitizer at the front entrance of every ride. In addition, you will find it throughout the park even the water park.

Touchless Tickets at Legoland Florida

They have touchless tickets at Legoland Park. The Model Citizens (employees) at Legoland use a scanner at the front entrance. You will just print your ticket or show your ticket with the bar code. The Model Citizens will scan the barcode to check-in to the park. Super simple and touchless.

Which Universal Park has Harry Potter? Both parks have Wizarding World of Harry Potter. With this new Florida Resident ticket you can take the Hogwarts Express and go to Diagon Alley at Universal Studios and Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure.

Do I have to wear a mask due to COVID-19 at Universal? Yes, Universal Orlando Parks do require face masks. For Universal’s Volcano Bay, you only have to wear the masks in restaurants, bars, restrooms, lockers, and areas with clusters of people.

These Universal tickets for Florida Residents is one of the best ticket deals we have seen at Universal Orlando. Be sure you book your tickets today. This Florida Resident discount ends on September 30. The earlier you book, the more time you have to ride Hulk, catch aliens at Men in Black, and drink Butterbeer at Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Universal Orlando Resort is the first theme park in Orlando to reopen with Universal CityWalk.

The Universal Orlando Parks are set to reopen next on June 5.

We know we have a lot of excited Universal Orlando fans! We wanted to share some of the new guidelines for visiting Universal Orlando and some of the extra safety precautions Universal is implementing to keep you safe.

Universal Orlando Reopening Dates:

June 1: Open to team members for a dry run
June 3-4: Open to annual passholders and invited guests
June 5: Open to general public

Hours of Operation:

These are the tentative hours of operations at the parks. They are subject to change.

  • Universal Studios Florida: 9 AM-6 PM
  • Universal’s Islands of Adventure: 9 AM-6 PM
  • Universal’s Volcano Bay: 10 AM – 5 PM
  • Universal CityWalk Orlando: 8 AM – 10 PM

Universal Orlando Safety Precautions:

  • Guests and team members will be required to wear masks
  • Temperature checks will be performed upon entering CityWalk; guests with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will not be able to enter
  • Staggered parking
  • Managed and reduced daily park attendance
  • Managed and reduced attraction ridership, show attendance and restaurant seating. Some areas and events may remain closed for now.
  • Increased cleaning and disinfection of food locations, ride vehicles, restrooms and other frequent “touch points” that go beyond Universal’s already aggressive cleaning procedures
  • Social distancing practices at all locations through the parks, within attractions and queues and at restaurants
  • Use of virtual lines at select attractions
  • Cashless payments and “no touch” policies where possible

Additional Universal Orlando Details:

Universal’s Resort are an important part of the guest experience.  Reopening plans are being finalized and details will be shared soon.

All Universal guests are urged to follow CDC guidelines and conduct temperature checks prior to their arrival.  Guests should evaluate their own risk before they visit – and it is not recommended that older adults or individuals at high-risk with serious underlying medical conditions visit the destination.  People who show no symptoms can still spread COVID-19 if they are infected.  Any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19 and Universal cannot guarantee guests will not be exposed during their visit.

For information on CDC guidelines, click here.  For more information about Universal Orlando’s policies during this time, visit Universal’s website. Due to the evolving nature of this situation, details are subject to change without notice.

    • UOR strongly encourages all guests to download and utilize the Official Universal Orlando Resort App for their visit. With the app, they’ll be able to make cashless transactions, order food and beverage from select dining venues, utilize Virtual Line for select attractions, and more.
    • UOR will convert all menus to single-use in dining venues.
    • Mobile Food & Drink Ordering will be available for select venues in the parks and Universal CityWalk as UOR works to make contactless options available for guests. Mobile Food & Drink Ordering and available venues can be accessed through the Official Universal Orlando Resort App.
    • Select rides and attractions will utilize Virtual Line – which allows guests to select a time to experience an attraction via the Official Universal Orlando Resort App so they’re minimizing the time they’re actually waiting in Guests can access Virtual Line while onsite at the theme parks and can view available attractions through the app.
    • Guests will be required to use hand sanitizer before boarding ride vehicles. For any 3-D attraction, Universal Orlando team members will individually hand out 3-D glasses instead of guests having to pick them up themselves.
    • There will be staggered spacing on ride vehicles and in queue lines to help place distance between groups. Please note that this may cause wait times to be longer than usual.
