PHOTOS: Vaccinated Universal Orlando Resort Guests Go Unmasked Indoors

As we confirmed May 28, vaccinated guests at Universal Orlando Resort no longer need to wear face masks indoors effective May 29. We visited Universal Orlando today to check out the mask guideline change. Guests are unmasked in indoor spaces for the first time in nearly a year.

The mask policy change is first seen on the digital message board at the parking garage booths.

The digital message informs guests that face coverings are optional for those who are vaccinated. Unvaccinated guests must still wear face coverings indoors.

The wording on the safety advisory sign is similar to that on the parking garage digital message board. The poster also includes a physical distancing reminder.

The middle sign includes more specific details on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance. The right sign is the same as the middle, but in Spanish.
