Curfew Added For Guests Under 21 at Universal CityWalk Orlando After Recent Fight & Evacuation

CityWalk at Universal Orlando Resort is implementing some new rules after the entire shopping, dining, and entertainment area was completely evacuated due to a fight and resulting shooting scare. This curfew policy will affect guests under 21 years of age on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays effective immediately.

Guests under 21 will generally not be allowed through hub security (located between parking garages and CityWalk) after 9pm. There are a few exceptions, however:

  • Guests accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other family over 21
  • Guests staying at a Universal Orlando Resort Hotel with a keycard
  • Guests who have already purchased a ticket to a movie at Universal Cinemark theater will be escorted to the theater. Guests under 21 will not be allowed past security to purchase a ticket

Guests under the age of 18 will be escorted out of CityWalk by security after 9pm if they do not have a parent, guardian, or other family over 21 accompanying them. Guests over 18 but under 21 will be allowed to remain in CityWalk after 9pm.

According to Guest Services team members, a policy has not yet been determined for Halloween Horror Nights event nights, which starts in less than a month.
