Universal Reduces Social Distancing to 3 Feet & Removes Temperature Checks

While we typically only cover all things Disney, Walt Disney World’s neighbor, Universal Orlando Resort, has made a major change in their safety guidelines effective immediately. Universal is reducing social distancing to three feet from the previous six feet. They are also removing temperature checks. Check out the details below.



As updated on the Universal Orlando Resort website: “New Safety Guidelines: Getting Closer to Normal: We’re excited to enhance your Universal experience with the latest safety updates from local health and government officials. There are no more temperature checks upon entry. And Social Distancing between travel parties is now reduced to three feet (1 meter). Still, most of our original safety protocols remain unchanged—from wearing face coverings across our Resort to our ongoing dedication to cleanliness and sanitization.”

Do you think Walt Disney World will follow suit soon? Disney has announced they are phasing out temperature checks beginning May 16. Other relaxed guidelines at Walt Disney World include removal of masks for outdoor photos and the ability to fill and refill your own beverages at fountain stations. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more of what’s to come as Disney and Universal navigate CDC and local health official guidelines.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
