We have been covering Universal Orlando’s phased re-opening of CityWalk — from parking to temperature checks, and doughnuts to sit-down meals.
But other than shopping and eating, what was there to do in the newly re-opened CityWalk?
We’ve already updated you on crowds, parking, and the new safety protocols in place, but now we are heading to grab some food and drinks to see what the new restaurant experience is like.
We are live from Universal CityWalk this evening as the shopping and dining district of Universal Orlando has reopened with limited operations today for the first time since the Resort began its temporary closure in March in light of the current global situation.
