Though all eyes are on Universal Orlando Resort, who has confirmed that they will begin opening up their theme parks to annual passholders only on June 3 and 4th, and then finally, to the general public on June 5, 2020, several smaller theme parks in Florida have announced that they will also be reopening in the near future, including the following:
1. LEGOLAND Florida - June 1, 2020
LEGOLAND Florida has gotten approval from the state of Florida to once again begin welcoming guests on June 1, 2020. There will be some restrictions in place, including a 50% capacity limit (around 6000 guests) along with temperature checks that would turn away visitors who read 100.4 degrees or higher.
Interestingly, though other theme parks are requiring masks for all visitors, LEGOLAND has said that they are strongly encouraging, but not requiring visitors to wear masks when they reopen.
2. Gatorland Orlando - Open Now
Gatorland is having its grand re-opening today, May 23, 2020, after making several changes to the park to promote social distancing. Markers have been added to all queue lines at shows, rides, food venues and retail shops, and all food venues, shops, shows and rides will also have reduced capacity.
Like LEGOLAND, masks will be encouraged for guests who visit the park but will not be required. Additional hand washing stations and hand sanitizer dispensers have been placed throughout the park as well.
