Masks No Longer Required at Universal Orlando Beginning May 29

While we typically only cover all things Disney, Walt Disney World’s neighbor, Universal Orlando Resort, is making a major change in their mask policy effective May 29. Both Walt Disney World and Universal recently announced they are no longer requiring masks to be worn while outdoors. Now, Universal will no longer require masks for vaccinated guests.


In checking the Universal website, the policy has been updated to read as follows: “Face coverings are no longer required for fully vaccinated guests. We do not require proof of vaccinations. Guests who are not fully vaccinated are still expected to wear face coverings while indoors. We encourage all guests to keep a safe distance between travel parties. We remain focused on maintaining the highest cleanliness and sanitization standards.”

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 16 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.
