Welcome to a wonderful weekend getaway at the Universal Orlando Resort. As soon as we got to the resort we found new signage for the new health and safety guidelines.

Universal Orlando has updated its policy to eliminate the need for fully vaccinated guests to wear face covering indoors and at attractions.

We noticed immediately that most of the guests were not wearing face coverings inside.

We noticed that a lot of guests leave trash in the park and there seems to be a shortage of valet team members. First thing in the morning we found leftover pizza and face masks. Hopefully the guests learn to clean up themselves.

As usual, the queues for food were long all over the park.

We found a short line for food, waited and stood at the head of the line only to find out that the ingredients for nachos weren’t ready. Go on.

Some people figured it all out.

Despite being a busy holiday weekend, the backstage path between the parks wasn’t open when we passed. Looks like we’re taking the scenic route via CityWalk to Islands of Adventure.

Everyone is looking for a shady spot to get away from the heat.

It would be great if guests cleaned up after themselves instead of leaving trash everywhere. That’s sad.

It’s a busy day, but the crowds don’t feel awful. Now that the rides and queues have increased capacity, it seems like a lot fewer people are wandering the park.

One of the Toon Lagoon signs is now surrounded by building walls. Both signs were recently barricaded, but walls have now been put up around one of them.

The lines in front of Cathy’s Ice Cream and Comic Strip Cafe were long and almost ran into each other. Universal Orlando really needs to improve those food lines.
