As local and state governments ease travel restrictions, even with the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic influencing Central Florida, your favourite places and formerly bustling tourist attractions are reopening.

Visitors can expect added safety precautions and social distancing measures wherever they go, in addition to reduced capacity and, in some cases, shortened hours.  Expect to have your temperature taken and carry a mask with you in case you are required to wear it.

Disney Springs®, Universal City Walk® and Icon Park are among a few of the places where residents can visit once again, but since the state as a whole is taking a phased approach, they won’t be operating like they used to pre-pandemic.

Of course, not everything is fully open just yet, which is why we’ll update this story as more locations start to open their doors.
